After trying to use the Steamroller for some bikepacking my knees have gone on strike and demanded I get a geared bike for the rough stuff.
So I am looking for a gravel bike, either complete or frame and forks if there is anything out there.
Ideally 650b with fat 40mm plus tyres
Gears (I mentioned those right)
My preference would be a Surly Straggler so I have a matching pair. I also like the Temple Adventure Disc, looking into options for both of these potentially from new. I actaully have a Straggler fork I bought for the Steamroller but never fitted so if there is a lonely Straggler frame out there let me know.
Quick Q about the Straggler: the sizes for 700c run up to 62cm, but the 650b goes to 52cm, not sure how that computes? I have 650bs on my Steamroller which was originally 700c and 60cm size.
Thanks for looking
