Time for some news here and Gravel Grinder News has three bits from Salsa Cycles, Showers Pass, and SILCA to share today.
Salsa Cycles Announces New Stormchaser Color:
The Stormchaser single speed gravel bike returns for another run, this time in “Silver”. The bike remains pretty much unchanged from its original incarnation otherwise, which Riding Gravel tested in 2020. (Seen here)

SILCA Announces New “Gravelero” Mini-Pump:
SILCA adds to their gravel product line with a new mini-pump dubbed the “Gravelero”. Gravel Grinder News notes that it seems somewhat similar to designs by Lezyne with its retractable hose which stows into the pump’s body. SILCA says that the performance of this pump is like their well regarded Tattico Mini-Pump, which we reviewed here. The Gravelero has up to 35% more air volume per stroke though, so it fills your larger gravel tires faster with less effort.
The Gravelero pump is $75.00 USD and can be purchased direct from SILCA here: https://silca.cc/collections/inflation/products/gravelero-mini-pump
