I have spent the last 2-3 days trying to get all the info I can on gravel grinding bikes. Like handyhannah and others on this forum I have my eye on some eye candy. It's not the question of whether I am going to buy a gravel grinding bike or not, It's what kind of gravel grinding bike I am going to buy.

Of also interest is a ride in the Ozark mts. on Sept. 8-10

Pig Tail Gravel grinding. Sure looks like a blast to me and although I thought I would love to do cyclocross at one point in my life I think this looks like a blast.

Anybody else on here done any gravel grinding races/rides?

Any input is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Zman

Kind of sucks at work lately as my store was the only Lowes store to be shut down in PA. On the + side they are paying us a 6 week bonus pay for staying on to close the store. Changing my Roker over to 2x Shimano.

Oh Zman. Sorry to hear that you will soon be mandated to leave your job to spend more time riding bike.
Will you transfer to another store or look for a job close by ortake winter off?

Everybody was offered another job at another Lowes. I have already started my new job at the different store. It's a hr. drive one way so now I will be working a 11 hr. day with the 2 hrs. travel time. Seem like a closer knit group of workers. It's about double the volume in sales of my old store. I was the only person full time in Tools at my old store. There will be 2 full time people at my new store along with lots of part time help.

I am getting a 6 week bonus for staying until the store released me from the old store. No eye candy in the works right now as I want to pay down some bills and retire in 2 years. This will really help in that aspect. It will be a big time adjustment for sure. I am not a morning person unless it is going to a bike race somewhere. Go figure 13-15 minutes before and now a hr. Also my concept of time is really bad. Before I could drive a lettle bit faster or wasn't too much of a problem now yes.

Life moves on
