    Not a ‘new one’ but an 08 stickered up as new if it helps?

    Hi Hora – its the new style one I’m interested in specifically. There don’t seem to be many about from what I can see but it looks like a fun bike to me. Hmm…

    ‘furry muff. I never got on with the Orange Five but this Patriot. Well, if the new one has the same shorter top tube as the older Patriot (shorter than the Five) its a keeper.

    yep, 2012 large = 18″
    I’m 6’2″ and can just about get away with pedalling it up with a 410mm post at full height.
    Just a bit cramped for an all-day bike but I’ve got a 20″ Five for that.
    Bloody brilliant for playing around or anything with uplift.
    In it’s element on Fort William WC track.

    yep, downhill all the way to the lake shore.
    Starts off easy and wide like that then gets techy and interesting in the lower sections.

    THREAD RESURRECTION!

    Any owners who use these mainly for uplifted or push-up riding felt the need to slacken theirs out?

    Say from 65.5 to 64.5deg head angle?

    And if so, how’d that work out?

    Ta 🙂
