So I am REALLY upgrading my bike, but I am having some trouble with a decision. My LBS has gotten me really into the 2015 Orca. I love the handling and smooth power it provides, but I just came across a 2014 for half the price (1289 shipped)!!

Already my LBS is giving me a deal at $2500 and no tax for the 2015, but is the redesigned frame worth paying an extra $1200??

    Have you ridden both? If so, which did you like more?

    Remember - $1,200 buys a lot of cycling holidays to really use the bike and get proper fit/kit/blood transfusions/EPO/Marlboro and coffee/nice set of carbon summer wheels.

  • I'd say the 2014 frame looks miles better and real world advantage with the redesigned frame i minimal at best
