Loving the renaissance off the slack HT, in years gone by you went to OnOne and bought a 456 of some description….now you’ve got the new DMR, Nukeproof, Ragley, Orange and still On-One (stalwarts that they are!)….good times, I bloody love a hardtail.
Talking to a friend who works at Orange, I think they may have sold all of their first batch of P7s already – August for the next lot. Worth checking though, by sold he may have meant sold to dealers. Or I may have misheard him…….!
I’d just like to congratulate myself on not having bought one yet. Having just been in Leisure Lakes giving a mate a lift to pick his new fat bike up, I spent the entire time drooling over the new P7. It looks even better in the flesh.
I somehow made it out of there without one, despite my credit card sweating nervously the whole time. I’m not sure how long I can maintain this situation for though, if I’m honest. Tis an extraordinarily lovely thing. And I’m a big P7 fan anyway
None needed. Front mech cable can share the downtube routing and then use a Side-swing mech.
Just want to echo what this wise man says. With SRAM groupsets not having a front mech, and Shimano making their brilliant side-swing front mechs, you just need something to guide a cable down the top of the down tube, which happens to be exactly what you also need for a stealth dropper. Win, win… forget about stops.
Having recently fallen deeply in love with my Soul I’m disappointed ib myself gor havung my head turned by a P7. Always admired them from afar but those extra 2degrees on the head angle have me slavering.
Just seen one in the local shop in sterling silver. Not far off the original P7 in colour.
I had a prestige before the P7 came out and it remains one of the nicest bikes I’ve ever had. Would seriously love one of these new ones.
