Polish gravel specialist Rondo has released its MYLC gravel bike that’s designed to extend what’s rideable on a gravel bike, with a new off-road offering that’s “playful, yet stable and descent oriented.”

Amongst the very best gravel bikes, there are those which are heavily influenced by road bikes and those that are not too dissimilar from cross-country mountain bikes.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
