I haven't been around here in a while. 

I decided to upgrade my gravel bike this off-season from the 2015 Norco Search (standard Carbon Ultegra model) to the new Norco Search XR.  The new bike has stock WTB 650 wheels and SRAM Force 1 drive train.  This picture was taken on the first day, and is pretty much stock.  I haven't even tweaked the cockpit yet.  It's all stock except the WTB ByWay 47mm tires.

I have new Boyd Joccassee wheels coming later this week and will post more pics when we have some decent riding weather.

I thought I would post up some of my older gravel bikes, back before there were "gravel bikes".  I was always more of a mountain biker than a road biker, so my first gravel bike I built in 2007 was a Motobecane Fly.  It had road cranks and Scott AT2 bars.  It was a fun bike, but over time I realized the suspension fork was not really useful on a gravel bike and that I really needed a drop bar bike for a more aero riding position.  So in 2012 I built up an On One Dirty Disco.  At the time a cross bike with disc brakes was pretty novel.  The only problem is like most cross bikes of the time, tire room was limited.  You could squeeze in a 38, but it was tight.  35 was about the biggest you could safely fit.  The Motobecane was sold long ago, but the Dirty Disco lives at my parents house so I can ride when I go to visit them.

Litespeed Gravel on first ride at Berry College in Rome, GA. USA.
SRAM Rival 1
Ritchey bars, seatpost, and saddle.
Redshift suspension stem
Wheelset built with DT Swiss asymmetric 29” rims and 350 hubs.

Prior to the LS I setup a Salsa Mukluk with a 29x2.5” wheelset. Adventures on that bike proved to me how much I enjoyed riding gravel and is a keeper. But I could not keep pace on the Mukluk during some group rides as I was at a disadvantage compared with dropbar gravel bikes. The LS Gravel should allow me to join in with group gravel rides and events with riders on similarly efficient bikes.

My Crux Pro with its new shoes: handbuilt Stan's Grail 24/28h rims laced to DT Swiss 350 hubs.  SRAM Force CX1 and Rival 1 DT with Sigma Rox 11.0 computer and cadence/speed sensor.  Running Hutchinson Sector 28 mm tires for winter training.  Wonderful machine.

I want to build a wheel with the same rim and hub combo, any issues?

No problems yet, and I don’t expect any. This is my third wheelset with DT Swiss 350 hubs. The other two wheelsets are the Big Ride fat bike spaced version of the 350 hubs with 36 ratchet upgrade (10 degree engagement).
I am also a long time fan of assymetric rims from way back in my 26” MTB riding days. The Mukluk has 29” WTB Asym i35 rims and has been absolutely bombproof on rough gravel and singletrack. I expect the XR361 rims, 28 hole front & 32 hole rear, to be very durable as well. At my weight I could have specified 24f &28r and it probably would have been just fine for long term gravel riding. But I like bombproof, single track tough wheelsets and figure these wheels would hold up fine in the event that I decide to give bikepacking a try.

I ride Hutchinson Sector 28's for winter riding too. I really like how they ride. It's made my Trek Crockett my everyday bike....road or gravel...just switch out wheelsets, adjust the disc brakes and roll.

Try these shim: https://www.syntace.com/index.cfm?pid=3&pk=757 you won't have to adjust your brakes every time you are swapping wheels. I use them to run two different wheelset on my fat bike. There's a similar product for centerlock brake.

WowThat green/black combo looks rad! Wish I had something like that as well. [love]
