Orange delivered a 5 to Kudu cycles for my mate to test.
Mate is 6ft 4 and I am 6ft. I found it fitted great. We went riding in the hills above Hawse, Swaledale for the day.
Give Mark a bell and he can arrange a bike/s for you to try. Very helpfull/knowlegable chap on first meeting
He ordered a blue one, painted on Tues/Wed and is waiting a delivery date.
Both my mate and I ride Dawgs, he 20 and me 19. I also at 6ft found the 18 just a little short for ordinary trail use. Rode an 18 Coiler in Verbier where it was better suited.
If I was to buy another full susser a 5 is now top of the list having tested and discounted a 575.
The 5 is a really stiff bike and can be really hustled along. Would nt say it is any better or a great step better than the Dawg I ride but is just a bit stiffer. The 20in just seemed right for us, it was set up for my mate so was a bit hard on air pressures due to his extra wieght but very nice bike all in all. We really need to go back and ride the route we took again in the dry though, it was absolutely chucking it down for the 4hrs we were out. Some bike test?
