    I've a lot of respect for orange. They make some nice riding bikes by all account. However compared to a nic I'd say it's the orange that's overpriced. Some of their welding is shocking. Had a 222 in here a while back and I honestly thought it was a cut and shut...then I saw another one! Also, while they must be getting the angles right as they're well liked, they're still bog standard single pivots. If they were 300 cheaper then fair play

    Tell you what though Dipper, Steve Wade can definitely ride! I definitely had him covered doonhall, even him on a 224 with totems but for the love of god the guy is in his 55 and he royally spanked my ass uphill, even on a bike that weighed 39lbs.

    Orange's neon pink frame color is pretty cool. However, when it comes to looks, Nicolai is clearly ahead: more regular welds and straight tubes

    Anyway, both certainly make great bikes.

    I;ve not actually witnessed it but am sure ours is no different other than the addition of the RADO at the end for final tuning.

    The difference? Nicolai have a MUCH longer lever for FMXTB frames... (I've seen it)
