    There are bikes like the Salsa Fargo that have dropbars and 29x3in tires that would probably be the best bet for something like that.

    There are different versions There are some that are basically cyclocross bikes with slacker geometry and then there are some real beasts out there. Gravel bike tires vary from .5 inches to 3 inches! It is extremely varied.

    If it goes on gravel, then it is a gravel bike.

    Here's my gravel bike that I mentioned earlier 20200122_133716.jpg

    I just can't get comfortable on dropbars any more, so I've ordered new bars and parts to convert it to single speed. Then, I'll get out and hit the gravel.

    I don't think those would work. I have some issues with my neck which requires me to be in a more upright position than I can get on drops.

    I was looking for a multi use bike to do some longer rides and some mild trails. I used to mtb in the 90s all rigid. Current mtb are crazy. for me builds wind up getting carried away on $$$ so I just bought new. Got a good discount through a partnership kind of thing. I wanted green but when I was ready to buy only red was available. Not the end of the world.

    That really looks road-esque. Is it just a road bike with bigger tires?

    Gravel bikes seem to run the spectrum from road bikes with wide tires to mountain bikes wirh dropbars

    Check out the Nitto Albatross, Dove, or North Roads, or Soma Oxford, and probably others—they're similar styles of bar. I have an Albatross on my the USAAF bike and I love them.


    I wouldn't call it a gravel bike, but I use my road bike on gravel roads. I just put on the largest tires that would fit (28 and I have to deflate them to get them past the brakes) and ride it.
