The tool you need to pull those RF Aeffect cranks off. Can't go wrong with the quality or the price really. Your LBS will have this on hand obviously but it's nice to have in the garage and save yourself a trip to the bike shop when you need to tighten the BB, clean the drivetrain, etc.

I love the ESI grips but I found the extra chunky ones to be...extra chunky. Almost too chunky! I'd check out the ESI "chunky" ones if you want those hands to be a little closer to the bars. Otherwise I love these grips. Be forewarned - if you ride ~3x per week you will burn through these in a season.

Purchased this bike so I had something to haul the kiddo around with while he lounges in his Thule Chariot. It just so happens that this thing is really fun to ride. Love adventuring with it - she rides well on road, amazing well on dirt road and pretty damn good on smooth singletrack. Compliance is great - you never lose fillings on bumps, etc. but it still climbs well and has some rigidity. This is a great all-round "skinny tire quiver killer". For someone that spends most of their time on the MTB but wants something to use when the trails get soggy or there is adventure to be had on a high alpine dirt road, this is your bike. Just be careful with the sizing - Ridley's run very big. I'm 6'1", have a 34" inseam, bought a large, and still needed to downsize the stem.

Purchased this for my wife and she is a big fan thus far -
___________________________________________________
I’ve never had a gravel grinder before, so I don’t have a lot to compare to, but I can say that I really really love this bike. It feels light and it rides super smoothly. Performs great on the road, but also stable and fast on gravel. Not that color matters a ton, but I have gotten lots of compliments on the blue color, too. I needed to get a shorter stem because the one that came with the bike made me too stretched-out, but I have a pretty short torso. Bottom line: really awesome bike!
