I don't know if it counts, but I saw a steel frame mountain bike with a carbon fork that had 700c cyclocross tires and wheels. It had a corncob cassette and bmx bars.
Ok, so I wouldn't exactly call it a graveller, but I love it! Details? More pics? Build thread?
Can I try it?

Matti is gathering ideas. And maybe parts. Anyone think that time trials bars turned back would make usable drop bars?
It could work but you’re definitely limiting your available hand positions, brake levers, and brake lever placement compared to a dirt drop bar. (Usually bullhorns like these use a bar end brake lever, that would eliminate the option of bar end shifters... possibly a cyclocross style brake lever mounted up further where the drop transitions upward).
Oh well, it was just a thought. The guy is asking too much for my tastes anyway.
Amazing rig. I’d like to convert an old schwinn collegiate into a gravel bike.
Is this a customized frame or how difficult is the rear disc upgrade?
Exploring the dirt (gravel?) roads of Cumberland Island National Seashore on the Surly Pugsley.
The fat tires of the Pugsley may have been a little overkill despite the roads being sandy, but it was comfortable and I did do a little beach riding.
Isn't it a bit... unnecessary?

This is what started the gravel trend on this fourm!

I can't imagine riding it. If you're looking for a short cockpit and an upright ride with a 90 degree sweep back, I'd think a northroad type handlebar would be a better choice. Or maybe a stache bar for a more "aggressive" position.

Yup. Definitely looks dumb. Maybe if they were flipped upside down
Still a beaut, MF-er!
That looks good and comfortable. I was trying to reply to grant's post with the backwards bullhorns
