8) Very distinctive! Like the simplicity of the Orange frame design with the minimal colour scheme! 8)

looks like a bike that gets upgrades as and when needed rather than a vanity of pretty picked out top end parts or continuity of groupset.

a bike for riding :)

:idea: also reminds me of the fact that Orange offered a really good mix of shimano LX/DX/XT range parts to suit the buyer back in the day.

and are you sure thats not scarborough :?:

1) Its a bike for riding not a garage queen. I think from when I first built it the frame/Front Mech/Thumb Shifter/Rear Wheel are original. There rest has been changed as required

2) Glad you like the view, Its Beach Town L.A. Thats LittleHampton, West Sussex.

3) the bike was from Bike Treks in Ambleside, as I lived in Grasmere at the time this was my LBS
