can't find a orange alpine 160 frame

if it’s like the proto Steve W was riding in Verbier, fancy multi-position-style shock mount and kinked rear end for heel clearance (so possibly wider axle format)?
with a raised chainstay on the Alpine, I wouldn’t have thought heel clearance would be an issue? any other changes you saw?Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

You should see the heel rub on my 224! Surprised it’s an issue but it must be for some folks.
The Five 29 is 142 isn’t it, would be nice to see that rolled out further.Posted 4 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
It was 26″, noticeably kinked rear stays (fugly IMHO but people say that about oranges anyway) – I need heli tape to stop heel rub on my ’10 160 as I am slightly duck feet and that’s with a 135mm rear. Didn’t scrutinize it closely but only other obvious change was the main shock mount which looked drilled for multiple positions ala nicolai presumably to allow head angle changes.Posted 4 years ago
