Another bike category that is calling my name to buy! Gravel Bike. So with all the hype why not just ride a fully rigid Hardtail mountain bike? You have the ability for a wide range of tire sizes and it seems all the gravel guys want bigger tires. You can run a suspension fork if you like and lock it out, you can ride it easily on single track, gravel and pavement. Perhaps I am missing something, educate me please.
