2009 Orbea Diem

Spanish frame builder Orbea enters the flat bar road bike market with their sexy and stylish carbon fiber Diem.
The following come straight from Orbea:
Orbea's Diem is made of equal parts: utility, technology, and style. Conceived as the ultimate in fast transportation for modern European cities, the Diem is finding its place as the premium alternative to conventional road bikes where a little more comfort and control is desired. Diem is perfectly suited for enjoying a century, challenging rough city streets, enjoying your daily commute, or pedaling to the coffee shop.
--Diem gets the same love as Orbea's top-level racing bikes-it's stylish shaping is the result of monocoque carbon fiber construction with Size Specific Nerve technology and a lifetime warranty.
--Using Size Specific Nerve technology from our flagship Orca, all five Diem frame sizes use different tube diameters and volumes. This ensures that every rider, from under 5 feet to well over 6 feet, get the same inspired ride quality.
--With an attitude for urban travel, Orbea is putting stopping power at a premium The Diem features disc brakes for consistent powerful braking-rain or shine.
--700x28 tires offer rack and fender options.
City, townie, street, metro, commuter - Whatever you call it, the Diem is in a class of its own with a style beyond description.
The bike should cost around $2200-$2400
