Calling Cannondale crackandfail invalidates pretty much everything you say.

Especially when it comes to Salsa who can't even make a fork correctly.

Hunt is a generic Chinese hub so it's not comparable to the Hope in the slightest. For a gravel wheelset go for the Pro4 vs RS4.

Waheela pricing is so deceptive. Sure it's $700 but with no fork. Want a fork it jumps up to $1000. Who buys a gravel frame with no fork? It's not a mountain bike.
