When we set out to design this bike, we wanted something that was fun to ride no matter the terrain. The Populo Quest can be a comfortable urban commuter, or a epic gravel bike. We wanted to bring the joy of riding on or off road to the masses, at an affordable price. The foundation of the Quest is its 4130 Chromoly Steel frame, that gives you superior ride quality, and strength. Fitting this frame with disc brakes allowed us improved tire clearance and a full set of mounts for fenders or a rear rack. So no matter how long your biking adventure is, you can carry any amount of cargo needed. The Populo Quests disc brakes will give you consistent braking performance no matter the conditions you're riding in. Moving on to Shifting we went to Shimano for its proven Claris components. Up next we fitted the Quest's aluminum wheels with WTB's Wedge tires. Those tires offer excellent grip no matter if you're on pavement or dirt, and its strong tire casing means that you can ride confidently even on the roughest roads. The Populo Quest is your ticket to new adventure, on any road or trail you see along the way.
