All Mod ConsAluminium Gravel Bike
Marketing jargon aimed at 1950s homebuyers is the unusual source for the name of this well-equipped all-rounder. In its original form, ‘all modern conveniences’ was a term that spoke to the future, leaving behind the privations of war. Constructed from triple-butted aluminium and oversized tubing, Pearson’s Allmodcons aims to provide excellent power-transfer and strength (rather than indoor plumbing). The result is our latest version of a feature-packed gravel bike which, in also ticking boxes for minimal weight and maximum comfort, doubles as a tourer or commuter.
Shaped seat-stays and a carbon-fibre fork afford both compliance and vibration-dampening, so the comfortable ride remains lively. With a taller handlebar height, lower bottom bracket and longer wheelbase, Allmodcons is perfect for long-distance riding. The GRX600 2x11 groupset is versatile enough for both steep gradients and fast descents. A mid-section alloy Shimano RS171 and WTB tyres deliver traction and comfort.
"Versatility is the name of the game. By allowing for larger tyres and by using a longer wheelbase, All Mod Cons Hydraulic offers maximum stability, whether you’re gravel grinding, training or commuting. Through-axle mounts front and rear provide sturdy foundations and reduces flex in the wheels."
