    I recently discovered Orbea bikes and I was lucky enough to demo the new Occam last weekend. I've always been curious about these bikes, I knew a guy that had one but they are impossible to find. I ride a Gary Fisher Wahoo now and I consider myself a solid intermediete rider, but this Occam allowed me to do so much more. After 4 hrs I was exhausted but I wanted to keep going. I'm hoping to get the aluminum version when they are available. I wish there was more info out there about these bikes.

    All the Occam goodness you could want.....maybe.

    Clicking this link will take you to Orbea's Youtube channel with all the Occam videos right there waiting to be watched. You can see everything from teaser videos to quality tests and some of our work with Fox to get the suspension tuned to perfection.

    We are hoping to see the alloy models very soon, and the carbon models very near the beginning of 2012.

    Call your dealer now to request the new Occam because our first shipment will not be very large.

    A question to all ORBEA owners out there:
    I was looking at the ORBEA.COM website and they don't show the OIZ anymore. Anyone know why? Has it been discontinued? Is does anyone know why? not enough sales or problems with the frame, or........? Maybe OrbeaFrank can shed some light on this, perhaps?
    love the heck outta mine!! Thanks!

    Hello, just kind of surprised no one has posted anything since last Nov. I've been given the OK by the doc to start ridding my OIZ again and while I was "down' added a RWC shock enduro bearing set. VERY smooth indeed, I really like it. I can't describe it other than "feels smoother". Anyone else done that with their bike?
    Had a question for Orbea Frank. I noticed on the Orbea website that they don't show the Oiz anymore. I gather it has been discontinued/ Wondered why, please? Low sales, broken frames, no interest fro ridding, or...? Thanx! I sure love mine!!

    About Time

    I didn't get to ride much during the winter. I'm just now getting to ride on a regular basis and I think that I finally have the suspension dialed in!!!! This Rallon rides like a dream!!!! Way to go Orbea

    Hello all,

    Bought an Orbea Oiz a couple of years ago, and had no problems/worries with the BB/crank. Got a hip replacement revision in my rt hip and now when I ride, my leg "feels funny" (difficult to describe), but my rt knee goes "out" to the right. I had not paid attention until a few weeks ago that I replaced the BB bearings in the cups with Enduro bearings; that I have a 2.5mm spacer on the driveside bearing cup. I measured the BB it is 73mm, and I looked in the Truvative tech docs for the Giga X Pipe BB says that on a 73mm BB width uses NO spacers?????? I haven't taken it off or anything I just wondered if anyone else has seen similar/ or had to do similar because of chain line problems, or something?? Any info is greatly appreciated. THNX!!
    Oh and yea I am using the same shoes/cleat position as I did before my operation.
    I guess my question is does the OIZ need that spacer, or not?

    He rides very well, except for today I had the chain come off during shifting. I'm trying to get to my 10 post count so I can post a picture.

    Yeah well, it's only a week old and I've only driven it maybe 30 minutes a day. I would have figured they would have adjusted it at the LBS

    well, the shifter do need some tuning after you ride it a couple of time esp if it new.
    if u know to adjust the cable, a couple of turn to tighten up the cable will just do the trick. else the shop could just do it for u.

    Yeah the shop told me to take it in after a month for a retune. I'll just have them do it for now, I'm still learning

    ORBEA OIZ with a NOIR crank question, please?

    I had posted that my OIZ (has a 73mm BB), came with a Noir crankset and on SRAM website instructions for the Noir say NO spacers on the BB if it is a 73 mm BB. Mine came with one and just wondered if anyone elses' did also and if you didn't anything about it?? Thanks in advance!

    Here we go! Finally took some pictures of my 2009 Orbea Alma 29er. Bought this frame used and built it last week. As it sits in the picture it weighs 20 pounds. Probably as light as its going to get without having to spend several hundred dollars upgrading parts.
