    I think you got a decent deal. I've never seen an Outlaw in red.

    You Jamis was new, whereas the rear brake location shows the Outlaw to be a couple of years old. Even so, I'd take used Tiagra...

    Sure there is. Narrower spacing between gears means tighter tolerances. An 8-speed system can have more slop in the tuning and still find its way to the right gear.

    Following on what Bikedud said, the gravel bike really is in many ways a rediscovery of the old "sport touring" style of bike. On the other hand, I think there's more to it than that. I wasn't up...

    Popular options are Velocity A23, HED Belgium 2 and H Plus Son Archetype. All of these are around 150 grams lighter than the A719.

    I've got wheels with the A23's and the Belgium 2's. I like them...

    I wouldn't say it will prevent rust, but if you take reasonable care of it you shouldn't have a problem. As anecdotal evidence, I refer you to the chrome handlebars in this box of parts:

    Small Block 8 ought to be pretty good for gravel grinding. I'm using Clement LAS right now. I'm pretty happy with them so far, but I worry that the knobs might wear away quickly on hard surfaces.

    I like the idea of 44/34 gearing on a crankset. I generally dislike compact doubles because the jump from 34 to 50 is too big to be a transition I'd want to make often and going from a stop to...

    They are brass. What I was suggesting is that maybe Crank Brothers went too far in choosing brass. There must be something softer than steel but significantly harder than brass.

    After two winters new cables wouldn't be a bad idea. Unless I've missed something about your bike full length housing isn't possible, but you might be able to run some kind of liner from the cable...

    That's true, but that's actually what you want. Better to replace the cleats than the pedals. Of course, brass may be taking things too far.
