Both bikes are very similar. The Strato has a taller headtube and high on style. I have not seen one like mine for the last 4 years I own it. The frame is Toray 700 vs the OMR for the Orbea. I would say the Orbea is more comfortable with the longer seatpost. Cinelli uses 31.6 mm seat post so the ride is not quite as smooth as the Orbea. In term of acceleration, they both are pretty even. Going hard up hill in big ring is great on both. They have that “light” feeling when you pedal up hills. They both feel pretty lively for carbon bikes. In term of stiffness, I haven’t heard any front derailleur rub since I own them.
