Bossi Grit | Mark's Custom Build

Comfortable, adaptable, durable -- and a touch of scarlet

Home / Custom Builds / Mark's Bossi Grit SX

The brief

Mark was looking to expand from road riding into gravel riding. His new bike would be used mostly off-road, but still need to retain the ability to go on-road.

He also really likes red things.

The bike

A little bit of road and a lot of gravel? That would be a Bossi Grit SX frameset to the rescue.

The Grit is a versatile beast, and is comfy enough for all-day rides but also has the extra tyre clearance required for those technical rides when you want more tread.

For a groupset, we opted for Shimano GRX in a 2X setup to give Mark closer ratios, and not such a jump between gears when he's riding on the road. Did we go for Di2? Of course, because if you can go electronic, you go electronic.

A Bossi wheelset with 40mm carbon rims would give Mark the aerodynamic properties he was looking for, paired with a grippy and durable pair of Panaracer Gravel King Slicks.

Easton carbon EC70 AX bars offer a great mix of lightness and comfort, and we continued the comfort theme with the SQ-Lab 611 saddle, a model Mark already loved.

All we needed to do were the finishing touches: a hand-painted head tube and chain stay, plus -- the cherry on top -- a matching Garbaruk top cap.

This red-tinged Bossi was ready to roll.
