Some kids of Euskaltel-Euskadi pro team tested this frame on TDF 2003, it´s a frame 100% made in Spain (Mallabia, Vizcaya), they do the frame hand-crafted and you can say them all yours frame measurements and they will make you a personal frame.
1000 gr of T700S carbon fiber (always something more, fiber and size will give the real weight).
I like it on Euskaltel-Euskadi colour, real live colours!!! (see on photo)

You can see more on www.orbea.com, you have an English version of the page.

Realy a beautiful frame, I live near the Orbea factory (about 50km) and "he" is calling me!!!!!!

carbon fiber, the material of today and the future, unless someone has something better.

at least in Spain the Orbea´s frames, forks have lifetime-warranty, that´s because Spain is different, let´s buy spanish products, you´ll make us happier, and richer too :D .
I´ve got a Orbea frame (Starship) and I can assure Orbea´s products are very very good, and cheaper than other brands products (as Colnago, deRosa, etc...) ok, they don´t have their glamour...yet.

The price of the frame will be about 1800€ or near.
I can say you that people on ORBEA only think on the satisfaction of the buyer, if you have any problem they will be there to solve it.

Today someone tell me that the frame is out on the shops, I will go to see one on live.

One thing more, I don´t work on Orbea :wink: :wink:
