    Rondo RUUT AL 2 Gravel Bike
    The RUUT AL 2 is a versatile, stylish and affordable gravel adventure bike from Rondo. It's ideal for fast gravel grinding sessions, off-road trail riding and epic long-distance bikepacking adventures. Rondo has engineered it with an alloy frame, carbon Twintip 2.0 adjustable geometry forks and has equipped it with an 11-Speed SRAM Apex 1 groupset with a wide-ranging 11-42T cassette and PRO 5.0 FM disc brakes.

    Ideal for Training, Commuting and Gravel Racing
    The Ruut AL 2 is a great entry-level all-rounder. It’s the perfect choice for a winter training bike, commuter or your first gravel bike. Built around light and tough alloy frame and fitted with the same TwinTip 2.0 forks as higher models. All components have been carefully chosen and tested for reliability. Among them are the user-friendly cable-actuated hydraulic disc brakes, a simple and reliable 1x11 drivetrain, FSA crankset and high-grip WTB Nano tyres. This bike is responsive and has elegant internal cable routing for a clean finish. We guarantee you will clock up lots of miles on this model.

    Strong, Durable and Lightweight Frame and Fork
    With a super-strong and responsive 6061 aluminium frame and full carbon forks, this gravel bike urges you to explore further from the beaten track and advance your riding onwards from long-distance road rides with the confidence to nip off the open road and into the forest.

    SRAM Apex 11-Speed Drivetrain and PRO 5.0 FM Disc Brakes
    Powered on by a SRAM Apex 1x11-Speed drivetrain with a wide-ranging 11-42T cassette and cable-actuated hydraulic disc brakes. This setup provides gears for every riding scenario, whether climbing the steepest inclines, spending long days in the saddle or attacking the fastest descents, you have the confidence and composure to dominate every challenge with inspiring efficiency.

    PRO 5.0 FM caliper brakes are powerful, mechanically actuated hydraulic brakes with full CNC construction. The hydraulic system is fully sealed and maintenance free and the pistons use extra durable, cold weather resistant seals for extended durability in all weather conditions. Due to tight tolerances and durable sealing, the return action of pistons may seem slow at first, but this effect disappears after a period of break-in. This does not affect the performance or braking power in any way.

    Rondo TwinTip Adjustable Geometry Carbon Forks
    With Rondo’s TwinTip 2.0 Carbon forks technology at its helm, this ride features adjustable geometry by raising or lowering the front end’s angles. The first setting provides steeper angles and a lower riding position and is optimised for racing and sporty high-adrenaline riding. The second option offers slacker angles for a more relaxed ride position for maximised riding comfort that’s perfect for long-distance adventures.

    Rondo Tubeless Compatible Wheels
    This Rondo Ruut AL 2 Gravel Bike provides versatile and dynamic performance suited to a wide range of cycling outings and is perfect for attacking the trail as it is for all-day epics. It also rolls upon high-quality fast-rolling Rondo Wheels and quality tyres for superb pace and grip wherever you ride. This bike also features a top-quality finishing kit from Rondo that ensures you have dependable and stylish components travelling with you for the most sensational ride imaginable.

    Ready to ride

    Every bike from Start Fitness is fully checked & assembled before despatch and will arrive, almost, ready to ride. Each bike is assembled by one of our CyTech accredited mechanics and then packed into one of our custom boxes.
    This process has a lead time of 5-7 working days. Unfortunately during peak times this may be slightly delayed. We will however, aim to despatch your bike as quickly as possible. Minimal assembly, with basic tools, is required before you can ride. Assembly tools are not usually included. Please note: Some bikes are not supplied with pedals. Manufacturers don’t know if you want flat or clipless pedals - rather than send the bike with the wrong type, they leave the choice for you to make.

    Making sure you are home

    Once fully checked and boxed, we will contact you to book a delivery date. Our bikes are despatched on a next working day service (excludes weekends & bank holidays) for UK mainland orders, or a two day service to Northern Ireland and outlying Scottish areas. European bike deliveries usually take approximately one week.  

    Taking Delivery

    Any mechanical or cosmetic issues need to be reported to us within one week of the delivery date. If you do not plan on using the bike straight away, we advise that you remove it from the box and check it over ASAP as we cannot be responsible for any reported issues (other than standard warranty issues) later than one week from the date that the bicycle was delivered.  

    First Service

    After a few weeks of riding (we recommend around 6-8 weeks, regardless of how much the bike has been used), a new bike will need a service to make final adjustments and to re-check all nuts and bolts. This is necessary as the bike goes through a ‘bedding in’ phase, after which, final adjustment may be necessary. We recommend that this is carried out by a CyTech qualified mechanic.

    It is important to have these checks carried out to prevent any avoidable problems which may not be covered by warranty and to ensure the smooth running of your bicycle. If you’re local to us, we’re able to offer this first service free of charge* at our Newcastle store (NE1 6JE). You’ll just need to call our workshop on 0191 917 3825 to book your service in, and don’t forget to bring your proof of purchase when you drop the bike off with us.

    If you’ve had the bike delivered, it will be your responsibility to ensure a first service is carried out at a trusted bike shop local to you, preferably by a Cytech certified mechanic. Start Fitness are unfortunately not able to cover any costs associated with this service if carried out by another store.

    *Please note that this complimentary check-over does not include any labour to replace worn parts or to fit new accessories. All bikes should be delivered to us in a clean and serviceable condition, or a £15 cleaning charge will be payable.  

    Bike Servicing

    Bicycles need to be serviced regularly, as a guideline we would advise on at least one full service per year and/or a standard service twice a year. If the bike is used regularly in adverse conditions, more regular servicing may be required.
