I'm very limited with my budget.
Which is around 1350 euro.

My 1st choice is :


Myroon 29" Performance Carbon/Hardtail
RockShox Judy silv 29"-TK-Rem-soloair-T,15×100
KTM Line CC29" Mavic XC421
Schwalbe Rapid Rob 57-622
Shimano Deore XT M8000-11
Shimano Deore XT M8000 shadow plus
Shimano Deore XT M8000-11
Shimano M7000-11 11-46
Shimano Deore XT M8000-B1 32T
Shimano MT800-PA / BB-Unit Pressfit
Shimano M365
KTM Comp HB-FB21L, flat 9°, 720
KTM Comp SP-DC1K 27,2/400

Link for the picture :

Price is exactly 1350 euro.

My 2nd choice is :

ORBEA ALMA 29 M30 BLK 2019

Orbea Alma Carbon OMP 2018 Boost Press Fit Taper
RockShox Reba RL 100 Air QR15x110 Boost
Acros Alloy 1-1/8 - 1-1/2" Integrated
Race Face Ride
Orbea OC-II Flat 720mm
Shimano MT501 BR500 Hydraulic Disc
SRAM Stylo CNC Eagle Dub Boost 34t
SRAM NX PG-1230 Eagle 11-50t 12-Speed
SRAM NX Eagle 12-Speed
Mach1 Klixx 23c Tubeless Ready
Maxxis Ikon 2.20" FB 60 TPI Dual
Selle Royal Seta Sport
Race Face Ride 27.2x375mm


Price is 1820 euro.

So is the extra 500 euro for:
- better fork (Reba and not Judy)
- tubeless ready tires
- more beautiful frame design (obviously)

worth it?

I'm a poor student so I'll need 2 more months of saving the extra 500 euro (which means 2 months of not riding).

Or should I buy the KTM and use the new earned money for upgrading it?

Thanks in advance for all your answers.

Since you are on a budget and the KTM isn't bad, that's the route I'd go. Use the funds you save for upgrades.

It really all comes down to spending. Personally, I'd definitely go with the Orbea (better fork is a big deal plus I've always gone with SRAM drivetrain after a few Shimano issues that made me write them off).

Good luck man

I'd go for the KTM, super solid build and you save yourself some money for upgrades (tires, drivetrain, dropper maybe?) either way good luck! Both are very nice bikes.
