Giant revolt

Run through the search engine and found some info but I thought I would see if there were any new opinions on this bike. I'm looking at getting one as a commuter and a gravel bike.
Thanks
Mike

Revolt 1 M/L
I've had mine for about 6 weeks and love it.
I read the reviews and it delivers on everything .
So comfortable and versatile.

They are from Planet Bike.
Really quick and easy to mount and remove with rubber straps.
I zip-tie them on for the winter.

Thanks for all the opinions. I decided to get the revolt. Mostly because my LBS can get me a good deal on one.
Thx

A little late to the party, but I picked up a Revolt 1 M this past summer and have thoroughly enjoyed it.

I ended up not getting the revolt. I decide to build my own gravel grinder out of my mountain bike instead. Probably a mistake but what the hell its been fun specing out what I want.
Thanks for all your advice

Ok, so now after almost a year......still like it? Anything to change or wish for? Can I also ask how tall you are for a m/l fit? I'm thinking about this bike but the sizing is a bit confusing to me.

I'm 5'10" with a 29" inseam. I have the revolt n the m/l size and is very comfortable. I looked at the Anyroad in my appropriate size and I felt more cramped on that bike than I do the revolt. The best thing to do is to find one and take it for a test ride. I hope this helps.

I'm 5' 11" with a 34" inseam.
I waffled between the L and M\L as I've always preferred larger frames (57-60cm)
I'm really happy with the M\L and the fit I have is very comfortable.
I currently ride this bike more than any of my other bikes and love it.
The lower end wheels and components are adequate but could be upgraded.

Thanks for the info. I think I am going to have to do some test rides. Between the Anyroad, Revolt, and Toughroad models, there's quite a few decent choices all within a few hundred of each other.

Just bough a used 2014 Giant Revolt 2. A little beat up and neglected but the frame is very good. Got it cheap but had to put out a small fortune to fix up the brakes, wheels and general tune-up. Rode it over loose gravel, bumpy single track and regular street roads, yes it did good. Sweet bike, very versatile and comfy. Almost as good as my new 2016 Specialized Diverge A1 but the Revolt has better handling on dirt/gravel road. Next is to add fatter or knobby tires for more serious off roading.
