LOVE the new bike Houston! I think it’s an interesting departure geometry wise from the 44. VERY curious to here how they ride different!
It goes faster. And sometimes I feel like I’m gonna endo but I don’t. That’s the differences.

I have a new gravel bike. It's not a road bike.

Because of the longer chainstays you ordered. Curious how the shorter top tube vs longer stem plays out too. Anyways... stoked for you!! Wish I could retire too! . Soon!! fingers crossed!

I’m not sure why, but I think it goes faster because it is about 6-7 pounds lighter. DT Swiss Huns always feel like they roll faster too. Although it has a shorter top tube and long stem the reach is exactly the same as my 44.

made a saddlebag out of an old Manhattan Portege bag which fits my saddle without affecting the AXS battery. It holds 2 CO2, Dynaplug racer, Barfly tire lever/co2 chuck, and a tubolite 29er tube. Mount Tam in the distance.
