Thanks all!

The alloy frame/steel fork/big Compass tire combination makes for a plush, planted ride, that's rather inviting of riding really, really fast.

I snapped that pic on Old County Rd in Bristol, ME.

Great combo. If the terrain turns a bit rougher and you find yourself needing a bit more traction, try gravel king SK. It will produce the same result.

the promethazine bottle is the only excuse to put your helmet in the dirt like that.

Thanks! The fenders are Berthoud 26" 60mm fenders that have been ever so slightly massaged/reradiused for 650b use.

No idea, tbh. I asked Paul to make it look like a Unicorn took a dump, and he came back with "Maybe something like a rainbow trout," which I think pretty apt.

Haha both are fantastic interpretations of that color. I'd say he nailed it.

Thanks! They’re 2.0s, so not ultra wide. We’re planning a largely dirt route, and I’ve heard rumor of goatheqds, so I wanted something a little burlier and tubeless than the Compass I usually run.

Really looking forward to some time in short sleeves in the sun. I’ve been back and forth between TN and NYC a lot this fall and it’s cold and wet everywhere.

Those front bags are nice. How are they exactly carried on the fork legs... something similar to a Salsa Anything Cage?

Superb bike!
