Journeyer Sora 700c has everything you need for dipping into the world of dirt-road rides. The all-new aluminum frame and our Waxwing carbon fork deliver comfort and poise on rough roads but are just as enjoyable on the pavement and paths around town. You’ll find mounts for fenders, racks, Anything Cages, and other ride accessories, making it easy to carry whatever you need for your gravel ride, commute, or bikepacking outing. The 700c wheels and 38 mm tires roll surely and speedily over asphalt, dirt, and gravel for lacing together all-road adventures that don’t have to end where the pavement does. Shimano’s Sora 2 x 9-speed components have plenty of gear range on tap for whatever your ride goals may be. We believe Journeyer Sora 700c has all the best adventure bike features in an accessible package. Time to start making plans.
A thru-axle keeps the frame stiff for improved tracking and allows for consistent wheel placement.
The Waxwing fork features carbon construction with an aluminum steerer. The 12 x 100 mm thru-axle keeps the front end stiff, so it goes where you point it. We designed Waxwing to carry a load, with two sets of Three-Pack mounts and mid-blade rack mounts. Internal Dynamo Hub Cable Routing and fender mounts make it easier to ride in all conditions. Tire clearance is a huge 700c x 50 mm or 650b x 56.5 mm (27.5 x 2.25"), so you can run a wide range of wheels and tires. An abrasion-resistant plate on the inside of the fork prevents wear from mud and other road debris.
Journeyer is comfortable, stable and confidence inspiring whether it’s your daily driver, you’re ripping up dirt paths through town, exploring unfamiliar terrain, or entering your first gravel race. Spirited when you want it to be, but relaxed enough to leave you with the energy for long rides.
Journeyer features front and rear rack mounts, a Three-Pack mount on each fork leg, a top tube mount, down tube mount, and bottle mounts. With this many options, you can load it up however you like.
