OK, for my tuppence worth I reckon a great bike to shortlist for RBOTY 2007 is the (new) Orbea Orca. I have just taken delivery of a frame in bronze, and Orbea have kindly written my name on the top tube at no extra charge. I have an original Orca which I love but was sadly damaged in a crash last Summer, and I can't wait to build this one up and ride it in the better weather - Record, Schmolke, Lightweight wheels - it's going to be seriously sweet!
Great reviews from those who have ridden it, including a journo from a rival mag who was riding a Parlee Z3 on a Pyrenean jaunt I did last year who said he didn't want to give the Orca back after a day's test ride in the Pyrenees during last year's Tour, light at 1.1kg for a 57cm frame (but not stupidly light), stiff, comfortable, great handling, lifetime warranty, a decent range of colours to match your team kit, and several prebuilt options as well as a frameset only package at very reasonable prices from Europe's largest bike manufacturer. What more could you want?
Incidentally, the crashed Orca has been successfully repaired by a local firm who specialise in carbon fibre and fibre glass mouldings, so will be the summer training bike - all is not lost! ;)
