Team Type One rides the Orbea Opal equipped with full Shimano Dura-Ace and PRO components rolling on Continental tires.

Orbea has arguably the best headbadge / cable routing concept on the market.

That’s 15lb 09oz (not 03oz…that glare’s a killa)

One of the team’s sprinter’s bikes had the massive Shimano PRO stem that we spotted on Cavendish’s bike during the Tour de France.  These people must be monsters…I wonder if they reinforce the inside of the steerer tube, it seems like with all those spacers, that’s an easy point for flex if you’re needing such a massive stem.  Just thinking out loud…

good question on that B.B. never seen that one before. Very interesting tool alignment design, seems to shed some weight. by reducing the number of “teeth”.

Why do they leave the Orbea warranty decal on?

And great comment on the stem/steerer. Looks flimsy and dangerous. Not to mention it looks like the Bontrager/FSA/Zipp carbon stems that are on the market now.

Ok, enough Orbea bashing, the headbadge/cable guide is very cool.

That BB is gorgeous…. and with good reason.

I’m betting if you flipped the stem and left out the spacer that you’d end up with just about the same location for the handlebar tops. Flex problem solved!!!
