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.

This thread makes me want to get rid of all my (too many) bikes and just get one of these new gravel bikes.

Tom, that's basically what I did. I love the skinny tire steel road bikes, but my local country roads need something beefier especially after they finish chip sealing.

And now these new gravel bikes really aren't slower than full-out road racing bikes, so it's the "only" thing that makes sense for many of us. I haven't tried any, but just looking at them, I think I can imagine how they ride. Well, my wife has an All-City Macho Man, and I've tried it. I'm envious.

I picked up a 2010 Kona Jake frame for cheap a while back. The paint was very dull so I put some Rustoleum ReColor on and the frame looked brand new again. Barely a mark on it. I built it up single speed with some parts from the bin and tried to sell it. No takers. So, I rebuilt it with nicer parts and drop bars for my second bike.
In "for sale" mode:


In "keep" mode:
