Orange bikes are the lightest, fastest, Brittish & look the best but they are expensive & not as strong as others but they generally do not fall apart. I have the new 224 Race frame that costed me €2250 but when I build it this bike will be really cool. My bike team mostly have Specialized cross country bikes as these bikes are commen in Spain but my bike will rule over them. Orange frames are generaly strong but I have heard few instences of the swing arm snapping as it is a single pivit but as I do not weigh much I am not worried. Any one own an Orange suspension frame? They are the best frames you believe?
