    Trust me, I'm well aware of what a true gravel/adventure bike should be. IMO, unless it's being marketed as a competition-only rig, it better accommodate racks and fenders w/o the use of duct tape,...

    +1 on the Prestaratchet. I carry one on my fender-equipped bike (with 8mm and 10mm sockets), and it works really well.

    I rode triples almost exclusively for many years. When compact cranksets were introduced, I was skeptical that they would work for my applications (commuting, mixed-terrain riding). To my surprise, I...

    I have SRAM 1x11 (42t x 10-42t) on my gravel/commuter bike, and it works really well.

    Same here. I'm fortunate that I have secure/indoor bike storage at work, so I have no qualms about commuting on one of my nicer bikes.

    Shimano 10s road shifters are compatible with the company's 9s MTB derailleurs (as well as the 10s road derailleurs). Because of difference in cable-pull requirements, you can't mix the 10s road...

    Shimano's long-cage road mechs are usually good up to 32t. I was referring to 34t and even 36t cogs. There are, of course, exceptions such as this:

    Many flat-bar bikes are equipped with larger cogs, and MTB derailleurs are compatible with larger cogs. MTB derailleurs--especially the clutch type--are also better at reducing chain-slap.

    What you're saying makes complete sense. With the nose down, the rear of the saddle is higher, increasing the overall effective saddle height. When the nose comes up, the rear portion comes down,...

    Lots of riders have their saddle too high and too far forward. The latter is often done in an attempt to correct the falling-into-the-bars feeling. Problem is, you need to move your saddle back/down...

    If I can't easily ride a bike no-handed, then I know that my saddle is either too high, too far forward, or angled down too much.

    Excellent advice.

    I weigh 195#, and run my 700x32 tires at 60psi/70psi (front/rear). That setup works well on pavement or hardpack dirt roads. If need be, I'll drop the pressure 5-7psi for rougher...
