Adam here,

I designed the 58cm SuperSomething more or less around my dimensions. I have mostly been riding a 60CM frame since I built one up last summer, which has been so fun, but since moving to the bay where gravel riding is a little hillier and faster with some more fun road mixed in I have been wanting to get back on a 58CM frame in more of a "fast gravel configuration. This is what I came up with.

The build uses a lot of my favorite parts and some parts that I have been curious about trying out too. The wheelset is an enve G23 carbon wheelset because the way I ride a gravel bike benefits from the added durability of carbon. I also like how this particular wheelset rides because it is nice and flexy.

For the drivetrain I went with tried and true Sram force 11 speed. This stuff shifts great, has all the range I need, is nice and durable and also easy to maintain. What more could you ask for? I also went with my favorite White Industries cranks.

For the cockpit I am running a sample of the new SuperStemThing stem that should finally be available in a few months. I am running a short 50mm stem because I am running a wider, 52cm bar from salsa which I am excited to try because they seem like a really nice bar for the price. I am also running a Titanium seatpost (restock coming soon) and excited to try these G-one gravel tires from Schwalbe.

I wasn't going for lightweight but I'm feeling pretty happy with the complete weighing in at 22.5lbs.

It has been so fun to build up the SuperSomething gravel bikes in all sorts of configurations but it is also fun to see one in the main one that I imagined when it was designed and I can't wait to get it out on the trails!
