Like you do see loads of bad Five reviews? I must have missed those ones
Did I say the Five had bad reviews?
Its just the Prophet has outstanding reviews across the majority of the mtb press, is a comparable product and costs a damn sight less.
Unless the OP has 'patriotic' issues or some other irrational reason to spend his money of an arguably poor value product then choosing the Five over the Prophet would fall into the category of 'fool and his money'.
Of course were the price of the Five to drop to one more comparable with the Prophet...
Oh, I just noticed, the term Crack-n-fail has appeared, how predictable. Of course Orange's history of poor warranty support for its many failed frames is just ignored as the kind of quaint thing you get from a handmade British product producing company.
For the full house MrNutt you could mention how Orange bikes are the only bike that could have propelled Steve Peat to the top of the DH scene.
