      Looks great, Ghost.

      No new parts on any of my bikes in the last few months, but I've been riding my Canyon Grail for more than my trail bike, mainly because I can hop on and go rather than haul my trail bike far as nearby trails have been mostly closed due to rain this spring.

      I did end up having to take a 2 week break and ride easy as I ended up overtrained over the last 3 months and started to get burned on riding. Been back now and it's as fun as ever.

      Covid-19 pandemic pricing on a blinged out Slate!
      ....because everyone needs 2 gravel bikes


      Gravel dropper post is pretty sweet.
      When the speeds get rowdy, it makes a difference

      Good deal.


      I ended up with this, along with a set of EA90 SL/GP5000 TL road wheels:



      It now has a different crank/BB (GRX 810).

      Timely bump... Just started the build for the new steed maybe 2 days ago

      Last one is the current ride. Not bad at all. Hoping to get a COVID premium when I sell it. Yep my garage is a warzone... Deal with it

      Oh wow I had the same one. 2005 right?

      As a result we actually got a bottle of Gerolsteiner mineral water just to check it out. Next thing I know Ms. ghost is insisting we keep some around.
