  • Just my opinion, but I'd have put that spec on a different lighter frame :?

    Yep know what you mean,
    But I have been after a P7 for a bit, so was hoping the spec will "lessen" the weight
    of the steel bike ..
    I ran the proposed spec past the guys at Orange prior to ordering it all up :roll:
  • Fair enough :)

    also building a P7 but I'm trying to compramise strength and weight!
    I thought about xtr etc etc but personlly I don't think the frame is worth it... Gonna save that for the next build haha!

    Wish I'd gone for a "custom" colour though.... But I wanted a White frame lol!
