RIDE #55 Round Table – Orbea Orca GDR
With a 570mm top tube and 545mm seat tube, this bike is for the bigger rider but we all got a turn on the latest version of the Orbea Orca with Shimano (mechanical) Dura-Ace. The wide handlebars get singled out for both praise and lambasting from various members of the RIDE team. There’s universal agreement that the cable routing is cool and that the aesthetic of this bike is wonderful but the sizing means that not everyone got a real taste of what it could be like…
