Orbea have allowed the consumer to have plenty of free rain when ordering an Orbea which can be totally individual! the bars, Wheels, ratios among other things are all options but tthe real fun begins with the paint choices. Color Area One provides the main frame color, while Area Two colors the head tube, under the top tube and seat tube and so on for three more sections, until every square millimeter has your own paint choices from 12 colors. Then it’s on to logos.
Of course, the last touch is adding your name to the frame, in the same spot Orbea’s World Tour Pros on Cofidis put their names. After that, you choose your local Orbea dealer and we handle the purchase and delivery in approximately four weeks with no extra charge for the custom paint.
Global Cycling Network, the most important road cycling channel on YouTube, recently visited the Orbea factory in Mallabia. They also couldn't resist designing their very own 100% customized bicycle using the MyO platform.
Simon also wanted to see up close the handcrafted process we use to paint our frames, so they opened the doors to where "the magic happens," as he puts it.
