Just thought that I would grab some shots of my collection of 'Orange' saddles before I fit them to my 'Orange' bikes :D

Nice, I've got the orange/red one; slightly worse condition though.
Do you know what year they were available?

Thats a great collection :D

I too have the red one, there was a couple for sale on here recently that sold very quickly.

I've seen your satin black Orange today whilst searching on here for Orange discussion threads the one with your name on the top tube :D

I had one of the red ones - my ex-wife bought it for me so it must have been 1998/99

Cheers for the nice comments,

They are great saddles, made by Velo, very comfy and quirky with the detailing, think they came out 96/97 Onwards so may just fall out of the pre 97 era, but who cares, they look great and when fitted just give the bike a great finishing touch :D

Yep thats my Black Satin 93 Clockwork, It has an early Orange Enduro Saddle fitted to it at the mo :)

And I was meant to finish off by saying it's a lovely looking bike :-D

Edit - here's my scruffy (patina) enduro
