Quite like the 140mm 29er but a little bit of me died when I saw the aluminium 29er 'Clockwork' :cry:

I'm not feeling the love for either of them either...although I do like the purple.

The other thing is all of the new standards....142mm rear end, Shimano specific mech mounts etc. What a pain in the bum if you buy a new frame and none of your old stuff fits. Even more annoying if you've got nice stuff like an expensive 135mm rear hub.

I usually love anything Orange do, but that clockwork is nothing but cashing in on the old name.

+1, I'm afraid. It has very little to do with the old one.

I'm not a big Orange fan, but even I feel sad that they did this to the Clockwork name.
