    Russet ferns, dusky pink sunsets, snuggles in front of log fires, mists, mellow fruitfulness, conkers for goal posts… that sort of thing.

    The only thing comforting about that Orange Switch frame is knowing that I can’t be forced to buy one.

    Bit function over form, isn’t it? I like the pink colour though.

    Yep, bizness as usual.

    John Carpenter’s Assault on Precinct 13 theme, disco version.

    1) It’s not very discoey.

    2) He wasn’t a very good music maker.

    3) If that’s the disco version, what’s the dirge version sound like.

    4) Why, other than the title would you inflict that on us?

    I’m an Orange fan (and had a neon pink Alpine 160 for years) and normally like their aesthetic, but I do think that frame isn’t very pretty.  I wonder if it would look better in black (as most bikes do).  I’m interested to hear how it performs as I do fancy another one at some point.

    That is an ‘interesting’ pink colour for sure. 🙈

    I quite like the pink, but this bit –

    Are they trying to disguise it as an ebike?

    No tables or scrubs allowed on that Orange. It says so on the box.

    One of those can be fixed with a little TLC

    The Orange frame is marmite, but I like marmite.

    Could be wrong but I suspect the Orange might have grown from them trying to figure out how to stop their recent bikes from cracking? Sure it’s a storage box but it’s also effectively a massive reinforcing plate around the BB and pivots. The massive top/seattube infill piece has the same feel, “let’s just add metal til it holds together”.

    Orange solved the cracking issues 4 or 5 years ago. I’m sure some still crack, but there was a specific problem with the swingarms on the 2018-ish bikes.

    I think the design driver for them has purely been fitting in a bottle and frame storage.

    Got to agree this could look better in a less “NHS denture pink” colour (think someone on PB said that, not my gag). I’m a confirmed Orange fan so I won’t be mean about this, but if I was gonna have a bike that looked like this I’d prefer it had a motor and battery.

    How small are those brake pads!! – or does the ‘hand model’ have a massive thumb for comparison?

    Not too keen on the Orange with the stash box – or that pink……
