It all started around 1990 with the purchase of a his and hers Claud Butler Pagan in purple.God that bike was heavy but pretty bomb proof, we even took them on honeymoon to Verbier in 1993. I then started to get into MTBs in a bigger way, I rode a friends Kona and couldnt believe the difference to my Claude. The out on a long ride I tried another friends Orange P7 and that was it, I sold the Claude and set about finding a P7 when after a while the Aluminium O came up, I travelled up to Yorkshire and bought it from a young lad that was racing so the bike had plenty of upgrades on it. As you see it now its pretty much as it was then other that I cracked the middleburn cranks so replaced with Suntour as all I could afford and the rear mech went through the back wheel so that was replaced.
Current Rides - Orange Aluminium O, Orange P7 work in progress, Orange E3
WANTED - More time to ride please
