Orbea Alma M51 Hardtail Mountain Bike (Anthracite Glitter/Gloss Black) (XL)
I Couldn't be happier with my purchase! This is the first bike that I've bought online and will admit that it was an agonizing decision. But I just couldn't find this bike and this deal at my LBS.
The process through performance couldn't have been better or easier. Shipping was super fast, bike was ordered on a Friday afternoon and arrived the following Wednesday morning. Shipping was also free. The bike came pre-assembled and I had it together within an hour.
I've been riding the bike now for about a week and it's been fantastic. Would highly recommend and while this review is less about the bike and more about the experience of buying through performance, I hope this helps someone that might be on the fence like I was.
Also for what it's worth, I'm 6'4 with 34-in inseam and the xl frame fits well. The seat post is adjusted to its max height. Someone taller may need a longer seatpost. Cheers!
