    If I understand correctly, and the Rohloff shifter does indeed work with your hub, then there is at least one clean solution: Gilles Berthoud Twister for Rohloff Hubs - 104.99

    Very, very nice: about as close to a high-end Euro-style 'cross bike'* as we can get here in North America. Pics and full ride report asap!

    *'cross' as in 'cross terrain', not as in 'cyclocross'.

    All of this begs the pressing question: OP, why do you want to grind your gravel? Couldn't you just buy a finer grade?

    Well, yes ... for example, I have 32s on my Sirrus, but it is not a 2013 or 2014 full carbon one like yours. As I said, yours has a Specialized Roubaix frame ... that is an 'endurance' road frame...

    You just need a bicycle floor pump -- that's it! Any LBS or sporting goods store carrying bikes should have 'em. Make sure you get one convertible to both Presta and Schraeder valves.

    Sounds about right to me. FWIW, I'm a relatively skinny little (5'9, 160lbs) old man; I set 32s at 75 front/67 rear (typically, 10% lower on front). 28s slightly higher (not much). I too base this...
