Orbea Bikes- any opinions?(3 posts)

Orbea Bikes- any opinions?hulksmash

Hi, does anyone ride, own or have any experience with this brand of bike? I'm looking at the EXCL8R model and can get a great deal on one and I'm trying to figure out whether it's worth it. Are the frames any good? They're listed all over the UK sites as good price points compared to Pinarellos and DeRosas. But do they match up in quality as far as european bikes go? Any and all opinions respected and read. Thanks.

I know a guy who rides one and he loves it. He's only had it for a couple of months so it's early on the durability question. I don't know the model but he has the Euskatel team type, with a compact frame. I know he's also had a Cannondale and Trek 5500 and he prefers the Orbea.
Thanks muchhulksmash

Thanks for the reply. I think the bike I'm looking at comes in the Euskatel color scheme too. But if these are the bikes it's up against and he likes the Orbea better, then great.
