Picked up the new Addict Gravel 40, with 12 speed GRX, a couple of weeks ago. It looks orange in pictures, is described as orange, but in reality is a really nice Coral colour with a bit of shimmer. Seems I am destined to own bikes that don’t show the real colour in pictures - my sapphire ice Cervelo S5 is the same.

Changed some bits. Added a 50/34 Dura Ace 9200 chainset, Hunt Carbon Gravel Race 40 wheels, XT rotors and some Roval Terra 40cm carbon bars. Chunked off some weight til I added the Specialized Pathfinder Pro 47mm monster truck tyres at 600+ grams per tyre 😳 Bike is pretty much bang on 8.9kg ready to ride (elite cages, Favero Assioma duo pedals and Wahoo mount on the bike) which ain’t bad.

As for the ride. I am utterly loving this thing. May be the most impressed I have initially been with a new bike and I’ve had a good few top end bikes - yet this is actually the base model.feels great on the road, with only the more relaxed fork angle giving it away as a gravel bike, but feels utterly superb on the trails. Pretty happy haha.

Cheers
Nice bike. Have Gravel 30 from last year. 12 speed GRX? Not 11 speed? It is Di2 or mechanical?
Thanks. Yeah new 12 speed GRX mechanical, with 50-34 up front (but came with 46-30 GRX crankset I think) and 11-36 rear cassette.

I think a new 12 speed GRX Di2 is on the way - thread on the CX & Gravel forum about it somewhere.

I have also already upgraded the crank to Ultegra 12s 50/34 with Giant Pro powermeter. Planning to do also 105 Di2 upgrade, but am waiting for that GRX 12x Di2, to see the price and availability.

Swapped 2x AXS (43/30x10-36) for 1x Eagle (40x10-50), just to try it out (as I had eagle on my MTB, good that AXS is so easy to swap). I think I like it a bit more (mainly the looks :D ). I thought I will be bothered by the jumps (I spend most of my time on a road bike in groups), but it was okay, I am used to change cadence with rolling terain/climbs. At least with this setup I can have a normal Quarq powermeter (difficult with 43/30, as I don't want PWM pedals). I might keep it like this and give my MTB T-upgrade :)

What's the best fenders for addict gravel? I have SKS speedrockers at the moment, but wish the front one would be little bit longer on both ends, any suggestions?
Original Syncros ones are with no delivery date...

The original ones rule, too bad you can't find them. I have them on my bike and they are long and a snug fit. Work fine in all kinds of weather (it's my winter bike).

I have speedrockers too, but haven't used them too much on the Addict gravel yet.
I'd previously got a 2nd rear guard off ebay and was using that on the front. There looks to be options to use the threaded fork and seatstay mounts in place of one set of the SKS rubber mounts.
I'd wondered about a Cannondale adjustable bridge on the top of the seatstays and more mods too.
Likewise, Scott mudguards seem out of stock for the long haul here.

In my opinion the original Syncros fenders for Addict Gravel are quite narrow and really short, especially on the front. I was thinking about trying Canyon Grizl fenders for the winter.

Let me know how the original Grizl fenders work. I still have them, as previously had Grizl. Now have Addict Gravel but am too lazy to try them on. Or better said, I automaticly thought they will not fit, as Grizl has bigger tyre clearance. And still have months of time to find a solution. And use fenders on gravel only late Fall (like November) on road, when there are plenty of rainy rides.
