    And I’m very happy with it. Took a lot of searching to find something in budget, C2W-able and worthy of replacing my lovely 2002 Stinky.

    So far this seems bang on, bit of a gamble with the make, I know they are good road bikes but never seen an Orbea mtb in the flesh.

    It’s light, good round a car park and fits me well.

    Needs a shorter stem I think, new pedals and I’ve just ordered a shock pump to get things right but, I like! 🙂

    Photo doesn’t really do it justice, it’s a very svelte, strokable (!) frame.

    It has a ‘Made in Spain’ sticker…does anyone know if they make their own frames in Spain?

    Orbea? Spain? Troll alert!! Next you’ll be telling us how you only bought it because you liked the colours and were bored, and got a road bike to match because you’re minted!! 😀

    Alu frames made in Spain, carbon ones in Taiwan.

    Looks great – not seen one of those before. Have fun.

    PS Someone will be along in a minute to critique your fence/gate. 😀

    Chuffed it’s a european frame, not sure why, but it seems good…

    @jive…no road bikes here, and defo not loaded 😉

    Hicksy, I was more worried about the dried out puddle!

    I tried, couldn’t fault it tbh!

    What model is it? Front Triangle has a mondraker look to it?

    It’s a Rallon 70. Some of the spec is basic, but only stuff that wears out.
    Frame is great, I like the fuel tank bulge at the headtube, going to be great for my light battery pack.

    Nice to see a new bike without the usual birdnest of cables on it. Very nice toy, enjoy.
