Cervelo Aspero

The Cervelo Aspero is a race-ready gravel bike, with a road bike geometry and an awesome paint job. I will be using it as both a road bike and gravel bike, just by swapping between the road wheelset and the gravel wheelset.

  1. This is exactly what I’m considering doing. But I’m also tempted by the Open Wi.De. Please tell us how the Aspero rides as both a road and gravel bike combo!

    1. The Open Wide is only available as a front single system, so it is not suitable ad a proper road bike.
      If you read other reviews, you will find that the Aspero performs very well as both a road bike and gravel bike. To me, it is as fast as any road bike when I put on the road wheelset, justhttps://handsonbike.blogspot.com/2020/05/cervelo-aspero-road-vs-gravel-setup.html that it is a tiny bit heavier.

    1. I'm 168 cm, fits nicely on size 51. Best to try both sizes, check out the reach, stand over height and toe overlap.

    1. You can use a Shimano 9 speed MTB shifter. Such as SLM2010, SLM2000, SLM4000, SLM3000.

  7. Hello,

    I just bought this bike last week, and did 100+ miles on road and gravel. It is a dream!
    You still have to paddle for your speed, but it picks up very easy. I have the GPX 2By setup, all stock up to now. I came to your site while I was struckling with the trail mixer, or more specific the front brake. I thing I am missing this adaport, I have to ask the bike shop if they still have it. I got a nice top tube back with the bike, should have been in there!
