Looking at my first gravel bike. Kinda have it narrowed down to these two.

Thoughts?

Since you guys were of no help at all, I bought a Scott Addict Gravel.

Very nice! I hope you got a steep discount for the mismatched tires.

Ha!!! I did get it at a pretty good price. Bikes are being heavily discounted these days.

Mismatched tires are my doing. It came with 700 x 45 Schwalbe G-One Bite which only measure out at 43. I had one 700 x 45 WTB riddler laying aorund that measures out at 700 x 47 so I put it on. The matching Riddler for the frront is coming this week. Plus I'm not a fan of tan sidewalls.

The G-One Bites will be going on the market soon.

I like both black and tan wall on that bike maybe with a slight nod to tan wall ?

Id be tempted to go with 700 x 45 Conti Terra Speed tan walls

I have some 700 x 400 terra speed right now and it's an awesome tire. While I do have another WTB riddler coming to match the front, I'm contemplating picking up a 700 x 45 terra trail for the front and 700 x 45 terra speed for the back.

That is a nice bike! I was up in PA this past December at a Scott Shop that my son and I have purchased from in the past. They have some serious markdowns on mountain bikes right now, and still cannot sell these. Yet, they only had one speedster think the 30. I was just amazed at how packed that store was with bikes, but no customers.....unlike a few years ago. They are going to be discounting bikes for a while.
