What's your gravel set up my guy? I am happy with my Marin Nicasio + but fire roads shake my wrists loose

I run 38c Tervail Cannonball tires at about 40 psi and it seems to work well. 42s are better though, I just don't have the clearance on my current bike.

Out of 20 something. It was in the Northern Finland so not that many bothered to drove all the way up there. I'd say normally there are like 70-100 participants on the 100+km loops.

Lol most people don't even go to non pro races near a city.

Looks like an amazing race though!

I've got 47C WTB Horizon tires I think my pressure may be too high because I do have a cromo frame as well, shit shouldn't rattle so much

What kind of pressures are you running? With my 42c Teravails I ran about 35-40 psi and it was great. Also I had fairly wide carbon rims.

I'm currently running Pirelli Cinturato Gravel Hs in 45 with about 30psi. Definitely the best tire option for last weekend and I really like these better than 40s.

What's this Pinkbike Vital talk all about?

On another note, did a 135km gravel race yesterday. Finished second. The course was so tough. Biggest climbs I've ever climbed.

looks like a helluva sweet course wale...! congrats on P2... Salute

3-3.5 bar?

That sounds quite high. Maybe try like 2.5 bar and see if it helps.

I'll give it a shot, thanks

Any of you guys run oval chainrings? My mechanic put one on my bike because it was all he had on hand and the old chainring was totally spent. I also had a new cassette, chain and bearings installed so it was probably a combination of factors, but the bike was flying uphill. I thought of oval rings as a placebo but now I'm having second thoughts?

I've been on the oval train for a few years now, my iffy knee really appreciates it.

I've briefly ridden one and it felt extremely odd. Almost like it was clocked incorrectly but I think I followed the instructions correctly. Didn't go for a proper ride on it though.

Just installed an AB 30T, to replace the round 30T that was installed a couple weeks before, during an upgrade. What a difference it's made on the steep technical climb that I do for an hour during my local ride route. Literally night and day difference for me.
