Captain “O” (aka KevinE)

Captain “O” (aka Kevin) is one of the co-founders of the Dirty Freehub.

Captain “O” loves bikes: mountain, gravel and road. In the nickname of “Captain O”, the “O” stands for optimism (some times too much optimism).  “It’s always going to flatten out, the weather is always going to clear up” according to him. He loves mapping out new routes and then writing about the good ones!

What He Rides
A Salsa Titanium Warbird. Drivetrain is Shimano Ultegra with front chain rings of 50 / 34.  The rear cassette is 11-32 giving a low gear ratio close to 1 to 1. His wheel set is Stan’s Grail rims with DT Swiss 350  hubs and tubeless Maxxis Rambler tires at 30 / 35 psi (front / rear). Hydraulic disk brakes.

Wahoo Bolt (primary) and Gaia phone app (secondary). Both devices are pre-loaded with the course and tracking route.

His Favorite Route
That would be the Priest Hole gravel route. He loves the big open views.
