Welcome back to Gravel Week here on Bike Snob NYC! Sorry I’m late, but I’ve been at the beach all day. “What does that have to do with gravel?,” you may be wondering. Well, a popular user-edited online encyclopedia defines sand as “granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles.” So in that sense, you could say that by lying on the beach all day I was riding on the finest gravel of all.
But I’d be remiss if I didn’t furnish you with your daily installment of gravel-themed content, so it’s with great pleasure that I phone in present you with Bike Snob NYC’s Gravel Deal Of The Week!
This week’s deal comes via a reader who forwarded me this Craigslist ad:
Way back when I started this blog the “pages” of Craigslist were bursting with fixed-gear conversions. Now, 50 years later, savvy entrepreneurs are offering up gravel conversions. Forget horizontal dropouts–now all you need is a pair of flared drop bars and a dream.
America, I salute you.
