057 - Lauf explains the wild new Seigla gravel bike

April 11, 2022

We head to Iceland to ride the all-new Lauf Seigla, an aggressive reinterpretation of what a race gravel bike can be.

With massive 700x57 (29x2.25") tire clearance, more rear compliance, and stiffer leaf spring suspension fork, it's a monster that's also quite fast.

In this interview, we talk with founder and president Benedikt Skulason about the new design, how to hack it to use a dropper seatpost, and the tricks they used to give it so much room for big tires without changing the geometry from the original True Grit frame!
