I guess March is new bike month. I really liked riding and racing this bike as a mountain bike but the Raleigh Tekoa I picked up last week is just so much better with more advanced features so I decided to convert this one to my drop bar MTB. I wasn’t really happy with how my drop bar Thunder Comp fit and how the 26″ wheel rode so this is a big improvement.
40mm stem was too short or I didn’t give myself enough time to adapt to it. Either way I went back to 60mm like on my previous drop bar MTB and it felt much better. I’ve got three gravel events coming up where I’ll be racing this bike, it’s going to be a lot of fun.
