Yoga + Mobility


Yesterday, Chris asked me what gravel bikes I was looking at.  I really don't know

  • Tire size: It needs to be able to handle some of the wider tires out there. 40+ for sure. I also have given some thought to getting 650 wheels for gravel leaving open the possibility of getting 700s for the small road tires (the gravel tires are big enough that the wheel circumference would be similar (small wheel+big tire (47mm) = big wheel+small tire (28mm)).  But maybe I'm overthinking this.
  • Plenty of gears for getting up the steep stuff
  • Disc brakes -- of course!
  • Mounts - Even though I use a hydration pack, I'd like mounts in case I need them down the road. This is more of a want than a deal breaker
  • I'd also like a bike without a lot of proprietary stuff.
  • It has to be good looking. I'm not spending money on a new bike that I think is ugly.  Yes, I'm that shallow!
  • I'm not even sure what the best materials that bike should be made of.  Alloy? Carbon? Steel? Titanium?  No idea.
  • 1x or 2x drive train?

I like the look of the Obed Boundary, 3T Exploro, Salsa Warbird, Niner RLT... Oh, the Ventum GS1 as well but that is direct to consumer so no test rides.  But 30% discount from EN so... But probably sometjhing that I can see/ride/touch before buying. Apparently, I need to save my pennies!


Zoe wanted to share this video about Major Biden and how he was adopted.
