    I did however take her out for a 10min spin this morning and what a ride. Granted I could not breath after but she climbed great and the shifting was very precise and at just under 19lbs it feels like I am riding on air. Here are some pics. I will get better ones once I am able to get out and ride her. I am also waiting for my new pedals to get here.
    Wow, that is such a sweet Bianchi. Congrats.

    If you have more pics please post them.

    That Bianchi is making me drool. I don't normally like th look of carbon bikes but that is sweet! I don't think I would ever get out of the saddle if I had that sweet ride. You think you could loan it to me while you recover? I even promise to give it back.

    Sweet looking bike. I have the same bike, but last year's model. So the top of the top tube is nude carbon. Is the rear triangle too?

    Might as well be underwater because I make less drag than a torpedoE (no aero bars here though)

    Welcome to the world of Orbea. They are beautiful bikes not only in looks, but also to ride.

    I got a 2004 Felt F50 like this one back in May. I'm enjoying it a lot more than the Gary Fisher I've ridden the past few years. So far it has about 500 miles, longest I've ridden is 40. Haven't been able to ride as much as I'd like, and none of my friends ride.
    I got some Ultegra clipless, but I've ordered some Shimano shoes at my LBS.

    I can post real photos if anyone's interested.

    My first road bike, which is becoming more and more of an investment than I originally planned....

    a 1980 Schwinn Traveler 10 speed! (laughs)

    $5 inital investment
    $25 new rubber & bar tape
    $25 brake levers
    $20 cables
    $40 alloy rim set and 6 speed freewheel (not yet added...)



    It will soon be a 12 or 14 speed with the new alloy 27" wheelset I'm purchasing and plan to do my first organized ride on it this weekend or next. More pictures on my website (link in signature). Frame is about 1 size too big for me really, which is preventing me from raising the seat any more, but at the time I wasn't planning on spending another $100+ on the bike.

    from 2002, I think 2002 and 2003 had the best looking paint jobs from Orbea, 2004 and 2005 has been looking kind of plain with the expecption of the Lobular.

    Nice Orbea! Looks like Orbea doesn't make the Lobular without a Carbon rear triangle anymore.

    Here's my latest ride, a 2000 Raleigh R600 frame I built up with parts from another bike I have. I've forgotten how stiff aluminum is after riding steel for so long. Even though it's about 2 pounds heavier than my steel Bianchi, it seemed to climb faster.

    3Rensho or San Resho 1985 (so I've been told). I've had it since 2000 when I adopted it from a coworker.

    new wheels and drivetrain not long ago. I've wanted Phil Wood hubs for twenty years.

    Interesting bike. Can you post a close-up pic of the shifters?

    According to their website...

    The technological innovation places a very strong one-way clutch between each crank arm and the crankshaft. Because of this, PowerCranks™ work exactly like regular cranks when pedaled in a complete circle but they don't work at all if you apply a little back pressure on the upstroke. If either leg ever stops pedaling in a complete circle, even briefly, you get immediate negative feedback as your pedals fall out of synch. This is a simple, but very effective, negative feedback system. Negative feedback systems have been shown to be effective in changing all sorts of unconscious behavior. While isolated pedaling systems have existed in the past, mostly as research tools and recently in an exercycle (Reebok Strength Cycle) none of these can actually be used during actual training, giving enough repetitions to actually change behavior

    um yeah lol thanks Khuon don't you just love marketing speak obviously aimed at the common man

    anyway there's a ratchet/clutch in each crank hence the size. This forces you to actually pull up and kick over with each leg, i.e., no mashing. Some people think they're an overpriced gimmick - I like them though.
