    If you don't limit yourself to just rim brakes, there are a whole lot of bikes you might want to add to your list.

    Built this one up last winter. Not the most modern of steel frames (mid-90's), but it does have 130mm rear spacing, threadless fork/stem, etc....

    I've found the adjustable range of mini-v's to be really narrow. Minute adjustments of the cable length will make huge changes at the lever, and the brakes will sit really close to the rim when set...

    Given your weight and the size of the tires, I'd say you could easily drop the pressure quite a bit. A tire that large is going to feel sluggish on road one way or the other, at least compared to a...

    I don't think you'll have any issues with the rear shifting. I currently have an 8 speed XT RD with an 11-36 cassette and 10 speed shifters (not bar end though, but still) and everything works...

    If I were building a strictly gravel bike around a 1x set up, I'd probably go with a 38 or 40 and the widest range cassette available. Since both your cranks can work with a 38, you might as well...

    I think this set up would give you a lot of unnecessarily low gears for CX racing. I'm using a 42/11-36 and I'm not all that fast, nor do I use the two lowest gears very often in a race.

    If it makes the riding more fun/enjoyable, then it's totally worth it. You would probably want a new derailleur to be safe, all though the short cage one might work. Don't forget a new chain either...

    That's a sweet looking frame. Would probably build up nice with some modern components. I wouldn't worry about the fork, from what I remember (did a bunch of research on 1" threadless carbon forks...

    This makes a lot sense. Here's a pic from after Sunday's PIR race a couple weeks back.

    In the same vein as the Challenge Strada Bianca, Clement has the Strada LGG. Currently they're available up to a 28, but the interwebs says a 32 is coming along sometime soon.

    So... I got curious and moved the spacers around on my brake pads last night. While it did create a noticeable gap, it also made it so that my brakes no longer engaged the rim. I had to push the...

    I did some sleuthing with my own bike, and the pad to rim clearance is quite minimal. I couldn't measure it with what I have on hand, but I would say the distance is a couple millimeters.

    Gravel marketed tires are typically going to be wider and have more pronounced tread than something like a Kenda Kwest. Depending on where and how you ride, this may or may not matter so much. ...
