    Put my Rohloff Speedhub on my Lynskey gravel ride. I put the SRAM XX1 back on my bikepacking bike.

    The Lauf is admittedly awful on single track but really smooths out dirt and gravel.

    If you haven't tried an internally geared hub you are missing out. The Rohloff adds about a pound and a half of weight over the XX1 drivetrain. The hub and wheel and other parts will run you about $500-$800 more than a complete SRAM X01 or XX1 Eagle drivetrain depending on what crankset you go with.

    Maybe more if you need an eccentric bottom bracket to tension the chain. I thankfully did not (miraculously).


    I'm using a Truvative X9 2x10 crank with a single Surley 36-tooth steel chainring and an 8-speed chain. Sturdy and reliable.

    But worth it, in my opinion.

    Some of you may follow the IGH forum. The Rohloff is the only bike part I've ever bought that gets better with age. I've had it for two years and have around 5000 miles on it. It just gets smoother and smoother. It's almost creepy how little drag this thing has considering what's going on in the hub. Really, I can't tell the difference between it and a derailleur (except maybe in the low, low gears).

    And it literally has needed no maintenance at all...and it's been caked in mud, frozen in snow, and dunked in creeks to clean it off. I changed the oil just because but the old oil still looked pretty clean (Rholoff recommends changing the oil every year or after 5000 km but I think it can go three times that distance at least).

    Another advantage is that the hub builds into a very stiff, dish-less wheel. The hub has a much larger diameter than a standard hub so you are using much shorter spokes, say the equivalent of 26-inch spokes on a 29er wheel.

    Not too fussed with the bars dammit.
    Too narrow on the hoods for standing climbing, too wide on the drops and rocky descents on the drops are not nice on my hands.
    Worked well on the single speed where I needed the extra leverage.

    The brake lines have been trimmed so I will need to get longer ones.
    I'll put up with them for a while and see if they grow on me though.

    Bars are a personal choice. Luckily there are plenty of choices available. I would look for some you like and change them.

    What bars do you have?

    Cowchippers changed my bike for the better! Those things are amazing, just enough flare for great control, I went 42 wide.

    Seated climbing on the hoods is fine, but it's just weird to climb seated.

    Yeah, the Cowchippers have less flare than those, maybe that would help.

    I built this frame last year. Fillet brazed steel frame/fork, XT drivetrain with 105/cx70 front, hylex brakes. Really fun!

    I found I wasn't getting much use of my Kent Eriksen hardtail (built in '08), so a few months ago I swapped the bars for some Cowchippers along with some Gevenalle GX levers and some old BB7s I had in the shed. It's 1x10 with the front shifter operating the fork lockout. It's a blast on single track and does pretty well on gravel too. It isn't the fastest with the 2.25 Ardents, but I may swap them out for something that rolls a bit better.

    No drop bars (yet), as I bought my Rapid 3 on a budget, but I love it for my commute! Way more fun than the Norco hardtail I used to run.Post Your Gravel Bike Pictures-img_20180523_170101189.jpeg

    I'm not the op, but that is the Croton Reservoir (with automotive bridge) and dam in Westchester County, New York.

    I'm not the op either but I read up on it, very interesting and sounds like a great place to explore on a bike.

    Yesterdays rain and hail filled up the normally dry desert washes so most of todays ride (30 mi.) was paved unfortunately. Did manage to find a little gravel though!

    The Checkpoint is a nice and versatile bike. Does it have thru-axles or QR?

    Posted this in the cyclocross forum but its not cyclocross anymore I guess. Converted to single speed Yeti ARC-x 700x38 Maxxis ramblers, 42-17 gearing with latest upgrade being a sweet handlebar basket.

    Gravel bike!

    Specialized Sequoia, WTB riddlers 700x45. This was my setup for a 100 mile gravel race, and it was fantastic. For winter and commuting, I can put fenders on it.

    Post Your Gravel Bike Pictures-chickenhawkrd-1.jpg

    Used this with 650b's on a 270 mile bikepacking race. So fun!

    Gravel plus?

    For years my go to bike for bike camping and exploring the dirt roads of the Mt Hood and Gifford Pinchot NF has been my LHT. Sure, heavy and sluggish but comfortable and capable. I did have a Vaya briefly but never really felt right on that bike. I recently sold off the LHT and my CC and put together this Crust Evasion. It's currently sporting 26x2.5 Surly ETs on i35 rims. I'll soon enough try it with WTB 2.8 Rangers. The bike can also accommodate 27.5 wheels. Haven't gotten out on it yet for a real ride as I'm nursing a bum ankle/foot, but soon.

    while the ~45mm tires are limiting in fresh powder, I find rolling on hardpack snow super fun on my Fisticuff! Anybody else rolling winter gravel?

    A few days ago I went out a bit in the snow on 32s. Yeah it was slow as balls on the bumpy stuff but super fun! I wish we had more snow here.

    We've had sustained cold and regular light snowfall through december here. I live not far from a lake with a park that a lot of people walk and run in year round so the paths are all well packed. No worry about car traffic or road grime and when the temps are cold enough, the grip on snow is surprisingly good!

    Sounds awesome.

    Sadly where I live it barely snows anymore. Maybe once every winter and then it melts a few days later. Nowadays it's freezing cold but no snow or slightly warmer, rain, mud and muck everywhere.

    I remember when I was a kid we went sledding all the time, can't do that anymore.

    Here is my new 2017 Revolt 1. Unfortunately it is 35 degrees so it will be a while before I can actually do any real riding but it feels good so far and I love the looks!!!

    first post!

    i'm in love with just about every bike on this thread! i wish i could afford some of these amazing machines.

    i live that broke life and gotta do everything as low budget as possible, so when i decided i wanted to get back on a bicycle i jumped on craigslist to see what i could find.

    what i really wanted was an old lugged steel road bike to gravel out, but after a few months of nothing (i'm pretty rural), this aluminum 2016 specialized sirrus commuter dad bike came up for a couple hundred bucks.

    it was pretty rough and worn, first thing i did after going through everything was convert it to drop bars and friction shifters, replace all the cables, swap out the worn out pedals for some plastic mtn flats, and replace the "comfort" seat with a fabric scoop.

    Post Your Gravel Bike Pictures-img_20190106_002522.jpg

    Post Your Gravel Bike Pictures-img_20190115_132210.jpg

    within the next couple paychecks i plan on getting some tires and finding myself a used 2x crankset on ebay to replace the original creaky, riveted, 3x guy that's on there now. the 8 speed cassette's a little beat, so i may go to a 9 or 10 speed to get a little more range while i'm at it.

    i'd like to continue to slowly upgrade/improve this bike as money allows. i'm hoping to find a used carbon fork for it to shed a little weight and add a little compliance (i've seen a couple sirrus carbon forks go on ebay recently that wouldn't break the bank) and i may do a cheapo carbon seat post for the same reason. that aluminum's a little harsh. some high volume tires will help with that.

    i'm going to make myself a frame bag for it and do as much bike camping as possible this summer.

    Those are the ones I went with on my project similar to yours. You can follow it here (even though it is completed and has since moved on)

    52 miles yesterday including some trail, lot of gravel, and some road. Raleigh RXM. These bikes are so versatile!

    Funny story I picked up a hound dog at mile 32 and no lie I didn't shake him till mile 39! Little guy was committed! Barking at and chased me down some gravel roads through Sumter National Forest. Half scary half wtf.

    Anyways, cheers to exploring places on bikes

    Well I rode past a house on pavement then turned onto a FS road and boom, got a dog chasing me. In this part of the south it's not at all unheard of for dogs to basically live outside. Owner maybe was home maybe not? I'd guess he was a hunting dog and likely he trotted on home that night. I felt a little bad but again, a dog is barking kind of aggressively at you then chases you....not a good time to stop IMO. He could have been just tryin to tree me like a raccoon or.......didn't want to find out.

    My new Giant Revolt 0. Loving it so far. Only thing I really want to change is the bars - I think FSA's new gravel bar may be just the ticket.

    First real gravel ride with drops. I was surprised at how stable I felt on the downs.

    And, now for something a bit different. A custom "cyclocross" bike from the Ground Up Speed Shop. I've put about 500 miles of gravel riding on this bike in single speed mode. I love this bike. Fits me like a glove. 40mm Maxxis Ravager tires, Salsa Cowbell bars, Thomson post, Chris King headset, etc.

    Built a new wheelset for it today. Alex Adventure 2 rims (tubeless) with a 2 speed kick back Sturmey Archer hub. We'll see if I like the 2 speed setup or not.

    Interesting. Just picked up my Revolt 0 yesterday and the bars are one of the things I love most about this new ride.

    Here's my brand new Kona Jake the Snake

    My new Jake the Snake that I got from Jenson last week. Technically, I guess this is a cross bike, rather than gravel, but it gets the job done on rocks.

    Guitar Ted has a good tutorial on bar/shifter position. Ive found having the shifter hoods level with the tops of the bar works ..YMMV

    Had a quick and sloppy fire road ride today. Road was 1/3rd mud and 2/3rds lightly packed snow/slush. Lots of fishtailing going on; I was wishing for a fatter tire with more tread in front, didn't need the 40C studs. I have a 2.0 Race King I got cheap I'll try next.

    A beautiful day for a ride!

    Swapped to Compass Snoqualmie Pass (from Panaracer GK SK).
    Transformed the ride - felt v similar to Vittoria Pave CG Open Clinchers (on my ex-road bike).

    I’m intrigued...any details on the transformation? Anything you can add would be great as I’m about to need new tires and I’m on Panaracer Gravel King SK 38s.

    How do you like the Gravel Kings SK? If you are happy with them, then get a new set.
    Do you want to stay with 38s, or go down to 35s, 32s? Or up to 40s? Perhaps try the regular (non SK) Gravel Kings?
    As far as I have seen, the two most popular are the Gravel Kings and the Maxxis Ramblers.
    I’m on Maxxis Ramblers 700x38 now and they have been great. I’m considering sizing down to 35s, or even 32s. Maxxis doesn’t make a Rambler on those sizes so I’m looking at Gravel Kings.

    Pretty happy with 700x38. On my Ridefast 23 internal width rims they measure 40. Live en and planning to get another set. Was just curious when poster above mentioned he switched and it transformed his ride. Wanted to know more. It’s a big word.

    Probably and maybe bit early to tell since I've only put in 100kms/62miles (dry weather) but the main points (one postive and one negative) I immediately noticed.

    + Noticeably lighter weight and eases hauling the bike down and up my narrow staircase meaning it accelerates faster; the chainstays on the Journeyman are longish so anything helps ; whether that's due to less rotating mass or whether the file tread pattern vs GK SK knobby pattern has anything to say I can't say

    Test run of some bikepacking gear today. All ran great. Gotta get out for my first overnighter soon! This rain won't quit except for a single day at a time.

    they all use a press fit bb too. Maybe not race bikes, but all the street/dirt frames do.

    I've been curious about this bike (Fat Chance Chriscross) since they were introduced. When I saw one in my size, in a cool one-off color, and with a demo/showbike sale price, I had to jump.

    Nice, what frame bag is that? (I'm a frame bag whore) That may fit my Surly just fine. I'm thinking of buying this one, but I like how compact yours is.

    It's a Wolftooth pump bag, just room for a minipump (under 11" or so) and maybe a few small things.

    I think we need a “show your BMX bike” thread. I don’t have one, but I think they are cool.
    What’s the benefit for an adult person? Good for training? On the trails? Or just simply cool?
    I don’t want to derail this thread. Maybe someone can answer these questions on the “show your BMX bike” thread.

    Hah. I was just about to ask if there was a “show us your bmx bike” thread here. Of course, I’d probably get a red square by insisting that 26” bmx bikes don’t apply.

    Yes, there are many benefits that cross over. The biggest technique, which is certainly stil learnable on a mtb or otherwise is pumping. After that, just general bike control skills, as I feel like a bmx bike is less forgiving. They’re also easier to manual.
    Plenty of fun to be had on kids bikes.

    Thanks, I really like the color! Haven't spent enough time on it yet to judge the ride, but my shakedown cruise was encouraging. It's a lively pedaler, handles well but tracks straight too. I love the tapered headtube-that alone sold me on the bike, first time I saw a pic! Tires are 650bX48-ish Compass Switchback Hills on KOM 23 rims. It'll have fenders soon.

    Crust evasion.

    This thing is so much fun. The tires are 26x2.5 Surly ETs. They're a bit overkill. Perfect for rambling and descents although a bit of a drag when climbing on pavement. But really, I don't race, I tend to ride solo, and I'm not in a hurry so who cares.

    The bars are Cowchippers although I can't wait to try this bike with a Crust Towel Rack. My intention is to use the "narrow (61cm" ones.

    Updated pic. Rebuilt the rear wheel to run a freewheel (was running fixed before). Been putting in pretty good mileage and doing my first gravel race this weekend.

    Trek Checkpoint ALR5 frame I built. It has adjustable dropouts and lots of clearance. Those are my old spare 27.5 mtb wheels I had hanging in the garage. Bontrager XR2s in 2.2 cleared great after some minor dishing of the rear wheel.

    My mtb has a cracked rim, so I did most of my usual singletrack loop on it the other day and it handled everything great.

    It usually looks like this:

    Melting snow is a plus! Got to get out on a short ride to burn in the brake pads. They’re not so bad once set in, but definitely not hydraulic power...just more modulation
    Enjoy the ride...

    Fisticuff? I have an original Jabber I converted. It's a hoot but could be a bit better as I'm stretched out just a tad too much.

    Yep, it's the last gen Fisticuff... actually one of the last frame sets they sold I believe. I actually acquired it by bad luck, I broke my Jabberwocky frame and they didn't have any left for warranty issues. They ended up giving me this Fisticuff frameset in an attempt to honor their warranty. If I am being completely honest, I wasn't really excited about getting it and I had to do quite a bit of bike shuffling once I got it. I had a Kona Rove that I sold to buy a new SS MTB frame to replace the Jabberwocky, then built this up with a bunch of stuff from my parts bin. I can't complain too much though, it's been great through this winter and it actually fits me really well.
