I absolutely love this bike, I have had it two weeks now I bought it for commuting to work but I have not ridden the road bikes since the Kijote has shown up.Thank you Aventon.
Took it out on my local trails asap and then up mt. wilson the next weekend! It is definitely a tank that can handle pretty much anything you take it on..pavement, dirt, rock, snow & ice...love it! Please keep making gravel bikes! I recommend this bike to anyone that wants to start shreddin dirt but doesnt want to break the bank!
I’m one of those guys that refuses to spend more than $600 on the bike. I’d rather have a dozen $600 bikes than a few $5000 ones.
I knew when I bought this bike I was going to ride it more as a road bike on rough roads than as gravel bike.
I ride seven days per week, 25 to 30 miles per day, in North San Diego County. Some of the roads I ridee on are privately maintained or scarcely maintained by the county, have lots of gravel, potholes, broken glass, etc. and some of these roads do connect by easements and dirt roads, so a gravel bike with 700 x 35s isn’t a bad fit for this type of riding.
I do ride several higher-end bikes, and a few lesser ones, so my expectations for this were in the middle of the road.
When I unboxed bike, I had it biult within about 20 minutes. The only issue I had, was the fork was bent and I couldn’t place the wheel in it.
Aventon Had a new fork to me in 48 hours.
Initially the bike was a little bit slow for me, but it had a pretty aesthetic and it seemed adequate.
I decided to spend a couple of weeks with it as my primary bike and took on a lot of hills. This is not a stellar climber. That said, just getting my legs more accustomed to the heavy room/tires and the overall weight of the bike, I stayed with it and put on a little over 300 miles in two weeks.
I took a break after that and went back to an aluminum road bike with 25C tires. Then the rains of set in — and I fell in love.
The Kijote is a great bike riding on sloppy roads in the rain and after the rains. And in between rains I’ve been riding it as well, and I am full-on in love with this bike. It has become my every day bike, almost without exception.
I also want to say that out of the box, the front wheel was true, which is pretty rare, in the back trailer required a few small adjustments, and that was it.
I would recommend this bike for anyone as an entry-level road bike, and entry-level gravel bike, or even as an every day bike on r...
Transitioning from a roadie to riding gravel I sought to check out gravel bike options-- to ride off the beaten path or may be bike packing. I must admit that I hadn't heard of Aventon's claim to gravel bike fame, other than fixies. When I received my Kijote and assembled it over the holidays, I took it up for a quick 10 mile ride which was smooth, and the seat comfort was a welcome relief. I hit the gravel after a few miles on pavement, to my surprise the ride was comfortable thanks to the wheels. So awesome was the ride that I had to restrain from riding on and on. Most people I encountered along the way commented on the bike's color--sunset orange--whether they'll follow up with a purchase..who knows :)
While I am yet to take it for a long ride, something tells me it will be a great companion on my continued path to fitness and touring off the beaten path.
In the meantime, if you're looking to break it into the gravel/bike packing scene this may be the bike for you.
Wow what a bike! I've had so much fun on this bike over the past few months without a single problem. I was looking for something to take on gravel and some single track, not once have I found an unridable trail so far. I cannot fault the new Kijote! It's priced very attractively, it's very easy to assemble and i've tested the limits of the bike from mud, snow sand and nothing was an issue. Thank you Aventon !
