Steel, Carbon fork, Ultegra and full hydros for $2000. Seems like the best deal I've ever seen. More here:http://www.bikerumor.com/2016/04/25/soc16-new-breezer-inversion-flips-gravel-switch/#more-128000

The $1,400 105 version sounds even better.  It doesn't come with an Ultegra crankset anyway.  I'd get the 105 and use that $600 towards an upgraded wheelset.

According to Breezer's website and Bicycling Magazine's first ride review it is about 20 pounds (size 56), which seems really light for a steel frame bike?  Anyone have actual experience with the ride quality?

I have the same question about anyone having experience.

I noticed that although the stock tires are only 30mm, they can go up to 40mm wide.  With the stock tires, this is closer to a road bike than many bikes discussed on this forum. 

Although Performance Bike sells this on the web, they don't seem to stock in their stores. Otherwise I would have already test ridden.

I'd love to hear reports on this one too.  At first I wasn't crazy about the mix of flat mount and post mount brakes, but the reasoning for using post on the rear makes sense and looks good.  Overall it looks like a well thought out bike.  I'd probably be just fine with 38-40 max clearance since 35 USH tires do well on the gravel that I ride, but that might not be enough for other riders/terrain.

I had a Breezer Jet Stream mtn bike that I bought in 1997 and finally parted with it in 2015. Almost instantly regretted selling it. Breezer make a great bike (altho they went through a weird phase of doing nothing but cruisers for a while).

I'm going to make a visit to a bike shop a few hours from me that allegedly carries Breezer and hope to see an Inversion there. Very unlikely they'd have one in my size (XS) but at least I hope to check out the geometry and build quality. Assuming it lives up to the reputation, I might be placing an order for one soon.
