    ORBEA LANZA 29er

    Some pics of my first 29er. I'm still swappin' parts to make it lighter and comfier. The last pic is taken near a really nice singletrack. When I master my video skills, I'll post it here.

    Black tywraps on the bike

    I was used to a titanium Clark Kent F14, so I really felt the stiffnes fo aluminum but, on the other hand, the Lanza accelerates like a rocket: all my (little) power is transmitted to the ground with no loss.

    Now, I ride with a Titec Flat Tracker titanium bar and have just ordered a ti seatpost, just to tame some hits.
    Though I'm not a weight-weenie, don't like heavy bikes. The bike weighed 13,04 kg right from the box (Tora SL Air), and now it is 11,2 kg.

    It gets dirty very often, take it for sure

    I think a 2.1 Nevegal would fit the frame. The 2.1 Python is very narrow.

    You are seeing the "ugly" part , and this is a jeep-track

    Kung Stalle: could you weigh the frame? It seems to me it's a 20-inch frame

    Nice bike. I used to ride a rigid Orbea Lanza 29er also. Couldn't go rigid for long and changed the front fork. Awesome awesome ride.
