There's something quite special about being able to design your own bike - especially when it costs absolutely nothing. \nYou read that right. You can custom paint your brand new 2023 Orbea Wild and 2023 Orbea Rise in millions of combinations and it wont cost you a penny above the normal RRP!\nLets take a look at the options for 2023 Orbea Wild and 2023 Orbea Rise MyO bikes and how E-Bikeshop offers the easiest, best and fastest way to get your MyO bike. \nTLDR; We have good levels of remaining allocations for MyO bikes with short lead times and the full list is near the bottom of this article...\n \nWhat is Orbea MyO?\nThe Orbea MyO is Orbea's own customisation tool which allows riders to not only custom paint their new bike, but also adjust some of the specification to their preferred component or to better suit their riding needs. This can either be done via Orbea directly (with the bike shipped to their chosen dealer), or directly through your Orbea dealer. We'll cover how to do this a little later on. \nNot only are many of the component swaps free, those which are upgrades above the normal specification are only charged at the price difference. \nAt the end of the process, you can export your new bike as a PDF to keep or take to your dealer to order. \n \n \nWhat can you change in Orbea MyO? \nPaint Every Orbea MyO Wild and Rise bike is hand painted with incredible care and precision.\n\nEach of these models is actually made of at least half a dozen different painted "sections" and the colour of these can all be chosen from their customisation charts, allowing potentially millions of combinations and riders to choose something understated, lairy, bright, bold but always unique. This part is completely free. \nWe "painted" this demo version in E-Bikeshop colours for this article.\n \nSpecificationAs well as being able to paint the bike how you like, you can also change the specification.\n\nWheels and tyres, bars and brakes, seat posts, batteries, displays and suspension can all be swapped out from the bikes standard specification and replaced with Orbea's own suggested replacements. Not only does this allow much greater flexibility for riders, but they also only charge the difference in price between the standard and the upgraded component. Some are even free!\nOn the 2023 Carbon (M) Rise variants, you can also elect to switch the battery from 360Wh to the new, larger 540Wh version. \n \n \nWhy should you choose MyO over a stock bike?\nWith some manufacturers having a market share so big that you can easily find half a dozen people at your local bike park all riding the same bike in the same colour, Orbea MyO offers their riders something truly special and unique. \nAs well as being able to express yourself through your custom designed bike, it offers a great value tool for specification changes. \n\nLots of riders have their own preference of components and no manufacturer can account for all rider preferences. With the Orbea MyO tool, components like suspension often have three or more choices, allowing riders to find something better suited to their own riding style or component preference. \nNo more having to buy the shock you want in advance of receiving your bike in the hope you can flog the stock one on eBay for at least half it's RRP! \nWith some manufacturers having such a huge market share that its not uncommon to rock up to your local trail centre and find handfuls of people riding the same bike in the same colour you can be quietly confident that your bike, is yours. \n \n \nHow do you get your Orbea MyO bike? \nThere are two ways to get your hands on a brand new 2023 Orbea Wild or 2023 Orbea Rise through the MyO platform. \nThe hardest\/longest way.. Anyone can order a MyO bike at any time via the Orbea website. You simply select the model you want to start with as the "base", select a size, and then complete your specification of paint and parts.\nThe downside is that all Orbea bikes must be shipped via a dealer. They don't deal "direct to consumer" because they want to make sure all of their bikes are handed over or delivered to the customer in nothing but absolutely perfect, ready to ride condition with a full handover and set up where possible.\nThe reason this is the most difficult and will come with the longest lead times is that you will always be joining the back of the queue. If (and its a big "if", because MyO bikes sell out quickly at the start of the model year) you can get one, you can often expect lead times of between 6 and 12 months to get your bike. It's still worth it, but there's a better way... \n\nThe easiest\/fastest way.At E-Bikeshop, we pre-order "MyO frame blanks" at the start of the year - something which very few dealers bother with. This means that we always have bare MyO frames waiting\/pre-programmed into production. As well as speeding up the order\/arrival process, we can also ship them anywhere in the world, so its not even necessary to have a dealer close by to get yours. \nIn short, if you didn't already order one at the start of the year, E-Bikeshop is likely to be the fastest way to get your new 2023 Orbea Wild or 2023 Orbea Rise via the MyO platform. \n \n \nWhat MyO options do E-Bikeshop have left for 2023? \nDespite already being half way into model year 2023, we still have a small portion of our pre-ordered MyO frames left, but time is running to supply a specification for them. We must supply 45 days notice of their specification prior to their expected production and shipping date. \nHere is our list of 2023 Orbea MyO frame blanks, available for immediate specification and their current build date (they would be expected to land with us 1 week later).
