ESX, Z5 and Z1 CX.

15.6lbs, 14.4lbs and 16.5lbs respectively.

They're each lovely, lovely bikes, but the ESX is something special...

And thanks to forumite Twincheez who's donation of a piece of hardware (for free!) that I was struggling to buy anywhere helped make this possible and showed the fantastic spirit of the PaceLine Forum. Thank you John.

Lovely bikes. Any chance you can reduce the image size and tell us each build?

Noticed that your gravel/Cx bike has road pedals.

Do you prefer the stability of road pedals over MTB pedals? I am torn whether to use MTB pedals or road pedals on my gravel grinder. I hate how unstable by mtb pedals feel compared to my spd-Sl.

Great looking bikes!

Wow those are nice. I noticed the Scwhalbe G-Ones on your gravel/cx bike... How do you like them? And what has their durability been like for you? Considering a pair for my cx daily commuter

Dbnm, any idea how I reduce the image sizes?

Yashcha, 99% of the time I'm either ride road to local mtb tracks in the woods or riding gravel roads between asphalt roads. Prefer road pedals (and road shoes) for that. Do have some mtb pedals and knobblies for the Prestige series!

Hoj, I'm a big fan of Schwalbe tires (pro one tubeless are awesome) but had a rough start with the G-One's. Had a number of pin hole punctures on the rear in the first few rides. Swapped out for a new rear and it's been fine since, must have been a faulty batch.

Remembering that it's dry down here in Savannah, GA, the tires are perfect for me, fast enough on road but great grip and give on mtb trails and dirt roads. Would recommend.

Put a 'm' or 'l' right before the .jpg in the img link. should reduce the size from Imgur that way. Signifies Medium or Large sized thumbnails.

Then it should read /6zfyEPkl.jpg instead of /6zfyEPk.jpg (Looks like Taptalk bumps the links to pictures, edited for text)

Thank you, like you, I think most of my rides on my gravel bike will be road and light gravel, so road pedals and road shoes will make sense. I will have mtb shoes and pedals for really muddy bad rides. Cross bikes look badass with slicks and road pedals.
