ooo lovely, the bf is giving this bike serious thought to being his next steed ill have to show him your lovely coloured example. Sway him more to spend money so i dont feel as bad for just buying a new bike for myself lol
Nice bike! Thinking of getting rid of my 5 and getting a Alpine. What size are the chainrings on the Alpine 160s? The pivot looks a little bit higher than the 5 so it should be able to take a bigger front set-up. According to Orange the 5 is limited to 32T middle.
Thanks for the comments guys, yes the rotor is the wrong way round, I didnt notice, neither did Northwest MTB, or Orange evidently! I’ll swap it round before I tackle the megavalanche next week 😆
It doesnt climb as well as my Marin did, but I did forget to wind the forks down (I never used to with my old revs, and probably never will on this), and you can feel the exta couple of pounds in bike weight (maybe it was just the crazy humidity on Saturday?), so may swap over some of the Truvative kit for something a bit blingier and lighter when finances recover….
Clareymorris – thanks for the name suggestion. Close but no cigar, I’ll keep thinking of something!
