Yeah i really do like the look of the early decals. Has any one experienced the ride of both the tange infinity and the orange home brand tubes , is there a noticeable difference ?
Just out of interest can someone show me a pic of the made in halifax decal.
This was the Clockwork that I owned in 1995/96, before it was nicked at Cardiff University. I am not sure when it was built, or what tubing it was, but it was very thin tubing and as light as hell. One of the things I like about Orange bikes is the wishbone seat stays.
I bought it in late 1995 and did a complete rebuild on it. The ride was wonderful. The frame flexed as you put the hammer down and I never bothered with suspension, because I felt that it wasn't necessary. I really miss this bike and though I got a P7 as a replacement, it just wasn't the same.
No matter how bad it gets... it could always be worse.
