Orbea Orca Aero M20i Team 2018 – Carbon Road Bike 55cm

I am reluctantly selling my Orbea Orca Aero M20I Team Carbon Road Bike. It was purchased on the 28th August 2018 as an early 50th Birthday present, was ridden twice in 2018 and has a total of 250 dry miles on the road. The Orbea Orca Aero has a 55cm carbon frame, is in fantastic condition and is a smooth, aggressive Aero bike built to be ridden fast. This particular model is a custom model with Gloss Red Paint finish. I have listed the full spec of the bike below and have included numerous close-up images of pretty much all aspects of the road bike, reflecting how beautiful this cycle really is.

The Orca Aero is the perfect accomplice for riders who aspire to become more familiar with the podium. Do battle off the front while others hide in the wheels, vanquished. Take pulls. Love the gutter. Find unknown strength in a machine designed for glory and hoard it for that single moment when you seize your opportunity. Marginal gains are for those playing the long game – Orca Aero would rather take the win today.

The M20i Team comes with a Shimano Ultegra Di2 Group Set with a built in charging unit on the down tube.

The original 120mm Orbea stem has been replaced with a 90mm Zipp Service Course Gloss Black Stem, but the bike will also comes with the original stem. 

I have also included a pair of Shimano 105 Pedals.

The Orbea Orca Aero’s 3:1-exceeding fork blades look particularly svelte, with a small frontal profile and a tapering crown which merges smoothly into the head tube. Orca Aero’s fork blades exceed a 3:1 ratio for aero efficiency The bike uses direct mount brakes, allowing it to provide clearance for 28mm tyres as well as the fitted 25mm width. Since there’s no bridge between the pivots, direct mount rear brakes can be spongy and often brands fit a metal plate between the two halves. Orbea has avoided this by having the two dropped stays meet just above the wheel, so that braking is effective and well modulated. The front direct mount brake is equally effective. The Orbea Orca Aero frame uses a BB3686 Evo bottom bracket, which offers a wide pedalling platform for good power delivery. The clamp for the elliptical seatpost is neatly integrated into the end of the top tube. Big tube profiles can lead to a harsh ride, but Orbea has nailed this too; the Orca Aero copes really well with poorly surfaced roads with the sloping top tube giving plenty of seat post extension to smooth the ride. The thin fork blades also soak up bumps as well as helping the Orca Aero track exceptionally well on fast descents and sweeping bends. The Orca Aero is the perfect accomplice for riders who aspire to become more familiar with the podium. Do battle off the front while others hide in the wheels, vanquished. Take pulls. Love the gutter. Find unknown strength in a machine designed for glory and hoard it for that single moment when you seize your opportunity. Marginal gains are for those playing the long game – Orca Aero would rather take the win today.
