I m not sure the GB1 and GB2 were a commercial success; i seem rather rare.

if you are handy, may be look for a cadenza which you could convert to drop bar and either keep as 2x9 with a sora mech disc (need road disc caliper) or upgrade to 2x10 tiagra or 1x10 wide range microshift advent X.

the cadenza is 26 rather than 27.5

Ritchey does a breakaway outback but I am not aware of folding gravel bike with large wheel hence my suggestion of building on up yourself. The Cadenza and GB1 (as I said very very rare) have very similar frames; the main differences are the handlebar and the groupset and the tyres.
you could also get a montague navigator and custom build it to gravel type

or a change hybrid and customize it.

How would a 27.5" Cadenza suit you?
