That's a nice looking bike. Orange do seem to have moved away from the XC stuff in the last few years but there more heavy duty hard tails are ace. I reckon my old Sub Zero was one of the best bikes I ever had until it cracked.

Wierdly, I love their hard tails but don't like their bouncy bikes.

thought i'd up date this thread again.

i've stripped the bike down and tomorrow it's going to the painters, the paint isn't that bad as such but the fork is now dead and i figured while i look for a new fork i might aswel drop it in at the paint shop

looks rather sorry for itself though now, i will be going for a closest possible match i can on everything sticker and paint wise.

Orange sold me the correct sticker set themselves last year. They may have some more.. Although they are over lacquer ones.

As you're looking for a new fork, how do you think one of these would look? Too much orange?

thanks for thinking of me but i can't out a german fork on a british (yes i know it's made in taiwan) frame, it's just not cricket.

leaning towards an rc31 440mm a-c, we'll see, i might end up with another pair of rockshox
:D
