For me, it's a steel road bike with mechanical shifting and rim brakes that can fit 28s.
>>
If steel is so good, why do you feel the need for 28 mm tyres? NGMI also sage
>>
>>1684751
it's still a dentist bike.
>>
>>1684755
28s are very wide tires and having the option available to use very wide tires is nice.
>>
>>1684751
For me, it's the peepee poopoo with mechanical *ppPPppffffrrrttt* and poopies that can fit peepees.
>>
For me, it's a steel touring bike with 2x10 and cantilevers that can fit 35s.
>>
>>1684751
>that can fit 28s
why not 32s
>>
>>1684836
Seems excessive at that point. If you need 32s just ride your cyclocross bike.
>>
>>1684751
For me, its a carbon forked, aluminum framed bike with 25s with a modern touring saddle.
>>
>>1684840
so, why aren't 28s excessive? it seems like a very arbitrary cut off.
>>
>>1684843
28s are excessive for most road riding, but having clearance for them is nice. If you need tires any larger you should ride your cyclocross bike.
>>
>>1684846
you've clearly never come across chipseal or macadam if you think 28s are too much for the road. I might go insofar as to say you don't own a bicycle, let alone ride.
>>
>>1684853
I have ridden upon many miles of damaged chipseal in my life, which is why having clearance for 28s on a road bike is nice.
>>
>>1684855
it's the barest minimum. 25s are a very rough ride and anything less just isn't acceptable.
>t. fat
I'm 65kg.
>>
>>1684858
Sorry, sport. I know it sure can be tough to ride bad roads on 25s or 28s, but you'll make it. Imagine if they did a race on tires that size and rode on ancient cobblestone streets...
>>
>>1684751
for me its what ever steel frame happens to be in the trash that day
>>1684843
>arbitrary cut off
that's just as wide as most calipers can handle
>>1684810
>that bike but with center pull brakes
>>
>>1684855
>chip seal

Is this a poor southern thing or something? We get asphault here in the midwest. We also get glassphault, which is alright but a little worse on the tires.
>>
>>1684911
It's a bongistan thing too
>>
>>1684927
im just sick of these fuckass "gravel" roads in the country that are just limestone dust. Nothing nicer than a nice tarmac asphault road in the country- it lasts forever. Nothing worse than eating shit into a cloud of limestone dust out here in dry July.

Surely all these gravelbois don't actually enjoy riding on these limestone dust roads are are riding something more challenging and less chokey
>>
>>1684948
Nice blog. And it's spelled "asphalt".
>>
>>1684951
thanks for the spelling correction bike friend. I hope you have a nice ride on your very real bicycle
>>
>>1684955
Why would I ride bikes? I retired from that.
>>
>>1684751
>fizik shit
bike ruined
>>
>>1684751
You would be correct if you also specced downtube shifters
>>
>>1684989
:k
>>
>>1685167
The rider should choose the shifter type that is best suited for their style of riding.

for me it is about effective two-finger braking from the hoods
>>
>>1685322
Which is easily achieved by retrofitting with tektro levers and putting a dual pivot caliper in front
>>
for me its the steel track bike with 0.5mm tires clearance from any point of the bike, 45 degree pursuit sloped top tube and mandatory chainring overlap
>>

For me, it's an alloy gravel bike with mechanical shifting and disc brakes that can fit 47c
>>
For me, it's an alu bike with at least a newer-gen 105 and 25/26 mm tires on 80 psi.
Couldn't give less of a shit about brakes as long as they're half decent.
