Very nice, you must have been busy with those. I know these Oranges are modern but they are a fantastic ride.

Nice to meet you! :D

hi :D nice bikes... what's the 224 like? what do you use it for? most of the ones iv'e seen have RS Boxxers and a 9spd set up but I'm guessing by the saddle height and dual ring you ride it up as well as down?

sorry for the questions but i'm in the market for a 'big' bike and that looks ace 8)

aye a it goes up extremly well for a for a 8.5" travel downhill bike just put the pro pedal on and ur ready for the up n when ur at the top take the pro pedal off n enjow the down hill mode. It will never go up like a say a zaskar! but it does it bloody good.its worth the wee bit extra waight on the up for when ur on the way back downs.i mostly go to glentress, carron valley and laggan which are all x country tracks and i also do inners and iv done fort bill and the bike took it all in its stride even with the 66s on the front.the 224 does it all man. When i got the bike it was 9spd and had boxxers but iv pretty much changed every thing on it.havent really used the subzero since.so i would highly advise getting one.it wont be as plush as a multi link system but it has fautless reliability and the swing arm bearings are only 30 bucks.but some of them dont have the guides for the front mech.mines didnt but its an easy fix.u wont regret it.
