    I have an Avant as well and love it. I use it as my rain bike, but have ridden three centuries on it when there have been scattered showers. I love the bike. Enjoy it!

    I think, if at all possible, it's best to test ride first. I have typically done this with my road bikes, though I did buy an Orbea Avant M30D without test riding it :-)
