John Day

 

The John Day is “just a road bike” in the same way that a Swiss Army Knife is “just a knife.” It’s an elegantly simple tool you’ll be glad to have along with you, no matter what riding task you face.

We’ve distilled our experience with our Elwood, Audi Duo and Firewood do-it-all disc road bikes into a lightweight frameset built to tame vibration better than anything we’ve ever made. The “longbow” seat stays, wide/flat down tube, curved top tube and hollow chainstays augment the Total Ride Quality of wood, making this a great road bike- no matter what road you ride. The all-road geometry features a long wheelbase, generous BB drop and a tall headtube to let you enjoy the scenery without veering off into it...until you want to. Backcountry roads are accessible with clearance for 700x40 tires, fenders and rack compatibility*.
