Anyone using this bike as a road bike also?

I swapped the wheelset from Trek Domane over to my Addict Gravel and went for a spin. Made me wonder if I need my Domane anymore.

As currently Addict Gravel 30 is my only bike (waiting for the new road bike), I use it also on the road. Works perfectly. When swapping the wheels, but even with gravel wheels works OK. Have Tufo Thundero HD tyres, and they are axcellent.

As I ride mostly steep short climbs with a lot of standing pedaling, the only thing holding it back, is the front end of the bike. Handlebar and stem. It is somehow "heavy" (low stiffness probably). If you change these as well, you have a proper race road bike.

I've been using my as my winter trainer and it's worked really well, another mate has done the same.
The geo works surprisingly well on road and doesn't feel too sluggish to steer. It's a stiff frame though, it's not uncomfortable but when dropping down to 32mm tyres (from 44mm) this becomes much more apparent.

I have not noticed this on hill climbs.

Your cockpit it top!
I was refering more to Gravel 30 that has RR 2.0 handlebar and stem. I assume that even RR 1.5 woulb be much much better. And naturally better wheels.
I had similar experiace with Giants TCR basic handlebar and stem. When going to better alu versions, it was way better feel in the front when standing pedaling.

I'm somewhat disappointed in Scotts proprietary stem and spacers. I do like hiding the cables but they should have did it in a fashion like the Trek Domane. At least with that bike you can buy different stems to try out or flip it around. The proprietary Scott stem only comes in a few different lengths and they are all -6 degrees.

Is anyone using the Creston IC x handlebars with a mechanical setup?

I'm thinking of upgrading, the documentation says it supports it and the cable routing looks fairly smooth, but would be keen to hear if anyone has first-hand experience regardling shifting quality and ease of installation.

Stem lengths range from 70-120 so no lack of options and the spacers offer a large range of stack height options. Bars themselves are great - good but not crazy flare for the drops and do a good job damping vibrations.

The available stems are -6 degrees. I wish they offered a +6 degree stem.

They should be supplied with the frameset, think 160's are installed as a default on the full builds.
One thing you might want to look out for is that there are different derailleur hangers for Shimano and SRAM.

I will go for the 1-speed new Sram Force crankset 40t (wide)
