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 : "Unbound Gravel". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

Time ADHX gravel/cx bike

Not sure as to standover, but I'm 5'9" with a 32.5" inseam and got the medium... fits perfectly.

This is probably my favorite gravel bike on the market. Racy geometry, top quality with no ******** and understated good looks. A friend has a Time road bike with the exposed weave, that finish is glorious. I would very slightly prefer a threaded BB but honetly Time's BB386 is probably the best press fit setup on the market. That's not a deal killer. Also, the pricing is a bit high. Other than that, this is ideal.

Just my size! Can you put it in your will that this bike is mine after you die?

How are you liking it?

Unfortunately, I am immortal

I absolutely love the way this bike rides. I've ridden several dozen road bikes in my day, and I can easily say that this just feels planted and well-sorted. And the quality of the construction seems light years ahead of anything else on the market.

How did I stumble across yet another thread in which Caliwild extols the virtues of a bike when I have not even had time to unbox the last bike I bought at Caliwild's recommendation!?

You could always put him on ignore.

I have to admit I am somewhat haunted by an ADHX frame set up can’t settle on the color.

Buy a blue one and a green one, and give me the one you don't pick. That said, I prefer the blue one.

That is generally true, but not a primary concern (at least for me) when riding gravel.

That said, the ADHX has a very short wheelbase and does not have a dropped right chain stay, so it has fairly similar geometry to the Fluidity that this thread had led me to.

In my case it is not theoretical; she knows I do have worse vices (food, wine, whisky, gadgets ...)

Went Look instead since what I really wanted was an endurance setup that I could build up my way.

765 Optimum in beautiful Satin Black.




Still think the Time is a beautiful bike, maybe some day.

Its coming along, saddle, stem and spacers are place keepers until the right ones get here. Schwalbe pro ones were a witch to mount.

They are great, my other wheels are Mavic Open Pros on Record hubs these are quieter and being able to run larger tires at lower pressure results in a smoother ride.

Update... the 700x30 tires feel good but I feel like I need to go a bit bigger. Just don't want to lose the speed on pavement... Decisions, decisions.

Figure out what works best for the majority of your riding, and what compromises you can live with for the rest.
