Kona Rove NRB
This is the Kona NRB. It’s what the kids are calling a “Gravel Bike” these days. Kona thinks it’s the definition of a New Road Bike (NRB), and they may be right.
Road bikes are more versatile than ever. A lot of them, like this Kona, have wheels for pavement as well as dirt. They have disc brakes, wide handlebars and lots of attachment points in case you feel like installing racks, fenders, or other storage packs.
The tires on these bikes measure a whopping 47mm wide (on a 650b size rim) so you get a very stable, really comfortable, and surprisingly fast ride.
There’s also the Rove NRB DL. I think the “DL” stands for delicious, but I think I’ll pass on testing that theory.
The DL version has hydraulic disc brakes, Shimano Ultegra shifting, and a really great looking gold paint job.
