Nashbar Alloy Sora

Looking at getting into gravel riding and don't have a lot to spend. The Nashbar Alloy Sora looks like it has some good components for the price. Thoughts?

Sora is good equipment and 9 speed parts are plentiful and less expensive. Will you miss not having two extra cogs in back? Not at all.

Yeah, I've got 9, 10 and 11 speeds. When I'm on my 9, I never find myself wishing or hunting for more gears.
