    Show us your Gravel Grinders

    For the last couple of months, I have been riding more and more gravel, and have built up a couple of bikes (both CX and MTB) to handle it. After all, any excuse will do.

    I will post mine later after photos. But I'd be very interested to see what you have come up with for Gravel Grinders. I'll also post this on the CX.

    Thanks

    The term Gravel Grinder is new to me. I had to google it and bugger me...maybe my hybrid is a gravel grinder. What's the definition of a gravel grinder? Wiki came up with nothing.

    A lot of my riding to link up decent singletrack is on gravel. So all of my bikes can be considered "gravel grinders" but if I were to pick one in my garage it'd be my Salsa El Mariachi. Sorry no pics... Been thinking about picking up a drop bar cross bike to tool around on.
