Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

 Post subject: Orbea Orca Carbon!
PostPosted: Fri Oct 03, 2003 6:54 pm 
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)
