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

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!
