Endurance bikes?

Hello,

I would love to start some endurance type events or long distance gravel rides next year. I ride a 29er that I love, but it is heavy and slow.

I hear the term 'endurance or adventure bike' being used a lot, is this the type of bike that most long distance bikers use?

Also, how comfortable are endurance bikes compared to road bikes?

Thanks for any information.

Benny

Have a look through the Century Bicycles thread ... those are the types of bicycles we've ridden for long distances.
