Readers’ Rig: There are many carbon gravel bikes out there on the trails, but we’ve not seen so many in titanium, and what a better example than a frame made by Litespeed. Mitch in Winston-Salem has an Litespeed Ultimate equipped with SRAM, Hunt, fizik and TRP. Name: Mitch HopkinsLocation: Winston-Salem, NC (USA)Frame: Litespeed Ultimate Gravel – Size MediumGroup: SRAM 11 Speed ETAPHandlebar/Stem: Argon 18 – Integrated Stem/Bar – 110 x 42Wheels: Hunt 50 (Challenger Gravel Grinder-Tubeless) – Zipp 303S (Schwalbe Pro One-Tubeless)Pedals: Ultegra SPDSaddle: Fizik Antares – Braided Carbon RailsOther: TRP HY/RD disc brakes (These were purchased because my existing ETAP shifters are for rim brakes) – These actually work very well.Weight: 18.2lbs (8.3kg) (Pedals, cages and Wahoo).When did you buy it?I bought this as a frameset from Litespeed in April 2020.What made you choose this bike?I have had many Litespeed bicycles over the years and I wanted to get a bike that was more versatile than just a road bike. The frame and fork can fit 650b x 2.0 or 700c x 45. When purchasing the bike you also have many options, paint, Etched Logos, T47 upgrade, etc. The crew at Litespeed are super helpful in getting exactly what you want. Thanks Chris. I also used to live in Chattanooga, TN, where they are made, so I have a soft spot for the Litespeed brand as well.Have you done any modifications/additions to it?I built it to my specifications with parts from another bike so it’s pretty much custom.How many…
