In prep for Grinduro and some future bike packing I've Been busy gravelify my Kona as much as its 'all-road' status will allow. I bought it with the intention of being my mudguarded commuter but its turning out to be a capable allrounder despite the 35mm tyre limit. Any how I have my Genesis 29er for anything really rough which I'm still considering trying out some rigid forks on for longer stuff and a dropper post is much needed but thats another project. So far added a 36-11 cassette, long cage derailleur, flared bars, out front mount and some place holder secondhand 33mm cx tyres (lucky its actually been pretty muddy). New saddle and tyres en-route. Have done a quite a few 40 miler gravel routes with some seriously steep stuff including a 1.3 mile climb, feels pretty novel riding it on what is essentially a road/cx bike.
