Cyclocross Frames, Wheels & Components / Re: New Gravel Bike

Nice new bike.  Gravel will be my next bike, but easily a year out and actually thinking of building a lugged steal frame next year.

Thanks for the info.  I would like to run a 35mm stem on a medium but like its been said- its a lot easier to run a slightly longer stem than try to shorten your top tube!

Ill also say that I feel the bikes are true to size.  With that said, Im 5'11" tall (a bit taller in the torso area 31" inseam) and am on a medium frame.  Its very comfortable without feeling like Im stretched WAY out.  I would like to try a large size but feel that it may feel a bit long in the reach department.

But with that said, you look at some others and see guys at my height or an inch shorter and they are riding size large frames.  So who knows.

I can say with 100% certainty a P8 with a 29er setup in a size large would be very uncomfortable for me in the stand over department.  Im aware people dont like to use that number as a reference, but when my boys sit on the top tube on a size medium...  a large would likely make them feel quite uncomfortable.

Definitely a nice looking plus bike apctjb, you should try out some 3.0 29+ tires (Chupacabras), it will make the bike feel like it can roll over anything.

hey guys, thanks for all the answers

just some feedback: I'm stupid as can be...I didn't fully close the chain lock when test assembling my bike, so thats why the chain jumped off..I have now fitted the xx1 eagle with the 38t chain ring with the help of a large spacer...the chain line still is pretty fucked up, but I think it will work out..couldn't really try the finished bike yet because of -10 °C outside...I'll keep you posted if anyone's interested

Sweet bike! I'm just a bit jealous.

I demo'd one last fall for the first time and it was a lot more fun and trail capable than I expected. It was the OTSO Warakin which is a stainless steel frame. A gravel bike is on my list but I'm not sure when I'll be able to bring one home. I try to keep it to one bike a year and I just built my daughter a new bike. I did happen to slip in some new wheels for my trail bike too so I need to replenish the bike funds first.

Hello.  I am brand new to the group
 
Can you recommend hardtails that work with the SRAM GX Eagle 12 speed with a 38T front ring?

Will the CS-057 and OHR930C rims work?

Thank you. John
