I used to poo poo flared bars because they weren't "roadie" but then I bought a Topstone that had them standard. After I rode them a few times I'm convinced, they're pretty nice on gravel.

Excellent condition with only a few paint nicks. Some say the fork is bent a hair, some say it isn't. Either way it tracks perfectly fine so I don't see it being an issue at all.

The FD is fine, it's the cable routing that's the problem. It gets bound up by dirt and pebbles and there's no way to clear it out without taking it all apart. It's really annoying.

Ooo. Both are good suggestions but I don't think either will work. Current gearing is 46/34 - 11/36. Willing to give up a little on the top end but not so much on the low end. It's hilly out here.
