Also interested in headset, though imagine someone might be keen to buy that with the frame and/or fork.

Great bike! And I am very interested in this bike, especially in the frame.

But since I am a tall guy and I want to use this bike in the dirt, the frame size is an issue. Could you please post the frame size of the Orange?

Regards
Maixle

The frame is a 17".

I can take further measurements for you this evening if it would help but I guess the tallest that it could suit would be about 5'9" or 5'10" (178cm).

Hi there,

I was wondering if the bike was still for sale?

With thanks
Daza

Yes, the bike's still for sale - I'm still hoping to sell it complete. Realistically if it doesn't go by the weekend I will reluctantly split, price-up & offer the parts to those who've "dibbed" for first refusal

Thank you for your quick answer.

That is always my problem: the frame is to small.

I usually need 21" frames. And I am currently looking exactly for such a beauty between 92-94, especially Orange, Kona (Explosif), Specialized (Stumpjumper M2), and Rocky Mountain Blizzard. If you have one, just give me a brief note.

Anyhow, thank you very much for your kind help and posting the frame size.

Cheers
Maixle

Final push to sell complete - will strip & price parts at the weekend. Anyone potentially interested in parts please feel free to claim dibs here for first refusal once I've set prices.

Lovely bike shame to split...

If you do split, then I would be interested in the stem :D
