Seeking your personal experiences with Orbea ebikes

More specifically, i am looking for input before buying their road bike Gain model.

Any Orbea experiences appreciated.

I'm thinking Al frame, 105 components. Or 10spd Tiagra
Model D30 or D40 both have same motor + battery.
Mahle motor hub with a 36V 6.9A 248Wh battery
Range extender up to 450Wh (available for extra $$$)
Hydraulic disc brakes

TIA

Love the Gain

I have had a Gain for 2 years and 18,000 miles. Love it. It is the most similar to riding a non ebike of any I have ridden. I own both front hub drive and mid drive ebikes. I ride the Gain the most.
The only downside was the distance I could get from a full battery charge. Solved that with a Range Extender battery.
The 105 Groupset works flawlessly. I have noticed no excessive chain or cassette wear. At 15,000 miles had to replace brake pads.

Bought the 2020 Gain M20i road bike. Carbon frame, Di2 Ultegra group. Close-out pricing on Orbea size 60cm electric road/gravel bikes at Jensonusa.com both 1X and 2X. Quantities of 1 or 2.


Pridedog thanks for the input.
