Let's Retire the Term "Gravel Grinder"

I guess alliteration is cool, but referring to a bike or an event as a "gravel grinder" just seems so 2010.

Kudos for providing links! IMO, a major plus for the Trek is the threaded bottom bracket. If the weight difference is several pounds, that might decide it. If less than that,??? Interesting...

As far as I'm concerned, the main difference is carbon over aluminum. If that's worth $600 to you, the choice is obvious. Personally, I'm quite happy with my Defy and actually like the seatpost as it...

For a long gentle climb, consider Enumclaw to Crystal Mountain road. 30 miles and 2500ft. Ride all the way to the ski lift base for another six miles a bit steeper.
