Seems like a nice bike! Not sure if you ever watch Seth's Bike Hacks, but here are a couple videos about it with some ideas regarding useful upgrades down the line.





He does suggest some brakes which might be helpful for you.

This 'gravel' bike could be the best deal in bikes anywhere, for $248
..a gravel bike isn't a cyclo cross bike or a mtn bike

700c wheel is the same as a 29er in diameter

Really surprised that one of the best budget options is an Ozark Trail model. (In-house Wal-Mart brand.) Then again, one of the best budget options for a tire-inflator (cars and bicycles) is the current one made by Kobalt. (In-house Lowes Hardware brand, ironically made by a 3rd party.)

I want one they sell out fast. Bet that bikes cheaper then a Taylor swift concert and after riding it won't wanna consider. Diging my ear drums out of my skull

Tge riding got my knees hurting again. There has to be a safe over the counter med to help me cope? I know Tylenol isn't safe but I thought aleve was till I read label.. last few nights I just delt with it. But it's pretty bad tonight. I've always been afraid of pills would I be smarter to get that cream you see on tv? If you can answer fast I'd be grateful store closes soon

Glucosamine and chondroitin. Take it every day and don't stop. It takes a while to provide relief. A friend of mine calls them Old Dog pills.
