First Look: Orange Stage 6 Evo
@redrook: Under the top tube utilizing the "accessory mount" with a side entry cage or a Fidlock would probably be fine. As I said before only sick-o's run bottle cages under the down tube.

First Look: Orange Stage 6 Evo
@Inertiatic: I imagine you could find some sort of bottle mount that would work there. Plus placing water bottle mounts beneath the top tube has become quit fashionable for UK frame builders.

First Look: Orange Stage 6 Evo
This is the very first Orange (that I am aware off outside of really old XC rigs maybe) where there is a mount within the front triangle. Only maniacs use those bottle mounts under the downtube.

Cotic Announces Droplink Mullet
@cotic-bikes: I've not ridden nor visited the UK, but my oldest is considering studying abroad there after having fun spring break trip there last year. Obviously I'd have to visit and sneak in some rides. There are plenty of roots, rocks and general janky trails not to mention the ton of rain where I live in N Georgia USA and if the stuff around here isn't gnarly enough I can always drive up to Pisgah which I do a few times a year. The bottom bracket height of that bike I put the angleset on ended up at around 331mm. My current whip is slightly higher. Again, with my short legs I love the way the bike handles and the cornering is unreal. I have to be mindful of pedal position, but it's never been a deal breaker.

Cotic Announces Droplink Mullet
@cotic-bikes: I've gone the opposite direction with using anglesets to slacken the front end and steepen the effective SA. Yeah, the BB is low like this, but it is not an issue if you swap to 165 cranks. I did this with a V1 Wreckoning and it turned an already ripping frame into a monster without any downsides. A Works Components angelset is the least expensive yet most drastic way to alter the character of a bike. Lastly, a mullet or MX set up is a huge plus for me at 170 cm giving the bike a more playful vibe without the dread of taint buzz on the steeps.

Bold Updates the Linkin Integrated Shock Trail Bike
@Explodo: That seems like an awful lot of trouble and expense to for that end. Tbh, I cannot recall ever having (or seeing) a shock fail because it became too dirty. Maybe seals deteriorate faster and damping controls could become unusable, but again prevention of such seems like a nominal benefit at best.

Bold Updates the Linkin Integrated Shock Trail Bike
Looks like a churched-up Evil. ;) Looks aside, I cannot discern what the benefit is to "hiding" the shock. It's not about getting the shock low in the frame as there a bunch of other bikes (Speshy Enduro, Santa Cruz everything minus the Blur and of course the granddaddy Evil), doing that now.
