    Gravel bike

    What model Ritchey makes for the best gravel bike? I want room for 45c tires and cantilever brakes.

    Ritchey advertises its Swiss Cross with clearance for 35mm tires and its Break-Away Ascent with clearance for 40mm tires. I imagine both framesets a have a bit of breathing room, so maybe the Ascent will work...

    Just saw a Chinese carbon gravel frameset on Alibaba. Room For 40mm tires (700c) or 47mm for 650B. Tempted.

    I would nominate the Ascent as a stellar gravel/off road/adventure drop bar bike.
