Moving to Honolulu. I’ll be 1.5 miles to the beach so I’ll be able to surf every morn, but definitely planning on a month or two a year in the summer in the Tetons or something.
There’s some riding on the big island but yeah all the trails on Oahu are hiking only and crowded as fuck
If you zoom in on that second photo you can see Vegas.
Found this old Ritchey tool I had as a kid when going through some old boxes recently. Promptly put it on ebay, ha!
Thanks for the offer on the bars. It looks like we are selling soon so I’m probably going to pull the trigger on a specialized diverge when we get into the new house.
I’ll be sad to be further away from single track but I’m hoping a new bike and a some long road/gravel rides will make up for it!
My buddy has a Diverge. He can’t barely ride a bike. He called me to walk him through changing a flat and he somehow stripped the thru axle in the process.
It was nice when I rode it.
Looks like a good all-rounder. I’m hoping I can find one local so I can give it a test spin.
Just riding in circles all day…
Now I need a new tire. Might have to take the road bike out to keep up my streak if they don’t have big ass tires in stock.
Just got back from sugar mtn. Steep and rocky
Quick hill ride this morning before the heat (100+ today) kicked in. Wasn’t sure how road gearing would be on longer hills so had to try it.
You guys running 1x or 2x on your gravel bikes?
I run 1x on everything.
If you need a specific cadence and bigger gear range, 2x is good. But for most people 1x is plenty good.
I run a single (38T) on my mountain bike, its pretty flat here so it works great for me.
1x on all my bikes except my road bike just because it came with a 2x setup.
1x or die
Try living in a mountainous area and see how well your fixed gear works out
I ride single speed (not fixed) in a pretty hilly area and it works out just fine.
Fixed is a different animal altogether.
