I am looking to get a gravel bike and pretty new to the drop bar bike world. Never owned a road bike and have owned one other gravel bike but it was a 59 cm with a long top tube and short head tube. Felt too stretched out so I never was able to get real comfortable on it but I really enjoyed riding it.
My budget is around 3500. I mainly ride gravel roads, fire lanes and blacktop. Not planning on riding any single track with it. I think I would rather be on my Tallboy for any real trail riding. Would like something comfortable enough to ride some 40-60 mile rides.
Pretty much looking for a do all bike with main focus on gravel road riding.
I am 6'1 so I am looking at a size large or 58 cm.
