The next wave

The modern ALL Road bike

The Adventure Road model bridges the gap between a road racer and a Cyclocross bike. With a little added stability and room for high volume tires this versatile machine opens up the door to new adventures. Travel more comfortably and confidently over rough roads as the enhanced geometry blasts through the rough stuff better than a road racer.

As a pioneer of the modern Adventure Road Bike, John is one of the most experienced frame builders of these super fun machines. Over the years John has honed the build specifications of his ARB offerings to perfection. Santa Cruz Co. and the greater bay area have proven the perfect testing grounds for these mixed terrain mashers. It’s no surprise this has become our most popular model.

Completed Adventure Road Bikes

I absolutely love the bike, it is a dream to ride. On my commute it is ridiculous fast, and super comfortable, and it gets a ton of comments at stop lights. Thank you so much, this is just fantastic work. I’m getting giddy

In a word the bike is phenomenal! I got out for a couple of rides over the weekend and was able to get a feel for it. The bike handles well beyond my expectations! The way the bike tips into corners is so smooth you almost don’t have to think about it.
