Other info:This was an Ex Demo bike from Orange, as featured in MBUK, Sept '07 issue #215, it won the test alongside the Cannondale Prophet 2

Chain, Cassette, Middle and outer rings, grips & DTC rear tyre are virtually new, only 2 rides (50 miles total) since fitting those items

The bike has been maintained by a professional mechanic (yours truly!) and everything works as it should. No slop/play in any of the bearings

The frame does have a few marks as you would expect on a 2007 bike, but no dents, plenty of pics in the link to my Flickr below the pics above

Freehub body does have some marks as you would expect with a ProII freehub body, the SLX cassette replaced an XT cassette

No marks on the fork stantions, or on the shock, all work as they should

In very good overall condition and full working order, just add pedals for an excellent trail bike

£1250 posted to your door.

I will not be splitting this bike for parts, it will be sold as a complete bike (minus pedals)

UK Mainland postage only, or collection from the N.E.Lincolnshire area, would also consider meeting the buyer, depending on distance.

Wouldn't you like to know..

...Oh ..wait you do want to know ;)

It's an upgrade from the standard sped, the upgrade is the Thomson seatpost & stem, the carbon bars and it used to have the Fizik Gobi saddle, but I changed that as I didn't like it.

Std spec was Orange branded stem, bars, seatpost and SDG Bel Air saddle IIRC

Original price was £2350 in 2007, now in 2011 this bike costs £3049.99!
