neuer Crosser, erster Praxistest
Alu Minautix went gravel riding.
April 17, 2021
Today the last stainless screws arrived and so I was finally able to finish building the new Crosser. The screws for the adapter for the disc brakes were still missing, otherwise one might have improvised.I slaughtered my "old" Kona Jake the Snake CR 2016 to rebuild it. I had various problems with the Kona right from the start, e.g. the frame was simply not stiff enough for my taste and also a bit too short.An aluminum frame from bike-components is now in use here. The "Flint" gravel frame in size XL. The sloping top tube is not exactly my taste, but I couldn't find anything better with my demands on the frame geometry. The carbon fork comes from Bombtrack and the steering angle is quite flat, as is typical for Gravelt.The first impression on asphalt and gravel is promising. Very smooth and direct. Not quite as lively and agile as the Kona, but extremely stable. I am curious how it goes on.
Send the "hit" 👍🏻
Have fun with the new bike, Andre. 👍
Well then, always have a good trip
Nice bike, ..,bike Packing welcome
at least it looks good. Lots of fun and beautiful kilometers by bike.You drove Gelmeroda today, well, it's almost on the doorstep. I once photographed the church in the dark, if you help a little, you get almost such cool effects as Feininger himself does on the pictures ...
Thank you very much.@hallunke, you could link your Gelmeroda tour here, you made me curious with your photos.

that wasn't a real tour, back then I only drove over briefly in the dark from Bad Sulza, especially because of the photos (and unfortunately by car + was a few years ago, I'd have to look if the photos are still there)
Oh, I understood that as a bike tour.
I don't even know what year that was (but quite a while ago), if I can find anything I'll show you; if not, I could repeat an action like that - by bike
