Finally Orbea Picture ufffff

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

But wait, you don't actually use that granny gear combo do you? Oh, you only have one bottle cage, you must be a poseur.

It's a very sweet bike. Still, it must be the amounts of crazy-hot bikes that are posted here or something, but I'm almost finding rides like the Orbea Orca to look, well, more 'vanilla' every day.

Ah well.

OK this bike cost me "about" $2400 with 2007 Kysirium ES wheels,and upgraded full size crank set,size is 51.

Funny Yesterday took her for my first nice ride and I went for 41 miles before I even noticed it,the ride is very nice,fast and comfortable,of course the wheels make a big impact on the ride guys I have many hobbies but I've never being in love with any of my hobbies like with this thing,I've clocked 31.2 MPH max and average of 20.3 MPH on this bike I'm saving energy for my next ride..

CrimsonKarter21 or Karate Kid :-),When I ride my bike I try to go north to Boca Raton,West Palm Beach ect ,I try to avoid going South (Miami) because of the crazy driving situation down there,but don't forget that "we" all have to be careful when riding don't matter the place.

Anybody from Fort Lauderdale out there !!!

PipinFan,

No problem. Glad I could help you post your photo. That first post of yours was almost it. You just needed to add an [/IMG] at the end.

That's a sweet ride -- I love Orbeas. Enjoy!
