Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've ridden Orbea road bikes for years and figured I'd try their 29er to replace an aging mountain bike. The Alma H70 is a killer deal especially from Backcountry. I was impressed with the entry-level (Shimano) componentry - it offers crisp, reliable and accurate shifting. The remote lock-out fork is a great feature and I've even used it on the road in foul weather - the 29s roll really well and yet are precise enough for lots of off-road xc riding. I haven't found a miss yet - I'm actually thinking of buying a second one...for my wife, of course - but I'd ride it mostly...
