Help! Two more gravel bikes go head to head...

Hi all, you've been great in helping me narrow down my bike options.

I think it's down to these two now. Which would you go with?

Or

-Wiler looks cool, has hyro brakes and through axel just on front.
-Orro has mech brakes, but has a carbon fork, through axel front and rear and 105 groupset...

As always, thanks!

    Personally I'd go with the wilier purely because it's hydraulic and tiagra isn't far from 105 shifting and weight wise.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    It's increasingly difficult to find disc wheels with QR, so future replacements are going to be hard to find if you go with the Wilier. Finding a used set with the right mix of TA and QR might be even harder.
