Orbea Enol

Postby chain_reaction » Mon Apr 23, 2007 4:55 pm

Been reading these forums for the last couple of weeks during my search for my first road bike and many of you have been very helpful. I'm looking at the orbea enol for my first bike, has anyone ever had any experiance on one of these or have an opinion on this bike that could help me in my choice?
I'd much appreciate it thank you! :lol:

G'Day Chain, nice to read ya :)

I had a look at Orbeas Aus site.
She's a nice looking unit and I'm sure you know that red bikes go faster :wink:

I looked at Sora when I bought a roadie recently but decided against purely because of the release triggers on the shifters not working well with my hands, from what I've read here it functions well apart from that. Tuco, another of the red bikers here runs Sora and he does quite well on the racecourse.

Have you test ridden her yet? That's where you'll find out if she's the one :D

Good Luck with the hunt.

Went to lifecycles in Penrith today and they don't allow test rides for one reason or another.

I've sat on a few bikes most notably the OCR 3 and the orbrea just seems like a better fit for some reason. The price range of the orbea is nearing OCR 2 which has tiagra but being a newbie I probaly couldn't feel the difference anyhow. And yes I think the paint scheme is pretty bad ass too.
But hopefully i'll be riding something in the next few days, I've been shopping for a bike for about 2 months and now I just wanna hit the road!

I would avoid 8 speed equipments. 10 speed is the current standard and is easier to keep components compatible.
