Oooh 26" gravel tires, someone has been reading my diary! Those panaracers look FAT!
Love the Trek, I've got something similar up my sleeve. I'm still in the dark about 1x. What is the derailleur, how many gears, how many teeth on the crank?
They are seriously awesome. I’d been riding on Panaracer Pasela 1.75s and they weren’t bad but I wanted something more versatile and plush. I have this bike set up super ghetto. It’s 1x10 with a 11-42 cassette and a 38 tooth chainring in the front. The derailleur is stock (yes. Stock!) with a Wolftooth road link extender to help it clear the big cog in the back and it’s all shifted by a Sunrace friction thumb shifter. This thing is my favorite thing to ride right now. It’s so much fun. And fast as heck!

To be honest, that's what I thought, looks like good old Shimano STX, but how the heck does it hit all those gears? That's rad.
Thanks I thought it was rad that it worked too! I had some dope purple anodized jockey wheels from an old bike that I threw on it just for retro-points. So here’s some up close pictures of the tires as well as wheel dimensions:






Here’s a shot of the derailleur clearing the rear cog:



And to keep with the spirit of the thread here it is on another bridge:
