If you're still looking Keith then I just saw these on Facebook Marketplace, look decent for Gravel riding, and tan walls too...

Guys Ive been absent here for quite a few years.....so forgive me if this post is not allowed - I am breaking up one of my sleds - Brodie Torque frame and forks has already sold, but I am not sure how to price the rest of the parts - specifically a Shimano Deore DX group-set in decent / good used condition.........planning to sell the wheels separately......any idea of a fair price - a pal is going to put the dirty bits through the parts washer so they should scrub up nice.... Any thoughts? ( The set originally came off a Breezer Storm that came across from Canada )

front and rear mechs
chain- set
pedals
cantilever brakes
levers & shifters

The tyres shown above for gravel riding are Specialised Hemispheres. I highly recommend these and currently have set fitted to a bike. Flak jacket ones are good but for bullet proof puncture protection the Armadillo version with bead to bead puncture protection are impressive.
