[Deutsch unten] Here's a very nice fillet brazed Big Forest Frameworks gravel bike with a full ENVE build. ENVE's wheels are handmade in the USA and one of the cool things about them is they don't have a rider weight limit like many of the high end carbon rims out there. ENVE is able to mold the spoke holes rather than drill through the fibers, allowing higher spoke tensions and a stronger wheel build. The bike also has the ENVE gravel fork which is a bit longer than a normal road fork, fitting tires to 35mm, but it's not as long as a normal CX fork. So you can do gravel or mixed surface with 30-35mm tires, but if you know you'll only be on pavement you can always run a normal road tire. And a bonus: it also comes with a removable fender! The only fork I know of like it!

Hier gibt es ein sehr schönes fillet brazed Big Forest Frameworks gravel bike, komplett mit ENVE Komponenten aufgebaut. Die Laufräder von ENVE sind handmade in den USA, und eine ihrer coolsten Eigenschaften ist, dass sie keine Gewichtsbeschraenkung fuer den Fahrer haben. ENVE kann die Löcher für die Speichen formen statt zu bohren, dadurch koennen die Laufräder mit einer höheren Speicherspannung gebaut werden. Das Bike hat auch die Gravel fork von ENVE. Die ist etwas länger als eine normale Rennradgabel, aber nicht so lang wie eine typische CX Gabel. 35mm Reifen passen perfect für gravel, aber natürlich kann man auch dünnere Reifen aufziehen, wenn man nur auf der Strasse fahren will. Und ein Bonus: es kommt mit einem abnehmbaren Schutzblech! Die einzige derartige Gabel, die ich kenne!
