Thoughts:

This is the first year I have ridden any sort of road or gravel. It’s not something I am used to and not something I ever thought I would do. However, it is an incredible training tool for mountain biking and now that I have it I’m very excited to do more and explore the possibilities. I wanted to build a gravel bike that was bomb proof and I could take just about anywhere if I got too bored of the road and saw a fun singletrack take off. That's one of the great things about this bike, you can tell that it was designed by mountain bikers to have fun where the pavement ends. I have already done things on this bike that really shouldn’t be done on a gravel bike which honestly makes it that much more fun. I am excited to try it out more and then share with you guys just how capable this bike really is. Keep your eye out for some great content.
