    Help buying a new bike... Why Orbea ???

    Iím in the market for a new 29er hardtail. I recently moved and found a lbs that runs the Orbea brand.
    The Orbea Alma H30 looks good and has nice components (1x11, hydraulic brakes, rockshox) but I cant find a lot of info about the Orbea brand. Also, I havenít seen many Orbeas on my local trails.

    My question is: Are Orbeas good bikes ???

    Iíd appreciate your comments and advise on this brand.

    On paper I would definitely go with the Specialized. It's got better deraileurs, and most importantly a lockout on the front shock. The lockout on the front shock will make a big difference when you're not on bumpy stuff, as its a lot more efficient.

    Orbeas are great bikes in my experience. I have had a rallon, my first one, for a little while now. also have a couple yetis transition etc.. blah blah.

    the rallon is a very very good bike!

    would not hesitate to get another one and recommend the brand

    even better that you dont see them everywhere. they havent sold out and are not trying to rule the bike world like special ed, giant, trek, etc.....

    good luck
