You know it’s been a good ride when the bike looks like this

Trying out some new bike packing bags, made by Roswheel. They are all laser welding so fully waterproof, with much more space and attachment points than other bags I’ve used

How do you like the Gravelking SKs for the stuff around here? Are those 650x48?

Not sure if I'm riding or doing something incorrectly, but my 650x48 SKs can get a bit squirrely on some of the gravel around here (even on climbs). I have the pressure set at 20 psi front and 22 psi rear, which sounds low but matches up with ENVE's recommended settings for my weight, rim width, and tire width.

They are the 650b x 48 gk sk. I like them because they are equally capable on the road and on the trails. For some of the looser stuff I don't find them too great, I've been waiting to wear this pair out to try something more aggressive.

I'm running a bit higher pressure, I find they get a bit squirrelly close to 20 psi

Are you going to stick with 650b when you go more aggressive? I'm looking to do the same.

Options for knobbier stuff around 48mm wide seem to be WTB Sendero (47), Teravail Rutland (47), WTB Venture (47), and Rene Herse Juniper Ridge (48).

I'm going to go wider and use mountain bike tires. I have a set of Onza Canis (27.5 x 2.25) that I'd like to try since they were a great deal. The bike was built for 27.5 x 2.2 so fingers crossed. If not I'll do a Vittoria Mezcal, or a Schwalbe Thunder Burt

Wow! onza canis 27.5 x 2.25 fit with ease, even under the older enve cx fork. On stan’s valor pro rims these mounted tubeless with a floor pump. Stoked to try them out

I’ve been ripping on this bike for a year now . Replaced all the bearings, crankset and brake pads and she’s like a brand new bike . Still so fun

Beautiful bike. Saw you up on Sutro last week dropping into the south side trails. I was on the light blue Hunter which almost the exact opposite of this bike in terms of technology. Would love to try a gravel setup like this someday
