First, while there is a range of standard stems that can go on this bike, Orbea thinks a –6° stem is a nice cosmetic fit. The bike is really made not to have stem spacers underneath. It isn’t a superbike in that sense, but in a way
it acts like a superbike because of a stem height that doesn’t want
to be changed (Orbea is quite fine with changing the stem’s length).
Still, this wouldn’t disqualify calculators, like the HX/HY calculator
on the Slowtwitch website, from working fine for this bike.
The second problem is the relative obscurity of the Visiontech TriMax aerobar that goes on this bike. It’s a fine bar. But it’s not widely sold.
[very technical paragraph!] The way the process works (or ought to work) in a dynamic fit protocol, if an Ordu is a bike admired by the customer, that aerobar is placed on the fit bike. A fit is executed, HX/HY is read off the fit bike, ported into the Slowtwitch calculator, and the stack and reach of the frame is the output. The front end of the bike (stem length, aerobar pad pedestals) are changed just like salt and pepper in the stew, until the right taste (a stack and reaching matching one of the Ordu sizes) is achieved. But let’s face it: This aerobar isn’t in a lot of fit studios. [/very technical paragraph!]
Not only did I lose three-fourths of everyone reading this in the paragraph above, I lost two-thirds of the bike fitters reading this in the paragraph above. Such is our industry.
