YouTube's Ty's Rides: Obed among direct-to-you gravel bike leaders

April 06, 2021

Obed Bikes

There are only two imperatives for Obed: good times, and good value. From the beginning, Obed focused on providing a fantastic ride, tons of versatility, and give you the all the choice, from wheels to components, even paint and decal colors... all at an excellent value. Nobody else even comes close.

The best way to do that? Sell direct to you. Today, everything can be ordered from the comfort of your own couch… Obed wants to make buying gravel, all-road, mountain bikes and urban bikes as easy as ever.

We were stoked to see YouTube content creator Ty’s Rides collate a few select direct-to-you brands in the gravel game, and Obed was at the top of the list! Tyler said of the Obed Boundary:

“What I love about Obed is how simple they make their site to navigate; you can pick your build option, pick from between several different color options, decal color options and wheelset options. The frames also come with a ton of rack, fender and bottle mounts, as well as a top tube feed bag mount. In my opinion, Obed Bikes have that boutique look, without that boutique bike price.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Give Ty’s video a watch below!


Obed is also the rider's choice as well. Ty certainly has a place to voice his opinion… but so do our customers, too! In fact, it’s Obed owners that are most vociferous fans of their bikes. 

You can find owner reviews at the bottom of the page for every model, but here’s a few comments from the Obed legion!

"Excellent all-around bike! Comfy and stable on long gravel rides, agile on rowdy single track. Throw the road wheels on and its great on tarmac... Even loaded it up for a 5 day pack-trip in So. Utah. Couldn't be happier!" - Ben

"The customer service, the specs on the bike and quality all add up to a great experience." - Michael

"Top shelf bike at a price a couple grand lower than other top shelf bikes! Light, good components, excellent service by email." - Kenneth

"The Boundary has an amazing build quality and love the option to switch out wheelset, stem length, seat post set back and handle bar width as well as choosing my own paint scheme prior to shipping." - Cody
