I have two purple 2018 Fargo frame-sets. One Med. for Wife, One Large for me. Both frames are being built up this winter. We would like to do a fun gravel event in Hermann MO. next spring.

Tour of Hermann Gravel Event

Any problems running a 700c x 40 tires... or will this cause BB bracket to be too low. Plan is to run 175mm cranks on both bikes?

I was planning on build these up with shimano slx/xt boost hubs (rear only) depending on sale prices, and use DT swiss spokes with brass nipples. I am looking for a bang for buck rim recommendation. What about DT SWISS 533D 622 x 22mm. . . or should i like for something wider. would like to run a 2.2 to 2.5 mtb tire for other riding.


Thanks for your reply!
