I have been a road bike and commuter for the past 25 years. Last time I road mountain bikes it was when the Cannondale Pepperoni fork was considered suspension . Anyways I want to get back into mountain biking since trees don't deliberately try to run you over . I live in NC and don't plan on jumping off any cliffs or doing any racing but looking for just a great do it all mountain bike that I can also put some miles on. I have a shop here that has a Yeti SB4.5 that I can demo but not sure about locating a Orbea. I know the travel is different on these two bikes and the Orbea is closer in comparison to the Yeti SB5.5 but both Yeti and the LBS recommended the SB4.5 for what i was looking for. I have read reviews on the Orbea and it sounds like a great all around mountain bike with a little more travel and about $1,400 less. just wanted to see if anyone has a recommendation of one over the other. Thanks in advance.
