Hi All and welcome to the '07 Orbea Orca build thread...

As I receive the last few parts for the build I'll be updating THIS thread so that its not all over the place.
I have 90% of parts now, but am waiting on the last couple of bits (D/A STI's and BTM clamps, tool for TUNE bottom bracker and D/A front deraileur) and the time to tune the STI's and FD.

For a reference we're aiming at 5.49kg for a 60cm frame with stock frame and stock orca fork...
Less would be awesome, but we'll see how we go

The frame just arrived today and came in at...
60cm ORCA Frame - 1160g
Uncut fork - 365g (can't cut too much off this as i'm close enough to 6'4")

see pics below (verified)

Should that be 1160g?

How does this compare to the old frame? I'm looking forward to hearing from a fellow west coast man, as to how your build goes.
Where do you source all your parts?

It's a shame you are a few hundred K's south it'd be nice to see your new ride. :D

Hi, congratz to your new purchase. The scale says 1160grams though. Is there anything on the frame, like headset or seatpost clamp etc?

:edit: too slow :?

sorry --- changed it in my post... typo. it is 1160. 40g less than the 1200 predicted grams.

Felix0r - This weight includes frame and seatclamp and dropout/hangers and front deraileur braze on clamp; no headset or biddon bolts.


Not built up yet, so not ridden... BUT... much beefier frame all round. looks to be stiffer (and ORCA v1. was no slouch), graphics are difinietely more modern/stylish/dare i say, sexy... :oops: along with the curves/shape.

I fell in love with the first pics i saw of the frame, but the real life version is even better :!:

Parts are sourced from all over the world... just depending who had what i wanted to use for the build. I've been collecting parts for it for over 6 months, so it's been quite a long build (even though i didn't have a frame yet...). I have yet to weenie the STI levers and the Front deraileur, so hopefully i'll have a chance to tune them next week and have it ready for next weekends riding :wink:
I was originally planning on sweapping most parts from my previous orca build, but all i'm stealing off that now are the zg brakes. Oh how things get out of hand so easily.
shhhh.... don't tell my wife...

Keep your eyes on this space !

cheers all

erik

those tune cranks remind me of my old topline cranks. the build looks great. it almost looks like the cranks are near invisible because they are so thin, compared to the rest of the bike.

I have a question. Are there any bar end plug in the handlebars? There doesn't appear to be any. Is it legal to race without the plugs? I thought it wasn't, just asking.

Thanks for the bigger picture. It's pretty, but I do agree with a poster above that the fork looks out of place with the rest of the bike.

Sorry, yep. No bar end caps in that photo... I was wondering if someone would notice :wink:

I glued the bar end caps on later in the evening... nylon plastic caps, 3g.
Also had to glue a new rear tyre on as I had a gash after 3km's of riding on new tubies... Highest cost per km so far... . Too big a gash to fix, so time for a new tyre... oh well...

As for the fork, I have been contemplating a scapula SP fork to drop another 100g or so... but I really don't mind the Orbea fork. - It looks different and stands out. (and I dont have the money to buy one right now... I'm saving for the biggest WW purchase ever... stay tuned!)


I have the Orca sitting in my kitchen/dining area at the moment and every time I see it I can't believe how awesome it looks. Makes me stop every time!

The first ride went well. The guys at the group ride had quite a few expletives when they lifted it and felt the weight... oh to be a WW,eh!

Lightweight and gorgeous - like all beautiful things should be !

Cheers all,
and merry Christmas!
