Orbea Occam 2020 M10 stock
Nah, you are OK with the large (would say perfect). I'm 6' and look like a giant on a large with 40mm stem (probably because the 97kgs ).
My LBS had two M size M30's in gray, so I got one, basic stock build.Has anyone ridden both the aluminum and carbon versions of the Occam? I just found out I may be able to stretch my new bike budget to the M30.
Was wondering if anyone would be able to speak to the main advantages of the carbon frame. Assuming lower weight and increased stiffness but what's that translate to in the seat?
Same measurements here, maybe another inch in ape reach, got a M and it seems perfect. At some point maybe a 50 or 55 stem, but I like the short one, it handles quick.It's definitely rider dependent. From everything I've read some people just like a smaller bike and some a larger.
I am 5'9" height and ape index, 31.5" inseam and bought a large. I think I am going to get a medium instead. Here are my personal thoughts on the large frame.
Good reach with a short (45mm) stem. Short enough seattube. Very close standover. Stack height OK with spacers over stem but could be lower.
The bike feels good but for the technical riding I like to venture into it feels too big/tall and the standover height doesn't help.
For bombing down trails the large should be more stable. I just tend to like a smaller bike I think. Some people feel too cramped in the smaller cockpit. You will need to run a longer stem comparatively which puts you over the front more.
I think I would be OK with a 55mm stem on medium.
Unfortunately they only had a large to try out. With a 140 fork on the demo these issues were less noticeable, with the 150 I ordered they were more pronounced.
However as said it's going to come down to your personal preference, measurements, and riding style.
my only real issue with the large was standover height. it was close. i could definitely stand-over it but didn't have any wiggle room.at 5'8" I found the M a tad cramped, can't get a L to try locally. Its almost like some manufacturers don't want you to buy their products.
So finally collected the M30 Eagle in XL on Monday. Fitted a few bits and very happy with it although I may need a slightly higher handle bar than the 12mm rise. Will give it a while to see if I adapt 1stYep orbea will deliver to your door or a dealer and you can customise your order as you wish....but you'll have to wait until the new bikes ship and that might not be until December or early next year. If you want one before that it seems to be a question of ringng around and finding what size and spec that dealers have in stock.
I'm praying I have one of the last shipments of the old stock reserved....

As i tried before, on 2 wheelset with 6bolts.. i was not so lucky using two different rotors on the two sets. The best is to keep the same rotors with the same mounted brake pads.I plan to do the same, 1 wheelset with minions and the other more XC
It was not only the caliper alignment.What is the issue you had, did the calipers need adjustment when switching wheels? 1 set is going to be stock 1650s with center lock, the other has 6 bolt hubs.
I generally clean brake pads with isopropyl regularly, and sand with 400grit wetordry on occassion.
