“The Salsa Stormchaser brings gears, suspension, and a dropper post to our stalwart gravel bike for added capability.
“This Stormchaser laughs at chunky, rutted, washboard gravel roads, thanks to our Class 5 VRS (Vibration Reduction System) and a RockShox Rudy XPLR 40 mm fork. The 90mm dropper post encourages bold descents. The Shimano GRX 1 x 11 drivetrain helps you find your cadence on climbs and flats.
“It all adds up to a hard-charging Stormchaser that lets you carry more speed with less fatigue on challenging backroads and rugged trails.
“And it’s still a bad-weather brawler: the 6066-T6 alloy frame is tough, the frame and fork will clear mud-caked tires, and our Alternator dropouts still offer the single-speed option.
“Stormchaser GRX SUS: Ride no matter what.”
We shall do our best. Should we ever get hold of one.

With a decently wide-range drivetrain, a suspension fork (albeit one with a 90s-tastic 40mm of travel) and a dropper seatpost, it would be fun/illuminating to pitch the Salsa Stormchaser against a modern XC mountain bike.
Just to see what it reveals about gravel bikes. And mountain bikes for that matter.
