What did you just buy for your gravel bike?

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.

What did you just buy for your gravel bike?

I've moved a compact Omega from bike to bike for years and I've always loved the feel of the bar. The Adventure arrived a few days ago when I was out of town but I just got my hands on it last night. I really like it so far. Bar tape should be here Friday so weekend project!

Only 14 grams heavier than the estimate from the ProWheelBuilder tool. That's 0.7% difference.

Panaracer GK SK were pretty difficult to get onto the hookless rims but they are holding steady pressure since last night.

Panaracher tires smell soooo good.



Significant changes to this bike very soon.

I have new Ultegra centerlock rotors, ordered four piston Hope RX4 brake calipers, Absolute Black 46-30 chainrings and will be attempting to use an 11-42 MTB cassette on these wheels. If successful I'll have a sub 20 inch low gear.

Neato. You have 15mm front axle, right? I'm curious if you'll run into the issue I did with CL lockrings. Hopefully not.

Sub-20 inch on moderns gear, you'll make those folks in /touring all kinds of jelly.

What fitment issue did you have?

I just realized the lockring which came with the rotors can't be used as the 15mm end cap is too wide to use the tool. I'll have to get the SM-SB50 external spline lockring.

Is that what you are talking about?

No...my issue was Amazon (because reasons) made the CL->ISO kit with 15/20mm lockring Prime, but not just the 15/20mm lockring...So I saved time and figured I'd just use that converter kit's lockring. Well long-story short (too late)...The lockring in that kit worked for my old Bitex hubs....but didn't work with my new wheels (allowed 0.5mm-1mm or play in the rotor even when torqued.

Even today that dumb lockring Prime shipping discrepancy is still there...because Amazon.

I love my Absolute Black chainrings 48-32. You will not be disappointed.

I went from a 46-30 FSA chainrings and the 48-32 ovals are easier to turn over on hills.
