Cyclocross and Gravelbiking (Recreational) This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbround Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

I'm fully aware of why driveshafts are more likely to be made from a high-strength composite than bumpers. I was not entirely sure of the point you were making with that particular sentence, so I was just covering the base by clarifying terms.

Full GRX800 and the dropper post is properly installed with the left GRX shifter.

The bike is just uber cool and i guess better than what most here have. If i had the $$$ i would buy one. Reviews suggest being FS makes one a better rider...thus each and every other mode of transportation has.....wait for it......suspension.

A drool worthy machine for sure! Niner lists a $4700 build with grx400 2x so I think that's very competitive for what this is. I will be anxious to see if/when someone races this.

I've said before I'd love this machine because of the full suspension and the effort to reduce "low amplitude high frequency vibrations". There's lots of grass paths that I've ridden in my hardtail mtb with 55c tires and low pressure that-are-punishing!! Frost heaved untrodden surfaces and washboard are tough to handle for long durations on a rigid setup.
