is there any difference between the 5 frame and the 5 am frame. the orange website gives different geometry (and not only angles) but as a frame only there only seems to be one option.
Views on orange 5
Drome the only difference is that the 5 AM comes with a rear axle.
I think if you want the frame only you will have to add £100.00p
for the rear axle.
What a strange thread.
Thanks Grantway. I asked cause in the geometry tables the top tube length is different for the 5 and the 5AM, implying they're not the same frame. Must be a typo.
Why didn't you just say that then? Obviously I'm not talking about the structural folds, but the creases around the radius changes, what you're calling wrinkles (as if wrinkle and crease meant different things).
Northwind Its actually called wrinkling its what happens
to the material when trying to form a cone or a metal dish like shape.
The thinner the material or the more you push it the more you see it.
Wrinkling is acceptable as you cant do nothing about it.
Not a by-product but known as wrinkling.
I'm not doing this any more, since almost every line in your last post is wrong, but you won't listen if I correct you. Enjoy your day
LOL Northwind Me no more has you have exhausted every word or meaning to
a proccess or result of.
Have a nice week.
Sorry mate take back the wrinkling Mis read
your post regarding radius.
Possibly selling my 18" 2008 Five frame soon.
To replace with either a Blood, an Alpine 160 or another Five.
For what I want from a mountain bike in a size range that fits me (I seem to sit between sizes on a lot of brands) I find it very hard to fault.
Sure there are minor niggles here and there, but as an overall riding experience it's great.
