Orbea - What model would this be?

Hey all! New here and apologies if posting this on the wrong part of the forum.

I've recently been looking into getting a used bike since my beaten up Trek (not one of their better models) needs a full overhaul. I came across a local seller offering an Orbea for $250. While I'm not familiar with the brand, I've heard it is a solid maker based out of Spain (obviously with a range of affordable/expensive models). No drop handlebars (as shown), but I was wondering where this model fit in their lineup - I couldn't seem to find it. Anyone familiar with this model before I go out to see it for myself? As Orbea is a lesser-known brand (at least to me!) I'm not sure if this is worth checking out.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to attach pictures here, but there is a clear shot in my profile. Thank you for your help!

Welcome to the forums. If you're not familiar with the brand line-up, then knowing the model won't be of any help. The easiest way to get an appreciation of the level of the bicycle is by the tubeset and components. In this case the non-drive photo certainly doesn't help with the latter. I'd call this a modern urban bicycle. Based on the size of the weld fillets, it appears to be an aluminum frame. The non-drive crankarm looks like an inexpensive model. I also see a kickstand plate, which typically indicates entry level. To be sure you should request a drive side photo, brand/models of major components and tubeset information.

Thank you T-Mar! I missed the kickstand, and didn't know how useful a drive side picture would be. Noted!
