    Sonder dial dropper routing is dumb.

    It raise my eyebrow too – however I guess it goes under BB and then up? Not sure if this is better/worse for routing, other than it surely will fill the frame with more water?

    Only available in 29er, our test set are laced to i9 Hydra hubs and come in at a ‘kitchen-scale-confirmed’ weight of 1,668g 9901g rear, 667g front), with valves and tape.

    That’s a heavy wheel!

    Loads of hardtails use the same method for dropper routing. On-one Scandal is the same (and more than similar in many other ways to the Sonder! Same factory, similar tubing, different geo?) .

    i confirm the saddle is very gravel comfortable. the tape while also gravel comfortable… don’t get it wet as it takes a week to dry……

    @teethgrinder – thanks for pointing that out! (now fixed) I can confirm that the wheel does not weigh nearly 10kg, and is actually a very respectable 901g!

    That saddle’s just what I need to complement my gravel-specific socks and gravel-specific energy bars.

    I’m gonna get myself into the dropper lever business. Markup on those bastids must be immense!

    @tuboflard I’ve disappointed enough people in my life, so I don’t want you on that list! Map added 🙂

    Know what would make a gravel bike more comfortable to ride?
    Suspension and bigger tyres, maybe add some knobs on them and a flat handlebar while you’re at it!
    Wait…
