Giant Revolt 2

Revolt 2 (2014) - Bikes | Giant Bicycles | United States

I'm really like this bike. It has places for rack and mudguards, it's a "gravel grinde" . I don't have any info about this category, nor this bike, but it seems it's a decent all-purpose bike. Of course the question is how good is the frame for packaged tours. It is commercialized that it can handle month long tours.... well ok but I miss real reviews or oppinions. I'm a newbie for touring and I could use this bike as a commuter, going to the college, but from a tour perspective I need your help. On the other hand I really don't know what it is? Is it a cyclocross bike?

it has one set of eyelets front and back... the rear set is just difficult to see...

as for loaded touring... no clue, prob similar to a lot of other CX bikes, likely would work well for light touring but that can be said of many bikes... I like the idea of gravel grinders "road bikes" for the real world...

Any better suggestions around 1000 usd? There's the Ridgeback Tour 2013 Touring Bike | Evans Cycles or cross-trekking bikes are better for what I looking for? Really don't want to give up the horn handlebars... they are so comfortable.
