Exercise but(t) do a different workout

Id say let your butt heal for a least 1 day, then ride the next day. If you can do a fitness class or a yoga class or even just vigorous home chore/yard work that would work accessory muscles/core...

Your real problem is the BCD of our crank. I believe it is 110mm so you can't install anything less than a 34t. Well, I think technically 33t, but finding that is pretty much non-existent.

The Wolftooth chainring made for Shimano Hollotech works great and will save you money, but the advice to go with the GRX-812 rear derailleur and M-8000 11-42 cassette is spot-on. Don't forget to...

That could work, but based on the OP's needs (climbing gear and gravel), it is not geared as low as the 2x drivetrain it would replace, and without a clutch there is real risk of dropping a chain,...

That bolt comes in a range of lengths. I had to buy longer one's for my bike.

Look up the Exploded View (EV) for your brakes at the Shimano technical documents website.

Between the two, the All-City would be my sure pick, as the Jamis inexplicably has a press-fit bottom bracket, and there's absolutely no need for that.

I love my Surly Cross Check. It's very versatile. You could put 25mm tires and have a fast bike, or you can put 32mm tires and rack and panniers to do grocery shopping or touring.
