    Orange bikes (merged thread)

    Who has an Orange? I'm getting my Patriot shipped to my hotel in Moab, so I can use it right out of the box. So, who rides one? I know Peaty does.

    Sweet

    That looks sweet! Must be a Seville Orange.
    I have just bought a 5 pro and I must say of all the bikes I took on a test ride, that felt the best by a mile.
    I will post a pic once I take delivery.
    I also chose the pearlescent black, which is NICE, as well as the Pimp My Ride option-
    Lets see if we can get some Orange bikes on here!

    PS I hope you both survived MOAB

    stumpy98 - Have a look at your rear wheel and see if it sits directly between the two sides of the swing arm. My mate has a 5 and his is nearly 1/4" out.

    Cheers.
    I don't care if I'm the last to the top and the last to the bottom. Just as long as I look damn good doing it!

    Size your orange bikes please!!!!!!!!!!!

    Testing a Patriot at the moment and really like it but not sure if i should go for the 16 inch or the 18 inch. I`m 5' 8", I felt alot more confident on the 18 i have to say, even though it was`nt quite as flickable through tight twistie sections. I hope to use it for general use, maybe the odd enduro aswell as trying to start some dh races.


    I`d like to hear what sizes other riders are using and for what.

    Cheers, mike.

    Hi Gary, nice bike. How do you like the fork so far? I'm getting one and want some opinions about it.

    How about a shock pump, can you use anyone, or do you need a special one?

    How easy is it to dial it to your riding style?

    Thanks

    Sorry, I am from Spain and I have problems with the english...

    You don't need a special pump for this fork, the preassure is about 100psi in all the chambers.

    I like this fork more than 36 talas.

    pues entonces te digo que la horquilla es una maravilla, el tacto es mucho más fino que la fox 36, aunque puede que no sea tán rígida, pero te aseguro que hay diferencia en el tacto a favor de la italiana...

    y encima es muy facil de regular....

    thanks.... ;-)

    la bici en general es una maravilla, en mi grupo de salidas la tenemos unas 6 o 7 patriots y hacemos rutones de 3, 4, 5 o 6 horas todo por singletrack, con duras y técnicas subidas y bajadas....

    pero es una bici para montañas duras y grandes, si montas en media montaña o caminos fáciles, es mejor tener otra bici con menos recorrido...

    Cuando cojones te has agenciado tu una AM SL? coño anda que dices algo a los colegas. Hoy he encargado yo la mia y la semana que viene la tiene. Lo que me preocupa es el cambio del recorrido ¿es accesible el dial para el cambio? lo digo porque en la TALAS al final acabas por no tocar el cambio de recorrido pero claro vas con 130 y ahora no voy a llevarla siempre a 160.

    ¿te vienes el sabado a Sierra Espuña a "desvirgar" Erosbike?

    Por cierto como esta Panterita? ya me ha contado Jarvi, dale un beso de mi parte

    Nice bike but there´s something wrong with the colour of the pics you´ve posted...
    I almost started to believe you were a queer
    Thanks God that we have Photoshop.
    Now... this is Orange.
