Road Bike Action Bike test: Why Cycles R+

ROAD BIKE ACTION MAGAZINE REVIEWS THE R+

“The trend for greater road bike versatility isn’t something we see as just marketing jargon, considering we’ve been preaching the very same thing for the past five years, so we applaud the arrival of Why Cycles and their R+. Out on the road, or dirt road to be more specific, there’s nothing to be left wanting, considering the large-volume tires and titanium frame adequately snuff out the vibrations. A long front-center and fork rake make it anything but twitchy up front and easy to ride hands-free while digging around for the bar in your jersey pocket.”

RYAN PALMER AT BIKEMAG.COM ASKS IS THIS “THE BEST HARDTAIL OUT THERE”?

“I don’t get it,” said one of my coworkers. “Why build a plus-size bike out of titanium? The bouncy tires will just mask those subtle ride qualities that make people choose Ti over steel.” As The Donald would say: “WRONG!” It’s incredible how much more forgiving the S7 is compared to the steel, aluminum and carbon plus bikes I’ve ridden. It’s the main reason I kept grabbing it out of the same garage that houses a half-dozen amazing full-suspension bikes. The S7 is a damn smooth bike to ride.

Why Cycles S7 Review: Rodeo Bikepacking

BIKEPACKING.COM TAKES THE S7 FOR A RIP

“The thing that leaps out about the S7 is how joyful and playful it feels. The front wheel lofts with an ease that eludes bikes I typically ride. At speed it corners with the exaggerated traction of plus tires, it leaves the ground the instant you will it to, and if you’re late with bodily inputs to a turn, the front wheel comes around startlingly fast behind a panicky correction. Uphill traction is exemplary, as one would expect from a bike with passably short chainstays and lots of low-pressure rubber. Uphill steering remains super responsive, but that means that there is no room for laziness: it takes steady input to keep a curving line, and that requires concentration and confidence.”

WHY CYCLES R+ FIRST LOOK
The Upper Class of Gravel Road Bikes has arrived

“The R+ ticks all the boxes for a road/cyclocross bike that’s intended for the roads less paved. The swoopy, Taiwanese-made titanium frame is loaded with the proper details that show the guys at Why are paying attention.”

Why-Cycles-R-Plus_00-1200x800

“In terms of distance, I’ve covered over 500km on the R+ so far. This includes putting it through its paces on pavement, forestry tracks, and anything else that fallen before me. Immediately evident was the bike’s playful feel. In fact when I first rode it, all I wanted to do was zip down a section of road, bunny hop onto the verge and hack it through the woods…”

Bikerumor’s First Look at the Why Cycles R+

 

It’s getting to be that time of year where a little (or a lot) of extra rubber is welcomed for your drop bar builds. Whether you’re exploring dirt roads and hidden single track that is overgrown most of the year, chasing down competitors on the cross circuit, or cruising the gravel highways, fall is a great time for a gravel/dirt road/adventure bike.why-cycles-r-titanium-road-bike-gravel-adventure-review-first-look-reynolds-carbon-plus-terrene-tires-chunk-wazia-elwood-3

That’s why we were pretty excited when Why Cycles offered up their new R+ for review. The most “road” out of their three debut titanium bikes, the R+ is one of those category defying “gravel” or “road plus” bikes we’re starting to see more of. The bike is really  based around 700 x 40/42 tires, but with clearance for 27.5 x 2.1″ wheels and tires and options like the Lauf Grit fork, the R+ won’t be confined to your typical routes…
