So narrowed my search down to the carbon trek checkpoint or a jamis renegade. Not looking for a gravel race bike. Just a fun efficient comfortable gravel dirt road back roads bike. Don't want some to slack like the salsa vaya etc. Some of the bike mag reviews describe the checkpoint as be aggressive like the trek boone. Any thoughts or experience with this. I want something I can ride 3 or 4 hours and 50 plus miles comfortably. Thx
Curious as to why the Salsa Cutthroat or Specialized Diverge did make the cut?
