    Pinarello inspired me to put some vintage up:
    Just got it back from a tune-up including new bartape and shiny-stem. Reminded me of a discussion re: black and silver parts. I think silver parts can look good on some bikes.

    After several months of waiting for all of my components and frame to converge, I present to you the 2012 Orbea Orca Gold dressed in 2012 SRAM Red. Everything is new with the exception of my wheels, pedals and handlebar.







    Here's the predecessor:

    I cant make out what kind of frame that is.....Is that an orbea???? LOL

    hot!


    I like that saddle. The shape looks fairly similar to the arione no? mostly flat (obviously with a cutout). I might have to go down to my LBS and take a closer look. Nicely done, she is beautiful

    No spacers above the stem, Fizik gloss microtex? That matches the blue on the frame, and Shimano shifters not mounted so high up the bars like sprung up rabbit ears... Still HOT.

    Ok took the forums advice and got rid of the striped Fizik tape and went with Specialized solid white to match my saddle and also ditched the red/black Durano tires and went with Black Specialized Turbo's. Much Better and thanks guys!!

    That works for me, personally I'd go with black hoods but it not a deal breaker for me.
    The red hoods tie in with the stem.
    I'm going to call the the "Devils Bike".(seeing as you're from N.J.)

    not to tear your bike apart, but Im glad you went with the white tape. black hoods will look good. Black stem would look even Gooder IMO
