Pavement, Gravel, All Roads Point to The X
The Dropbar offers a unique experience when riding on trails. You have multiple hand positions to choose from so if one position starts to get uncomfortable you can freely switch between the others.
Dropbars allow you to tuck lower and put a bit more power down on the flatter roads. Not to mention the thrill of descending in the drops! The dropbar handlebar makes even the most simple of trails feel a bit more exciting and gives you the opportunity to choose your lines.
You'll gain a bit more bike handling knowledge and technique as it's not the typical handlebar choice you may have been accustomed to. Longer miles will feel that much better knowing you have more options to choose from to rest your hands.
This bike has so many possibilities from exercise / gravel rides / group rides / and most important to me bikepacking. The price is not even the best part its the company and there willing to go above and beyond with help. Outstanding all the way around.
Awesome bike for the money. I have been interested in getting into gravel riding and during a conversation heard about Poseidon. Glad I did. Bike came well packed in the “TV” box. The X was for the most part assembled but just needed a few things put on. Out of the box, the bike rides great. Handles roads and trails with no problems. Glad I found Poseidon 👍🏽
I'm 50 rides in and have had zero mechanical issues! I ride 80% gravel and 20% roads on this bike. Once in a while I'll spin out on a road descent, but it's worth the trade off for never running out of gears when climbing. It's been fast enough to get Strava top tens and scare some KOM's. I have ridden the bike with everything stock. The two water bottle mounts on the down tube don't really allow for using both. I wish they had an adapter to let you mount the bottle in the middle of them. The top will only accept a small bottle and the lower is an awkward grab. My only other knock is that they need more branded swag for sale! I got the T-shirt, but want a Hat and some riding gear next! Great experience with the CS team and they helped with sizing as well.
Love the value you get. It’s been a great bike. I own about a year now. 3 of my mtb buddies bought one to gravel with now too.
I was not sure if I was going to enjoy gravel so I looked for a solid low priced bike to try. Holy cow! Within a few months I sold my road bike and mountain bike. I take this bike on every surface possible. I keep up with others on bikes that easily cost 4-5x as much. The bike is built solidly. I have never once worried about anything giving out from pushing it too hard. Everyone I ride with is amazed at what this bike can do. If you are not sure about the sport or want to start and slowly upgrade as you learn what you like, this is the perfect bike. Also the customer service is unbelievable. They respond immediately. They solve any problem big or small without any arguments. The company and community is super active on social media. You will never be left hanging when you need help with your bike. I am 6'1" with 32" inseam and 190lbs. I ride a large frame. It fits me perfectly. I cannot say enough about Luis as well. He is engaged with his customers in a way that is next level. You will not regret giving them your business.
