Gravel bike vs road bike
The biggest difference between a gravel bike and a road bike is the max tire size. On a road bike, the max tire size usually is 32mm in width with a disc brake. While on a gravel bike the max tire size will be 45mm-50mm. With a much wider tire, you will ride on these off-road trails where you never could imagine with a regular road bike.
Cyclocross vs gravel bike
The difference between a cyclocross bike and a gravel bike is the geometry. Cyclocross bike has shorter chainstays and a lower stack, which means cyclocross bike is designed in a more aggressive position for racing purposes, while gravel bike is more enjoyable to ride for longer distance racing.
Gravel bike vs mountain bike
