You're the type of rider who loves speed regardless of the terrain. You want to go fast no matter the surface and want a bike that prioritizes speed over utility.
Sure, gravel is a bit more carefree than the skinny-tired road race crowd, but you know that you're not going to sign up for any week-long bike packing slogs spent under 10mph for 8 hours a day. You want to go fast and race; pin a number on and go after the Grasshopper Adventure series or race your buddies on your favorite fire roads and trails.
You want a gravel bike that isn't a hardtail mountain bike with a drop handlebar and know picking the right tool for the job means you'll have more fun. If you want to ride real mountain bike trails, you'll ride a real mountain bike; for gravel, you want a bike that is quick and responsive and closer relative to your road bike than your 150mm travel trail MTB.
