... but which one is which?
2014 Norco Revolver and 1995 KHS Montana. Different uses these days, both kick-ass rides!
Faced a similar question recently... what MTB after many years of road cycling? My last MTB was a rigid steel KHS that I bought new in 1995. I ended up with a Norco Revolver 7.1. A bit over your...
Former Toupe user here. I now use the Phenom Expert 155 for all my rides, even 100+ miles.
Where should I look for a sweet 27.5" steel hard tail? Looking for a complete bike under $4k, ideally with SRAM X01 type drivetrain. Is this possible? Nothing boutique or custom made. Nothing too...
Just adding that all the models that I have tried have been "Expert" models.
I have used the Toupe, Toupe RBX, Phenom, Avatar, and Romin. All 143mm with the exection of the Phenom (155mm). I currently have the Phenom on my pavement bike and the Avatar on my gravel bike. ...
It's a Mavic rim. Will try both tricks and see what gives. Thanks!
622x19 rims and Conti Touring Plus 700x28 tires - fail! Pinched two inner tubes with the lever trying to put them on.
In theory 622x19 rims should take 700x28 tires. Maybe the Touring Plus tires...
Great info here. Thanks!
Thanks for the recommendations. I think I will try either the Contis or the Panaracers. Cheers!
Looking for a 700x28 tire able to handle paved and gravel roads. Maybe 50/50 split between pavement and gravel. The gravel tends to be well packed with short sandy portions. Trying to keep the...
When riding in friendly groups, fenders are a must! Solo riding or racing are different. During friendly rides, when wet and muddy, I don't want to be behind a rider without fenders.

Has the geo for the Straggler been posted? Really curious about this model.
Interesting. This is something I can feel while riding. Certainly between 60 and 70, but maybe I won't be able to feel the difference between 68 and 70.
... but where did you find this thread?
Looks great! Likely won't be a hit with the proper CX crowd... cable routing under the top tube?
Post #10 has the updated list.
As BluesDawg said, this is "the developing subcategory of gravel grinder bikes which combine manyfeatures of cyclocross bikes with lower bottom brackets and room for widertires but without the heft...
Would love to see a list with more alternatives, maybe BB drops of 68mm and over. All-city, Habanero, Raleigh, Salsa, what else?
This is exactly what I'm talking about, particularly the Tamland! Anything else out there similar to the Tamland that might be available now?
Hey, I'm trying to calculate the BB drop given some geo measures. I found this spreadsheet on Sheldon Brown's site.
Any idea what the inputs would be given 700x23c tires, 172.5 cranks, and the...
Habanero Cross frame with BB drop of 78. Any experience with these frames?
I'm looking for a cyclocross bike with low (road/touring) bottom bracket drop. The idea is to have a solid, flexible pavement/gravel bike with a low center of gravity.
Most of the cyclocross...
