If you had to give up your Orange 5…
I wanted to swap mine for a Mojo HD 160 but it will not take my Hammerscmidt, the ISCG tabs are not compatible apparently, bugger.Posted 6 years ago
*sits a waits for the what the fek are you running Hammerscmidt for anyway comments*
So purchased a DH monster which means I am way over biked and get laughed at all the time! 😆KingofBiscuitsMember
Love my Five. It’s an ’07 model with all the bells and whistles and has been upgraded over the last 4 years (QR15 forks, Flows, Tech X2s, etc.)
I’ve been thinking recently about buying a new Five but it felt heavier in a side by side comparison with my current bike. I’m also aware the angles have changed that makes it less of an all rounder and more of a DH sled. Still willing to give it a test ride though. Be rude not to.
The bike that interests me the most though and the one I want to demo is the Yeti ASR 5 Carbon.Posted 6 years agotonydMember

A friend of mine recently bought a standard ASR-5, it’s a rocket! I’d seriously consider replacing my Five with one of those if I had to – yes I realise they are very different bikes but was very impressed. Be interested to see how well they cope in the rough/steep stuff.
ETA: Sorry Molgrips, that Kona looks silly (IMHO of course!)Posted 6 years agotoby1Member
I have to replace my 5 …. but why, what did it do wrong 🙁
Hah, have to admit, it’d take me a while to think of something to replace it with, it’s pretty much the best thing I ever rode (admitted I’m not the kind of guy to chuck my leg over other peoples rides) so it’s not like I rode everything out there, I’m just happy with it as it is 🙂Posted 6 years ago
I bought mine to replace a nicked Cake as a lightweight XC machine for which it was obviously not ideal. Of course now I appreciate it for what it is and it’s fairly light after I sorted it out. However since I own a bigger bike something lighter and more XC ish would probably be ideal. But only slightly since it’s rocky where I live 🙂Posted 6 years ago
