GG Rocks! I love that bike.
Maxxis- Not really. I prefer my Michellins but the new yellow and blue logo I can’t deal with. At any rate I find the Assguy/dissector combo behave almost identically. Still got a stockpile of OG Michelins in 29 though.
I was struggling to ride my conventional bike for more than 30 minutes due to chemo.... today I rode this thing 15km, largely in ECO mode and after a full night without sleep (was out fishing all night). I still got excercise, but I didn't have to deal with having to stop due to muscle weakness.
Best part is, it's an $8k bike new. I scored it for $4900 at 2 months old and only 80km on the ODO.
Family rail trail outing - sticking with the new Gravelburn ethos took the new Gravel bike out. Took every bit of single track I could and started to think "yeah maybe sus forks makes sense on a gravel bike" as my wrists complained at me. Then punched myself in the dick, cause that'd be the mountain bike you left at home. Anyway, also saw a train on a rail trail in a surprisingly turn of events
