    Im just in the process of ordering a 5 pro,with upgrades,& wondered whose doing the best deals if any !!!,i have spoke to a couple of dealers,one will give 5% off,the other just wants to give 2 free services,well i can do that,i like the rest of us,are more bothered about saving money…thx in advance.

    Buy a bike from a different brand, you’ll get alot more for your cash.

    You’ll never get much off an Orange as the markup is no where near as good as the other brands. Sunset usually have the best deals on them.

    give Sunset in Cardiff a buzz – they can usually do something

    Its a sensible answere surely!

    I thought Orange 5’s were for those with more money than sense. Specialized/Giant/Trek/Canyon/Rose all offer a great spec for the cash, backed up with a long warranty.

    Rob @ bike active will probably do a great deal on a five. He did for me and a mate a while back. When i was looking around again recently he was the cheapest too i think.

    No Probs. I called in today to buy a new spoke and saw the deals. You don’t normally get discounts like that on current bikes. I’m actually waiting for a Black Gold Five from Sunset bikes. Might have to cancel and order a standard Five Pro from Steels πŸ˜‰ Its a great LBS by the way.

    Why make such ridiculous comments. ❓ I tested five bikes including options from Specialized when I bought my Five (plus I’d had a Specialized for years). The Five suited the riding style I was after better than anything else I tried. The OP has made his choice…

    Reedspeed I bought mine from my LBS and got a cracking deal. Plus they look after me very well. It’s got to be the best way forward. Do a deal and benefit from a good relationship with them.

    He probably thinks that because a bike has better spec it will ride better.

    He’s the one missing out, don’t let it bother you.

    I have noticed he pops up on every Orange thread posting crap.

    You havent got one – cos you cant afford it!

    I wish I did have one, they look really nice, but Β£400 for a service? 16 Raleigh Grifters will do me.

    Perhaps you should follow your own advice and apply it to your comments too?

    I spoke to sunset today and they will call back on monday with an offer of an improved deal. So ill wait and see what they come up with. I must say in fairness to sunset that the chap was fantastic on the phone. He understood my point (i explained the 20% offer) and hes going to try his best to sort me out. Great customer service. I really want the black gold five but with the brakes and hubs off the pro. Picky i know.

    Just checked their website and there are no Oranges on there, are they just doing orders instore or over phone on Oranges?
    The Trek Fuel EX9 looks a steal at 20% off as well.

    Why didn’t you order 32 RLC’s? They suck with 160mm forks (sorry but its true, I’ve had both)

    Mullers – Not sure why no Orange bikes on the Steels website, but they have them in store and will order whatever you want.
    Regarding the spec of the black gold – i want the rp23 shock and the maxle. But add them to a pro and its an extra Β£200. IMO the pro should have the rp23 as standard as it used to have. I’m a bit on the heavy side so I need the maxle. You cant change the spec of the black gold to get the hope brakes/hubs.

    Ahh I see. Couldn’t you just get a black and gold, flog the wheels and brakes, then buy the ones you want or will that work out a lot more?
