I was looking for a Whyte 905 or Marin San Quentin 3 but then I saw the Orange and it was a seriously good deal so I went with that. I also bought it around this time last year.
I keep meaning to ask how you stripped and polished that?
Patience, and lots of it.
I used some paint stripper, but all it did was soften the paint, so most of it came off with a brass brush, then I wet'n'dry'd it, then polished it. the polishing was a bit of a rushed job, it could do with some more time spent on it.
Took about 20 hours in all. Should have bought a Nicolai.

I know that feeling ;-)
If you take all the bolts out, it doubles as a flute
if you take saddle and seatpost off, it'll double as a fart flute.
If you wanted something cheap to see if they're into it I'm selling a 2010 Trek Fuel Ex 9.9 17.5inch as a rolling chassis. Nude carbon frame (frame and shock only 2.6kg), handmade in Wisconsin. £200 plus postage or collection from Norfolk? Cane creek headset, cobalt 3 seat post, Hope seat clamp, 2011 Rockshox revelations 20mm thru axle, DT 240 time on SLX hubs, 1 ride old spesh butcher on the front and half worn purgatory on back. Survived Ard Rock last year even though I ran out of talent on the first stage.
^ the last photo is excellent. No attempt to break the fall; fate accepted.
Wait, these aren’t my glasses.
Thanks dude, very tempting. What sort of height range would you say would suit this size bike?
Is 26 dead tho?
But who cares?
Teenagers I suspect.
Got a couple of stems for sale for 35mm bars
Selling my Tarn 20 is anyone is keen?
Trek put their 17.5 as 5ft 4 to 5ft 8. It was pretty special when it came out for being capable of technical stuff but fast enought that their marathon racers used them. Specialized still make a lot of their current tyres in 26 inch range. Drop me a PM if you want more pics and info.
I bet his mum was having kittens. 🤘
Is that Swinley?
Hahaha. Yeah the black run.
New stealthy version of @Howard 's favourite budget mtb
Yeah looks great. £999.
or 8 of these -
I'd buy that Trek if I didn't already have MTBs I don't ride enough (well, and it was bigger). When I bought my last MTB it was one of the ones I really liked.
On that subject, Bike Discount has some decent deals on 27.5" frames but you'd need to source a shock which may make them not so cheap.
