I finally pulled the trigger on a new Force Carbon yesterday, so for those of you that were looking for info on the new Orbea framesets, I will post pics/review as soon as it arrives and I can get built up in about 2 wks. I did get a chance to ride a Zonal frame (62cm sloping) Monday night and while it's not the greatest climbing bike, it's still pretty stiff and will really haul on the flats. My new set-up will be as follows:

62cm Orbea Force Carbon Frame
Columbus Muscle Fork
Full Ultegra
Ksyrium SSC's

Thanks ATlien for keeping us frustrated Orbea would be buyers in mind. Looking forward to the review.

The blue/white Force Carbon frames are on back order and Orbea is quoting 6-8wks!!! Arghhhhh!! The only good news is that they will have their new models at Interbike in Oct, which is still within the 6-8wk window, so I'm going to order the blue/white, and if I see anything new that I like I'll just swap it out.

Guess I'll be doing a whole bunch of XC riding for the next 2mo!
