I have a crush on Orbea!

This is kind of embarrassing to admit, but this July when I went to Utah to see the new 2012 Orbeas and walked into the display room I was dumbfounded by the ridiculous beauty of the new Orbea bicycles. The people from Orbea were talking to me and I could barely speak and my heart was racing. I go to trade shows, and see everyone’s shiny new stuff, but I've never had this kind of reaction before. Sure, the Hub is an Orbea dealer so some of the thrill was that we get to stock these exceptionally stunning bikes, but like I said I see lots of new bikes. We are getting our first shipment of new 2012 Orbeas this week so I'm a little giddy again.

A New Orbea Road Bike……..

The 2012 Orbea Aqua TTG: $1259.99

The Orbea Aqua TTG is all about racing at a price that is often ignored when a company tries to make a bike fast. The much improved new Shimano Tiagra 10spd shifters and crankset are coupled with a 105 rear derailleur that performs like serious race equipment at a fraction of the cost. The Aqua frame encourages you to jump on the pedals push it, and the Shimano R500 wheelset spins up quickly and rewards the effort.

A New Orbea Hybrid Bike……..

2012 Orbea Carpe H10: $1529.99

The Orbea Carpe H10 is a versatile urban speed machine. The frame is steep and agile like a road bike and the Orbea wheels and excellent Vittoria Randoner 32c tires say go anywhere without fear. When it comes time dial back the speed, the Formula RX brakes will be up to the task even if you are fully loaded touring and hauling a trailer. The wide range Shimano 10spd XT drive train will get you up that hill fully loaded also.

2012 Orbea Carpe H60, Hub price $549.99

An affordable Orbea. The Carpe H60 at $549.99 is alloy single speed hybrid that even at such an affordable price still comes with Orbea's lifetime frame warranty. Simple, fast with reflective side wall puncture resistant tires that will keep you rolling worry free to the places you need to go.

Orbea Rallon SX30

The elegant Orbea Diamond Link suspension design and Fox’s RP23’s Boost Valve expertly set up by Lonnie at Orbea was a blast, plush, but with virtually no pedal induced bob when ascending I had a moment of feeling out of my depth at the top of the chair lift, and stopped to take this picture, then the Rallon made me right at home.
