Budget gravel/CX bike with hydraulic disc brakes

    I was considering buying a second hand bike for the winter for riding on gravel.

    As gravel bikes with hydraulic disc brakes only became common in the last 5/6 years, there doesn’t seem to be as much choice or value in comparison to buying a rim brake road bike.

    The only bike I could find was this Cube bike.

    it comes it Shimano ST-RS505 shifters and Shimano BR-RS505 flat mount brakes.

    RS505 seems to be the cheapest Shimamo hydraulic disc brakes sold at the time.

    What other gravel/CX bikes would have been speced with Shimano RS505?
