- The new Orange Alpine 160
Had a quick hours blast after our Biketreks demo day a couple of weeks ago on the RS version. My impressions were that it did climb better than the older model, partly thanks to slightly lower weight, but also in part to a lighter, shorter fork (shorter axle to crown than 36).
Still went downhill like a beast though, so all good really. Makes a Five with big 160mm forks redundant imo.
We’ve just received our first bikes for the shop so if you’re in the Lakes, pop in and have a look.
(Yes, I sell Orange’s for a living. If it helps, I prefer the Alpine to a Nomad. Or feel free to disregard my opinion altogether!)Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Looks nice from that angle. From the side, it looks like this:
Which I reckon is pretty bloomin ugly- bits and lines everywhere, none of it really comes together, it’s like a cross between an old Turner DHR and a half-grown labrador. But I bet it rides bloody well.Posted 4 years ago
