Anyone seen Orbea's welds up close? ( Aluminum Frames )
Are they done nice like DeRosa, Colnago etc?

I was just looking at some today. I've heard a rumor that the Zonal is not as nicely finished as the higher prices frames. I compared it to a Deda Force Orbea, and the XLR8R Orbea. All were very nice. I have a steel framed Orbea that is made out of very thin walled nivachrome and they do not finish the welds (They are left raw for strength). It was nice to see the smooth welds on the Al bikes. The bottom brackets are left raw though. Nice frames.
