Journeyman Apex 1 650 offers the comfort and traction of a wider tire, and you'll feel the difference immediately when you go off road. It also features SRAM Apex 1 gearing, which is perfect for venturing farther off the beaten path while riding or racing gravel.


  • Designed to Meet Your Needs

    We offer our Journeyman model in two different wheel/tire sizes (700c x 37/38mm or 650b x 2.1") as well as in two different handlebar styles (drop bar or flat bar). There is a Journeyman to meet your needs as a rider

  • Journeyman Specific Aluminum Tubing

    Journeyman utilizes the same custom toptube and downtube we developed for the Warbird Aluminum, with new seatstays, chainstays, and dropouts in 6061-T6 aluminum to match. The entire frame is then heat treated to T6 alloy standards for extra strength and durability

  • 650b x 2.1" Wheel/Tire Spec

    650b wheels with 2.1" tires provide a high-volume, plush ride and increased traction for increased stability on rougher surfaces

  • Salsa Cowbell Drop Bar Handlebar

    Drop bars provide multiple hand positions, increasing comfort and efficiency on long rides. They also provide the rider a more aerodynamic position when stiff headwinds arise

  • Fantail Deluxe Fork

    Feature-packed carbon fork with a tapered steerer and flat-mount brake. A crown light mount, fender eyelets, mid-blade mounts for low-rider racks, and Three-Pack mounts for our Anything Cages or water bottles help add to the potential length of your rides

  • Journeyman Geometry

    Journeyman geometry was developed from years of riding our Vaya and Warbird. Taking cues from both, Journeyman is comfortable stable and confidence inspiring whether it's your daily driver, you're ripping up dirt paths into and 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

  • Full-Length Internal Cable Routing

    Full-length housing improves shifting performance in poor conditions and increases use time between maintenance intervals. Internal routing for a clean, uncluttered look.

  • Front and Rear Fender Mounts

    Integrated front and rear fender mounts for drier riding in inclement weather.

  • Front and Rear Rack Compatible

    Low-rider rack capability on the fork with mid-blade mounts with integrated mounts for a rear rack. For optimal rear rack fit, we recommend our Wanderlust Rack

  • Toptube Bag Mounts

    Install our EXP Series Toptube bag using Journeyman's integrated toptube mounts
