Both of these frames can be had for well under $2k. Anyone with experience riding one or both of these bikes? The bike will be used mostly for training, inclement weather, and some gravel rides. No racing.

Which model year zolder are you looking at because the 2018 and earlier disc zolder is pretty much a fuji altamira cx, if you look at the design and geo it's the same. I know they changed the frame for 2019 but I haven't seen the specs for the new one. I cant say anything bad about the earlier frame, I have 3 of them(fuji disc altamira) 2 built as cx bikes and one as a road/gravel bike, for a cx bike it handles very well as a road/gravel bike. Currently I have mine setup with road gearing and 32mm gravelking(slick) and it is very fast, super smooth and stable the only thing is it wont handle some of the big gravel tires because it really isnt designed to run 40-42mm tires.

Im looking at the 2019 Zolder pro with thru-axle and internal cable routing.

Have you found the specs for 2019 Zolder pro? I am curious about geometry and tire clearance.
