MAGAland = rural southern US. Though I'm only about 10 miles from a liberal arts university town.
I called the bike shop a little after they opened this morning to see if they had a 56cm Checkpoint ALR 4 in stock, they did not. I then inquired if it was possible to set up an actual test ride on gravel, since that is what I predominently ride on. Negative. You can only test ride around the parking lot. So I told her I would seek a different option. There's no way I'm spending 2K on a gravel bike if I can't even test it on gravel.
