    GF has me selecting parts and building the perfect weapon for the Land Run 100. And now I have the bike bug for myself... all the sexy steel rigs I've been looking for her has me wanting a new steel steed for myself.

    An excuse to get a new bike? In what universe is that a problem?

    Specifically this one is the one that's got my blood boiling. I'm going to build up an Ultegra one for her with 50/34 x 12x30 gearing (just incase), and some 40mm Challenge gravel grinders set up tubeless, wheels will likely be the same that I run on my BSB, DT350s laced to Velocity A23.

    Problem is that as soon as I build hers, I'm gonna "need" one for myself, even though my BSB has advantages over the surly... I'm just a sucker for steel I guess.

    I really liked the Challenge Roubiax tires, but they are super soft. I split the seam on one and the sidewall deformed on the replacement. Don't know about the Gravel Grinder, but have a few friends riding the Clement X'plor with good results.
