My touring bike works just fine if I want to do the drop bar “gravel” thing, thank you very much. It worked well enough for 700 miles of dirt roads and tow paths around Lake Erie.

If the roads are rougher, my mountain bikes does a fine job of handling those.

Some people are just angry / unhappy all the time and need to put down others and things they don't own or care about. I guess it makes them feel better about themselves..

I ride about 8,000-9,000 miles a year (mostly on tarmac with some light gravel riding) and my gravel bike does just fine for both. It's fast enough on the road and can handle light gravel with ease. I guess just let the dude hate and be angry if it makes him feel better..

You've already posted five other vague questions, don't you have enough information for your marketing study by now?

Choose:
1 for 'Yes'
2 for 'No'
3 for 'I like gazpacho'
4 for 'dumpster vodka is the best'
5 for 'Vitalyte is better than Hammer Nutrition'
6 for 'Taco Bell threads'

A flat bar fitness bike that I've converted to a 1x11 gravel / touring type bike with drop bars and discs and a Dahon folding bike.

On another topic entirely, there have been a lot of sock puppets showing up lately, like recurring nightmares.

like "DownCountry" on the MTB side? LOL

good grief, we've got Hardtails, Cross-country, Down country, trail bikes, enduro, then finally downhill. I think there are some "Extreme " (or is it Xtreme ?) hardtails now too with 160mm forks and slack angles -- its a bit much Granted, a 19lb hardtail probably deserves its own category, and so do DH bikes, -- but the rest are just mountain bikes - pick the travel number you want or need and move on

(says the guy with both a Downcountry AND an Enduro bike )

We know you Tour "A LOT", but some people simply like having more bikes and more riding styles.
