Having owned my Orange Patriot for a few years now i think i've got 'Full Suspension' out of my system.
I'll soon be selling the frame and looking to get an Alluminium (or Ti??) Hardtail again.
The Patriot has a few parts that must be transferable to the new frame:
- Rock Shox Duke XC U-Turns (upto 110mm) 1 1/8" Threadless
- Mavic XC717 Disc Rims on Hope XC Hubs
- Hope Mono Mini's 160/180mm (IS Mount)
I was looking at a GT Zasker:
But am open to suggestions.
Truth be told i'd really like another Orange, but the newest Orange bikes just don't do it for me anymore
