Owning one of each is the answer, but I must admit that it's fun to hit mild singletrack on my gravel bikepacking bike from time to time. Plowing through rock gardens and launching over small tabletop jumps with drop bars is exhilarating in its own way. Adding custom packs, riding several hundred miles of dirt and gravel, and camping all along the way is also exhilarating in a hundred different ways. My ultimate goal is to ride from Washington DC to Georgia song the TransVA and TransWNC routes -- which includes a ton of gravel and a healthy dose of Pisgah singletrack. I'm fairly confident that a gravel bike is the right tool for that job, as a loaded trail bike would likely be a nightmare on hundreds of miles of doubletrack and gravel. Is anyone here suggesting that attempting to tackle Pisgah with drop bars wouldn't be exhilarating af?

I have a pair of 2020 SRAM XO1 Carbon Dub 175mm crank arms on my Transition Spur that I would like to trade for 170mm XO1 or XX1 arms. I'm willing to cross-ship and even throw in a few dollars on top of the trade for slightly used XX1 arms or brand new XO1. Full disclosure: They each have a tiny scuff mark at the ends that happened before I installed protectors, but they're in otherwise excellent condition. I would like the 170mm versions to be in similar condition or better. Photos available upon request.
