Really like the look of these and would like one myself! Whats the ride like the old clockworks had a very spingy feel to it i imagine the newer ones feel a bit stiffer

Looks nice James - I'd take the stickers off the rims for a more retro look 8)

A quick change upfront, now the bike has the same (riding position)feel as my Orange Five, I have fitted a shorter stalk, 90mm and an Orange Super cross bar, looks better , handles great, new set of grips and a brake service to go !

With black wheels and spokes I prefer black walls on modern bikes.

Nevertheless. Lovely bike. Quite tempted to try Orange one day...

I know what you mean, but the splashbacks seem to suit ,due to the skinny steel tubes- guess this will bike will always be a retro -meets-modern kind of a bike !
