The Don


The Don is an affordable Gravel and Urban Assault all-purpose road bike. It is named after the Don River Valley Park, a bike path and wilderness trail system better know to Toronto residents simply as, "The Don". This bike is perfectly suitable for your daily commute, rides with friends, and your next gravel adventure. Handmade in Canada.


Please note that we are currently not accepting any new orders for The Don at this time. The interest in this bike has been overwhelming and we are not able to keep up with the growing demand. The impact of Covid-19 on supply chains globally has made life difficult for everyone. We will resume taking orders for this bike when we are able to produce them in a reasonable timeline.

"I’ve been enjoying the Don for a couple of months now. It handles well cutting around tight corners and over lumpy terrain in the depths of the Don Valley or on the trails of the Spit. As a new gravel rider, I feel stable, confident and agile on the Don. A great gravel bike for all skill levels."

- Kelly

“Have done plenty of rides since getting the Don, almost all gravel. Has been a phenomenal entry point into a gravel riding obsession and works equally well as a road bike double when my regular road ride is in the shop. Ayal and Gavin have been awesome getting me up to speed with The Don”

How we help select your size

We are available to help you select the correct frame size. While nothing beats an in-person sizing session, we have completed hundreds of virtual sizings over the years. We typically consider the following elements...

  • The bike model being sized.

  • Your overall height.

  • Your inseam length.

  • Your shoulder width.

  • Your age and weight.

  • Your flexibility level (can you touch your shins, ankles or toes with legs straight).

  • Your riding style (aggressive or relaxed).

  • Your typical ride duration in time.

  • Your typical ride length in distance. 

  • How frequently you ride per week or per month.

  • The terrain and road type you intend to ride.
