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!

Love that bike, How good are Orange 29ers these days, just love 'em myself. Had a 2010 five and always regreted selling it and would have bought a 29er five but am toooo short so went the Gyro route instead and couldn't be happier.
Must run outside now and post another pic myself lol.....

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