That's the beauty of gravel bikes, you can ride them from your doorstep to your MTB trails, hit some single track maybe add some fire road miles, then roady back home. It's the most versatile bike.

Plus, because it's sketchy on technical terrain, it makes your old MTB trails feel new again. New lines etc.

If you haven't already, get some tubeless tires for sure, so much better.

I did not for years, but now I do almost all the time. So nice/fast/comfortable/dry/warm...

I'm averaging 90 mi/week.


Serious cycling clothes are a "costume" the way a wetsuit is. A nice thick chamois pad makes for a comfy day in the saddle, and a wicking top with zipper and rear pockets for phone/food etc is essential. And don't forget the delights of arm warmers.

Now, of course, there are rules -- do not wear matching team kit unless that team is employing you to race for them. Do not wear white lycra shorts. Bibs are cool. Sunglass arms go OUTSIDE of the helmet straps. Mid-thigh length shorts ==> no.

^2 corrections: On many MTB helmets the strap exits very wide and goes over sunglasses. Girls look very nice in shorter inseam shorts in non-black colors.

What is it that attracts people to a costume?

I am so anti costume. I have always been.

It's genetic.

I'm kind of beast too so . . . .

So much all this.

I rebelled and rode a ton in regular, cotton clothes for probably 7 years. foreheadslap

The thing that finally pushed me over the edge was the 35 degree winter mornings. Not easy to stay warm and comfortable and dry whilst riding hard, without "the costume".

Unless you are wearing jeans when you deadlift, you too are wearing a costume. smile2

on my ride this morning I passed serious looking lancer in a unitard on his aerobike not once but twice. First time I saw him I thought to myself this guy looks serious and pulled up behind him and drafted him for about a half mile. I found myself coasting too much and passed him leaving him in the dust. I peeled off the rose bowl loop to take the high road through altadena and when I was coming back down the hill back onto the rose bowl loop he pulled in front of me again. Rinse repeat. I was wearing baggie shorts and a MTB helmet with a visor.

I like the term "costume" because it connotes dress up.
