radroad, I suspect somebody, somewhere told Trek and Specialized that a niche product like a gravel bike needs to be CHEAP. So their gravel bikes are built to a price point . . . a cheap price point. (They're also embarrassingly heavy.) Road bikes need to be lighter and they can charge more for a road bike . . . so they do. The road bikes get the features that add price to a bike.
