    Orange bikes are the best

    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?

    I prefer polished aluminum or black, orange is just too loud for me.

    Orange is british bike manufacturer...

    To say anyone makes the best bike is silly - there are so many decent bikes around - it comes down to feel and preference - probably which OEM has the best marketing also.....

    No, they are not the best bike available. I find it hard to believe that any single pivot full suspension frame is the "best" race frame. They are nice bikes though. Hope you enjoy it.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Just because red bikes are the fastest doesn't mean they are the best!

    *note - however since it's a racer-x it is in what I consider the top five.

    I would never buy from Orange after seeing how my friends Mis isle snapped at the chainstay. The frame was less than a season old and it snapped on a very small DJ. He did get it warrentied supper fast, but still!

    Orange is good, but lime goes better with gin and tonic.
