Strengths:    Ultegra Groupset, Ride Quality, still learning

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
This review is on a 2010 Orbea Ora TLT. The first thing that catches your eye is how beautiful this bike is, then there are the Reynolds Strike wheels that come stock, topped off the the full Ultegra groupset. Not bad for $3800,let alone the $2000 I paid for a hardly used bike - 20 miles.
So for what really matters: ride, fit, and power. For now, and I will update this review, I can only comment on ride because I'm still tweaking fit, which impacts power.
Ride. This bike rides like a dream. Immediately I noticed how smooth this bike was on the road and at speed. I wasn't being bounced around like my other bike - Specialized Tarmac with clip-ons. I can't say if this is coming from the frame, design, or the wheelset (66mm carbon dish) - just that the bike is smooth.

Favorite Ride:   Orbea Ora TLT 2010

Price Paid:    $2000.00

Purchased At:   Used: Craigslist

Similar Products Used:   I'll be honest, I haven't tried any other bikes other than my original bike, a Tarmac with clip-ons. This deal, $2000 for a $4000 bike, fell into my lap and I couldn't turn it down.

Bike Setup:   The bike is completely stock, with one upgrade - a white Ritchey 4-axis stem. It looks so much better than the stock Zeus stem.

Strengths:    Soft ride, easy to maneuver, predictable handling, comfortable even on 3+ hour rides.

Weaknesses:    You can save 5-10 watts by going with a Trek TTX, or a Cervelo P2/P3, or a Felt B series, for just a little more $$. It's not the stiffest frame out of the saddle, but not too many TT bikes are.

Bottom Line:   
This is actually the review for the 2008 Orbea Ora, but since it's essentially the same as the 07 Ordu, it will have to work.

Strengths:    stiff, lite, little to no flex

Weaknesses:    none?

Bottom Line:   
This is my third year riding my Ordu and really there is little bad to say about it. I'm a bigger guy whose weight is fluctuates around 190-200. I have had no issue with flexing, no issues with the frame at all. The frame is stiff, reliable, lite, and oh my fast. I've raced with this bike in two Ironman events in lake placid and wisconsin, so I know hills, and this bike took care of them no problem.

Strengths:    super-aero, fast, sexy, light and easy to hold high speed. It just wants to go fast!

Weaknesses:    Tiny headtube to get your body extra flat means that I too am using extra spacers. Not a bad thing necessarily.

Bottom Line:   
What a good looking bike! Changed the wheels to my TT Corima 4 spoke and used them in the local 25 to warm it up before the next Triathlon this weekend. Faster by far is how I'd describe it! I can't tell you why, but be prepared for PBs galore on this thing! Very aero design gets you right down over the front wheel for maximised speed. This makes control a little difficult to start with but you soon learn that you don't need to throw it around to get where you want to go. Very happy. Considering the road bike to match.
