Gravel bike recommendation Diverge alternative

Currently I ride Diverge size 64. I am looking for similar bikes alternatives available in large sizes. What would be your recommendations?

If you specify what you don't like about the Diverge it will help focus the recommendations.

Have you gotten the dealer involved yet? Are you the original owner? Why aren't they covering it? Inquiring minds want to know.

Sorry to hear about the cracked frame, that's not fun. I'd recommend the Roubaix as an alternative, but I'm guessing you'll want to stay away from Specialized.

Apparently Specialized offers 5 year warranty. I am the original owner.
