Road riding is changing. In fact, these days it's more like "road" riding, since so many riders are choosing to ride drop bar bikes on what could only loosely be called a road. While you can (and many have) certainly use a traditional road bike for this...why would you want to when there's a bike like the 2018 edition Marin Gestalt X11.
The Gestalt is part of a new breed of road bikes, called gravel bikes or adventure bikes, which expand on the idea of what a road bike can do. The Gestalt X11 is built around a durable, lightweight and adventure-ready Series 4 Beyond Road 6066/6061 aluminium frame and carbon fork with a rugged aluminium steerer, relieved head tube and bottom bracket shell. The gravel-oriented geometry gives the bike plenty of compliance for comfort over even the roughest of roads and gravel tracks. Front and rear fender mounts ensure that even when it's muddy, you'll be able to stay (mostly) clean and dry, and rack mounts make it an excellent choice for light touring or bike packing.
When riding gravel, having a wide gear range is essential. That's why the Gestalt X11 comes equipped with a SRAM Apex 1x11-speed shifters, a massive 11-42T cassette, and a 42T Narrow-Wide single chainring that ensures you have gearing for any obstacle you might encounter while simplifying the drivetrain to make shifting easier. SRAM Apex hydraulic disc brakes are reliable on and off-road, and have great stopping power in all weather conditions. The Gestalt rolls on a set of rugged Marin tubeless-ready aluminium double wall rims, wrapped up in Schwalbe G-ONE EVO 700x30 tyres with a Kevlar puncture protection belt.
