Hi all my Orbea aqua 2009 my 1st road bike after 37 years on the planet

no real uprades don't kill me for the SEAT i struggle with razor sharp seats ive tried riding through the censored pain but it never went away so went for a padded seat :D SPD pedals installed from new

really toying with an upgrade in the near future the bikes done around 2800 miles since i bought it April 2010 few layoffs for injury due to cricket / squash, im hitting it harder this year

toying also with cutting the stem down as it looks ugly what's the best way :?:

    Not a bad looking bike for starters - Plus you dont see many Orbea`s around if any.

    Looks like a 60cm bike ???

    I couldn't say what size it is Gazzetta67 - all i know it fits my 6ft 2" frame nicely id guess it must be around that size, ive not looking into anything just rode it since i bought it :-)

    the bike has performed well with zero issues think im due an upgrade soon as im mad keen to keep the fitness / training going and the weather helps being dry in the UK

    ride is smooth on decent roads but harsh on bad roads, not sure what the carbon forks do really ?
