Had a tootle down to Ward Jackson Park with my two boys this aftey. A nice dry Autumnal day here in Hartlepool...
This rides superb. Very sprightly and light. I can see why it was a very good XC race model in its day... I’m very happy with how this build has turned out.... :D

Hello

I really like what you have done with your frame.

I have just bought an Aluminum Elite (1993) myself and I am wondering if I should reassemble it as in 1993 or make it a single-speed single chainring.

In any case you have made a nice restoration, well done!

Thank you....

I’d restore with gears as close to 93 as you can. These bikes ride amazing!

I’ll stick on a full build list tomorrow so you can see the closer details...

I am thinking of getting attached to the black and polished aluminum color scheme, I have the parts for that and also the ShimanoXT M737 M738.

I am really amazed by the lightness of the frame and the fork

This is one of the best frames Orange ever did IMO.

Really loving the final look you've achieved.

Hats off to you Sir.
