Hi,
Questions regarding 2012-2014 Patriot:

What is the rear hub spacing? 12x150?
Is it possible to fit a 27.5" rear wheel?

Thanks,
Avner.

2012 was 135-12mm. Don't think I've seen a 150mm patriot before. As for wheels it's yes & no, yes it will fit with right wheel/tire combo but the distance between frame and tire is reduced a fair amount. I'd advise trying a wheel if you can hold of one and take shock off to check the clearance is all good.

Hello Orange people.

I have a 2015 26 "Orange Alpine 160 and I spoke to OrangeBikes.UK asking if I could fit 27'5" wheels by moving the front plate to the position where you see a free hole and the seat tube is closest to the swingarm. From my tests there is no problem, but someone has done it, do you have the Alpine 26 from 2014/2015 with 27'5 "wheels? I will also ride my 2013 Orange Patriot with 27'5".

Best regards
Previous owner of my 2015 alpine 160 26” tried it. He’d also ground off the cable guide. With 27.5 2.4 tyre and the shock set to further most position, it still rubbed tyre under full compression. It also ended up sitting the bike a lot higher than intended, with raised BB and steeper head angle. I can’t recommend personally.
I also tried it mullet with 150mm 27.5 fork. Felt no gain, so it’s back to full 26 glory.

to be exact just give orange a ring, they keep everything on record. But possibly a 07?
