I know this topic has come up in the past, but looking for opinions on using the 2017 Ogre as a gravel grinder for a 130km event with gravel, paved, double and single track. It has the Moloko bars which have a lot of hand positions, particularly out front which is somewhat aero. Also a fitted bar bag to carry snacks etc. I'm thinking of putting some Mavic Crossmax 29er wheels on and Compass Steilacoom tires to lighten it up, and remove the racks. I'm only going to do 1-2 events per year so I don't want to invest in a new gravel bike.
Thoughts? Am I in for a world of hurt? This would be my gravel event.
