I'm also considering building a gravel bike as training bike in addition to my road bike. I'm stuck betweent Diverge or the Palta2. Have you riden other gravel bikes? How does the Palta compare in riding & comfort.

Nice. How did you like the Schwalbe RS?

What gravel roads are these? Looks like some nice areas for NJ. I got a bit tired of the Colombia Trail.
oh its fast compare the cinturato H that I have or maybe because of the upgraded wheelset too 303s. cornering on lose gravel descent is pretty grippy too.

this is Bedminster .. the MEcca of gravel roads in northern NJ lol come by one of the Saturday we do a 33 mile that has about 18.6 miles of gravel.
Okay. LMK ahead of time location and time. I’ll join.
msg you my number .

Loup,
This was my only Gravel bike, my initial interest was on a 3t exploro and Cervelo Aspero when I was looking for a bike last year.
but I was looking fo something in expensive just incase if im not going to enjoy it, i didnt have to spend a lot. and when the new palta came out
and the price is with in my budget to build I jump on it and was very happy with the ride. also to let you know I used to have a Basso Diamante and currently have
the Basso Diamante SV.

I'm currently really into it, buying a Palta2 too. The Basso steam is quite bulky and heavy ~260g acc. to the website. Also the minimum Basso stem lengh is 80mm...
With the internal cable routing, do you think its possible to make another stem soultion work. E.g. Extralite Stem with ~65g :P

the problem is the HS cover and spacer which has the same shape as the basso stem. also the Palta HS spacers are made of Alloy not plastic or carbon.

Can you please tell me what screw length you used for the Sram Flatmount Calipers?
Did you use 160mm rotors? If yes: are there adapters needed?

Can you please describe what happened with the fork? I see the carbon looks damaged. Is that from factory?

This part. Totally trashed. A life biohazard. If this comes from basso factory, I would be pissed off. I heard horrible stories from recent palta 2 owners.
