Populo Quest Disc Gravel Bike

Bought this in May 2018 well below MSRP. Heckuva deal. Swapped out several parts, most of which I already had.

58cm 4130 DB Chromoly Steel, TIG welded, disc only

Straight blade Chromoly, Threadless Headset, disc

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
Sugino 170mm 110 BCD crankset, cartridge style BB

MKS with clips/straps. I don't do clipless.

Currently a 1x8; Mix of Shimano/KMC/Sunrace parts. 42t USA Made narrow/wide chainring (very pleased! Awesome product for $28!), 11-34t cassette. I might go to a 11-40t in the future.

Shimano STX-RC 8 speed shifter with its 22.2mm bracket bored out to 23.8mm with a dremel tool; Deore XT rear derailleur.

Super wide Salsa Cowchipper 2 handlebar. OEM stem. Serfas black silicone bar tape.

OEM alloy 27.2 post with Serfas saddle

Tektro 160mm rotors with Avid BB5R disc; Tektro aero levers

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Joytech hi-flange hub; 700x35c Bontrager commuter tire

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
Joytech hi-flange hub; 700x35c Bontrager commuter tire

Tools and water bottle cage.

More Info:
It's a decent bike for the price. Other similar bikes out there are going for big bucks ($800+). For considerably less, I have a decent gravel bike or commuter. It's not the lightest but I can replace some heavy parts over time.

Not a bad frame for a cheapie. I bought one for next to nothing and built it up as a very capable grocery getter. Mines got a 27.2 post though..
