The DB Podium 24 also fits larger tires

Forgot to add that the DB I mentioned has V-brakes. It comes with 25mm tires which are great for pavement but they can easily fit 32 and even 40mm tires for doing some gravel riding. Importantly it fits an ISO 520 tire so there are tire options.

It came with 24 inch wheels ( so the geometry was not askew) Claris drivetrain even a compact compact double!

Check Amazon or Craigslist for this bike. The one that came in red, the 2015/2016 model, was a step up than the later models. Later models came in white, and we'll put it Lee do it but just not as good as the ones in red.
