Very similar discussion here. OP same heightHi all
I have an order placed for a medium size. I'm 5 ft 8 inches (173cm). My inside leg is 74cm. I'm seeing some confusing info on Orbea sizing. Ideas?
First ride today. size seems fine - no issues there (thanks folks). Unfortunately one of the bottle holder screws was cross threaded on arrival and promptly broke when I attempted to remove it to fit a cage. Not a huge issue but annoying.Hi....
I AM that OP....and as you will have read I too was confused by Orbeas sizing......
Hi G3CWI,First ride today. size seems fine - no issues there (thanks folks). Unfortunately one of the bottle holder screws was cross threaded on arrival and promptly broke when I attempted to remove it to fit a cage. Not a huge issue but annoying.
Rode up the the Cat and Fiddle by way of a first test. The power is far more subtle than the Giant ebike that I rented at the weekend but I think that's probably a good thing. I still got a good workout but without going into the red much. I was a bit surprised to use 58% of the battery on a 13.25 mile ride (1650ft ascent). I was on "turbo mode" though.
I felt that I will need to adjust my riding style somewhat to get the best out of the bike.
You're gonna struggle with a 40mms tyre. I noticed ordering my M20i the carbon frames didn't take a guard (so the black plastic inserts on the fork are threaded?) Anyway I purchased the dealers alloy demo from them for winter riding. Will only though get a 28mm tyre on without possible rub.Just starting to get the bike winter-ready so obviously I need some mud guards. The carbon bike is advertised as having mudguard fittings (but no pannier fittings). It does have fittings on the front but nothing on the back - how odd! My local bike expert said it was "rather limiting". He suggested that the best bodge was SKS Raceblades although the tyres are 40mm and the widest raceblades are 32mm. Any better ideas?
