What is your opinion about the Orbea Orca Carbon? Is it true that it weights 1000gr (2.2lb)??? Does anyone know some links about the frame except the Orbea HP? I would like to hear your opinions if it is good and stiff enough. Thanx

Heres some info. Orbea's new full carbon frame, the Orca. The frame weighs in at just over 1kg and uses T7000s carbon. A complete bike with Campy Record (Hyperon wheels) weighs 7.05kg.

The front end of the Orca. Euskaltel-Euskadi may use this bike next year, pending further tests. Unai Etxebarria used the frame in the stage 20 uphill TT of the Vuelta.

Pretty sweet looking. Ahh, carbon rules! 8)
