    Where do you live?

    I ask that first because in the States, the Orange frames are frickin' expensive! Waay out of my price range.... I see the Patriots up at Whistler all the time and those look very cool.

    From what I understand the Sub 5 has gone through a ton of refinements that make it ride much nicer than in the past and they're now just calling it the "5". Also, the "5" is a lighter designed bike so the purposes of that bike and the Coiler differ in many ways.

    If you're looking to go bigger, then get the Coiler. If a lighter 5" travel trailbike is what you're looking for, then get the Orange. Just my uneducated (about Orange bikes, at least) opinion.
