Orbea, in particular, is a rare beast (at least around here). I’m curious about experiences you may have had with their road bikes. I need a dependable machine but if I’m paying the cost of any of these modern bikes, I also want to eke out every bit of free speed AND comfort that I can.

Your thoughts?
Mikes Bikes in the Bay Area is unloading a bunch of demo 2019 Venge Pros w Ultegra Di2 and CL50s....for $3k I think... Check Pink Bike.

Barring something like that, or the Dogma F10 disc Di2 demos from Excel, the Orbea looks like a great choice. I rode one of their OMR level frames a couple years ago and was very impressed with ride and build quality.
