Orbea Orca 2008, came to me in autumn 2009, upgraded basically in everything except the fork and headset. Even the frame lost some carbon because of the drilling for Di2 :D

After 4 seasons as my first carbon bike - trained, raced, scratched, crashed, but survived - now retired to a training bike status this season (and, therefore, inevitably destined to grow in weight because of wheelset, tires, and some other bits), but eventually I think it has a place here with overall original racing weight close to 6.7 kg :D

Looks awesome. We had one of these come in our shop the other week for a tune up and I was admiring it. Didn't look quite as good as yours tho. Good build.

Very nice. When i looked for a new frameset in 2007, this, in black/white version, was one of my favorites.
still looking great, time could not harm it.
