Mongoose Selous Expert Gravel Bike
The Mongoose Selous Expert is the paragon of versatility as it's equipped to excel in cyclocross, gravel grinding, or commuting. The Selous Expert features Mongoose Gravel Grinder double-butted aluminum tubing for both strength and light weight while the carbon fiber fork ensures a stellar ride quality no matter the terrain. Mongoose wisely equipped the frameset to clear 40c width tires plus routed all the cables along the top tube to keep them out of the way of mud and grime. Shifting and braking duties are superbly handled by the 2x11-speed Shimano STRS-785 units which are also set up for hydraulic braking. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors front and rear ensure exceptional stopping power no matter how sloppy the conditions. The derailleurs and 11-32T cassette are all Shimano 105 for the epitome of dependability and reliability while the FSA Gossamer crankset features 50/34T chainrings for a broad range of gearing to handle the diverse terrain that is the Selous Expert's stomping grounds. The wheels feature Alex Volar 2.3 tubeless ready rims that are laced to VP aluminum hubs equipped with thru-axles front and rear. A pair of 700x40c WTB Nano tires are voluminous, speedy, and feature WTB's TCS folding bead that's designed for tubeless set-ups.

Comments about Mongoose Selous Expert Gravel Bike:

Did a fair about of shopping around as this was my first cross bike. Really like the componentry on this one as it's a full step up from the competition (105 drivetrain, hydraulic disks...) but for only a few hundred more as Nashbar was running a special sale that knocked another 20% off.

Bike is all set up for commuting (lights and fenders) and have a few rides under my belt and nothing but happy at this point.
