Hello fello Orbea owners. I am having a 48cm Opal built up and I was at the bike shop today to check out the progress of the build. One of the techs told me that because of the tight triangle (especially in my size) I could probably on get a standard water bottle into the cages. Large bottles would not fit.

Would someone be kind enough to post pictures of their Orbea's in a size 48 to show what type of cages they have and if you have the same issue? I curenlty ride a 49cm LItespeed Tuscany and I can use a standard or large bottle.

Thanks in advance.

My wife rides a 48 opal with no problems on water bottles except the big polar and 20oz bottles.

I kind of have the same problem with my size 51cm Opal, I've lost "real state". I can at least fit a large bottle on the the slopping tube, on the seat tube only a standard bottle fits :(
I could put a large one there too, but it takes fiddling and effort so I rather not.
