Has anyone had experience with, or have an opinion of the Orbea Starship frame? I am looking for a VERY light road frame for road racing.
No experience, but recently saw it in a bike shop I visted...jtferraro

The frame definitely felt very light, but I'm not exactly sure what it really weighed. I have the Orbea catalog though and can maybe look it up. They are supposed to be very reasonably priced, but again...I don't know what that frame actually cost. You probably already know they are made in Spain and they were used in the TDF by Euska...team!

Orbea - Any opinions?hulksmash

As a future purchaser of an Orbea I've posted for any and or all opinions and people have been spare in their feedback. The only info I can give is from the website I've pored over. The Starship comes in at 996 grams, just under a kilo. Very light. As far as ride quality I'm temped to take a 2 hour drive south to where the nearest dealer is an test ride a few different models.

But any informed opinions would be greatly appreciated .
