Back in June, I introduced you to the Lauf True Grit gravel bike I’ve been testing (read the Getting Rolling post here). Since then, I’ve logged nearly 1,000 miles on the bike on all sorts of Midwestern gravel, and the experience has given me good perspective on the True Grit’s capabilities. Here’s what I’ve learned.

Cantu Rova Gravel Wheelset: Getting Rolling – by MG Avid readers know that we write a lot about wheels here at Riding Gravel. There are a number of reasons for this, one of which is we simply love great wheels. When combined with the right tires, few if any other upgrades have the potential to […]
Back in April, I introduced you to the Wahoo Elemnt Bolt GPS cycling computer we have on test.
