    Look good ! Does it have a hanger and cable mounts to run a rear derailleur if needed ?

    Sure does - its a "blank canvas" of a bike - plenty of upgrade options

    Reckon the Arise uses Paragon Machine Works sliding drop outs. If yes (and I can help figure that out) then there is a tonne of adaptability there. You can even go 142 mm thru axle with a direct mount Shimano derailleur.

    Had a couple of short rides yesterday and today. Such a smooth sailing bike. Will definitely get my legs stronger!

    Completely agree. 90% of the gravel focussed rides in my area are faster and more fun of the mtb than the CX rig ... But there is something fun about the drop bars and skinny tyres.


    you can still have 28/32/35 mm tyres or whatever for excitement and speed
    scarey but cool
