Show me your orange…..
Orange Bikes please
Please no pics of orange filing cabinets :o)
Iv a ‘disco’ black alpine thats been well used so im going to get it painted in the next month or so, fairly sure im going orange but not sure to go for the bright day glow orange or normal.
Any owners got either the 5 or the alpine with decent pics you can post up?

I have a dayglo green Alpine. The colour doesn’t photo well. It’s very loud (the colour). I bought it as an ex hire so didn’t have a choice of colours. I’d probably rather have something slightly less in your face to be honest. I’ll take some photos later and see what they come out like.Posted 4 years ago
rover – 1st pic is great – 2nd a bit strange….edging towards neon !
First was taken in the evening when the neon really glows. The second was in bright sunlight, where it just tends to look like a nice bright orange. It will be interesting to get a shot of it in the snow to compare with the last picture as I think that will really show a difference between the mandarin and neon orange.Posted 4 years ago
Always said it would have to orange when i bought an alpine – dont dislike the black (and got the frame at the right money at the time) but want a spruce up, looking like neon orange for the win ;o)
Erny – £200 for a full sus, includes them stripping it, prepping etc spray, new pivots bearing etc reaming all the paint off the head tube/bb etc new decals and return postage.Posted 4 years agobenmotogp46Subscriber
It’s quite difficult when taking a photo to capture the true brightness of the Neon Orange colour. However, hope this helps.
The Five is Neon Orange (obviously) and the Crush is Carrot Top Orange for comparison.
The last photo is what you normally end up with when taking photos in direct daylight.
