I wanted a Stigmata when I was shopping for a gravel bike. But the price, IMO, is wayyy out of line when compared to other bikes with same specs. The Stigmata is a nice bike for sure though! I ended up purchasing The Kona Libre and added carbon Roval wheels with DT hubs and some other carbon bits on the bike. I am a 100% mountain bike rider. UNTIL, I biught my Libre. "Gravel" riding is just like the people said above... adventure, speed, efficiency, long days or short quick ones. With the larger drivetrain (front chainring in a 1x is 48 tooth) I can go wayyyy faster, wayyy further efficiently than any MTB. Not even a questions anymore. I now ride gravel rides once a week.  It has made my MTB riding even better.
