Giant Revolt Bike Line--Any Owners?

It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like : "Unbound Gravel".

Giant Revolt Bike Line--Any Owners?

My LBS has me looking at the Giant Revolt 1 and Revolt 2 bikes he has. Impressive. I also like the new models of the Seek. Even the model with the 8-speed internal hub turns my crank.

Any owners out there who can offer feedback on their Revolt?

My LBS is high on the Anyroad. They think the Revolt is a bit too aggressive.

I bought a Revolt 1 and I'm quite happy with it. I also looked at the Anyroad and the Specialized AWOL, but preferred the Revolt. I wanted something comfortable to ride longer distances and still rack capable. Giant advertises the Anyroad as rack capable, but it doesn't have braze-on's on the seat stays limiting the type of rack without an adapter or some other one off solution. The AWOL's a really nice bike, but between the two I found the Revolt more comfortable.

Revolt seems to fill a gap between Anyroad and TCX which is harder to define. Seems like a good bike, a few aesthetic and functional things kept me from looking at it. I actually find the TCX to be quite comfortable and can still take a rack and fenders...
