I once made the mistake of dropping on to say hi to Ben at Argonaut and going for a ride around Bend with him... he absolutely ripped my legs off!! Thankfully the by-product of all that fast riding are some truly amazing bikes that come out of the Argonaut workshop. 

Unlike many builders, Argonaut waited a long time to release their first gravel bike...and for good reasons since technical standards like flat mount brakes and thru axle sizes had yet to settle down somewhat and reach an industry consensus.

The result is the stunning looking GR2 launched earlier this year.

What I love most about this bike is that it approaches the gravel bike design from the angle of a pure roadie. This is a slammed, aggressive machine that wouldn't look out of place in a road race peloton with some deep section road wheels on it. But with clearance for 37c WTB Riddler tires this thing is ideally suited to ripping up the fire roads of Oregon. 

Back in the day we'd just ride gravel on a road bike with no need for a specific bike... do we really need specific bikes for gravel? Maybe, or maybe not.. but if you have the luxury of having a bike like this in your stable you're certainly going to going a lot faster.
