Cory Wallace – past winner of the BC Bike Race – is joining us for a fall double header racing both gravel and race! He is currently in the Okanagan exploring the terrain and you can follow his stories on Instagram at @wallacesworld. We asked him about his bike setup:
For the Gravel event I’ll be running the Kona Libre with a 2×11 Shimano GRX Di2 drivetrain. Gearing will be 31-48 on the front and 11-34 on the rear. I’ll likely run the FOX Rad suspension fork with 40 mm of suspension. For wheels I’ll have a Shimano wheelset with Maxxis Tires. Think I’ll go with the Maxxis Rambler 40c front and rear, both with Silkshield protection. I’ll also run cushcore in the rear for extra flat protection.
My bike will have a WTB Silverado Saddle. I use Squirt tire sealant with bead locks and Squirt Long Lasting Dry chain lube
