    Orange All-Mountain Rigs?

    Any Burly 2012-13 All Mountain Rigs that come in orange color? I like the Titus El Guapo but I'm not sure if they are going to be producing more frames this year.

    Cheers!

    I am sure a lot of bikes come in Orange but would have thought bike type was more important than the colour

    There is a major builder out of the UK called 'Orange', not surpringly, most of their frames are painted in orange color. Keep you eyes out for one otherwise most manufacturers have appointed frames in that color. Look for a nicer turner 5-spot in orange also.
    Keep the rubber side down

    Why not buy a bike you like and get it powder coated? As long as it's done professionally a lot of brands will still honour warranties (except for the paintwork, obviously).

    Yup, but it's still one of the most successful DH frame ever made, ugly or not.

    Or buy my almost unused 07' Kona Coiler and paint it. (Still one of the best AM geometries in the last few years).

    Does not have to be mine obviously, just a good used frame will work great. Paint job, and sending shock to Push for a tune, and it is better than new...

    Yup, Orange is a quality company that makes quality bikes. May not be the best looking but they have a fantastic ride.

    Watching Nicolai's factory video was why I decided on that frame. I know that Taiwanese folks can lay out some mean light carbon, but I would rather carry a couple extra pounds of man made aluminum from Germany. Them, or Ventana is what I would rather ride. Silly reason, but whatever.

    Yup Orange may not be the prettiest (although oersonally i love the way they look!) but they ride better than most stuff out there, handmade in England from filing cabinets!
