JT Nebekerwrote a review of Evil Bikes The Chamois Hagar GRX Gravel Bike on March 10, 2020
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I took this bike out on a gravel adventure around the north side of the Salt Lake in Utah with a buddy.... and I had a blast! The Chamois Hagar is dialed in on the gravel roads!
The geometry is great for those long descents on sweeping gravel grades as well as those inclines that slowly rise up to the next pass. The long wheelbase, as well as the added dropper post, give you a lot of confidence on the descents even on the roughest of roads. And you don't feel too slacked-out for long arduous climbs. It felt a little "mountain bike-y" when you needed it, and a little "road" when you needed it as well.
The GRX drivetrain is really nice and the 1x system really makes it. The less moving parts, the better! Also, the dropper is key. Some of the more technical and steeper descents are made a whole hell of a lot easier when you can drop your butt down.
Really like the Easton EA70 AX for the handlebar. The extra degree of flare really makes for a lot of different positions to swap between on those long days in the saddle.
I'm pretty much 6 feet tall. I was on a medium with the seat post up pretty high. I would definitely go with large. I just felt a little cramped on the medium and made it work for the day, but large is the choice for me.
Have fun on the gravel!
