Here's another bling build from a local builder for a local rider, and it's a perfect example of the ideal all around bike for the area around Ashland, Oregon, where we're based.  A great steel frame can have a just bit of spring to it, which is why they're sometimes said to feel more 'alive' than those made from other materials, and this one definitely has the ideal amount of spring!  It's stiff, with just enough spring to take the edge off the rough stuff and make the rider feel like their bike is helping them with each pedal stroke, all while keeping the weight to a minimum to make an impressively light bike!  

With 700x42c micro-knobby tires, dynamo lighting, and a very wide range 1x drivetrain, this gravel / allroad bike is designed to rip the dirt roads that spread out in every direction from here, without feeling sluggish on the pavement!  The build is a mix of White Industries G30 cranks, tapered headset, headset spacers, and XMR rear hub with a SON Dynamo front, and a Chris King ThreadFit 30 bottom bracket.  The shifting is handled by Shimano Ultegra Shifters paired to an XT rear derailleur using a Wolftooth Tanpan.  

Check out the photos below, and let us know if you have any questions!
