Orange 5 Pro
Performance Pack 2 ( thompson stem, Easton carbon bars and Rockshox dropper)
Maxle rear end
Hope pack with floating rotors
Hope m4 brake upgrade
Gammut chain guard with 2X1

I'm not really into full suss bikes.

But there is something about the five. Quite fancy one myself. :lol:

What's your background in relation to suspension? Many previous bouncy bikes, and how are you finding this?
I think the last full bounce I had a shot on was a mates Turner(?) back in '97. I'm sure they have advanced somewhat since then.
