    Orange Ms Isle

    Hi All, Have been a member here for years but was out of the bike scene for a while. Am back again and I have refreshed my Orange Ms Isle that I have had since new (around 2001). All paint/decals are original. I know some may say keep original but I want it to ride a bit more “modern” and...

    My First Orange MrO Update 20/9/12

    This bike looks amazing, bet it's great to ride. I have an Orange Msisle in original 'Orange' and it looks the nuts, so my vote would be the ford electric orange. It would look great on that frame. Here is a picture of mine which shows the colour to give you an idea: Chris

    Orange C16-R - *Update 07/07/2011*

    Thanks mate! I did plan to put some Tioga 2.1 tyres on but they looked rubbish and barely cleared the chainstays so I went for the 1.95 Tioga Phsyco II. Next on the list is to sort the shifters. They are pretty knackered so I'll strip them back see if I can bring them back to life! Chris

    Orange C16-R - *Update 07/07/2011*

    Fitted the wheels today after a little clean up! I did originally have a pair of Mavic 217 rims on LX hubs but I managed to snap the rear rim! This was a good few years ago and I had it re-built using the same hub but with a Sun Rhyno rim. Still have the Mavic rim on the front though...
