  • Show me your Dirty Reiver bike setup…
  • Here’s mine (technically it’s for the Dirty One Thirty). Now ready after just finishing the final pre-event fettle.

    This is my first attempt at anything like this so interested to see if there’s anything obvious I’ve missed?

    Crosslight Pro6.
    TRP Spyres
    1×11 (38 – 11/36).
    Panaracer Gravelking SK 35mm tubeless.
    Garmin 800, battery should last?
    Tubes, tools, waterproof, buff, survival blanket all in a large Topeak wedge drybag.
    Food, gilet, phone in jersey pockets
    Whistle will be round neck. It’s tied to the handlebars so I don’t forget it!

    Just looks like it’s me an you Jamie

    And me!! Can never work out how to post photos, but will be on a kinesis cross light 5T with a nano on the front and something a bit narrower on the rear (tried a nano in the rear but it fouls the stays so will have to have a look in the garage and find a different rear tyre). Looking forward to it.

    I did it last year on a MTB good day out but those Gravel bikers had loads of puntures I would stock up on tubes. I must have seen about 200 punctures, have fun it is a good route

    Down the long route but may have to switch to short as i’ve done s*d all riding this year after 9000 miles last, hoping that somewhere in the first few miles my legs remember what to do!

    Same as ‘cross season really…though I’m on the cheapo clincher wheels rather than carbon tubs, and there’s a bottle cage on there now, and a saddle bag with a couple of spare tubes/tyre levers/extra chammy cream/that sort of stuff, oh and some lights too, as per the required kit list ๐Ÿ™‚

    A CXer with 40C tyres that have some grip and 2xwhatever and some tubes, a bit of food, phone (but you’ll get no signal) a rain jersey and a grin is all you need.

    Just enjoy the day out, it’s a spectacular place to be on a bike.

    Hope there is some more that’s doing it on mtb??? don’t wanna be the only one

    Johnny- there are at least a few more rigid singlespeed folks playing as well as me, so there will be other mountain bikes there just rigid, one geared ones, being ridden up the hills slowly, to the soundtrack of creaking knees and slurping hipflasks. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Last year I’d say 60-40 split CXer to MTB.

    Can’t remember seeing any SSers though, but it’s a good course for SS as there are only a couple of really steep sections, but some of the long 18% + climbs may make you hurl chunks..
    it’s a sort of uppy-downy rolly-polly chunky-firetraily ride, if that makes sense ..

    but some of the long 18% + climbs

    long ok, 18% sort of ok, long and 18% arggghh!!

    IIRC there were only a couple of them, and to be honest they were all in stunning scenery ๐Ÿ˜€

    MrCrushrider

    Just what I’m used to. Wore it for a recent 50miler and it was fine

    So I am going for my Santa Cruz Stigmata running:

    Lauf forks

    Front Tyre WTB Nano 40c
    Rear Tyre WTB Riddler 37c

    cx bike with flared drops, schwalbe g-one 38s tubeless, 2×11 with 32 out the back, nice comfy seat and as much kit hanging off the bike as possible. hoping to avoid any kind of backpack this year.

    Out of interest, what kind of times are people aiming for?

    I’m with you there! Never felt less confident going into an event than i have this one, part of me knows i’ve done longer events, but hardly been on bike in last few months due to family restrictions and part of me is already thinking “well i could switch to the short route and take in the scenery” which is not the attitude to start with!!

    Scud, that’s why i’m signed on the 130km

    PS those whose done it, im thinking of 2.1 rocket ron front and 2.1 thunderburt rear, whats your thoughts?
    Or I have a pair of new 1.9 renegades?

    Alloy GT Grade with Kenda Happy Medium Pro 35c tyres set up tubeless.
    50/34 rings with a 11-speed 12-32 cassette out back.
    Debating whether to use a Camelbak or go with a small top tube bag and a couple of Alpkit Stem Cells that I have… hmm….

    Oh, and I’ve never ridden further than about 80 miles before, so I’m guessing it’s going to be “emotional” ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’ll be on a Specialized AWOL Comp set up with Crossmax SLRs, tubeless s-works renegades and a 32t xx1 crankset instead of the stock 38t giving me 32/42. Top tube bag for gels etc and and saddlebag for everything else.

    Currently debating my choice of footwear – winter boots? shoes? with overshoes? Decisions..

    Am I doing it wrong?

    IvanDobski – I am having the same debate about footwear.

    What is everyone else thinking? Winter, Shoe, or overshoes awell?

    Can you all give my mate Bryan a few words of encouragement if you see him out on the course….?!

    He hasn’t got much riding in, so will probably be struggling round.

    He’ll be on a turquoise Salsa Warbird with Lauf fork, some carbon wheels and 42C tyres with skin sidewalls. The tart.

    I won’t be “encouraging” him i’ll be pushing him off that bike and pedalling the fastest my stumpy legs have carried me!

    My winterboots are miserable after a few hours above freezing.

    Just being a punter and doing the 130 I am preparing myself to be in awe at the array of STW gods that will no doubt be doing their stuff on Saturday. What’s the correct form for being in the presence of STW omnipotence – how awestruck should one be or will hands and knees grovelling suffice.

    No need, the amount of weight i’ve gained recently i have my own gravity to pull you in..
