Trying to decide which type of bike you want to invest in can be challenging, especially when you don't want to limit yourself to one type of riding. If you're looking for a bike that you can ride around town then take to the gravel bike path on the weekends, we'd recommend Diamondback's Haanjo Tero Complete Road Bike.

The bike also includes Tektro mechanical disc brakes for dependable, consistent stopping power when descents or wea...
