Actually I have 2. Does the rear dropout on the Orca Silver's non drive side have aluminium bonded to the frame where the rear wheel inserts into the dropout? I'm just a bit concerned about clamping in the rear wheel to an all carbon dropout. Is my concern justified? I realize that the fork is all carbon. Also looking at the Bianchi siempre pro which seems to have some aluminum bonded to the dropout, but I favor the Orbea cause the geometry is almost identical to my Lynskey R330 but can't imagine the ride difference between them despite the similar geometry. My other question is about the orbea orca bronze. I can't find anything stating that the rear derailleur hanger is replaceable - is it?
Thanks,
Steve

the rear derailleur hanger is replaceable. you should not worry about clamping a carbon dropout, we clamp our carbon bars and seat posts without any worry and you should not worry about that.
