Ridden with Patrick Brady from Red Kite Prayer enough now to know when he’s really into something, like more than the usual “Fast, new bike from whoever or whatever,” but something that put him at the “intersection of road bikes, unpaved roads and wildly varied terrain.”

Like the Diverge.

He loved it and told me so wild-eyed, sweaty, and almost spitting his words. Seeing him so lucid with expressions about the gravel bike, I insisted he write the experience down and he did.
