I set out on a solo 50 mile ride today in preparation for the Barry-Roubaix. It was a little cold and a little longer than my legs wanted. I wanted to benchmark my fitness, revealing how much work I still have to do to prepare for the 62 mile gravel race. I also wanted to try out some changes I made to the my Crux in preparation for gravel events this spring including Surly Knard 41c 120TPI tires and a Revelate Designs Tangle Frame Bag. The bike did well today, although the cable disc brakes lack in comparison to the hydraulics that were recalled by Sram. I look forward to getting the redesigned models when Sram releases them, hopefully they will last longer than five months this time…Enjoy what you read?
