Hey Okie Outdoorsman and SargentCountyGravelCult, 

It's great to hear that you two are finding some useful information here. I appreciate that, being new to this sort of thing, that you feel included in the discussion here. I think that it's important to be able to reach people who are in your situation. At this point in the game, oftentimes there will be a lot of focus on all of the events and the latest "gravel" offerings, because there is a ton of interest in it. That info does provide some good general information, but we very much appreciate your contributions like this because it shows other who are in your position or just starting their own search that others are out there with the same questions.

Thanks again. We appreciate the support. If you ever have any questions or want to see something on the site that isn't there, please send me an email at ben@ridinggravel.com.

Later,
Ben

"The Tire Pressure Revolution" - https://janheine.wordpress.com/2015/01/26/the-tire-pressure-revolution/

What do you all think about this post? How much have you considered the tires, tire pressure, suppleness? We'd like to hear what others have to say.

Check out http://gravelcyclist.com - I've been blogging over five months, and just returned from Australia after spending five weeks there.  There are some AMAZING gravel roads in South Australia.

A couple of samples:

It seems the majority of gravel riders and racers alike prefer psi in the 40s
Yet I am surprised that so many run tires that are quite skinny width (35-40) for that psi when one could run 2" width at that pressure
As other studies also show - at the same psi skinny is not faster than wider

Good thoughts on current status of gravel and such.

My blog is called 'sconnyboy.

It includes write-ups on Trans Iowa, Heck of the NorthAlmanzo, Ten Thousand, and a bunch of miscellaneous gravelall-road, and winter rides.
