Just wanted to share yesterdays high after I built up my new Orange Five. FANTASTIC - put Talas 140's on the front and climbs like a dream. Was surprised at the lack of bob on Pro-pedal (almost none). My old Marin MV 07 was too short - (on sale in the classifieds if anyone is interested ) after I bought it as a mint ex-demo rather hastely.
With the 140mm travel on the back it descends like a dream. Can't wait to go to Afan in March (stag doo renunion) and doing the Kielder avalanche on it.
Here's a piccy - it's lovely (in my opinion) - just thought I would share it with you Some may disagree
