    AWOL Comp

    2018 AWOL Comp

    Whether you're using it as an all-out commuter rig during the week, or you're exploring the road less traveled on the weekend, you'll find that the AWOL Comp is equally capable.

    Starting at the frame, it features heat-treated, custom-butted Cr-Mo tubing that's sure to stand up to years of hard riding and abuse. The geometry is also what you would called "dialed," as it's at once comfortable, efficient, and purpose-built to carrying big loads. We also gave this iteration a full bevy of features to further make it ready for the long haul, like fender & rack mounts, a kickstand plate (believe us, this is handier than you know with a loaded rig), and a Dynamo front hub that generates electricity to power lights without needing to plug-in.

    For the spec, we chose SRAM Rival 1x in order to keep things reliable and simple, go-anywhere Ground Control tires, and hydraulic disc brakes.

    Great bike, great build kit, very well thought out!

    Riding this bike is a pleasure every. single. time. It never ceases to amaze me how amazing it is. It's the most maintenance free bike I've ever owned. I'm never doing anything other than a 1x for the rest of my days! This bike looks even more sharp in person than in the above picture. I always get complemented or questioned about my stead. I love that it's made of quality steel. No rust after several years of ownership to be spoken of! Have taken it on a 340 mile bikepacking journey and I commute everyday as well as ride almost every weekend. This bike does it all and does it well! Look no further if you have been looking at this one for a while! You will not be disappointed I assure you! Worth every last penny!
