Demos / Deals*** SOME UNITS OF 2022 KATAHDIN RIVAL STILL AVAILABLE! ALSO SOME BIKES WITH MINOR PAINT TOUCH UPS AVAILABLE AT SPECIAL PRICE, CONTACT US FOR INFO *** ***Read BikegearDatabase's review on the Katahdin.*** The first generation of the Katahdin has proven itself both in races, gravel events and in bikepacking trips. For its second iteration, the Katahdin gets a makeover with progressive gravel geometry and new features to make it even more versatile. A relaxed 70deg steering angle, longer reach, 75mm bb drop and 430mm chainstays increase the wheelbase of the bike and place the rider in a stable and comfortable position. The goal is less fatigue, and more speed for long outings and / or races. The internal cables for an adjustable seat post, the fork adapted to the use of a dynamo hub, a threaded bottom bracket shell and all the mounts necessary to install bags and accessories are among the features of the Katahdin. The frame is dressed with the Hunt wheels fitted with WTB Venture 650b or 700c tires, as well as the Shimano GRX 2x11 or Rival 1x groupset, which make for a versatile and efficient bike.3,419$ – 4,249$ (CAD)
