Just took delivery of a '16 Orbea Orca M-Team. The previous owner ordered it through their custom program and put around 1,200mi on it. It's in amazing condition, but the group and build kit isn't doing justice to the frameset. I got a sweet deal on it though and new I'd be into some work swapping parts. The initial sits indicates it fits. I'll take her out tomorrow for a shakedown ride though; and then start working on the rebuild.

Currently:

6870 Di2 (34/50, 11/28, Stages)
FSA K-Force Post, Stem, Bars (130mm, 44cm)
Tape (unk.)
S-Works Toupe Saddle
Vision TriMax 30 Wheels, Skewers
Vittoria Open Corsa 25s (unk. tubes)
Arundel Dave-O Cages
DA9000 +4mm Pedals

7.74kg as shown

Early Changes (all in my parts bin):

DA9000 (36/52, 12/25, Stages)
Ritchey WCS Carbon Bars (42cm)
Thomson Masterpiece Post
Thomson X2 or Kalloy (130mm)
Stripped Flite Carbon Saddle (~130g)
Fizik SL 2mm Tape
Vision Metron 40 Tubulars, Skewers
Tufo S33 Pro 24mm Glued
Bontrager XXX Cages
Time Xpresso 12 Pedals

Not sure what that will get it to...

Congrats man! You will love that frame. It is a truly outstanding performer. It's an OMR right? Top tube insignia? I have it's comrade. 2016 Custom painted through My O program. The paintwork on these bikes is absolutely stunning but very heavy. I specified extreme gloss and depth for mine, and they did just that. While not a WW by any means, it is a fantastic all around road bike.
Mine is exactly 6.9 with..........
57 OMR Frame custom gloss paint
Sram Etap
Sworks Turbo Tires 26mm
Vittoria Latex Tubes
Bontrager Aeolus3 Carbon wheels
Ritchey WCS Carbon Evo Curve Bars at 42mm
Ritchey WCS C220 120mm stem
Ritchey WCS Carbon seatpost
Selle Italia Flite Kit Carbonio
Dura Ace Pedals
Jenson USA Carbon cages
K Edge Garmin mount

Have fun on that bike. You will love it!

Sweet choice on your colors. Mine's matte, so I'm wondering if it might be a little lighter without the glossy coat? Hard to say..

It is an OMR and I'm pretty stoked about it being made in Spain. Cool stuff. It's also cool that they use low VOC paints. Small point, just neat that they take that step.

Looking forward to giving it a good ride tomorrow and seeing how things go!
