Would like to hear from Deadwood (drop bar) riders on your experience with the bike. Satisfied? This would be my primary gravel rider. Not looking for a racy ride, just a comfortable all day ride. I reside in Iowa.  Thanks for your thoughts.

Great bike, and I believe that design became the basis for the current Fargo.  I haven't ridden one, but my questions for using it on gravel would be: 1) How high would the cranks be if you ran smaller tires, say size 40's, instead of the stock 29+ tires.  2) Gearing.  The stock rings would make it a great climber, but would you be satisfied with the gear range for the rest of your gravel riding.

Good luck!
