    I want it to be comfy so bad... but I know it's not.

    NOS Zipp 400s for my Cannondale r700. Never been glued / braked on

    That cassette makes me happy :3

    Out of interest, what are the problems you’ve encountered?

    Manufacturing QC issues mostly.

    Hydro lines crushed during assembly, over-torqued drive unit mounting bolts, laughably crooked post mounts, FHB dust caps backing out until the cassette seizes, speedometer cables that are too short and tear at the the connector as a result, frames designed around boost 20x2.4" tires where the derailleur/chain STILL rubs the sidewall of the tire in the largest cog, etc etc.

    Aside from the massive chainring, looks great!

    I guess it doesn't really matter at the end of the day.

    As for adjustability, LvH found a better solution, no doubt more money than Orbea wanted to spend on said bike.

    Why odd?

    Flexy stem on a light-cargo bike is an odd choice.

    I've seen one of these in person... Outside of the budget-minded build kit and the odd decision to use a quill stem, it seems alright.

    Saw this. Considering building one up with a Rohloff myself...

    Be weary of long-cage derailleurs on 20" wheels with big tires - they have a tendency to rub the sidewall of the tire in the largest cog.

    Don't waste your money on used batteries - they generally have a 3-year lifespan to begin with, and you have no way of knowing how a used one was handled by the previous owner.
