Putting my five up for sale, been a great bike but it's time for something new. Purchased 2011 as custom and has had nearly every component upgraded bar the cranks & seat since then. No expense spared to ensure this bike is a speed demon and has been well cared for by myself and suspension professionally serviced by others (flotec, tf tuned). Long full spec, here goes-
-Orange Five AM 16" 2011. Fairly good condition just minor scrapes, no dents, cracks etc. Frame wrap to swing arm and helitape in areas to prevent cable rub. Pivot bearings replaced within last 6 months. 135x12mm maxle rear.
-Hope integral headset & Hope ceramic bottom bracket- likely last a lifetime.
-Cane Creek Double Barrel, comes with 3 springs. 500, 450 & 550 x 2.0 cane creek steel springs. Serviced by TF tuned Feb 2013, wont need another for a while, long service intervals. Best shock in the world. get tuning, I'll provide my set up which I think is perfect for the bike and trails I ride
-Rockshox Pike RCT3 150mm. less than four months old. Best fork in the world at the moment. Service kit and bottomless tokens included.
-Stans No Tubes ZTR Flow EX rims set up tubeless. De-stickered, prefer the stealth look for my bikes! On Hope Pro 2 Evo front and rear hubs. Wheels built and purchased within last year from Moonglu. Straight, round and fast!
-Specialized Butcher Control & Purgatory Control tyres. Loads of tread left. Great tyres.
-Race Face Evolve Cranks with Superstar Components Nano pedals.
-E-thirteen 34T single guide ring.
-MRP G2 Mini chain guide
-SRAM X0 1x9 rear derailleur and X0 shifter. SRAM PG990 Cassette.
-Shimano Zee Four piston brakes fitted with shimano high power brake lines- awesome power. Shimano Ice-tech rotors 160mm both ends.
-Rockshox reverb 30.9mm 125mm seatpost
-Straitline seat post clamp
-Straitline 50mm stem
-Raceface Atlas FR bars cut to 760mm wide with nukeproof lock on grips. Great grips, will get a set for new bike for sure, really sticky once worn in.
-SDG Bel Air saddle, ripped but fairly comfy.
-Mucky Nutz front bender fender.
Phew, long list. Reminds me of all the cash I've spent on this bike. All totally worth it bike rides like a dream and I will genuinely be sad to see it go, but go it must to a new owner who will care for her as much as I have.
Any queries please ask.
Will take reasonable offers.
Thanks for looking!
