Broken Orbea repairable...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

It's just a chip, and it has a warranty. Would make a good winter project for someone who won't mind not riding in the summer.

Ah! Thanks for the clarification. Not my style, but a damned handsome frame!

It is repairable, but cost is about $800

I wouldn’t bother.

If tat matters to you.
