    Cool bike. How do you like the retroshift shifters? They look good.

    I have two vintage bikes that I pressed into gravel grinding duty. My fav is a 93 XO-2. I really like the combination of road geometry with 26 inch wheels. The other is a 91 specialized team stumpjumper that I put a trekking bar on. The trekking bar is pretty cool. I'm currently running 26 x 1.5 inch tires on the stumpy but I'm thinking of going to 2.1 tires for the really gnarly stuff:

    My 2012 Ridley X-Bow. Stock still running the OEM Vittoria tyres.


    This was on a cold, wet and windy weekend. Finally got a break in the weather and set off to do a road ride. It was too windy still and the cars were throwing up spray everywhere. The solution... Duck off into the nature reserves. That's why I love my CX



    At the end of a not overly technical track but wet and muddy. You'd never get a true road bike here)

    Actually that's a new one called The Bosco Bar. Google it, it's interesting.

    I've ridden the bike on road rides with 700x25 Contis and it fared very well. I think the 853 has a great deal to do with it. Also love the steel fork.
    Be sure to post a pic of your Presidio when you get it built up!

    Very nice Moots ! Super fun on hardpack gravel with those tires, probably quite a challenge if the gravelroad gets a bit rougher.

    Yeah, it's not setup for gravel in that picture. I have another wheelset with some Specialized cross tires.
