Original Ebay listing is as below or can be viewed at http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Orange-C-16R- ... &rt=nc
Orange C-16R Mountain Bike
Bike was used a lot for about four years and has then been in shed/garage for a lot more! It did have a service approximately four years ago when I was trying to get back into cycling, in which I was told the headset would need replacing soon. It has then been in the shed for a few more years!
Would make a good restoration project, but bike should run fine with a service and a few bits replaced.
Frame is in decent condition with a few of the usual marks and scratches you would expect, plus a slightly larger one on down tube.
Frame measures (on inside from weld to weld): Top Tube: 21", Down Tube: 23", Seat Tube: 16".
Middle of bottom bracket to top of seat tube is 19".
I'm 5'11" and found the ride position comfortable.
Rockshox Quadra 21R front suspension with 50mm travel (Original fork is also available)
Deore LX front/rear mechs, headset and hubs. Front/rear mechs & chain should be serviceable but need good clean/degrease
Rapid Fire shifters and V brakes
Wheels are 26" Mavic 230TIB (couple of spokes are loose on rear).
Tioga tyres will probably need replacing due to age/left flat.
Seatpost and stem have some surface patches of rust.
