For my gravel bike I actually specifically wanted a 2x setup. I wanted my gravel bike to be more a "groadie" than MTB lite. I'm very happy with that decision as I really like the closer spacing of gears, and have found no downside to the 2x setup. If I was riding lots of singletrack on this bike then maybe 1x but prefer to ride my MTB on trails. As it stands I can ride trails to link stuff up or when exploring without much fuss.  The other advantage is that running a "small" ultegra cassette really keeps replacement costs down and I am considering buying a 2nd wheelset to run faster road  wheels and potentially ditch my road bike all together. Horses for courses as they say.
