Niner has announced it too will have a gravel bike. Interesting coming from a mountain bike only company. I guess calling it a gravel bike kind of pigeon holes it as it can really do anything...as most bikes like it can.
Of course I'm still lusting after the Soulcraft Groundskeeper. Which truly makes sense looking at my garage full of Salsa bikes. Salsa started out in Petaluma, CA. When purchased by QBP it was moved to MN, leaving behind some of the welders, etc. who started up Soulcraft. I mean, I almost really "need" one to complete the circle!
