After hiding in the "buying-stock-bikes"-corner for several years, I finally took the plunge and got myself a frame to build a bike just the way I want it to:
It's been over a year of talking to Litespeed regarding what frame would suit me the best (a big thank you to Steve Dunn for the patience) I finally ordered a T5 Gravel, size M/L:

Looking forward to seeing the bike built up. I dealt with Steve recently when I got my T2. Really nice guy to deal with.

since you have the Qpower... drop the vector3 and get Xpedo M-force 8 Ti and save 100g.
you are not going to want look cleats for a true gravel bike when it comes time to hike a bike
