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!

Sell it. Then make pizza and watch Magnum PI

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:

"nananananananana-BATMAN!"

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