Any body own an Orbea Avant?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Any body own an Orbea Avant?

I saw the Orbea Avants on the web and specifically was interested in M10D model that is Full shimano Di-2 along with Shimano BR-R785 Hydraulic Disc brakes. looks like an awesome bike and it has a bit taller headtube which I prefer for longer rides.

Just haven't heard much if anyone has or has ridden one. Yhere isn't any shops that carry Orbea in this area.

I was interested in that same bike. Compared to the Specialized Roubaix and the BMC GF01 Disc, it seems like a good deal. Unfortunately, there are only two dealers in the Bay Area that carry them. The first is moving and doesn't answer their phone and the second is in downtown San Francisco and seems to specialize in mountain bikes.
