    We need far more info about the two other than brand and price to give you any info on which is 'better'.

    ...will be my same Lapierre with Mavic R-SYS wheels, or a custom Seven Ti frame with classic geometry. (73 degrees, horizontal TT, touch longer WB)

    Your Mr Pink is probably 'snappier' than the Aloominator. Same wheelbase & chainstays within mm, but different angles & rakes pointing the Pinky faster. Can't tell anything on positioning though with...

    I find the new gravel bike design is really a 'racey' hybrid. Look at where it's meant to go? And what are many hybrids ideal on?

    (I also think gravel bikes are enduro versions of cyclocross.)

    Sometimes thieves lock bikes so they can come back with what they need to break the lock that isn't theirs. (And guarantee it'll be there)

    Best 'overall' is a tough one to answer. But I'd have to say it's a tie between the Fuji Altamira and Lapierre Xelius EFi. Altamira was a touch better at comfort, but the Xelius is a more confident...

    Agreed, low-end 'real' components are just fine these days. But they don't last as long as higher end parts. True, a wider chain. But false, a shifter & derailleur. That's why 105 and Tiagra are such...

    I really like GT's return to the real market, and they're doing a great job with what they're doing: Off road, but the off road 90% of us bike with the budget we can afford.

    They definitely are trying to cater to cyclist instead of spanxed racers. They have a new trademarked quote "Why More Fun".

    Thanks. I'm glad to see there's an internal gearing hub for that spacing too! I'll be getting an RXS latter this month, and was wondering if there was any bad opinions on the belt setup.

    True. I have to deal with those flies here in Maine too. But I use them as a motivation to go faster, along with the beer at the end of the ride. Sort of like a pleasure ahead, and a pain behind! ;)

    I'd go with the "go faster" approach, but when impossible to lose them in a sprint, there are natural bug sprays that work like deet.

    Belt Drive Experiences

    I was wondering if anyone has any experiences with the new belt instead of chain bikes? I ask here because it seems the ideal place to use such. Dealing with grit & grime, but you don't need the gear...

    Believe it or not, they're not doing phenomenally. They're not growing on volume, and QBP still has to get rid of frames at the end of each year through sales on wholesale prices for the realtors....

    Why thank you! :) But I'll put some of the credit on my Lapierre. I have noticed an increase in my statistics since riding her. (Could just be I like to ride it more than my last one)

    Stocked up on FinishLine Dry, because I got tired of having to clean and reapply ceramic lube on my Lapierre so often.
