    All,
    With so many riding Gravel Bikes it just seems like the right thing to do to provide a Forum home for them. Knowing so many folks that ride Gravel Bikes, they need a home too! :thumbsup:

    I built a poor man's gravel bike a few months ago...

    It has 3 miles on it. Well, 2.5 actually, but I rounded up. :p

    My plan is to do some combo rides from the house to get the fitness even higher. A good one would be home to Black Star to home. OR maybe even tack on Skyline... The brakes are the weak link, but I'll stick to the easier fire roads with it.

    I do?:confused:

    Actually I probably would ride it if I had someone to share in the suffering.

    My wife doesn’t like it and thinks I should sell it (and a couple other bikes) and build a new V4 Ripley. Who am I to argue?

    If you weren't in South Canada I'd ride my gravel bike with you....As it is kinda hard to get up there since Los Angeles is in the way. :gag:

    That’s a thread. This is a Forum.
    It’s okay herz, it’s not an eBike thing...

    Thanks for the addition, @Mikie :thumbsup:

    I love grinding gravel, but I just use a mountain bike. Whatever flavor you pedal is alright with me. :geek:

    For sure. That Juliana color is super classy looking.
    I'm going with the green, but I don't LOVE it. I like the yellow, but it seems yellow does not hold up well on bikes. My .02.

    Gravel bikes are good for when you live in the MidWest.

    Any place with hills... go ride the hills!
