Felt Broam 60
The the most affordable model of Felt's gravel bikes, the Broam 60 is constructed of butted aluminum with a full carbon fiber fork.
The shifters, front and rear derailleurs are Claris with a Shimano crankset, 46/34 chainrings and hill friendly 11-34 rear cassette.
The mechanical disc brake calipers are Tektro Lyra mechanical cable actuated with 160mm wavey rotors.
Braking on the Broam 60 is better than standard rim brake calipers, particularly off-pavement, but not as powerful as full hydraulic discs.
Gravel bikes, not just this one, have a body position that is the most comfortable that we have ever ridden on a drop bar bike.
So if you are riding for recreation, fitness, touring or commuting and not interested in speed above all else, this bike really is a good choice.
