The Rove AL 650 is a perfect entry-level bike suitable for pavement with tire clearance big enough for off-road riding. The Rove AL 650 keeps you rolling steady at a budget-friendly price. For those riders looking for a 650B-wheeled machine with all the features of its bigger-wheeled sibling, look no further. A 2x Shimano 8-speed drivetrain, Hayes disc brakes, and 47mm WTB Venture Comp tires make the Rove 650 AL an excellent choice for all-terrain ventures.
Kona 6061 Aluminum
Kona 7005 and 6061 Aluminum alloys are used extensively throughout our fleet of mountain and asphalt bicycles. Tough, durable, and light alloys, both Kona 7005 and 6061 deliver fantastic, reliable performance that lasts for thousands of rides. Much of our 7005/6061 tubing is butted and/or formed, meaning the tubing's wall thickness can be increased or decreased, as well as shaped, so we can fine-tune a particular frame's strength and ride characteristics depending on its intended application.
Bearing cups are actually pressed into the frame and are easily removable. An internal headset also reduces stack height, so the height of the stem and bars are more adjustable, giving the rider the best fit possible.
650B wheels and tires have a similar overall diameter to a traditional 700c gravel or commuting tire but with a smaller diameter rim and a wider, taller tire. The extra air volume in this new generation of urban and mixed-surface tires means they can be run comfortably at lower pressures while still rolling quickly on a variety of surfaces. It's the best of both worlds.
