    Giant Anyroad 2 2018

    New to cycling and am
    Considering buying the giant Anyroad as where I live has a bunch of different surfaces. The only thing I am concerned with is that it might be too upright as have ridden the giant contend and really liked the feel but Anyroad is better for where I am. Could I replace the stock stem with a stem that drops the handle bars and achieve a similar posture?? Any help appreciated. Thanks!

    If you are looking for a gravel bike (I assume you are), take a look at the many other offerings in this category by different brands. Some are not as upright as others.

    Flipping the stem will get you down in front a little more also.

    That bike has a very tall front end, upright position for comfort. Flipping the stem will work some, a new stem may get you even lower. But look at a more traditional geometry bike that is a little less upright. I bought the Giant TCX SX as a gravel/do-it-all roadie and LOVE IT.

    And depending on how low you want to get in front, maybe a CX bike would be a better option for you than a gravel bike.
