Steel gravel bike is a graduation present from father to son
That is correct.....pretty nice present, I would say. The bike is steel frame with an Enve G-series carbon fork. The whole component group including wheels is Shimano GRX-810. The post, stem and bars are all from Easton. The headset is King and the tires are the ubiquitous WTB-Nano 40's , the choice of almost everyone I know.
The customer was not very specific on the build and let me come up with something that was high performance without breaking the bank. I hope that the end result makes the owner happy after working so hard at his education.
