Traildonkey build of the day: Interdonkey.
This bike is heading to the SRAM booth at Interbike for display next week, but we don’t just build display bikes, we ride the pants off of them then display them.
This bike spent the better part of a week bagging 12,000-13,000ft gravel peaks before heading for the expo circuit for a bit of rest.
Purpose built for steep, rough, high mountain exploring, gearing is a wide range Sram Force 1x drivetrain with a 1x 34t Eagle chainring up front mated to a 10-42 in the rear. The new Zipp 303 650b rims paired with WTB Byway tires ensured comfort and traction on the worst roads and trails. Zipp SL carbon seatpost, bar, and stem are very light, tough yet compliant enough to add just a touch of tuned comfort to the build. This is easily one of the most nimble, capable Traildonkeys ever to leave The Lab.
