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 :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

I don't have a scale so I can't verify, but JensonUSA gives you a cute "guarantee of quality" card with bikes you buy from them that show the weight since they build them up before shipping to you. 21.2 lbs is what they said which is a bit heavy for a carbon bike, but then again this build comes with horribly heavy 2100 gram Shimano RS wheels and non-tubeless tires, so it'd be easy to drop that weight below 20lbs with a better wheelset and tires. The frame is quoted at around 1300g and the fork at less than 400g, so it's not like the frame is the problem. I have no idea what it weighs with the Stan's wheelset shown in the picture, but it feels significantly lighter at least.

I'm beyond my weight weenie days and I much prefer to focus on the ride quality of a frame, which this LOOK delivers in spades.

Is that 21.2lbs with pedals?

I have the same bike. Bought a nice set of road wheels and mounted 700x32 GP5000s. Bike is a do it all dream. Replaced the 105 FD, RD and crankset with the Ultegra bits from my Look 585 not because the 105 was a problem, just because I will never ride the 585 again.

My Giant Revolt Advanced 2 by the Lehigh River in PA. Only upgrade thus far is absoluteBlack 48/32 oval chainrings, which I got after marking the OEM 48 into a 47 (oops). Next is ditching the lead wheels!

So... I couldn't leave it be.
Switched to 2x10 brifters, dual pivot brakes and higher spoke count wheels. 36/26 x 11-28

I've been struggling with my Terra, fit wise, for months now, so when I saw that my LBS had a great price on a Cervelo Aspero, I couldn't resist. It was the Apex 1 model, but I stripped it down to the frame, and and transferred over everything from my Terra.

So it's been a while of tinkering with my bikes but I think I finally have my bikes dialed in for the type of riding I do. Here are my Giant "Gravel Bikes":





I originally thought getting the Revolt would replace the Toughroad for me, however I was able to make the Toughroad functionally different & now I have way more fun riding it now than I did when I first got it to be completely honest. I'm also running the widest possible tires on both bikes, as well as 50cm Cowchippers (Revolt) and 52cm PNW Coast bars (Toughroad). Never going back to narrow bars or narrow tires

Upgraded my Cernunnos Touro with the parts that come out of my Trek Checkpoint.
Tiagra 4700 drivetrain with an Ultegra RX rear derailleur and RS405 hydraulic brake levers and some entry level shimano MTB calipers, because I didn't want to deal with flatmount adapters. I also changed the handlebar to a PRO Discover Big Flare 42cm.

The latest addition to the stable. New 2021 S-Works Diverge built up with Shimano GRX Di2, Enve Gravel bars, Enve G23 Wheels. Did the DK200 on the previous generation of this bike. Added tire clearance and now FutureShock is nice.

My new bike!

I was very lucky to find one in stock during this time, especially with the color I wanted.

It rides as good as it looks 🙂
