STRIBE Review 2021
Titanium from Northern Europe
With a whole fast-growing gravel community in search of that magic carpet ride, a quick and comfortable titanium gravel bike should be on everyone’s list. The Stribe Juno offers a classic looking titanium frame with straight tubes and non-dropped seatstays or chainstays, with geometry on the not-too-sluggish side and room for 700c wheels and 43 mm tires. The specifications are modern and functional with a tapered carbon fork with fender and cargo mounts, is ready for either mechanical or Di2 set-ups, has a 44 mm headtube, 68 mm BSA BB, flat mount brake mounts, 43 mm maximum tire clearance, internal cable routing and 12 mm thru-axle front and rear. The finish is classic titanium with a split between polished and bead blasted finish, with the logos made by masking during the bead blasting process. Stribe offers their model Juno in five different sizes ranging from XS to XL.
The bike build is fully custom with mechanical Shimano GRX/Dura-Ace with hydraulic brakes, mid-height carbon rims and a mix of highly functional parts made to last.
