New Bike Day

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1248

It’s a special day … new bike day!

I’ve long wanted to add a gravel/all-road bike to my stable and today that is happening, as I took possession of a semi-custom bike from Denver, Colorado based Rodeo Adventure Labs.  Don’t let these sexy photos fool you, I spec’d this bike (Trail Donkey 3.0 is the model) to be a practical, blue-collar, gravel workhorse.

Complementing the carbon frame and fork, my build of choice includes a Rival 1 gearbox, 40 tooth crank affixed to a creak-suppressing T47 bottom bracket. The entire rig will be rolling atop carbon 700c tubeless rims, shredding dirt courtesy of 40mm tires. My ass will enjoy the luxury of a dropper post, and I’ll be navigating this steed via a carbon cockpit.

I expect to be pushing this go-anywhere bike over miles and miles of gravel, single-track, and even the occasional stretch of tarmac.

Big thanks to everyone at Rodeo Adventure Labs who helped me in this purchase process.

Happy new bike day to me! 🚵🏼‍♂️
