    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)
