Salsa Journeyer Apex 1 700 Review

Our Verdict Salsa has created a winner with their Journeyer Apex gravel bike. This affordable aluminum-framed bike is the least expensive model we tested with respectable all-around performance and versatility that stands out among top-ranked gravel bikes. We feel this is a great entry-level option for riders interested in trying out gravel grinding for the first time and who arent' able to have a fully stocked quiver of bicycles and don't want to be limited in how they can use their bike. The Journeyer can easily pull double duty as a commuter, road bike, or even a bike-packing rig with its wealth of accessory, rack, and fender mounts. It has a comfortable and somewhat conservative geometry well suited to more casual riding styles. Yes, it's the heaviest bike we tested, but we feel this is a great affordable option for everything short of landing yourself on the top step of the podium.
