What kind of BB height (not drop) do people consider normal/rideable for a gravel bike?

Especially as the height can vary given tyre or wheel size choices, and pedal strike likelihood can also be affected by crank length.

You'll probably get quite a variety of responses to this question because it varies a lot by tire size and even same tire different tire supplier.

With that said though, check out the screenshot of the Noble GX3. My theoretical BB height is 280mm. This is based around a Clement/Donnelly Xplor MSO 40C tire.
