› For those who like to go on roads least travelled-on drop bars
ravel bikes, what can they really do in a country like Malaysia where there are no designated gravel tracks for people to have fun on? Well, in our eyes, the term is just another name for bikes that can travel anywhere for those desperately seeking adventure off the beaten paths. These have all the attributes you need for a day, week or month out adventuring.
One such bike that is especially built for these types of travels is the Four Corners. The Four Corners is
Ga relaxed geometry chromoly adventure bike that has plenty of kit mount points ready for anything that the owner wants to take the bike through. It’s not the lightest bike in the world, but what it lacks in lightweightness, it makes up for by excelling in durability and comfort.
It can either accept a 650b wheelset or a larger 700c pair of wheels, making it one of the most versatile bikes available in the market. The Four Corners rides like a heavy, expensive vehicle (think Mercedes’ S-class) but has a wide range (3x9) gear ratio to help it either push through on rough roads or hilly city climbs.
Once moving, it cruises effortlessly and its more upright position is perfect for long haul travelling on the road. It comes standard with 650b knobbly yet simultaneously smooth tyres which double as suspension, which really do save your hands and wrists from a visit to the doctors.
