You compare this to the Merida Silex, but geometry wise there are very different on Size Large the Silex has 63mm (2.5") taller stack height for more relax position.  While the Digger the geo is closer to road or CX race bike.  Most "aggressive" gravel bikes, ones that have a dropper seat post with it also come more slack in 70-71 head tube angle.

Does the more traditional road/CX race geomtry hamper the otherwise very aggressive build kit on the Digger?

I am ready to buy this bike but finding it very difficult to find one in stock, especially anywhere that will accept my Cycle2Work voucher. Does anyone know when the availablilty is going to ramp up?
