UNBOUND Bike Checks - Four First-Time Riders That Crushed The Day

The dust has settled, and the wounds have healed from a wild 200 miles at UNBOUND Gravel, which saw a record high in flat tires and mechanical issues compared to previous editions. Just as in years past, UNBOUND is the place to find a full range of bike setups with everything from the somewhat traditional all the way to fat tire time trial bikes.

We checked in with four first-time UNBOUND racers to see what they rode and why they chose what they did. See the bikes of Whitney Allison, Brennan Wertz, Jess Cerra, and Alexey Vermeulen.
