Jon and Dave Arthur from our sister site road.cc took in a mixed loop around the road, bridleways and byways with two 3T Exploro bikes, one with ENVE wheels shod with fat slick 650b tyres and the other with knobbly 700c rubber to try and find out just who gravel bikes are for, what they're good at and how you should set yours up.
