    I road this a bunch this past year. The Giant is basically the same configuration except it’s heavier, wider tires, fewer gears, and battery assisted to 20mph. I found myself cruising around 20mph a lot. Very comfortable ride. But my new Specialized will be even faster at assisted to 28mph.

    My “older” Giant EBike:

    They’re certainly getting harder to identify as assisted!

    Nice ride Steve.

    Another ... as in it's happened before? Popping a spoke should be a very infrequent event unless the wheel wasn't properly built to begin with (former bike mechanic/ace wheel builder here!). I've built feathery road wheels that held like a rock for the strongest of riders and off-road wheels that could take the punishment of many hard races.

    Where were you riding at the time and what caused it to happen?

    And this was the inspiration...

    But I wanted a Gravel bike, a commuter, and it had to be titanium. So this is what we came up with.

    Hoping the tires, pedals, and rear calliper arrive soon. I wanna ride it!

    Being a biker everyday that I'm off - as I work 12 hour days - I have to say I've never seen that bicyle before. What is it?

    It's a Lynskey Nantucket built with a Gravel-oriented groupo, wheels and (soon) tires.

    What did you pick for tires? Both sets I have for my cross bike are near dead - two sets because I travel with road and gravel rubber, just in case.
