Hey - looking for some advice from people who know more than I. Plan is to switch up the commute to a cycle (10 miles each way over relatively smooth tarmac). Work has signed up with Cycle2Work (the halfords one), which means I can get bikes from either Halfords, Cycle Republic or Tredz. Plan is to commute in all seasons. Less concerned about flat out speed than comfort, but would love to find time to get on the bike outside of the commute too. My questions: What would I lose out on by going for something with slightly more relaxed gravel geometry, if anything? I like the idea of being able to stick some beefier tyres on and head slightly off the beaten path, but not sure how much of this i'd do since primary use would be commuting. Even so, fatter tyres = more comfort, right? There's a couple I've got my eye on and some reasoning behind each, so which of these would you go for if you were in my position? https://www.tredz.co.uk/.Giant-Contend-AR-1-2020-Road-Bike_218379.htm - seems to be a decent mix of everything - 38c tyre clearance https://www.tredz.co.uk/.Giant-Contend-SL-1-Disc-2020-Road-Bike_218383.htm - same as above, but slightly lighter. Tradeoff for this is the smaller tyre clearance, so less ability to throw on some knobblies and go explore. https://www.tredz.co.uk/.Giant-Revolt-0-2020-Gravel-Bike_218251.htm - huge tyre clearance and flared bars - awesome versatility, but would I sacrifice anything significant on the commute if I were to just throw on some thinner road tyres? Wild card options: https://www.tredz.co.uk/.Giant-TCR-Advanced-1-Disc-Nearly-New-L-2019-Road-Bike_222908.htm - Not sure how easy it will be to fit any kind of mud guards (though I'm sure some sort of clip on stuff might help somewhat), how comfy it will be for commuting, how a carbon frame will hold up to all weather commuting or how comfy the ride will be given the smaller tyre clearance, but ultegra groupset is nice and would probably be great fun for a blast at the weekend...
