State Bicycle Co. Warhawk: Getting Rolling- by Guitar Ted The world of bicycling has a lot of niche categories. Obviously “gravel bikes” are one of those, (but maybe becoming less so everyday), and there are plenty of others I can think of right off the top of my head. “Niche”- just what does that mean […]
Noble Bikes GX5 Gravel Bike: Getting Rolling- by Guitar Ted Gravel cycling has been hot of late and so there has been a flurry of activity from several companies looking to take advantage of this style of riding. This bike from Noble Bikes may seem like one of those kinds of moves to hop on […]
Easton EA 90 SL Wheels: Getting Rolling- by Grannygear I was sitting astride my bike, surrounded by riders all milling about, some on their bikes, some standing around drinking coffee, chatting, and taking pictures. I was about 15 minutes away from starting the Rivet Raid gravel event, a lovely tour of sorts over the Santa […]
WTB Venture 650B X 47mm Tires: Checkpoint SoCal- by Grannygear Editor’s Note- In our “Getting Rolling” post on these tires, Guitar Ted had hoped that Winter was not going to show up, but he was quite in error in hoping for that!

In this post, we have three items which don’t really […]
Easton EA70 AX Disc Wheels: Getting Rolling- by Guitar Ted The wheels for a bicycle are something that is one of my personal favorite things to nerd out on. We have had the luxury here at RidingGravel.com to have had a good amount of wheels come through to be reviewed. I know that many of […]
Without a doubt, there is a lot to like about the Cantu Rova wheelset. The weight is competitive, at 1567 grams for our set. While it’s true there are lighter options available, most aren’t using 35mm section, 30mm wide external/24mm internal width rims.
Editor’s Note: Winter is upon us but that doesn’t mean we have to stop cycling. Our Riding Gravel contributors, Grannygear and MG will be giving us the lowdown on some gear we have been sent that will allow you to stay warm and meet your Winter gravel riding needs. Next up in our Winter Wear […]
Breezer Inversion Team: At The Finish- by Grannygear The last ride on the Breezer Inversion Team before it’s return trip to the Breezer mother ship was just a noodle around town, a stretch of the legs before honey-do’s consumed my day.
