This will be the most useless review you ever read. Sorry. I just rode for the 4th time ever on an Orbea Occam Carbon. I think it's this one:
Here is my pic today:
My first two times were on an Orbea alloy 29er. Then I got my own bike- Specialized Hardrock I now refer to as "The Pogo Stick".
Buddy is a sales distributor for Orbea and has had the demo van for the Central Florida area.
This was my 1st full suspension ride.
We rode the 49th St Nayl's Trail: http://omba.org/index.php/Trail-Maps.html
This was an awesome "swoopy" trail with a few steep drops, some roots here and there, but overall, lots of quick nice paths. Did just under 22 miles.
I noticed the difference in rear suspension RIGHT AWAY.
Night and Day - HT vs FS
The gear allowed me to have more fun with less effort required- and my ass didn't kill me at the end of the ride.
I'm 195lbs and we set it up pretty good initially. It was SO nice not to have to raise my butt over roots, etc!
Overall control was fantastic. The brakes were great.
The bike allowed a newbie like me to push limits safely and comfortably.
If anyone has Orbea questions feel free to post and I'll forward them to my buddy.
I'll get to ride it again- or pick from other bikes in the coming few weeks.
Told you the review would be useless. Sorry.
