A huge thanks to everybody who entered and if you didn't win better luck next time.
We have another incredible competition from our good friends at the Rider Firm; owners of Hunt Bike Wheels and Privateer Bikes. This time it is Cairn Cycles who is giving away an amazing BRAVe 2.0 Flat bar gravel bike to one very lucky reader just in time for summer gravel adventures and long nights getting lost in the woods.
Cairn describes the BRAVe as a "Gravel Bike, rigid mountain bike, monster cross, touring bike, back country or gravduro bike" We reviewed the BRAVe 1.0 drop bar version of this bike back in September and Matt was very positive about the downhill ability of the bike reckoning it was more akin to a mountain bike whilst he was equally impressed with its range and its ability to carry lots of kit for those adventures.
Here's what Matt said to summarise the BRAVe 1.0
"The Cairn BRAVe has impressed not simply with the motor and assistance on offer but more so the geometry and capabilities that the bike has. While the downtube battery would normally mean fewer mounting options, Cairn has added more, and combined with the generous battery, It creates a truly capable adventure e-bike that currently, at least, is missing from the market." High praise indeed.
Well, luckily for you, we are giving away a BRAVe 2.0 which is the flat bar version of the bike Matt tested, which should deliver an even more exciting off-road mountain bike experience whilst still more than able to carry all your kit. As it's fitted with Shimano Steps E7000 motor and that same 630wh battery as the drop bar version, the BRAVe 2.0 can take extended off-road adventures within its stride.
Here's Cairn to tell us more about the BRAVe's design and features:
BRAVe 2.0 takes the comfort, control and big tyre clearance from mountain bikes whilst bringing the loading capacity, flexibility and efficiency from gravel bikes. The result? An e-bike that can handle all of your adventures.
The Cairn BRAVe features a balanced geometry that wouldn’t look out of place on either a mountain bike or a gravel bike. Comparative to a gravel bike it's slacker and longer, which brings better stability and control, whilst keeping the steering manageable for the fully loaded days. The shorter seat tubes, taller stack height and 29 x 2.5 tyre clearance increase comfort to 'sofa by the fire' levels. The larger tyre width, matched with a more controllable 60nm of torque from the Shimano E7000 system and 180mm disc rotors, all combine to keeping you upright and in control on the trail.
Regardless of how you ride or where you ride, the BRAVe has a ton of useful everyday features that make this possible. The semi-integrated 630wh external fitted battery is hard to ignore, but makes room for frame bags, as well as faff-free removal and a massive range. Places to mount bottle cages and gear are evident all over the frame. We have 5 different locations, featuring 14 bosses to mount all of those big ride needs. Boost hub spacing makes the huge tyre clearance possible and a lowered fork bridge keeps fender compatibility
