- Orbea Alma
Thinking of getting an XC 29er HT through cycle2work scheme and looking at the Orbea Alma H30 @ TredzPosted 2 days ago
Anyone have one or one of the higher spec models (same geo)?
It ticks a lot of boxes, I have a more burly FS for playing about on, but after something for fast off road miles
I’m also tempted to put a 100mm dropper on (27.2 seatpost) if anyone has done that on one of these or a similar bike?squirrelkingMember
Also interested in the H30 for exactly the same reasons, the local has an M50 in which is same geometry, hoping to take it for a spin before I commit. PF92 is a concern but I can probably live with it, liking the SLX 12 drive train over the usual Eagle or Deore 2×10 offerings.
What colour are you looking at? I like the blue and grey ones but the Spirit (thinking of upgrades) is only available in the mint or black and the frames are colours/mixed finishes not available on the configurator.Posted 2 days agospawnofyorkshireSubscriber
I’m probably veering towards black as some of the bits I have already will match better when I put them on.Posted 21 hours ago
The Orbea grabs me more than the similar Scott or Cannondale, better spec and similar geometry. My only concern is the seatpost and dropper potential. I know the world cup xc racers use the carbon version of the frame with a dropper so I just need to find the right one.
Will be interested to hear your views if you get the test ride
