FS: 54cm Orbea Orca carbon frameset - SOLD

by schmiken   March 9, 2011  

I have for sale an Orbea Orca carbon fibre frameset (frame, forks, seatpost and
headset). It is a 54cm frame with the measurements below:

540 mm Top tube (Centre to centre)
525 mm Seat tube (BB to top)
152 mm Head tube (1 1/8 integrated)
68mm Standard threaded BB
410 mm chainstay (BB to dropout)

It weighs just 1120g for the frame and is 1758g as pictured. That includes seatpost, fork and headset. It is one of the nicest riding frames I've ever owned. It is extremely comfortable, but the big chainstays seem to make it accelerate like your bum's on fire!

I have ridden this for less than 200 miles (including one sportive). There is two very small scratches on the toptube where it fell over Sad however this only scratched the top layer of paint and it has been repaired. Aside from this it is in perfect condition and I'm really quite sad to have to sell it.
I bought this as a winter project but owing to lack of funds and time it will have to go. It seems a real shame to leave this hanging in the garage gathering dust when it could be being ridden!

I bought the frameset for £1200 eight months ago and have barely ridden it, so would welcome offers around £655 posted.
