Awesome bike! What saddlebag is that and are you happy with the tubeless gravelkings?

That’s just a lezyne waterproof bag tied down with tie wraps.

The Gravel Kings tubeless didn’t hold up for long. I think I flatted them after 500km and used them with a inner tube after that. They’re clearly not made to use tubeless, because my Schwalbe Pro ones where holding up way longer.

One of the nicest Colossal builds I've seen. Great selections.

thanks! I still have to find a colossal as sexy as mine :D. I guess most Colossal riders buy the standard build.

Any idea what it weighs? I'm not a weight weenie, but I'm thinking of building one of these up as a "light bike" alternative to my Salsa Vaya and I'm wondering if it will actually be that much lighter.

I have really no idea.. i don't really care either, it's just an awesome ride, wouldn't change anything (although i'm switching to tubeless because i have A LOT of flats on those vittorias)
