this is on the Isle of Wight, might have been the same ride as the pic with Gus.

Evo 2 racing the Salisbury Plain winter event

this was a magazine shoot, on my ST4, got told off as it wasn't an official trail, there were letters to the editor etc

first ever organised retro ride on the Isle of Wight, big turn out, maybe 25 riders, i'm on my 1991 clockwork here.

this was my "winter P7" it was rough when i got it, so instead of sorting the nickel plate i got it powder coated white, base spec for winter gravel track riding before garvel bikes were a thing

nice close up of the Vit T2

my first ST4
the more recent stuff, most of which i still have

this is my go to bike, my 2019 P7, built 27+, love it.

my Orange 4, long gonem didn't ride it enough but i reallu liked it.
Now I think about it,I've owned more Oranges than I'd remembered 😅. I guess I just fell into being a bit of an Orange fan, grew up in Yorkshire and gawped at them in Stif Cycles & saw so many at races in the 1990's👍

1993 Prestige is where it all started, still ridden occasionally...

Briefly had a Tushingham B-52 (almost an Orange 😉)....

Then a 2000-something P7....

Then the Retro P7...

A 2008/2009-ish Orange 5, which saw plenty of use...

And latterly there's been the Orange Dynamo road bike,
and my current ride is a 2021 P7 29er which I'm planning to race a few local enduro races on this year, in the hard tail category 😀...

Wow!! ^^^ 😮 @Cheshire1980.

Wasn't my Dynamo yours previously as well?

Forgot I have a Formula frame in my parents garage still, Dave Yates built I think, probably beyond saving tbh, but plan I get it looked at sometime.
