So, after 5+ years on my FS Turner Flux, I am ready to go back to HT, but this time I am looking for a carbon HT. I am considering LOOK 986 or Orbea Alma, I noticed not too much posting on these 2 bikes. Anyone outthere who own these 2 bikes?
The new Alma has the worst cable routing I´ve seen. They have fit some awful cable guides that are very, very bad designed.That´s why hey come with Gore Ride On from factory becouse that´s the only way something can slide through it, and even so, there are some sharp turns I don´t even think a smooth operation will be ever possible. Not to mention you´re stuck with Ride On forever. No full length housing possible. Go and have a look, they are as bad as I say.
The older one is another story, and may be able to get a good deal somewhere.
