Orbea Avant Disc Jenson Ultegra Bike
Plan out the route. Make it long, include some dirt, some gravel, and that old beat up highway. Make it memorable and challenging. Bring good friends, some coffee money, and your Jenson Custom Orbea Avant. The Avant is an extraordinary bike, versatile and capable of a wide range of uses. Ride it just as it comes and customize it to your hearts content in the future. The frames is both disc and rim brake capable, and offers standard or electronic internal cable routing.
Orbea doesn't slap a name on a generic frame and call it a day. They go through great lengths and pay close attention to every detail until they are 100% happy with a frames fit and performance. Orbea achieves this by scrutinizing the material and shaping of the tubesets and basing geometry/sizing on the stack and reach of a frame, two of the most important measurements to consider for bike fit. These will determine the relationship of two vital touch points - pedals and handlebars.
Jenson USA has supplied the Orbea Avant with a drivetrain dominated by Shimano Ultegra 11-speed components and is highlighted with a set of mechanical disc brakes. Together they will take command of your Avant and provide smooth, shifting and controlled braking. Ultegra 6800 wheelset is wrapped in 25c Vittoria Zafiro rubber and Orbea branded components, along with a Selle Italia saddle make up a solid cockpit. Break out the maps and keep pedaling.

-Customer service: I had a couple of questions as I was considering purchasing from Jenson USA so I called their customer service line. The people I spoke to were not some call center operators. These gentlemen knew their products and services and were very helpful in answering all of my questions. I was speaking to a cyclist, not someone that was just paid to answer a phone.
-Price adjustment: Another reviewer marked the bike down a star because it went on sale shortly after his purchase. Jenson USA has a 30 day price protection policy. This bike was marked down $100 two days after I ordered it and all it took as a 2 minute phone call to one of their excellent customer service reps to have that $100 refunded back to my card.
-Arrival: The bike was so carefully packed that even after making its way to Japan through both the US Postal System and the military postal system that there wasn't a single ding or scratch. There was even a note in the box with the assembly check list and a picture of the guy who built it as well as the guy that QC'd his work. Simply excellent! It took me about 30 minutes to unpack it and put it together.
Being in Toronto, I may have been able to find a bike with similar specs for about the same price, but it would have taken a bit of shopping around. Generally, bikes sold around here in this price range are Giant, Trek and Specialized bikes and I wanted to get something a bit different that would stand out. This bike does that, for sure.
I agree with the other reviewer about the wheel specs being different between the picture and what is stated, and the RX31 wheels are not light, but I was looking for something that could take a bit more punishment rather that going light (could stand to lose a few pounds anyway) so I am happy with the purchase. In the spring I will probably be looking to fit this bike with 700x30mm t
