I had a sneaking suspicion that I was going to find this to be a firm riding set-up, and once I got into the dirt, I was right.
This week, Eurobike is happening after being muted or cancelled due to the pandemic the last two years. That means a lot of news is coming out this week.
The Ritchey Speedmax WCS 700 X 40mm tires have an iconic look, an aggressive looking tread pattern, and seem pretty stout with their Stronghold casing.
Opening the box and looking at a 25mm internal rim, they sure look wide, especially with the hookless rim design.
The Kimberlite is a tire that American Classic says is meant for pavement and mixed-surface rides. However; here at Riding Gravel’s home, we have found that a minimal amount of tread works fine on deeper, loose gravel.
The unique and long awaited gravel road capable version of the Ergon seat post is here and it looks pretty unique.
Shimano has chosen this week to announce new GRX level components in conjunction with the lead-up to this coming weekend’s Unbound Gravel event.
