Guys,

I have an Orbea frame that I crashed a few years ago, It is
a Ordu, The wreck was pretty bad smashing my fork into 3 pieces.

The frame has a small damage area on the bottom of the down tube
i can get fixed, so the question is: What do i do with the frame?

I have a PZ racing carbon crank set and a set of DA 7800 brakes,
so should I assemble it into a working bike, make a hybrid or
sell it? I was thinking a single speed to goof around with, I know the
position will suck as a single speed but I will never ride a TT bike
again!

Whatever you do, you must change the downtube's decals completely. Get rid of "ORBEA" and put the following, in full, in a 70's comic font:

Go single Speed but ONLY if you can get a full disk for the rear :thumbup:
