Still can't get over the nashers' '94 UNUSED STX!!! Salivating over the keyboard..... I would sell my mother for that! :lol:

The Gringo's well ffit too. In fact all bikes on the thread are. I've had GT's, Konas, Marins, a Scott (shh) and a Peugeot back in the day but never had an Orange, more's the pity. They must ride really well, seem to have loads of Orange fans here.

One of these days.. :roll:

So just how many Oranges in the world have Pace forks on them?

Is it the 'just down the road' effect or are/were they the best forks out there? 8)

......excellent :D Loving the photoshop creativity too. The standard continues!

The BOTM really has been the benchmark for my new "O" build. My orange/white fade has just come out of paint and it's not 100% what I'd hoped for. That fade is not easy without airbrushing.
Out of interest/ despair!!.... which company repainted the re - edition clockwork? May have to bite the bullet and get it re-done. Shame, it's spot on apart from the fade and only cost me a donation to Essex Air Ambulance! :D

Cheers all.

bob jackson did the paint on the new ones but it's "wet" paint so isn't very tough, i've got a few chips in mine but the finish is great generally.

Cheers jonnyboy :D
Mine is a wet paint finish too. Do you reckon they'd just airbrush my fade for me or am I looking at a full - on repaint? It hasn't had any lacquer coats yet.:?

Got all the bits. Was hoping to be up and riding in a couple of weeks but had a set back on the graphics too. :( .... got the tif files sorted for an A4 printed sheet and no - one seems to stock that clear, adhesive backed paper. The work order won't be here for another 6-8 weeks :(

boy" :?: "boy
