Here's some pics from a ~70 mile route in Northwest Illinois (Driftless Area) to make up for the lack of gravel in this thread. If any ST'ers in the IA/IL/WI area want to ride it Saturday, November 4th, hop on over to https://www.strava.com/...group_events/227176.
p.s. - the Surly at the bottom has multiple Trans Iowa finishes. That's a gravel bike!
Those are 700s. I've been thinking about trying some 650s and WTB Horizons on it but haven't been motivated enough to spend the $$$.
Absolutely! Besides the Ti bike I posted a pic of, I have an old Lemond Poprad. It is a bit of a tank, but even at 40+ mph on gravel it is rock solid and predictable.
Hey! Me too!
I *heart* my X-Trail, I've been crushing the carriage roads and some light singletrack in the area, plus winter road riding, and occasional commuting.
I put in latex tubes, and then shot some Orange Seal Endurance in them, loving that setup.
Eventually I'll go full tubeless, but this is working well for me for the moment.
float , hammer , and jog
I just got a set of Shimano that are tubeless for the road bike and would like to do same for X Trail at some point as well.....
The X Trail ride is a significantly better ride than I was expecting - really well designed frame and the integrated fenders are killer in the wet I live in....
