I just want the option to tear up some trails. and take a far different path. It is lighter than my novara. I might even try a cx race sometime.The TRP HYRDs can be an issue in cold CX conditions, so I know a lot of people who opt for full mechanical if they can go with full hydraulic.
SRAM Apex as a groupset is pretty durable, but a bit on the heavy side- especially the crank. At that price point, it's about average.
Through axles are definitely a plus.
Aluminum frames are my preferred material for durability. My early/late season-rain-travel-commuter road bike is an aluminum Storck. The wider tires will take the buzz off the road, and at 'cross pressures you won't notice. It will be a bit heavier than most carbon bikes, but a lot probably can be attributed to components (seatpost, bars, stem, crank...).
It really depends on what you will use the bike for. It's a solid package, though.
