Well, I got a call this morning from my LBS regarding something is in customs for me.

I thought I canceled the bike when I decided to go with my 695SR.

Well, from what I hear, it is going to be a 2011 Orbea Orca DI2 Black/Blue Frameset.

Since I have a extra Di2 groutset laying arround, I decided to take it. Hopefully it will clear customs by the end of the week.

Plans for this bike.
Di2 groupset
3T Ltd ARX Stem and Ergonova Handlebar (really love this combo)
San Marco Aspide Carbon Seat
Old Reynolds DV46C UL (for now)

Yes, it did but it came in white. I am trying to get them to find me a black one. Also will try to use the adapter to see if my SM Aspide Carbon can be mounted on it.

Also just picked up a Blue Black Garmin 800 to go with this bike!!!

I am using a Selle Black Carbino Flow with the adapter until if and when my white mono link arrives
The adapter works without any problem
Do you want to sell your white mono link

Just a little update to my ORCA

I decided to change the wheels back to my Reynolds DV46C UL.
Also I found I had an extra set of Zero Gravity Red brakes in storage, and I will be using that on my 695SR and taking the EE Brake from the 695SR and installing it on my ORCA.
Also going to change the 7900 pedals to Look Blade Ti. Just used to using Look pedals. Hope to get this all done this week, since Typhoon is coming back to Taiwan this week.
