All-City Gorilla Monsoon steel "monster cross” bike w/ clearance for 27.5 x 2.4 tires

Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Very cool bike, I want a similar bike. This bike is more a lot more versatile than typical skinny high-pressure tire gravel bikes. I'd run it with Rocket Rons as a drop bar mountain bike and with 38mm tubeless road slicks on a second wheelset. I wonder though how it would look with skinny tires, a little odd, but okay with fenders.

I'm surprised you haven't set it up tubeless. I get punctures on nearly every ride but sealant does the job.

I change tires quite often and also change wheels between bikes (with tire change in the mix). I have some bikes setup tubeless where I know wheels/tire combo will stay on for a long time, like my Krampus rohloff build but I see no point in going tubeless on all my rides, I will go broke just buying valves, rim tape and sealant to do all of them :-).
