Dude you know how 9k stared ? well i got my frame and thought i needed to off-set the weight of a dropper post and things just spiralled from there,i feel like a right dickhead for it but it kind of got out of hand and now it's got to the stage where i just have to finish it,i try and keep a bit of a low profile about it sometimes but it's hard to do,lol,i mean how the feck do you keep something like it quiet ? it's about as loud as it gets :-) never been to happy about the CTD either and i love my 23's,i got the CTD to match the fork really,got a Kashima topcap on it as well :-)

you know what i'v never rode it,i bought the shock brand new and there were only 10 others at the time in the country so Mojo told me,to be honest i don't even know if i'll ever ride the bike anyhow,i have another Five and all my Patriots so why cane a £9k bike,seems a bit mad,probably just ride it in less damaging conditions and special occasions,as far as the CTD's concerned then i reckon it'l just be a fancy RP23 and i'm so used to them that i'll probably just stick it in Trail mode and leave it,i consider the frame to be the most important thing and i certainly get the most out of a Five so who knows really :-)

160's to much bike for your neck of the woods m8 :-) try and get a hold of a 2008 Patriot ;-) it does everything a Five does and everything a modern Patriot does ;-) it's the best bike Orange ever built,i'll never get rid of mine,only riding a Five because of injury and i need the smaller bike at the min,i crack Fives but i can't crack my Patriot :-)

going to keep it 26 Dude,i have 2 26 Five frames and 3 Patriots,i have more wheelsets i can shake a shitty stick at as well so 26 till the death m8,i was talking to a guy last week,he rode Fives for years but fancied a change with his new bike and he got a Nicolai Ion 650,i asked him if he noticed any difference and he looked proper gone out when he told me there was no difference,,he expected the downs to be quicker and they're not,he showed me his Strava and he's real fast as well,one of the fastest in fact,he looked pissed off he spent so much going for the 650 put it that way,26 for me is way more fun i reckon ;-)

Dude,i have to say i feel sorry for you,you have top bike's but no hills,i took some guys out and they were from Wales last week,they were destroyed inside 10 miles round here,we did 6000ft of climbing in 20 miles and it took us 7hrs,i got the classic "get him on his own territory and he's unstoppable",they ride trail centre's all the time,WTF!!!....i can do that ride in 2hrs,you need some hills Dude,....don't get me wrong though,spent some time down your way,it's beautiful,you get better weather as well :-) give me a shout if you get up my way,i'll be your guide :-)
