This is going to be my upcoming build. Just ordered the frame last week, and it should be arriving at the dealer next week.

The idea is to strip my current bike, a Cinelli Estrada, for most of the components and then use them on the Orca. The buildlist is as follows:

Frame: Orbea Orca 2010 size 54
Stem: Promax 95 mm - hoping to replace it with a 3T ARX Team stem in the future
Handlebars: FSA Wing Pro Compact size 44
Seatpost: FSA K-Force Light SB32 - in the mail
Saddle: Prologo Scratch TR - might change it for the Fizik Antares
Gruppo: SRAM Red with BB30 crankset
Wheels: Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL's with KCNC skewers - looking for a good offer on a set of low profile wheels with low weight
Pedals: Speedplay Zero
Bottle cages: Tacx Tao

Can't wait to get this build going. I will be updating this as the different parts arrive. The first thing I bought was a torq wrench to use on the carbon seatpost.

So the first package arrived today. It included the following items:
FSA K-Force Light SB32 seatpost. A bit far off the claimed weight of 207 grams?

SRAM Red BB30 crankset

The Orca has arrived at the dealer in Germany, so hopefully it will get here within a couple of days. Can't wait for it to arrive!!

Is that a compact crankset? Weighs quite a bit less than mine.

Latest update:
Just purchased a set of mint Shimano 7850 C24 wheels, that should arrive tomorrow. They will be great as a complimentary wheelset when the wind is acting up instead of the Cosmics, as well as for riding longer hills and mountains. I live close(about 1½ hours drive) to Hallandsåsen which is a swedish area with longer climbs.

The frame arrived at Wheelsports in Weselberg this monday, and will be shipped out today. Hopefully that'll mean that the frame will arrive here tomorrow - the chances are slim though. Frank from the shop has been great, and has answered each and everyone of my stupid emails. He found a great price on the Orca frame, and I would recommend him to anyone!

Titanium bolts might be the way to go.

Yes, I will be using the parts from the Cinelli for now. Then I will rebuild the Cinelli again. I love the Cinelli, and that's why I don't want to sell it. Unfortunately it's not as modern as I'd like it to be. Needs to be a tad stiffer, which the Orca should do.

The 207g claimed weight is for a 2010 model, yours is 2009 or earlier. The clamp is different on the newer models...

So the prognosis is for the frame to arrive monday :( It would have made the perfect weekend had it come today. The Shimano wheels came though, and I will be testing them tomorrow hopefully.

I have a Easton EC90 setback post on my Orca, you could save 100g :shock: , I would think that would be a No Brainer.
I think Pricepoint had them on sale not long ago.

So after being very patient, the bike came this Tuesday. I took it to a shop to have the headset installed, and asked them if they could remove the BB30 to BSA adapter - which they had no prior experience with, so it would be at own risk. So tomorrow I'm turning the bike in to a shop that has done it before. But have it home at the moment and I'm starting the build.

Here's some pictures:

Frame weighed in at 1149 grams in a size 54 - this was with the adapter in the crank as well as the thing you mount the front derailleur on.

The frame actually fits the colorscheme in my livingroom

Congrats on the new frame arriving!

I have to give you kudos on your Cinelli build, that was really sweet the way you slowly upgraded and got to the point where the only thing left to upgrade was the frame itself.

Also commending you on giving it a crack to set it all up yourself, thats what I did with my new build, found a top top mechanic and he walked me through step by step and even now with any adjustments or anything he teaches me what to do, its really rewarding.

Its going to look sweet when its all built!

Enjoy :thumbup: :mrgreen:

Forks are so overrated :D No just put the same picture in twice, have corrected it now.

The fork weighed in, uncut, at 445 grams
