I’ve gone gravel

intrigued by the new fangled “gravel” bikes i thought i’d have a go at converting my 29er hard tail to one. which meant swapping the tyres for some 35mm CX rubber. these feel quite odd as the rims they are now mounted to are also 35mm in width. i’ve also had to change the gearing slightly as the 32T chainring i had on meant i was almost always on the 13 or 11 tooth sprocket. I’ve now fitted thos 36T chainring which gives me a much higher gear without having to sacrifice the lower gears.
so far s good, the bike rolls well but i still have the option of some mild off road too. i’m looking forward to doing some exploring on this bike
