Entry Level Touring/Gravel Bike (Under $1000)

Looking to purchase my first nice bike, I've most of my life but have always picked up bikes from the garbage, garage sales, police auctions, or the Swap-o-rama in Alsip. I've never bought one new or spent over $180 on a bike before, but now is the time. I will ride the majority of the time on the road while doing the occasional bike packing/gravel rides. My budget is $1000 and I have been looking at gravel bikes from Fuji's, Salsa, and Jamis ....Any help would be appreciated. See More

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakhalil5888@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless
Stella.
