    Orange Crush or Kona Hoss

    Hi all,

    I want to build a bike for urban enduro riding. It should be light and durable. I'm about 80 kg (176 lbs) and I won't be doing big drops, but there will be some small jumps, stairs etc.

    The fork will be Fox Vanilla R or RLC. I wonder, which frame would be better: Orange Crush or Kona Hoss. I can get Kona for lower price, and I've had a possibility to test ride it - it rides VERY nice... but I like Orange brand so much that I'm ready to spend some extra $ for the name. :) These is no chance for me to test the Orange before buying it, so I'm asking your advice - maybe someone has Crush riding experience and can share his opinion..

    Thanks in advance!
    Sorry for my English

    I haven't heard much about the Orange Crush, do you have specs for it? Kona Hoss seems to have a very good frame.

    Here's the specs for Crush:

    But I want to buy the frame alone, not the entire bike.

    Seems to be a hard decision. Its good how you can get the Kona Hoss frame cheaper.....but yeah its a tough one. I would wait to see what other people think. I'm heading towards the Hoss...

    The views expressed above are badly thought out and hastley typed. Any spelling or gramatical mistakes, are, their to annoy.

    You already answered you own question really. If you are willing to pay for the name, get the Orange. PErsonally I prefer the hoss but both frames being more or less equal, value goes to Kona, name goes to Orange...name it is
