The cracking of his Titanium frame after 30,000kms was the final straw.  Unlike the average rider who can buy a bike off the shelf Henry aka the 6ft8photographer, is 6ft8 (205cm) with a 96cm measurement from BB to the top of his saddle.

Dubbed a lightweight flyer, we float up some local climbs on this ‘Wine Red – Titanium’ Orbea Orca. “Light, light, light…”  These three words resounded in our minds as we unleashed the 2024 Orbea Orca M31 on a mesmerising few weeks of cycling.
