Here's the bike that I ride on gravel, which is also my travel bike. I have it set up for the mix of mostly pavement and hardpack dirt around here and the Clement X'Plor USH works well for these conditions. I run a compact road crankset up front and a SLX 9-speed rear derailleur with a 11-32 cassette. The wheels pictured will hopefully be replaced soon as they have proven not to be very robust.

My newest bike, almost done. Gravel singlespeed with clearance for Nanos. Stealth cable routing for possible Alfine or geared use. Three or two water bottles or even Anything cages. 25.4 seatpost for more flexibility (we'll see) and lots of options in carbon and titanium for building my own posts. Low bottom bracket (82mm drop).

Previous bike in Odin's Revenge setup. It's sort of a cyclocross/randonneur hybrid.

Very cool. Looks like you'll have great clearance in the chainstay area. What crankset will that design accommodate? Does it have to have smaller than usual chainrings?

It's actually on the narrow side since it only can clear a Nanoraptor and the stays are fairly long, so with a road chainline it should take up to about a 46.

Searched last year for something with disk and lower BB. Came upon this new offering from Soma, the Triple Cross, in polished stainless steel tubes. Added carbon bars and fork to reduce some vibration. Still tweaking components but overall happy with the ride.

Here's my daily driver/all arounder. 2012 Cinelli Experience, SRAM Force, Ritchey WCS Zetas, and 28c Panaracer Paselas. Pretty much spot on for the hardpack back roads in Florida. And also pretty much spot on for my weekly group rides and the occasional road race and alley cat.

Built this frame up with 650b wheels, really liking it so far, yet to be tested on gravel, tho... [img_20140313_142407_073]  Also can fit fatter tires

First forum post!

I have to multipurpose bikes so I do not have a dedicated gravel bike. I ride my CX bikes on gravel.

Only put a few miles in so far, but I'm liking the ride very much. This is more or less the setup that I'm thinking of running for Almanzo. The bike is ready, the rider, not so much.

This is the Secondary Road Dept. stockpile which will be getting spread all around once grading starts up. It never hurts to get an early introduction, we'll be seeing a lot of one another over the next few weeks.

Specialized Tricross Elite Disc with wheel & crank upgrades. The crank is a Sugino OX801D with 44/30 rings. This crank's Q-factor is a bit narrow for the chain line on this bike, so I have two crossover gears on the small ring. I plan to try some shims to fix that. For long rides, I can add a second bag below the rack and strap a couple of extra bottle cages to the fork. Sometimes the pedals get swapped with SPD's.

Not much gravel nearby but I do try to ride it if I get the chance.

First ride on my new GT Grade. The ground was a little wet, so I slapped on a fender.

My first post!  I love seeing all of the great bikes here.  This is my 2001 Lemond Poprad.  1 x 9 (39t/11-32)  2nd shot is most current that I have.  On that ride I popped a rear drive side spoke, so now it wears a sturdier wheelset (DT Swiss 240s/RR415 28/32h)  I'm a recent "all roads" convert and now ride this bike more than my others combined.
