$3500 gets you a carbon bike, carbon wheels and Ultrega components.

$4300 get you a Carbon Warroad Ultegra with alloy wheels. They are nuts.

I've actually been looking for an all road solution that I can do centuries on yet also go after gravel. I'm also buying my first bike that will come in at $2+k. I own a Salsa Vaya and it's been bullet proof....too bad the Ti version isn't available any longer and that's why the Warroad is on the radar even at $500 more than I want to pay...

I am seriously impressed by the Giant Revolt Advanced 0 but not enough (yet) to pull out the credit card. Going out today in hopes of test riding a Warroad, the Revolt, Cannondale Topstone, a Giant Defy and, weirdly, an Otso Warrakin (heavy but geez it looks sweet in stainless steel). Never tried 650b so looking forward to it...
