The CGR AL is perfect for winter rides; the ability to run with a wider tyre for added grip and comfort coupled with the optional addition of mudguards mean it’s a confidence boosting and practical option for the UK roads which tend to be filthy and often slippery in winter. The ability to add a 47c tyre on the 650B wheelset also means that if the weather turns a little colder and you’d rather avoid the roads, you can easily mix up the scenery, switching to an even bigger tyre to enjoy some time off-road in the snow. It’s a bike that really doesn’t leave you with an excuse to stay indoors.
