    Post Your Gravel Bike Pictures



    2019 Niner RLT9 steel. Just got her a few weeks ago, two rides on her, already converted to 1x11 and 650b wheels and tires (Stanís Crest). Felt like the front end could use some more suppleness (#thesupplelife lol) and traction, and didnít want too much toe overlap as I was already experiencing it with 700x38c tires.

    Went 1x11 because I donít much like front deraillieurs and I live in a fairly flat place.

    (Edit) Still waiting on the front rotor.

    Nice ride! Out of curiosity, why the two different bar tapes?

    Itís actually just one bar tape, Supacaz Star Fade, check it out on the google! Although mine may be done wrong on the part where the color changes, I dunno.

    Still fiddling with riding position and placement of levers.

    It feels light and is no heavier than it needs to be, but I haven't weighed it. However, although I wasn't aiming for a weight weenie build, I had lightness in mind during the build because it has to be lifted over lots of fences, or be shouldered across bogs and unrideable terrain.

    Obviously it's singlespeed - running 42/19.

    Frame is an On-One Scandal 29er (Scandium version). It's about 12 years old, so it's old style steep head angle. I have steepened it further by using a shorter fork which has the benefit of giving another 3mm of trail.

    Main components are Middleburn cranks, Crank Bros ISIS BB (I love those ), BB7 brakes, SDG I-Beam saddle and post. Handlebars are the new On-One Brian which seem ideal for this use.

    Wheels are homebuilt, Hope hubs, Easton Arc 40 rims, and 50mm Stans Crow tyres. The rim technically is too large for a 50mm tyre, but I had a theory that the increase in volume given would counter any possible disadvantage, eg normally there's the loss of engagement of side lugs when you put a tyre on a rim that's too wide, but this tyre has minimal tread. It works well with the tyre run at 22-25psi on tubes, and I won't be changing to narrower rims although I have them.

    As it stands the only change I am likely to make is the brakes. Nothing wrong with them, but the rear BB7 limits the chain adjustment because the brake arm touches the seatstay at rest, so it will be replaced with TRP Spyres.

    Bianchi Gravel bike

    My Bianchi Orso 105. My first bike and so far I really enjoy it. Only had it for a few months now and its fun to ride pavement/dirt roads/trails on. After 40 years of running and then wrecking my knee, this has been 'therapeutic' in many ways.Post Your Gravel Bike Pictures-bike.jpg

    Yeah, the SES 4.5 is a versatile wheelset.

    Sometimes it's running smooth 28s, usually file tread 32s, and sometimes knobby 40s.

    Testing the 650b wheels with Specialized Sawtooth 45mm tyres.
    3:40hr, 1,400m of climbing, avg speed 18.9kph, max speed 70.7kph.

    They work ok

    You get some stares from other bikers when you pass them doing 40kph on the tri-bars in the gravel...

    The bike went well, the brakes worked as per spec, the gears works flawlessly. The Tanpan is not an issue.
    Gearing, well the 4km run in to the final stage finish averaged 40kph and maxed out at 119rpm...
    36/11 top gear
    The tyres, for 75% of the race they were sweet. For the other 25%, wet clay, mud, downhill wet clay, as dodgy as all fcuk!
    That's the hardest I've ever ridden for a day.
    Still got covered in mud and sheep shit even with the guards...

    Thanks.

    It is a UK brand, Ribble. The frame is Reynolds 725 with a carbon fork. Lots of build options, but I went with 1x11 Sram and 650b road plus wheels as I reay wanted to give WTB Byways a go.

    got my Cutthroat on Monday. Changed the tires to some 2.35Ē Maxxis Ikon, put an SDG ti railed saddle and new bar tape, and the Salsa EXP top tube bag. Ready to get out and ride some gravel/singletrack. Hopefully the rain will stop and the dirt will dry out soon. Oh well itís been great for my commute the last three days
    Enjoy the ride...

    Love those Cutthroats! I want one but not actually for its intended purpose... I want it for riding to and on local single track, we have miles of trail in a park located just 14 miles away , its a bit mellow for my full suspension mountain bike and a bit much for my 18.5 pound gravel bike with 38c tires. With the Salsa I could ride to the park and ride some trails and home.

    big tires, higher stack, really light vs my mountain bike.... I have a bad case of the wants

    I was so close to pulling the trigger on a Cutthroat. They're just so cool. But I got fixated on titanium, and ended up building this. I based the fit on the Cutthroat, and while I've got a few mechanical tweaks to make yet, it eats up gravel like nobody's business. Fun on rocky singletrack too, if a bit terrifying (I'm very new at that).

    Thanks! I like it too! The downside to building it up out of a MTB frame (other than fit complications) is that there's little room inside to put stuff. I envy Cutthroat owners that.

    Looked much better as it was ... have you got any of that other bar tape left and I'm guessing you've still got the saddle????

    Yeah I cleared it but it ainít as fast as my trail bike haha. I ride on a lot of trails with this bike, fun but a bit challenging. But I need new tires with some more grip

    For the past couple seasons Iíve been riding an ďoldĒ (2012) steel hardtail with drop bars as a gravel bike. My buddy recently sold me his barely used titanium Seven Mudhoney frame and Enve fork for short money. Wow, what a difference.





    I swapped all my old parts over so itís a work in progress. A frame like this deserves a proper build. This will get the GRX group set once it hits the market.

    In the meantime, Iím digging the effortless speed and compliance of the titanium/carbon combo.

    Got out around Linville and Wilson Creek Gorges for a night on my 2017 Raleigh RXM. There are a few things I'd change given the choice but overall this bike gets it done for me

    Yep, another Bike island build here. This Ti cross bike came without a fork, so added one and changed the tires so far. Looking to tear it down and upgrade with new GRX parts end of year!

    Sweet bike. I hope to do a GRX upgrade next year. Frame isn't as fancy as yours but I like the fit and it be a good bikepacking bike with all the bosses

    HA! Yep, that was odd but cool. We were just out for a quick gravel canal ride through farms an the occasional neighborhood when all of a sudden, this little league stadium came out of nowhere. It was pretty cool to see and the fields were in excellent condition with some ground crews actually working. So I felt I had to take a pic.

    The MTB trails are a muddy mess in central IL right now so I decided to head out for a ride on my Willard. I live by a river that is currently at or above flood stage right now so I decided to check out the roads and bridges around it.

    Obligatory bike shot:

    A little farther south, between Galesburg and Peoria. A lot of the township roads are still gravel around me and you get a bit of elevation change from the river bottom to the higher ground so it's not all lazy flat roads the pics make it out to be!

    Dirty Kanzaa

    I thought I'd give a real world post of life in the DK100.

    This is the 3rd flat, after getting a new tire at the midpoint. This was the last tube I had. I had to switch to tubes, the flint just slices tires like a razor blade.

    I used all my tire plugs, needed about a dozen total, in big and small. Would also carry 3-4 tubes next time. I used about 6 CO2, I'd carry 8-10 and have spare everything at midpoint.

    If I do it again, I'm going to make my own awl, to poke a hole in the cut and prep it for the plugs.

    Tires were Thunder burt 27.5 x 2.1, Snakeskin 54-584, tubeless, Evo, TLE.

    Good feedback!

    Which DT wheels are these? How much inner width are they?
    And which bags are these?

    Wheels are DT Swiss XR1501.

    Bags are JPaks LLC, he's in Aurora, CO. I believe it's about $460 for 4 bags, sized to the bike, and bottles. Joe Tonsager is the owner/operator, probably 3-4 months out to make. He made the custom colors to match, and you don't notice them at all when riding.

    He kept a template of my frame, he does on every bike he works, mines an OPEN Large

    That's a great looking set up. Lefties are excellent drop bar suspension forks -maybe the best IMO.

    It was a great ride!! Can't wait to get back out there!

    She also does great on the road, got a second wheelset so she can pull double duty. Gives up a touch of speed to my road bike, but not much, and it's more comfortable!

    Since I've really taken to gravel riding, I decided to upgrade my old 2007 Jabber to a Soma Wolverine. I have 50 miles on her this weekend and so far I did it.

    Another nice ride on the newly acquired Soma. I'm really digging this bike. Although, I've decided to swap bars so now I'm researching.

    Well, the 1 1/8 straight steerer Toseek forks can take a beating.
    Ripped apart by a car bumper (probably the edge of the number plate) and still got me home.

    It sort of can, if you want it to. Gravel bikes aren't a very clearly-defined category, and mass-production examples range from things that could be described as road bikes with super-wide tires to mountain bikes with drop bars. Ultimately bike categories are mostly a matter of intent anyway.

    Here's my gravel bike:



    It's a mountain bike with drop bars, but people are usually surprised when I tell them that it's a Stumpjumper.

    Ahh dang it! I should have stopped this last night.

    Chaz is right, and if you look at the beginning of the thread, this was brought up, and dealt with.

    Post pictures of your gravel bike, any bike you enjoy riding on gravel. 160mm with drop bars? Who cares as long as the rider is having fun. There is already a thread to discuss this bs!.

    Can a mod clean the BS posts please?

    Take semantics elsewhere, this is a bike porn thread. Adults only.

    Got their details. Fork, helmet, slightly out of true wheels and just a few other scratches. Only doing 25kph so not so bad.
    The Giro Air Attack helmet took a hell of a bang on the road.
    As my head hit, there was a well cushioned THUMP and I was thinking "good helmet".

    Whoa! Glad to hear you're ok. This is one scary possiblity that has made me all but retire my beloved classic roadie and why I've been sticking to gravel canals.

    Hopefully they'll replace everything. Stay safe out there on the road everyone.

    Sweet build. I also have a wheelset with road tires when I'm just going riding on pavement. Seems just as fast as my Emonda was.

    How's the handling/clearance with the 27.5x2.1?

    Built up this little rig for the lady. Pretty fun bike for the cost, I find myself using it just as much as my other gravel bike

    I changed the tires for some Continental Race King Protect 27,5x2.2" clearence with the wheel pulled back almost all the way on the dropout is good enough for me, it'll clear the 2.2 with the wheel slammed forward but it's quite close. As for the handling it handles well I can ride a lot faster on the local rocky stuff without worrying about banging the rims. I banged the 700c rims quite a bit and pinched a 700x40 Rambler setup tubeless.

    Post Your Gravel Bike Pictures

    I might have posted earlier but cannot find it. This is my gravel/road bike. Currently has 700C wheels setup tubeless. 35mm Hutchinson Piranha on Stanís Crest rims. Photo has Pacenti 650b tires. Currently has SRAM Force which I am regretting as the lever makes such a racket when I change gears.

    Price doesn't matter, I'm taking my $225 (well, plus a few parts ) bike out this morning.

    Thanks! It really is a fun bike. I've managed to put over 500 miles on it in the month I've had it. Hopefully I'll take it to Dirty Kanza next year.

    Never thought gravel bike can be so much fun, very much enjoying. Did a 85km ride to a place well known for whale watching, found a gravel track to unleash the bike on the way back.

    Twin 6 Standard Ti Rando Gravel 53cm

    Hereís my T6, custom built with lots of bling. Iíve been riding a mix of bike path to the beach and dirt road short cuts.
    Unfortunately the frame is too big and even a 51cm would still be to big. So Iím parting out and selling what I donít use on my new gravel frame.

    Just got my spare wheel and tire set put together and mounted. Sucks the disc brakes will need adjusting each time but it works. This frame could have likely fit 650x2.1 these are 650x47

    I just finished this up on Friday. Loving it so far, very comfortable. It's a Ridley X-Trail carbon with Ultegra shifters/brakes, and RD. Rolling on Panaracer gravel king sk's 700x38's on Stans grail rims, tubeless. Praxis Works Zyante 40t crank with M8000 XT 11/40 cassette. The Selle Anatomica saddle is in my opinion the most comfortable bike saddle I've ever owned. The bars aren't taped yet, tweaking the position of the shifters, I think I'm happy with where they are at. I really like the Oveja Negra 1/2 frame bag I put on

    Nice shot. Is that near spray on the seat post?

    I'll be in La Jolla over Labor day for my daughter's soccer tournament. Hoping there's enough time to sneak in a short ride.

    This is about five years old now. It was built by a local framebuilder (John Caletti).

    Not aware of what happened. I was under the impression that it was a sister company of Transition. They seemed like nice bikes. I got this last year on a pretty steep discount NOS product. Had a few crappy parts but the frame is a great platform for what I wanted. Needs another set of bottle cage mounts on the seat tube though.

    Fuji jari 1.5, custom powder coated, on some 650 arc27 wheels with 1.9 gravel kings. Since the rims are pull offs from my old broson, the tires are pretty wide and just barely fit in the frame.
