Nope, you missed the point again.
These bikes use a geometry with a high front and short reach. The drop bars used are typically Salsa Woodchippers, but there are other similar bends which have flared drops which are intended to be ridden at the normal height of flat bars.
Actually, the Trek 920 has a Bontrager Race VR-C handlebar, which like most Bontrager drops, are not flared. It is the same handlebars as on the venerable Trek 520, which, BTW is now also available with disc brakes for $200 more than the canti version.
The Trek website (http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/city/touring/920/920/) surmises what the bike is built for: "When the pavement ends, 920 is just getting started. This rugged adventure tourer sports 29er wheels and an off-road drivetrain, giving you endless room to roam. Don’t let a little bit of gravel dissuade you. 920 is equipped to handle whatever lies on or off the beaten path, while carrying the cargo that matters most."
Salsa, on the Fargo page, says it even better; "The Fargo is our drop-bar, off-road adventure bike. A unique creature with a special set of skills, it is always willing to fulfill the most imaginative endeavor. It has developed a cult status as an off-road touring and bikepacking machine, and fuels our passion for long days in the saddle in distant lands."
I'm just happy as a clam the thing is finally actually on the market!
