Slightly off topic, but relevant, orange as a british brand, achieved that hard balance between ((puffs chest out)) made in britain and mass-produced, ok TANGE taiwan had a hand in there
Common enough to be known by most people interested in bikes. Like the brand quotes......ALL ROUND.
Had a clockwork and couldn't quite get on with it, not 100% sure why, i eventually put it down to wheel base vs top tube. I couldn't get it moving, it seemed to fight me back.
However, the P7 is another level. Had a go on one (captain cosmic's at sherwood pines) and was impressed by how responsive and agile it was. Must keep looking for one.
Overall a good british production considering the might of the USA and japan with their produce. Orange still going too.
