as some of you know i'm an orange fan!!!
you could go for a p7 s or a prestige s with a few upgrades, they're sort of retro style being steel, most shops would get rid of the tora forks in favour of something a little better for a bit of extra cash! and i think both have the performance pack upgrade options of £150 extra and you get a thompson post and stem and a easton carbon bar and a gobi saddle, that lot rrp's for about £320 and you can order it with the bike for £150, seems like a no brainer to me.
so p7 s +performance pack is £949 and then add a bit for a better fork maybe
or prestige s + a fork upgrade and a bit of xt here and there would put you about a grand
or the new evo8 if you want aluminium, £949, nice looking bike.
so many options!!!
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
