As the heading says I was inspired by the "Show your Gravel Grinders" thread to build myself a gravel grinder. Actually I already have a couple of bikes that could be considered gravel grinders and truth be told, I'm getting some bikes ready for a swap meet in a couple of weeks and I did'nt want that inspiration to go to waste.
Bike was built entirely from stuff I had on hand and I wanted a to use a frame that I would'nt worry about getting chipped up from flying rocks. So I used an '89 Schwinn World that was hanging around with a Shimano Light Action RD and some Shimano barend shifters I wanted to try out. We're supposed to get some nice weather this weekend so hopefully I can get out for a trial run.
