Orbea Lanza 29er XTR

I assume this is a pretty rad deal...What do you guys think? I just bought a Giant Fastroad for the road and am looking for something that I can take offroad and on some okay trails.

Is this a quality bike? Price seems pretty insane.

If it fits you and you want a racy hardtail, yes that is a decent deal. It has the Shimano floppy lever shifters that most people hate and you'd want a new saddle. But the bike doesn't seem to have been used at all.

That's an *interesting* built

Those shifters / brakes gotta go, get a new carbon post and seat and you are good to go

If the fork doesn't need maintenance, you could do worse. The geometry is more XC than you'll see these days even in the race hardtails.

It's not a crazy deal. A counterpoint:

New, carbon, better drivetrain. When you start adding up what you'll spend on off-road accessories, a few hundred more on the bike isn't such a big difference.

I'm guessing most people haven't actually used dual control shifters. One of my used bikes came with set and they were fine and mine were older than crap. I finally replaced them when they were just flat worn out. I prefer trigger shifters but I wouldn't replace a set of XTR shifters/brakes just to get triggers.

What is more odd is a bike with all those XTR parts and that seat. Probably owned by a guy with a ton of money that thought it would be cool to mtn bike and then stuck it in his garage after riding it 3 times. Looks like a great price to me.
