    Orbea Orca Price?

    Does anyone know the price of the new Orbea Orca road frame? I can't seem to find it listed anywhere.

    Orbea Orca

    I am from Gibraltar, Europe and I am already riding an Orbea Orca. I am told I am one of the first people to own this bike as I put in my order back in October 4th. I received the frame/forks on 22nd December!!!!!

    I bought it as a frame and forks with FSA aheadset for 1,600 euros. This is roughly 2,015.68 USD. at today's rate.

    To this I have added Rolf Prima Vigor wheels, Continental 3000 tyres, Deda Synapsi bars, USE Alien Titanium seatpost, full Shimano Dura Ace 10-speed groupset and Saddleco Flow saddle.

    The bike is superb and I hope it will serve me well in the sprint duathlons and triathlons I compete in. It weighs around 7.5 kg fully loaded with pedals on and 2 carbon fibre bottle holders. The size of my frame is 51cm as stated on their web site geometry chart. (www.orbea.com).

    I think the frame is the best 'bang for bucks' carbon frame out there....costing a lot less than the Trek Madone for example and probably just as aerodynamic....even lighter perhaps, I am not sure. The fact that Iban Mayo and not Lance rides Orbeas keeps the asking price down I'm sure!

    I will be glad to answer any questions or send pics if anyone is interested!

    I have got to say that this is one pretty piece of plastic.

    go to Orbea's website and e-mail them about the price, they will tell you. I was in a similar situation with another one of their bikes and just asked.

    I own a 2003 XLR8R frame with Record and I am ordering a 2004 Orca Jelly Belly Team bike also. I guess getting divorced isn't so bad after all. I don't need to explain the ligic of having both. There isn't any!
