Alliance Gravel

Huge thanks to Alliance Frame builder Erik Rolf in Hailey, ID. He also gets the photo cred here.

Took delivery of this in December and only about 200 miles on it so far, but I can already tell it is a sweet ride. It is perfect for the 10 miles of road to my local trails where there are many steep fire road climbs. Can't wait to do some longer mixed terrain rides including bringing it back to its native Idaho for Rebecca's. Thanks again Erik!

Those are White Ind. VBC rings with the matching square taper arms.

OP - beauty and really nice touches with the components. Enjoy!

They feel solid and should last forever. Easy to adjust when needed. While I have hydro disc on my full suspension 29er, I was going for simplicity and bling here. Also, although functional, I’m not really into the shape of the SRAM hydro hoods aesthetically.

Thanks! It’s a 46/30t with 11-36 in the rear.

This is pretty much how I'd like my dream gravel bike set-up. Also how I'd like my dream work bench!

Looking forward to hearing ride reports!
