This x1000. I was grinding my teeth recently, listening to the Rouleur podcast on the topic, where they said "well, obviously the pros prefer disc brakes, since they're choosing to ride them now"....

If you can fit 28's on your frame and have a string preference for the pressure you mention, then it's a no brainer. I would not run 25's quite as low as you mention (60/65) for the exact reason you...

In addition to what's been mentioned above, I'll also add Fuji Absolute and Cannondale Quick to the mix. Of the Trek, Giant, Fuji and Cannondale I don't think you can go wring with any of them. They...

In Cannondale's defence, back in 2019 GRX wasn't around, and Shimano 105 does not come in 46/30T, so it was very slim pickings. The 46/30 is actually why I chose the Topstone over the Grail, which...

You do you, of course, but "I pass roadies all the time" is a meaningless metric that speaks more to the calibre of riders in your area. :D

On a local climb I get passed by WorldTour pros out...

As someone who is about to do just about the same upgrade, I am very happy to hear this. The combination of FSA crank and 105 FD on my Topstone has meant chain rub in the highest gears and i finally...

I think many people would agree with you if he hadn't also been a world class bully. Armstrong not only doped, but he also used his cancer cloak and clout to destroy the lives of anyone who dared to...

Perhaps this is region dependent, but the Eastons and Shimanos are waaaay more expensive than the Hunts where I live. So it's a bit apples / oranges.

In the online communities I follow, the following two models get recommended all the time:

1) Hunt 4 Season Gravel Disc (1589g, 24deep, 24wide)
2) DT Swiss Gr-1600 Spline

I went for the former...

I have the Zipp Service Course CX on my road bike, and it is relatively grippy / tacky. Can't say I really understand the fad of 'tacky' bar tape. It feels different, sure, but in no way 'better' (or...

I will echo what the others have written. I use my 30 year old MTB bike converter to a 'hybrid' set up to haul the kids either in a child seat, a Thule Chariot, or both. I don't know if it's just me,...

Perhaps. But look at his palmares since birth, and the things he's done in the last few years do not particularly stand out.

One common factor that you hear about what separates the top 1% of...

I approach it the other way. Instead of following teams or riders, I try to do all I can to support local professional races. Financially successful races are at the heart of any professional racing...

I am not sure about where you live, but where I am, of those three brands, Ridley is the best bang for the buck. Wilier and Bianchi tend to charge a premium at comparable specs.

I have experience with three different combi clipless pedals (Wellgo, Shimano M324 and Shimano EH500), and would highly recommend the EH500. It's what I run on my current gravel bike and I love it....
