Just came back from my Bike Packing vacation.
It's an Open Cycles WI.DE, mullet Group with SRAM FORCE eTAP AXS 1X 44T + Quarq DZero in the front and SRAM Eagle AXS XX1 Cassette and Deraileur in the rear. Bar and Stem are the Gravel specific ENVE parts. The wheel setup is my "summer setup" with 9th Wave Anath 700 Carbon Gravel Wheels with Maxxis Re-Fuse Tubeless 40c Tires. In Winter I ride Stan's Arch CB7 with Super wide Schwalbe RockRazor Addix 2.4Inch.

The weight is 8.4 as it is right now + semi permanent headlight from Lupine + Semi-Permanent Top tube bag + 0.8kg when I have my winter wheels on.
How do you like that enve gravel handlebar? Got a regular lying around, but is the gravel one worth it?

It's very wide, especially the long Drops have huge flare. I think it is very comfortable and also good to control in rougher terrain.

All right. Maybe I should get a size smaller than normal then.

Yes, it is definitely very wide. If you want to ride your gravel like a racer, it might not be perfect. For comfort and very long rides it's perfect. But sizing down is a good idea.

I've been pining for a metallic green frame and this Rove ST frameset came up at an unrefusable price.
The green is so pretty. We must think alike - a few years ago my two bikes were a Burls and a Rove.

2016 Jamis Supernova Team.
Painted the fork ala Palace X EF. Currently has 38s with some room, though not certain how tight 40s would be.
Fantastic geo. Technically a CX bike but really feels like a roadie (not too high from the ground).
Weight with pedals and cages- 19.1lbs/8.66kg

@JustRidelt ; love your Specialized ... I was going for the same model/colour - but couldn't get a right fit on the 54 or 56. The 54 was to short and I should have used a 110mm stem - on the 56 the front end was to high... bit of a bummer, but bought myself a BMC URS One size M :

Image

There are be some changes:

* DT SWISS C1850 will be the winter wheelset with the WTB Raddler's - tubeless.
* Zipp 303S are on the bike now for the better days with Pirelli Cinturato Gravel H - tubeless

* Groupset will be Shimano GRX 810 1 x 11 ( all disc bikes here are Shimano so no oil issues with Sram then.( Originaly Sram Apex 1 x 11 ))
* Setback seatpost from BMC ( Longer torso shorter legs )
* Stem / handlebar switched from BMC/Easton to Pro Discover Carbon 20 degree flare and matching stem 80mm instead of 70mm.

So my setback / reach and stack will be almost the same as on my road bikes. Reach will be 1cm shorter I guess and stack will be 2cm higher. Old groupset had been dismounted from the bike and on it's way to the new owner.
