Boom! We've got a very tasty Orbea Avant M20 Team Disc to be won in one of our best competitions ever courtesy of those nice people at Cycle Surgery. Those of you that follow these things closely will know we've given bikes away before but we've never backed that up with 50 yes FIFTY runners up prizes to soften the blow of not winning the star prize… well,soften the blow for 50 of you at least.
So let's have a look at our treasure trove of prizes starting with the star the Orbea Avant M20 Team Disc. Orbea were one of the first big brands to start putting disc brakes on higher end endurance bikes when they launched the first generation of the Avant - we were well impressed back in 2014 when we reviewed that earlier version, with Dave Arthur going so far as to ask if it's combination of disc brakes, increased tyre clearances and hidden mudguard mounts meant the Avant was 'the future of road bikes?' The 2017 model build on that being both lighter and stronger and now coming with thru axles front and rear to eliminate any disc brake induced flex. We haven't reviewed the 2017 version but it has scored well with some of our rivals. It's defo a bike worth having and the icing on the cake is that up until the Cycle Surgery sale started it would have cost you £2,399 to own one.
If you don't win the bike you could still win one of two Gore Bike Wear Shakedry cycling jackets worth £230 each, some Oakley Jawbreaker Prizm sunglasses worth £175, loads of GT85 lube, plus Elite bottle cage and bottle sets, and some Ass Savers too.
Here's the list of prizes in full:
Orbea Avant M20 Team Disc 2017 RRP: £2399 (currently £1599 at Cycle Surgery)
Orbea have a track record for producing great bikes and the Avant M20 Team Disc looks the part. We reviewed its predecessor, the Avant M10D back in 2014 and gave it 8/10 with our man Dave Arthur saying "It offers great performance in a wide range of situations and conditions that makes you wonder if this is how all road bikes will look one day with appealing versatility" but we've not been able to get this version in for review yet.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
