I really liked my gravel bike off-road
Or at least that’s what I told myself
Then I bought a modern (long and slack 29er hardtail, a Specialized epic carbon)
Oh my Lord I was so wrong.

That said, my next bike in a few weeks time will be the new specialized diverge GRX Di2. :lol:

I thought that photo had been buried in a hermetically-sealed vault with a 100-year timelock..... <shudder> :grin: .

Big review of the Allied Able on Cycling Tips. I'm sure some will have issues with the aesthetics...

Chuff me that's one hell of a cassette (possibly an optical illusion with the deeper section rims). Though strangely I find it kinda funky.

Would have to go way wider, flared and higher on the bars for me though. Position looks way too "roadie" for me.

I like the idea of moving the chainstays, it takes advantage of the carbon construction being able to cope with different construction methods.
I'd have like to have seen bigger tyres to maximise the benefits though. Otherwise, quite like it.

I quite like it. Can't get used to seeing bikes without a seatstay bridge though.

While we're on the subject, I wouldn't say no to a Moots Routt YBB. Although I'd stick some tie-dye Cane Creek eeWings on it...

A new Routt YBB with clearance for 700x50c wheels and tyres... 🤤
