Hello, this is my second Orca in a raw following a 2010 and my third Orbea in total. The bike is still evolving in terms of parts but this is now a fair condition to publish. Going directly to the pictures:

Nice, I think the frame and build looks great with the silver / grey and a few red accents. The wheel logos also look good. You're also lucky as you seem to have an aesthetically perfect slammed stem to visible seat post relationship.

There seem to be a few tiny details to fix, then it would be perfect.
- put the chain on properly for photos :D
- personally I like less insulating tape on the bars
- what's the rubber gaiter on the RD? Looks like you might need to cut it to a shorter length or remove altogether.
- Obviously cut the fork once you're happy with the bar height

That is a winner :thumbup:
Only thing I'd change would perhaps be the Eastons for some Bora Dark Labels ?
But really it's just smashin' that, well done.

Got a small update. Replaced the Record calipers with a set of Ciamillo Negative Gravity SL and saved 100 grams on the swap. Great looking piece of work with Record equivalent braking.
