heres the pic as promised!

This is my first time having a + bike, and it feels fun ,feels like im really tall, like im riding a big bicycle and i like it,it feels like i can roll any obstacle whatever, the rear wheel needs little truing, but idk how to true a wheel ,so i need to bring it to a lbs. for 375 including tax, im happy! last time i bought a brand new bike i was 8, now im 23. trying to save money to buy the meta ht next year or the motobecane gravel x3 for long road/gravel riding.

Sharp-looking bike. Black would have been my color choice. Does the bike seem heavy, or light? What do you think it weighs? Just curious

Awesome. A 30-pound bike to me would be nothing. I'm used to a 38 lb bike, and that feels light to me. This makes me want to buy this bike.

also it says on the paper its novela disc breaks ,but i got an aries instead ,not a big deal ,theres also rubbing on the disc brake when going fast , i read somewhere in the gravity g29ss forum that they changed theirs to bb7 ,so i guess the disc brakes really have to go someday lol

I took it for 16 mile ride, Gravel/Pavement/Packed dirt and its all good, i still have the humming rubbing sound of a disc brake on the rear when going fast or descent,also i have a tight spot on the chain, im guessing it needs adjusting. as for single track ,i am not sure cause the nearest single track here is like 20mile drive , and i still dont have the time to do that lol.

Is the Gravity sticker under or over the clear coat? I would like to take the sticker off when I get it.

Maxd - it is under the clear coat ,so if you want a quick fix to remove/cover it ,im thinking of spraying it flat black , i might do that soon ,it will void the warranty im pretty sure but its not like im gonna send it back ,my rear wheel has a rubbing sound that i thought its from rotor but i think its the freehub ,maybe it just need grease ,but i dont have the tools yet to remove it, not worth to ask for warranty ,,since day 1 i have that sound.
