If current Oranges are anything to go by, about 140mm travel :roll:

What would you pay? If it was a thing of true beauty by a decent frame builder with a proper geometry i could see myself spending £1000 on one (frame only), would that be enough? :(

EDIT: Having just read this, £1000 would probably be a bargain for a frame like that. Especially considering how much Patriots/Sub 6's cost RRP. Orange frames were never cheap. Ah crap, they'll never make it so i won't have to worry :D

Sounds like they are making them, and I would guess at nearer £1500 squidoolies if it is Lynsky making them :?
