Our neighbor here in Ashland, Mike De Salvo, consistently turns out some of the nicest welded bikes in the business. So when Mike gets asked to produce something for a special event like the Chris King Open House or Grinduro Builders Showcase you know what he comes up with is going to be impressive.

This year he put together this stunning monster gravel bike complete with big tire clearance and dropper post.. perfect for that rowdy Grinduro course, until Grinduro was canceled!

So, this bike may not have graced the builders showcase at the event but we jumped at the chance to feature it here on our blog to showcase some of our favorite products from Chris King, White Industries and Astral rims. Sit back and enjoy the build... oh and we hear on the grapevine this actual bike is for sale, just contact Mike direct at mike@desalvocycles.com
