If you like to ride with your hands on the tops often, I highly recommend you consider bars with a 4 or 5 degree sweep back design, very very comfortable. Of course that narrows the options and...

Might be where the levers are mounted on the bars, higher in the first picture and lower in the second one. Notice the bars look to have the bar ends pointed more downward in the second picture and...

Personally I would never use 60 minutes max effort to measure my FTP, I just don't see the value for a number of reasons. Measuring it to show progress towards a specific goal maybe.

New Bike Day

Well, it's actually been ready to ride for a couple weeks but finally got it out for the first ride today - road wheels on it for this spin, not gravel.

I would guess it's going to be through early Summer - flattening the curve also means making it longer.

My experience, the BB is plenty stiff climbing in the Aluminum version. With the right tires and wheels is comfortable to me. I ran 28mm GP 4000 SII or 35mm bon jon pass tires both with tubes with...

RLT 9 Aluminum and RLT 9 RDO (Carbon) both have internal cables and would work well as road bikes. I've used my RLT9 Aluminum many times as a road bike. I even beat a friend on a morning ride sprint...

You wouldn't suffer much of a penalty using a gravel bike as a road bike, many of them would be great at both. A road bike will probably limit what you can do on gravel, but the question is will the...

I built the frame up from scratch, but you could certainly have a shop swap out the BB for you if you aren't comfortable doing it. The BB is about $60 online, and it would take a decent mechanic...

There's always an aero advantage with deeper rims, and it adds up the longer you are on the bike riding. When the tire profile doesn't transition smoothly to the wheel you start losing the aero help...

I think it really depends on how you will ride your bike and the tire choice. If you are doing double centuries on rough courses like DK200, and have the disposable income, the Carbon Frame is the...
