    I thought about getting one for winter fun but I bought an ice hockey stick instead 😉

    Do they sell orange5 to non audi owners? (With a roof rack 🙄 )

    I don’t and none of my riding buddies do either.

    One has some old oddball patriot with different travel and geometry apparently, which makes it more like a burly 5, but it’s not a 5.

    Only know one chap who drives an Audi, but he’s got a specialized.

    That chap needs to part exchange his specialized to an orange 5 😛

    Guilty as charged here: 09 Five and an A4 Estate…and I ride in the Surrey Hills. Sorry. 😳

    Ditto lenhankie, Orange 5 (08 model), A4 Avant, used to live in Surrey. However not in IT so I don’t qualify for the full stereotype.

    Interesting brake lever positions…… And shorten those hoses? You trying to snare wild animals?

    there be bears in Rossendale

    Leaver position is an ed oxly idea and works for me

    Yeah, nowt wrong with those lever positions.

    Works for me too. Although it was Jedi who sold me the idea.

    I do, a 2009 in Mandarin Orange (also have a Soul). Don’t ride in Surrey Hills much these days, but Swinley yes.

    No Audi (used to have an S3) but I do have an old 3 series estate touring.

    No fancy coffee machine, but I do have one of those stove top percolator jobbies that I bought when I worked in Spain 13 years ago.

    I do work in IT.

    Am I cool or am I a tool?

    Orange Five for me and the Missus (amongst other bikes), Merc estate, DeLonghi coffee machine, ride/live in the Surrey hills but I don’t work in IT. Damn just missed the STW stereotype – must work harder on that for 2013!

    Subaru driving, tea drinking university employee and my Five is from 2006, but it’s a start 🙂

    I own a 5 but drive a Passat (which is close to a Naudi) No coffee machine & I know nowt about I.T. I ride mainly Yorkshire Dales, Moors, Lakes, Scotland. I’ve had it 3 years & it’s been to one trail centre.

    So, does anyone meet all four stereotypes? ( Five, Audi, Gaggia and career in IT)

    Premier Icon beej

    Just the Audi, Gaggia and IT here. Does an Anthem get close to a stereotype?

    Premier Icon Sandwich

    Right do Sub 5 ‘s count?

    If so I’m living the dream.
    Audi – yep
    Rancilio coffee machine – yep (chi chi beans from niche roaster also)
    Job involves company IT in a BOFH capacity.
    Sub 5 from 2003
    Missing rides in the Surrey Hills.

    Close.

    Orange 5
    C5 estate (citroen)
    Instant coffee (can’t stand coffee snobs)
    oil industry tech
    ride Scotland mainly (keep yer Surrey hills and IT jobs)

    So we found the orange posterboy.. “Sandwich ” it is :P… Can you post photo please..

    As for the rest .. You need to partexchange car to audi, posh coffee machine.. Ditch your current job and find IT related job in jobcentre. 😛

    @beej .. Sorry mate, you need to partexchange your anthem with this guy.. http://www.pinkbike.com/buysell/1248151/
    He probably sold his audi car, switch drinking tea and bored with his IT job.. Hence selling his orange5 🙄

    No Fox Fork, no job in IT, I can’t drive. 8)

    Five – check (2012 custom jobbie, 1×9, 150mm Revs, Maxle rear end, Reverb etc – all standard IT bod spec)
    IT worker – check
    Gaggia – no, Krups. And I don;t particularly like coffee anyway. Cup of tea please.
    Audi – no. I do own a VAG estate though.

    So nearly there. I’ve fancied trying a Five for a long time – after all, that much hype can’t be wrong. The 2011 (?) model with the slacker angles and dropper post compatible seat tube pretty much made my mind up I had to try one so got a ridden 4 times 2012 frame only for a good price and bunged all my parts on from my beloved Blur 4X. In the short time I’ve had it, the Five is much the better bike and I flippin loved that Blur.

    Plus I need to own a Five – its compulsory for people living within a mile radius of the factory.
