I just finished my gravel build. I went with the Exploro Style frame, Carbon Gravel Disc wheels 50mm deep with DT 350 hubs and the i420 RR1.0 Aero integrated bar/stem. I am stoked with the result. The bike weighs about 17lbs, built up with an Ultegra hydraulic disc groupset and WTB Raddler tires. It's stiff, feels like I could throw slicks on, jump on the road, and not miss a beat. For gravel, it's on the stiffer side, but that's to be expected when you go full aero. I'm 6'1" 170pds and I picked up a large frame with the 420mm wide, 100mm stem aero bars. I also have short legs and a long torso so that combo works for me. Also, this build is getting a solid 69% "Supernice" vote on GCN's bike vault. I've only been on a couple decent rides, so I will update this a few months down the road with a longer-term review. Thanks Ty!
Very pleased with the DCB frame, fork and wheelset (CX/Gravel/Road Disc with DT swiss 350 hubs). Built to right around 16.5lb with force group, 3T bar and stem and 28c GP5000 tubeless tires. Very little transmitted from the road. Super comfortable and feels as fast as my old Cervelo road bike. I built it as a winter trainer, but enjoying it at least as much as my primary bike. Thanks DCB!
The frame is about as nice as could be expected. It arrived in a reasonable amount of time (just within the quoted limit) and was well packaged. It's strange how you run shifter cable housing through the entire frame, and the grommets provided for the shifter cable access through the frame are terrible, and none are provided to accommodate hydraulic brake line. When I inquired about a better grommet solution, the reply was literally "look on amazon".
