Ching’s Custom Gravel Bike
Another build for the Gravel Travels crew….
Ching told him she wanted a fast bike that would let her explore places beyond the road. The result is a gravel/cross bike with a gentle nod to the lifestyle of East Van.
She’s running Sram Apex 1 x groupset with hydro brakes. Everything else, like the bars and stem are Ritchey. She’s running 40c Maxxiss Rambler tires in front and 38 in the back. Ching’s loving the wider tires in off road situations and says she might even go wider.
For accessories, she’s got an Apidura frame bag, saddle bag, and handlebar bag for bike packing trips. The Farsik stem beg keeps her beer at a reachable distance, and a Niner Yawyd top cap so she can fit in with the hip bike gang.
This bike is built for bike camping and gravel grinding. And making Dave jealous.
