I think so. Heck, my lunker butt rolls a 780 gram frame. That one looks robust for its weight.

Watch out for the Ben Franklin close, and tell the finance guy to kiss your arse on the upsell warranties, window etching, etc.

Yep, the warranty it comes with is pretty darn good. Even comes with 2 or 3 years of road service.

Last time I raced Boulder Roubaix, I thought I needed to be fast on the road and the gravel would just be survival. I was wrong... The road was slow, the gravel was like a crit. At midnight. I hope these help a bit.

We have a race here in a few weeks thatís 50/50 dirt and road. I did it last year on 28s and it was fine. Iím thinking this year I may try something a little wider, it may save some of the beating that wears you out around like 70

Gonna move by June 4th? Weld County Grinder is that day. 66 miles, but only about half is gravel.

I don't think this pic is on the route, but it's in the Grasslands that the WCG goes through.


No. AG did sign up for a gravel tri in Steamboat at some point, though.

Correctly guessed which of several options it was.

Is this an April fool's joke?

Some of my friends are plotting an early season century ride out to Lancaster and back for tomorrow. I think I will give it a try.

I should have had today's Wordle in 2 but ended up with 3. Not too shabby and still batting 1000. :bday:

Or give me an Outback EV and Iím all in.

I also recall that you drove around with the sticker on the window for several weeks.

Average is better than a fail.

It's April Fools Day. It's a good idea not to believe anything you hear in the news. Pretty much like every other day, I suppose.

WhyFi curious about your thoughts.

Challenge lists their Strada Bianca Pro as hookless compatible in 33 and up. Enve lists the 30 as approved on their 25 wide SES AR. Wondering if youíd trust it or stick with what the manufacturer says. Since Zipp doesnít test- Iím thinking I can trust the 30, but who knows.

I imagine that the 33 is about as fast as the GP5k 32 since the 36 is only like a watt slower. Iím probably over thinking it.

Also- I donít know if youíve used the Rapha down size, but if you do, you can use the jersey discount on the bundles. I got some core cargo bibs and a core lightweight jersey for 120 bucks.
