    Amazing post from a man who's ridden a 1000km (?!) audax through Belgium!

  • Amazing repost

  • My house backs on to excellent gravel

  • There's such a huge shortage of Nitto parts in the U.S. right now that I was going to have to order stuff from about ten different places, if they even had stock. So, rather than doing that, it was cheaper/more efficient to just order everything I needed from Blue Lug. Shipping was $150, but no sales tax and they actually had the stuff I wanted. And everything was cheaper or significantly cheaper than buying it in the U.S. And it'll be here quicker than any U.S. retailer would ship stuff lol:

  • I don't even need to look to know who that is :-D

  • I've never been to a campsite, maybe done 200 nights wild camping tho

  • that is lovely

  • "...but when building a dedicated rig, I want all the key requirements to be met without aftermarket solutions,..."

  • @platypus didn't tell me he was getting a new bike

  • Might buy a Grevil and get rid of four other bikes. In a few years convert it to flatbar grandad bike

  • I'm not a gravel race hater, I did the national champs last year

  • I am a subscriber to the Lee Likes Bikes /Ride Logic school of thought re mtb fit.

  • The Talbot is basically my flat bar gravel hybrid now

  • ^ meta

  • Wattage frottage, rubbing against the stays...

  • For this tour I've removed the fenders.

  • i've done the lakemont descent 75 times and am listed as second overall on strava

  • I've managed to rinse two sets of praxis alba chainrings in 11,000km

  • Gravel bikes are just xc mountain bikes

  • I feel like he's fishing now

    I ride mellow singletrack and smile whilst wearing ancient worn-out clothes and wild camping wherever I want

  • I just only ride 650b now

  • Ahhh but I’m old and Live the plush life now, 35c at a minimum
