Just curious on opinions about this deal as a first time MTB. I have experience with road cycling but am looking to pick up MTBing. I like speed but want to be able to handle fairly challenging trails. This is at the top of my price range but thought it looked like a good deal. Thoughts?
I have an Orbea Alma (2016) as my hardtail. It’s an awesome bike. I’ve won XC races 3 times on it.
Be aware, though, that they tend to run on the large side. I’m 5′ 10″, and size large is almost TOO large. Just watch the standover height, make sure it’s good for you, and buy it. Then ride the hell out of it. You’ll really enjoy it.
Thanks for the responses. I have done a fair bit of searching for local used bikes but just have not been comfortable with the deals or really found anything i liked. I think I have decided to go with a new bike at this point and think I’m leaning towards the orbea alma. Now I just need to convince my wife its a good investment! Thanks for the help!
