Riding Gravel has just taken delivery of a Fuji Tread 1.3 bike that Fuji bills as a “Lifestyle-Cross Terrain” bike, but are eager to have known as a good choice for a gravel road/back road rig. The 1.3 sits in the middle of a three model range that tops out with the 1.1 at a nice, sub-$1100.00 price. The Tread 1.5 sits in a $769.00 and this test model, the 1.3, is listed at $919.00.
Stay tuned for our “Getting Rolling” post coming soon and we’ll see if this sort of bike is a good choice for the gravel road enthusiast.
