The Chapter 2 AO bike is available as a frameset only, but it has a heap of features that arguably make it one of the most flexible and versatile gravel bikes on the market. There are a plethora of mounts found on the frame, a modular port system to support mechanical or electronic shifting, adjustable-length chainstays, CNC-machined chain guide for 1x / single chainring, removable rear fender mount and a lot more.

If Michael’s surname Pryde rings a bell, that’s because he was formerly with the now-defunct Neil Pryde brand. Drawing from the bike’s roots in New Zealand (the company is based in Auckland), the name AO comes from the Maori (indigenous people of New Zealand) word for Earth.

At the time of this video, the AO isn’t on the Chapter 2 website, but the frame modules should be available in August of 2019.

    Nice bike, with typical thoughtful Kiwi ingenuity.
    Michael’s presentation was refreshingly simple and straightforward , devoid of “sales hype”.
    I admire the Kiwi “can do” attitude, ie Burt Munro and John Britten
