MY local bike shop is carring that line now (Tri Sport). The Obrea looks like a very well made frame and a super price. BIKE LUST all over again. Looking for feedback. Also looking at the LOOK KG381, any thoughts?

I am getting one in a about 2 weeks. Spoke to Orbea USA and there is a new shipment in in 2 weeks. I can't wait. Not sure which model, I just want one. I have only heard good things from friends.

Are the prices at a shop the same as on the site? Or do they discount at a shop?
I know the prices are good already but do not include a fork.
I am also looking at them.

It is hard to find a store that has them, there are none around where I am, and I can't find any on the web. So I am going straight through them. Someone did suggest telling a store that you want an Orbea and they buy it for you and maybe you get a discount from them and they can put it together for you.
Looking at them too...shortstroke

I was first turned on to them by a LBS, but they didn't keep any in stock. One of their mechanics is ordering one with custom specs. I've since located a semi-local shop that has a few frames and a couple of built up bikes in stock. I'll be visiting them this week. The pricing seems good and it's my understanding that for only about $150 more they will build to custom measurements.(I'll verify that price with the shop this week.)The color available schemes look great too!
One of the current magazines (I forget which one.)had a very brief review of the XLR8 model and raved about it. They said the ride and performance was outstanding.
