I'm currently looking at buying my first road bike, currently on a hybrid. Will be used mainly for commuting and longer rides. Currently considering the Orbea Avant H40: https://www.sigmasports.com/item/Orbea/Avant-H40-Road-Bike-2020
And the Triban RC520 105: https://www.decathlon.co.uk/triban-rc-520-disc-road-bike-navy-105-id_855...
The Triban seems like it's more bike for the money out of the box, but the Orbea feels like it could be a better bike in the long run with a few upgrades over time.
Has anyone ridden either of these bikes and can give any pros / cons please. If not, based on the specs, which would you go for and why? Also, are there any other bikes around this price point you'd recommend over these two? TIA
