Boggo basic really. Got shot of the cast iron cart wheels that it came with, and the solid rubber tyres in favour of Nobby Nic and Superstar | Stan’s tubeless. Favoured carbon handlebar, Reverb, plus a Tioga Spyder saddle for no other reason than it looks daft. 50mm stem. Loads of stickers ’cause the finish isn’t that good.
XC for me then. Can’t quite compete with the 26lb weight, but 29lb seems fine for what it is. Quite taken with it, but then my first proper bike was a Clockwork two decades ago so I’m a bit of a fan of the brand.Posted 4 years agojimwMember

After purchasing my first Orange Five frame and transferred all my components over to it I’m wondering what setup other people have gone for (more Enduro Or more XC).
Please show and tell all….
I’ll go first;

Muddyground your five is stunning mate, especially like the tyre graphics in-line with the rim stickers, nice touch. I’d say that’s pretty light for what you’ve got on there. Not too sure what the stem is doing there though 😉
Now considering the dropper post, which should make it heavier.Posted 4 years ago
Had the stem lying around, so used it. Dropper post + Tioga saddle = same mass as the standard post and saddle. Standard components I am sure are made out of pig iron. I only got the dropper as CRC had them for £130 at Christmas. Not sure it is essential. I had Magura forks on my Pace – lovely things.Posted 4 years ago06awjuddMember
I’ve had my Five for about 2 months or so now. I use it for DH, AM and XC and I’m going to race enduro after my exams are done. It is a slightly more beefy setup then the standard, but not nearly as heavy or bad at climbing as an AM.
It weighs around 29 lbs, but 27 is doable with lighter tyres I reckon.
Here’s a pic (it may not work, it usually doesn’t!):
Link if it won’t work Piccy
Took Five months, but it is pretty much spot on – would have preferred Marzo/RS suspension, but couldn’t find any 2nd hand for a reasonable price.
Anyway here is the spec – it cost around £1900 (second hand parts / big discounts):

30lbs exactly on digital luggage scales from Argos. It should sneak under 30 with the change of saddle! Not changing for the sake of weight though, was just chuffed to find out my favourite saddle was back in production!Posted 4 years agonickwatsonMember
Mine is built up slightly more on the XC side …

I’ve not properly weighed it, but using the unscientific method of getting on the bathroom scales with the bike, then just me on the scales, it was 12.1kg (26.7lb).
P.S. Yes, that is a gaping hole in the fence.Posted 4 years ago
At 60 odd quid it’s a cost effective way of saving some weight.
Unless you go to the great God of cheapness that is eBay, where it was £20. Rather unsurprisingly it is a harsh ride and would be a big fail on any other bike – but I seem to spend so much time standing up it’s actually not that bad.Posted 4 years agoorena45Subscriber

32 Float CTD forks.
Hope SP pro2 & stans crest rims.
2×10 2012 XT.
XT (I think) ally carrier discs (they suck).

Thomson post and 50mm stem.
Answer pro taper bars.
Dual chain device (ethirteen I think it was).
Specialized romin ti saddle (seating bliss!).
I’d like to fit a rubber queen on the rear and change the forks to some 34 floats (reduced to 150mm travel) but there’s not much more worth adapting. Its already far better than I am!Posted 4 years agomudchuteMember
£80 courtesy of Mrs Mudchute. She’ brill 🙂
They do a carbon railed version that needs guide ropes just in case the win picks up!
Its a great bike though, inspires me to get fitter in order to do it justice. If only Orange did a carbon version. A 24lb five would be significant in the mtb world…Posted 4 years agopbooker1995Member
