I'm new to this forum and was a little surprised to not find a dedicated category for gravel riding. This version of cycling is getting WAY BIG up here in Minnesota, and I know it's growing elsewhere, too. Gravel races/rides like the Almanzo 100 ( see http://almanzo.com -- well over 1000 riders signed up for the 2013 edition!) are popping up everywhere around here, and some mega-distance rides like the Dirty Kanza and Trans-Iowa are out there for folks who really want to test themselves with 200-300 miles of gravel non-stop.
So, I figured since many gravel types are riding cross bikes, I thought I'd ask the question here: Are there any gravel grinders out there???
