Congratulations @KENNETH GUMBS, you are the lucky winner of Van Dessel competition! Exclamation

I like the stability of these bikes on gravel.
I love riding bikes on gravel and any surface really. It's just fun and great exercise.
It's a super great workout!
What I like about gravel bikes is their combination of road and off-road qualities.
I like that I can take it on the trails to bird and not worry about feeling unstable
I like that I could ride this bike anywhere - on mountains or beaches. Great looking, too!
I love riding on gravel because it's extra exercise! Great on my leg workout!
The reviews are great!
Thumbs Up 
I like the idea of it’s durability on less than perfect roads.
I like the stability
I like that they sound stable.
honestly, never having owned a gravel bike.. or seeing one up close.. i have absolutely no idea how to answer this question. i would however love the opportunity to win a gravel bike, which is how i found myself here... lol
I love gravel biking for the change of pace from road biking
I have never had a gravel bike, but I have been on gravel bike trails with a basic mountain bike and was envious of those who had gravel bikes - you can really enjoy dirt trails with full confidence on a gravel bike that you can't enjoy the same way with such gusto with other bikes.
These bikes are well made & very stable. The big plus is that they're fun to ride & enjoy the fresh air! Thank you for this amazing giveaway prize.
I like that they are stable on gravel
