All-Road and ‘Cross Frames — Vidarr/Jord, gods of forest, silence and Earth Starting at $1100headtube badge (cleaned) (Gallery)Vidarr

The ride started on pavement, but that was long ago. You’re well into the hills now, dodging a few potholes and breathing in the air that doesn’t see more than twenty cars in a week this time of year. The soft crunch of gravel under your tires is the only sound above your breathing. You come upon a wide spot in the road, and there are two men loading up fire wood into a truck.

They stop to gawk, and as you pass, you hear, “You rode that thing all the way up here?”

“Yep,” you say, and just continue on.

You’ll get back to civilization. Some time.

So many lines get blurred between an all-road bike and a ‘cross bike. But they really are different. Can they be used one for the other? Sure, but by doing so, you give up something. And by making one bike that is a Jack of all trades, it becomes master of none. Whether it’s long days off pavement, or the most intense hour of mud and barriers, Mjolnir Cycles can forge your weapon.
