Acutally if you really want to get technical the New Starship Carbon frame you have is a Columbus Starship Carbon front triangle bonded to Zeus Carbon stays all put together and painted by Orbea.

I know there´s a lot of teams riding Orbea´s bycicles, Maia-Milaneza GSI portuguese team, CCC Polsat GSI polish team, Euskaltel Euskadi, Orbea MTB Team, Orbea-Olarra elite-sub23 road team, ...........
I live in Spain, and I know these teams.
I´ve look their homepage and you´re right, because now it´s 2004 catalogue, and all the bycicles are Orbea (I don´t know why), in the 2003 catalogue, only the replicas where Orbea.

My favourite road frame is deRosa King Carbono, it´s not a frame, it´s art.
When I see a deRosa bike, my eyes become dishes, that bikes are beautifull.

Art is allways precious, I love the Titanio, 1.4kg but beautiful and a very durable comfortable bike

Now I'm a C40 rider, but have to point out that not only were both Ullrich (97) and Riis (96) riding Pinarellos, but Indurain (I think) won all five of his TdF's on Pinarellos...


Did'nt Indurain win his first tour on a TVT carbon jobbie?

if you look closely, many of those bikes in his later tours were tig'd steel. not welded by Pinerallo but rather the folks at Pagoretti.

My favorite frames are Bob Jackson frames from here in the UK......
Maybe not the lightest's in the world but they won't be filling landfill site space up in 3 years time!

Best value fer money frames You can get, and they are custom built to YOUR size!
