My personal gravel bike

Seen here is my personal gravel bike that i made in 2017.

The geometry is somewhat relaxed for long rides and tours, the bottom bracket height is nicely low and feels well grounded. It’s a great riding bike and looks awesome with the sky blue powdercoat that has a big sparkle in the sunlight. Here are some pictures and the geometry drawing.

  1. Very interested, I’m 6’1 with 32 inseam. Currently ride 58cm . I have been looking for gravel bike for touring.

    1. I’m also 6’1” with a proportionally linger torso than legs so this bike has great standover. It has eyelets for fenders but not rack mounts for panniers. However I could put a different fork on there like the Rodeo Spork (v2) that has bosses for both a rack and fenders and internal routing for a dynamo hub.
      Send me an email and I’ll send more detailed photos of you want?
