The Opal is a sweet bike, carbon looks wise: better than the Orca, the Opal has this checkerboard look, nice thicker weaves, that's what makes it stiffer and more performance oriented.
With the Opal I have to lower the PSI on my tire to 110lbs (I'm 153lbs) and rockets forward like nothing I've seen.

haha, before i even read your post I was already fending off the delayed buyers remorse brought on by the pics.

The new paint job looks great. I'm not going to go as far as saying I wish I had waited... It'd be like your girl coming home all dolled up for you in a tight little mini skirt and you telling her you wish it had some frills on it.

Not really; the outer carbon "weave" that you see on any bike is just a cosmetic layer. It does help to distinguish between models, though.
