Better than I ever thought possible. Warning, new bike content.
Mojo5pro I tested two five pro’s, a 18″ and a 17″. Obviously loved them but the build on mine is very different. The RP23 and Float 140 RLC’s feel much smoother and offer a plusher ride. The brakes (XT 203/180) are unbelievably powerful and not even bedded in, but I think the biggest difference are the wheels / tyres. I have Mavic Crossmax ST with Specialzed tubeless at low pressure. Compared to the bikes I tested it just feels faster, more agile with better grip and feel.Posted 6 years agoGary_CMember
A group of us were riding in the Lakes today, stopped for a regroup near Iron Keld, & were soon joined by what looked like the Orange Owners Club…
But it was a large group of riders from Biketreks an Orange demo day.
Not a fan myself, but the ‘Strange’ 29er looked ace !Posted 6 years ago
That’s-not-my-name I’ll keep an eye out too. We usually ride Saturdays and hit the top of Gibbet around 0830, stopping for tea at the cafe around 1030 after a few up and downs. Off to Pitch Hill next week to ride with a few mates who know Pitch, Holmbury and Leith like the back of their hand. Should be a lot of fun 😀Posted 6 years ago

Ah, the one you saw is the rig they built for sale, it was this bike that pretty much made my mind up aesthetically. I ordered mine two weeks ago but Orange couldn’t get the forks in good time, one of the lads gave them what for on Thursday and got the frame to the store inside 24h. They took the forks of the one you saw.
Mine is a little different as you can see from the list above but the Chrome colour rocks!
Good ride? I’m off to Peaslake next Sunday.Posted 6 years ago
