First Look: Orange Stage 6 Evo
@jaame: Hopefully that bloke in his shed is better than the monkeys piecing aluminium at the Orange factory. I think 3 of my mates have had their frames crack along the welds. Their after sales team will happily charge you for the repair though… Other than that I’m definitely with you. And yes, they’re fast!

Sounds like you’re full of experience where the Lakes are concerned?

The 2021 Orange Bikes Crush Goes Mullet - Across the Pond Beaver
@sewer-rat: nail on the head there mate. And Harry, I’m not making it up. I live less than 10 miles from their factory and pass the place on my way to the office. They’re local and i really would love to buy their bikes, I like their designs and one set of frame bearings... need I say more??? The poor welding and high price though, it ruins a brand and forces my eye elsewhere.

The 2021 Orange Bikes Crush Goes Mullet - Across the Pond Beaver
@thenotoriousmic: I’m speaking from experience and the fact that one mates had 2 5’s crack, another had a 5 and an alpine crack, another local lad has an alpine that they’ve replaced. My mate worked there and he said they would rather tell customers with warranty claims that they were out of stock and would “offer” them an upgrade at a reduced price. Shit service. Re my Trek, I bought it from my small LBS and yes it’s let me down and yes Trek promptly replaced FOC with no questions asked. If you want my advice though, buy an Ibis or a Santa Cruz. I’m happy in my glass house for now anyway thanks.

@HarrySimpson: Orange have seen more crack than a smack den. I don’t know why they’ve got such a following, their bikes are wank. Shame really!

@tobiusmaximum: haha, I like the bike but it does need brightening up a bit. I’ve been wanting them to get back on the big bike scene for ages now!

Still looks like something you'd get from Asda though.

Bike Check: Joe Barnes' Unique Orange Alpine 6
I would love to buy an Orange next, just unlikely for now due to the amount of frames that suffer cracks at the welds. 3 mates, one with a 5 and the other 2 on Alpines, all have suffered cracks. Orange repaired them but charged for the paint job. All the issues with my Slash 98 have been sorted FOC, I've seen the receipts for replacement shocks, wheels etc from the shop and Trek don't bat an eyelid, they just pay up.
