Mines Alu - pg 20 of the 'Show us your Citrus' thread:

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=33003&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=285

Changed a bit since this pic: different wheels, syncros stem and brake lever/shifters instead of downtube. Thinking of selling for a smaller frame if I find something I like first, it's a 60cm and I reckon i'd be slightly better suited to a 58.

Perhaps not so luvverly, but probably an equally scarce bit of steel - an Orange 'Formula' in lugged 753 - flat-barred by me otherwise original.

Mr K

The Formula is really lovely but that straining rear mech makes me wince.

Loving LGFs Dynamo too.

Sheesh - I thought I'd mistakenly posted on MTBR circa 2006/7 aka 'The Rumpfy Years'... :roll: :lol:

ta - they're all lovely.

but, are you all really tall?

i'm a road bike - size sceptic though
on a 54 at the minute and thats effective (it's a Kona cross bike) and i'm 5'11'' and never been too keen on the high top tube look / feel.

Mr.K and Mr. Ed are both unfeesably tall but only at certain angles and after 3pm.

I'm comfortably riding 59cm at 6'1" so my citrus might be a bit small.

Some nice-looking frames there. I had no idea they did so much in the way of road frames and for so long (I vaguely remember the Roadie-O in their online catalogue about 9-10 years ago, which seemed to sink without trace in a year or so). Were they made on-site at Halifax or outsourced?

I would kill for a Roadie-O. They were in the '99 brochure and Stif once offered me one, but I never saw one in the flesh, ever.

In fact, the Dynamo on this thread was the first Orange I saw in real life and it turned out to be f-a-a-a-a-r too big for me.
To Le Grand Fromage: please don't sell the bike, it breaks my heart to keep seeing it get passed around...
