Orange Ms Isle - Owned from new


Dirt Disciple

I am new to the site, I stumbled across it and had a browse and it bought back lots of memories looking at all the old skool bikes!

I have been into bikes for many, many years. for my 14th/15th birthday (around 1996) my mum and dad bought me a C16-R frameset which i built up with LX/XT groupset and used it for many years. I still have to this day.

After a few years (1998/9) I bought an Orange Ms Isle which was then stolen when I took it to Centre Parcs! (foolish!!) :roll:

I claimed it back on the insurance and managed to speak to the shop who supplied me with the new bike, I paid extra to spec the bike up a bit and have added / changed parts ever since

Now has:

Hope DH4 Discs (Front and Rear)
Hope XC Hubs (Front and Rear)
XTR Rear Mech
Rock Shox Psylos
Tioga bars and Stem
Charge Saddle
Single ring Truvative cranks
Custom Chain Device

I still use the bike on a regular basis, here is a photo:

Really like those frames, nice bike ;)
That pic has helped me decide what colour to paint my Norco too :D

Thanks! Yeah, I love the colour too, I think it suits the bike...nice and loud!
