I wonder why you think that de S-works is better then the Orca?
I love my S-works Sl4 and I think that it is a fantastic bike, but would like to know the difference between Orca en Sl4 S-works.

Great bike by the way! :mrgreen:

As shown its weight is 6,5 kg.
The frame size is 56cm and it fits me very well as I am 1,89m tall.

From the first time, I noticed that the S-Works geometry has to offer a more aggressive riding position that helps at road racing.
It is also stiffer and more comfortable giving the rider the opportunity to go faster in straight and uphill and making the long training rides easier.
Generally, taking consideration of several details we can reach the conclusion that this frame is designed by specialists.

Don't take off the decals. It is just great the way it is now. Without the wheel decals it becomes too black imho.
I love black stealth bikes, but sometimes they can become a little bit boring if it isn't done properly.

I love the way the wheels match the frame, saddle etc. In my view it all looks fantastic together. Amazing looking bike, very nicely put together.

Don't tell me you moved away from the Lightweights... ;)
Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.

From the beginning the Standard Gen III, apart from the appearance, didn't behave well for me.
FFWD are much better wheels.

I personally have tried both wheels and many others, so that's my opinion and not what I heard or suppose.
It isn't neccessary to agree with me.

In the mind of every road cyclist Lightweight are the top.
That's the reason I bought them from the first place, but reality difffers for me.
I believe that they are a very stiff overpriced wheelset and nothing more.

Maybe for the living room and the game of lightest is the best choice.
But for real road racing there are carbon wheels such as FFWD F6R and Campagnolo Bora that behave much better and worth every euro.
