Thanx @ifitsfreeitsforme. Back in the day we had BMX, crusiers, MTBs, road bikes and (one of my favorites) cyclocross. I hadn't heard of gravel bikes 'till I got back into bikes. There were some gray areas with MTBs running 1 1/4" Specialized slicks and road/touring bikes w/ 700x32 knobby tires and flat bars - great college commuter bikes and fast on hard pack.
This one here! thanks for this, I can remember key and peel doing a skit where one of them had a hat and riding a bike but the hat was so big it had a seamstress on top sewing another hat LOL...now I seen this ha ha ha !!
