As the saying goes, history repeats itself, and if gravel racing's short history continues to do so, it will grow at astronomical levels that blow other cycling and biking out of the water. Take the Kanza for example -- with its avant- garde approach to racing, eliminating the rule book and rolling with a gritty, down to earth attitude that started with just 34 people in 2006, and its larger than life growth to 3000+ eager racers in just over a decade. And with its counter-culture approach to the sport, it takes things to extremes, physically and psychologically, while taking a huge toll on your trusty steed. While you can condition yourself for the rigorous demands of 200+ miles of self-supported off-road riding, you can't train your bike to do the same. What we're getting at is that a special kind of machine has to be crafted to truly excel at gravel racing, and Cervelo doesn't take this task lightly with the craftstmanship poured into the Aspero Frameset. It's built to be light. It's built to be tough as nails. It's built to be comfortable. And it's built to go damn fast. It uses progressive geometry to tackle rougher terrain than even the slacker endurance road steeds can handle, and with a meticulous carbon layup that balances stiffness with compliance for a ride that's responsive and lively, but damps the jarring vibrations that rock you to your core on the long miles. The Aspero is built with modern geometry that's aim is to combine comfort for the long gravel miles, with progressive fit to help you soar to the front of the pack. Trail is Cervelo's secret weapon of choice in the world of geometry, and it comes into play on the Aspero to provide stability, regardless of the bike's size. The bike features a bit more trail than you'll find in road bikes, landing at about 62mm regardless of size, being that stability in rough conditions is a must, and each size uses a fork unique to its own geometry to keep trail consistent throughout sizing, meaning that ever...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
