Utility, Gravel, Touring, Adventure...

When you say "I want room for fenders and big wide tires, mounts for rear and front racks, a bomb-proof frame and fork, mounts for 3 water bottles and a custom frame made in the U.S.A".... What I hear you saying is that you want a Rodriguez Adventure. This No Planned Obsolescence is a comfortable, American made, steel, classic touring bike with modern day and old school conveniences plus hand-built wheels with a 3-year warranty. You can run up to a 1.5" (or 35c) tire width and still fit full fenders.

There's Nothing New in the Bike Industry

Gravel bikes are considered new in our industry, but they are actually just a new use for an old design. An old design that we at Rodriguez never stopped building. That's right, the gravel bike is nothing more than an old school touring bike with different tires. A Rodriguez Adventure or the disc brake version Rodriguez Phinney Ridge are both perfect designs for gravel grinding, commuting or long distance touring. All you have to do is choose the Gravel King tire option with your new bike and you're hitting the trails!

Made in USA At Rodriguez, we've been building custom Touring (or Gravel) bikes since 1973 (not many builders can say that). We started offering lower cost options when the bike industry gave up on making well designed touring bikes. Just like our custom 1970's Rodriguez Touring bikes, the Adventure is a hand-crafted bike that is a class act right down to the stainless steel bottle opener on the seat stay. Whether you are planning an extended bicycle tour like Kurt M., commuting to and from work like Matt, or grinding the gravel like Nancy, this bike is for you!

What's that you say? You want even wider tires? Then you need to look at our UTB line-up. If you want this bike with disc brakes, you want to look at our Phinney Ridge.
