- Willard 2 (2017)
Get loose and remain unphased on the Willard 2. Made with geometry that inspires confidence in deep, loose gravel or dirt, the ultra-versatile Willard 2 allows you to go where most bikes can't, but also offers the flexibility to take out on long road rides in complete comfort. So ascend that forest service road with ease, take that sketchy gravel construction detour on your commute to work, or bust out a metric century over the weekend and the Willard 2 will perform above and beyond your expectations on all of it!
Made to take on all kinds of conditions, the Willard 2 features an AL-6061 Alloy Gravel frame, carbon fork, antishock stem and seatpost with vibration dampening elastomers to keep you fresh and comfortable over chip seal, bumps and rough road. Mechanical disc brakes provide great stopping power in inclement weather and thru axles on front and rear make the Willard 2 more responsive and safe. The SRAM 1X drivetrain with 11-42t wide range cassette offers a huge range of gears to choose from and reduced maintenance. And the 40c tire fitment gives you the confidence to rail through loose conditions down roads that many wouldn't consider roads at all!

Great value in a gravel bikeReview by Jimbo
I have done roughly 500 mikes on this bike 50% dirt-gravel and 50% pavement. The Willard 2 handles everything well and can really be pushed for long rides and on real rough terrain. I just completed 40 miles of dirt/gravel with over 4000' of vertical and the Willard 2 didn't flinch. I was with two others on full mountain bikes with front suspension and I could ride down everything they did and crushed them on smooth decents. I like the seat and post but not a fan of the stem.. It tends to creak when stressed. The bike could shed a pound or so but overall quality is impressive for the price. My only issue is the paint. It seems to scratch easy and came with scratches during shipping. Otherwise a great bike.(Posted on 8/8/2017)
Solid bike for all conditionsReview by Denis the menaceOverall Quality
I toured one this bike for three months. It had at least 90 pounds of gear on it and it was great. The 11x1 works fantastic and the ride is smooth on those tires.(Posted on 8/2/2017)
