Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

best bike with front end comfort and best with rear end comfort?

Gravel bikes are becoming more and more comfortable but still there are significant differences in comfort ride, even comparing front and rear of the same bike. For example, carbon GT Grade seams to have the best rear end in terms of comfort but front end is rather average in that area. The same goes with carbon Salsa Warbid.

To be honest, I don't know which bike has the best front end comfort. Maybe new Specialized Roubaix but this may be a little stretch to call it a gravel bike. Any other ideas for best front and rear end bike in term of comfort?
