My Singular Gryphon with Midge bars is a great bike for riding on the road.
I rode it around Belgium last summer with Flow EX rims on XT hubs running tubeless Ardent 2.25 at 50-60 psi (yep, true story and I didn't die!), and I also rode it to work every day through the preceding year.
The comfort on the road is high, probably due to big tyres and a good amount of seat tube; the grip when cornering is phenomenal, it felt as though knee down would be possible!
Could have done with a higher gear range for the road but it was set up as a mountain bike using Middleburn Uno. I now have several cassettes with worn top two gears and the rest looking pretty new.
