Lifes too short to ride shat tires. the frame and group are amazing. I know its still got that honeymoon status/feel to it but man its fun for what I do. thanks for your input btw

True that.

That honeymoon feel doesn't go away, at least for the first year, IME.

Anytime! Like I said, I'm just an enabler.

I made the ballsy move to ride mine in the Iron Cross race over the weekend. It (and I) did OK. I wasn't comfortable on my CX bike as I haven't put a lot of miles on it since I crashed in June.

Had it been dry, I would have done a little better on this bike, but I've never raced before.

Does not using tires you love because you fear they might puncture or something really make sense? Carry a spare tube and a piece of duct tape if you're going to ride somewhere you'd have to hike out of.

it makes sense when I have 3 kids under 6 and my ride time is extremely limited. I don't get off my bike to piss, eat or enjoy the scenery. Its a mental cleansing for me. so yeah i absolutely do not need that inconvenience. I still think the tires are top notch in ride quality. Jury is still out on durability. I'll run them until something happens to change my mind
Id also buy the stampede pass to run my wound up fork...but they are not tubeless compatible

Total weight... I have no idea.. i don't have a scale anymore but I can use the bathroom scale technique and it should be close.

maybe go for the non extra light?

I dunno, I never had any problems with compass tires. Take em where I take any tire and never had a single problem. Never bought extralights though. I really think they are tougher than they look

I've got two kids under six so I certainly empathize with the desire to maximize the time. I wouldn't continue to use parts that let me down; mine just haven't yet.

I'm not betting on it, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Stampede Pass is the next existing Compass tire to go tubeless.

You are correct sir! That shot captures some of what I miss the most about not living there any longer!

Bike looks spectacular, great build!

More miles more dirt. Really an extremely comfortable riding bike. Fits me great still working on a couple tweaks but overall 👍👍. This ride started deep in the heart of Iowa ultra conservative land.. I was pretty surprised by the response of people’s waves and smiles etc. probably laughing at the idiot on gravel w a bicycle in November. Either way I’ll take it. Even a guy w a giant REDNECK windshield sticker waved at me. New roads and shorts on a November afternoon in Iowa I’ll take that.

That's one of the funny things about Iowa. They all know RAGBRAI, so they are comfortable with bikes. It's what people do. It's a different mindset, and it's cool.
