CAn you take a picture of the clearance in the clearance between the chainstay and the 47mm 650b Terravail Rampart tires?  I am curious to see how much clearance there is.  

Thanks,

AWD

My Advanced 1 finally arrived today.  Later that the first promise, but earlier than the second.

Added computer, pedals, cages; weighed in at 21.33 pounds.  Hopefully, I’ll be riding it this weekend.

More to follow after a ride or two.

The Revolt Advanced may not be compatible with Di2 either.... [frown]




You find anything out yet from Giant??

In the next video he reveals how his worries about not being able to run the wires for Di2 were ill conceived.  He had to cut and then re-splice the wires to do it but it worked fine in the end.  Bike shops likely do this kind of thing all the time.

I ordered my XL Revolt 0 on a Sunday, took possession two Wednesdays later. (Two weeks ago). I have a very nice road bike, a Tallboy and the Revolt. The only one I'm riding is the Revolt. Have WTB Resolute 42 tires on it. Plenty of clearance. Absolutely love this thing.

How's the weight with the Resolutes on, Tallboy?  I haven't heard great things about the overall stock weight but that could be because the stock tires are like 60 tpi.

Just a little over 20 lbs. ready to ride. Which I thought was pretty light for a bike that size. I think it might even be a little lighter than my road bike.

Hi, can any of you who own a Revolt Advanced, please, tell me the Axle to Crown length?

So when it's -10F, I buy stuff for bikes. That's how I ended up with a set of MasonXHunt 4Seasons with 650bx47 WTB Horizons. Even though I could only ride it around inside, seems like it's going to be a really comfortable introduction to road+.

Looks good. Be interesting to hear how the 650B changes the handling and the ride.

My initial feel is that it's really nimble/handling is snappy for the size and cushion of the tire. I've ridden a Cannondale Slate before and it kind of fells similar to that.

Wondering how folks are getting on with the stock D-Fuse bars. I test rode the Advanced 2 today and found the bars to be stable though quite a bit wider than my road bike. I normally run 38cm/40cm wide and while these are advertised as 40cm, they seemed extra wide, esp with the flare out on the drops that puts my wrist in an unfamiliar position. My initial thought is to swap the bar out for a carbon/alloy road bar but I'm curious if these wider bars are by design to allow for better gravel/downhill handling and to compensate the short stem.

I have no experience with these certain bars, but I felt the same way when I bought a gravel bike with flared bars.  After time, I got used to them, and they became a non-issue for me.  Last year, I bought a new road bike, and now the non-flared bars are the ones that feel unfamiliar and uncomfortable.  I would recommend riding the D-Fuse bars for awhile, and if they still don't feel good, then throw a set of road bars on there.

The D-fuse bars definitely absorb some of the bumps but I still hate them.  The shape and lack of substantal flare are awful (I'm used to 12-16°).  The 31.8 clamping section is only about the size of the stock stem so my Wahoo mount sits loosely.

I'm putting some of my trusty Ritcheys on today.
