Dream Bike Build!

I've posted some on the Road Cycling forum about this but thought I'd share my excitement over here as well as I know some folks will never venture over.

This year, my Christmas/Birthday present to myself for the next two years, was to build up a frame I've always wanted, the Orbea Orca. So a week or so ago I found a deal on a 2010 frame and pulled the trigger. The SRAM Red group should arrive this week so hopefully the components will be on next week. I'm still mulling over wheels but as it's getting colder and bad weather is surely around the corner, I'm in no hurry to invest in that upgrade just yet. My current Fulcrum 5's will hold me through the winter.

Some frame pics are here.

Looks NICE. I'd be 1/2 tempted to just put it on the wall and stare at it.... A real piece of art!

That is one sexy-looking frame and fork.

Agreed andgott. I'm almost afraid to get a scratch on it.
