Does anyone have more information about the Orbea frames the Euskatel riders are using? If I remember correctly, another Spanish team used these back in the 80's, and the frames are made in Spain.

More just curiousity about the equipment the pros are using than anything else. Thanks in advance.

I tried to find info the other day because I was wondering who was making that sloping top tube frame, but couldn't find any info. I think the website's link was not functional. Well, at least the link off the Euskatel site was not useful. Found some other sites with some zeus-orbea bikes for sale, but these were used... no info there.

I'd like to know if the bikes euskatel are riding are even really made by zeus-orbea or rebadges of some other brand.

Works better in Internet Exporer than Netscape. Go figure. Got their catalog a while back looks like the Euskadi bikes are from Orbea.

I believe that they are made in Spain, very high-end aluminum frames. Supergo was selling some Orbea framesets last year for $700-$800. I do know the UK importer of these frames as well as the Euskatel team wear is Prendas Cyclery, www.prendas.co.uk. Maybe they will have some information on the frames there since they sell them.

Very nice frames, almost bought one. Have a good custom option as well.
