It’s About the Bike: Jason’s AdventureX

Welcome to a new feature I’m calling “It’s About the Bike”  (Ed. Note: Sorry about the lack of creative.)  In this section we feature folks and their bikes.  I’ll be taking submissions for “It’s About the Bike” if anyone is interested.  I’m looking for bikes that have been modified and accesorized some, or built up from scratch, no show room fresh stock bikes but something unique.

Our first entry is Jason’s AdventureX, which is my name for his bike which he just called his adventure bike.  He built up this bike for gravel rides and races which are becoming more popular around his part of the country.  The frame is a Nashbar X cyclocross frame which is a low cost aluminum cyclocross frame, a carbon fork, and some of the widest tires he could stuff into the frame.  This bike could probably handle just about anything you threw at it and be pretty quick.

Compact drop bars felt like they'd give a good position for rough terrain.
