Love the Niner Benny. There are some drop bar gravel/trail riders I see around here on fire roads and some of the milder trails. They all seem to be young and/or super fit.
I have a loop I do from home which has a lot of climbing and some dirt sections with sand and loose rocks. I've been doing it on my Gunnar which has similar geometry to a cross bike. A gravel bike would be great for that.
