had to go see her

I mean, literally, I had to go and pick up my wheel
I couldn't help it that she was there
enticing me from the street
teasing me with her carbon fibre forks and seatstays
funny how the newest high tech stuff is made out of the same stuff as us, carbon that is.
like the cookie monster jersey too

turns out that it wasn't the model I was showing you from the orbea site, as I said it's a leftover from last year, model asphalt criterium, (or maybe thats not the name of the model, I think it's a replica 3) that doesn't seem to be on the orbea website now, so maybe they have changed models
here's a test of pretty close to the same bike from some american site.(I googled)
this looks close to the mark but with different wheels and carbon seat stays as an option.

but the rest more or less like I said

ultegra 10 speed
that's a fancy way of saying twenty speed

change those cranks for 175 mm ones

and fly
only 9.5 kgs too
if I was willing to spend 4-5 times more I get it down to 7.5 kgs
but I would rather eat less
