    Never been a massive fan of 29ers or Orange bikes but for some reason I really like that..... I think thats a compliment right?!

    "Black and gold black and gold black and gold"

    I liked the look of the black gold just didn't like the brakes
    So spec this up with hopes

    But some people like Marmite......

    If YOU like it that is all that matters, they get good ride reviews as well, I wouldn't, but then I've been trying to decide whether I should get a FS for 3 years so far!

    Very nice, except the ergo grips, they're the work of satan.
