#3 Orange Elite

Race Ready Super light Hardtail
No Carbon but frame is only 1400grams

Orange Elite
Bought as a frame, I'd wanted one for a while having fallen in love with the colour scheme and thinking this would be the ultimate upgrade to my battle weary, ageing Evo2

As i built it: (Ready for Torq 12hr)
I built it up cannibalising bits off of other bikes with some brand new latest spec stuff
Rockshox Reba RL white forks (new)
Hope zero stack tapered headset
SLX shifters & rear mech (almost new)
Deore front mech (almost new)
Raceface Deus XC chainset (Almost new)
SLX brakes (new)
Avid discs (almost new)
XT hubs and Mavic 717 rims (from Evo2)
Specialized Avatar 143 saddle (from Evo2)
Bontrager grips (new)
Hope seat clamp and skewers (from Evo2)
Orange updated oversize finishing kit (from Evo2)

It has also looked like this:
Ready for Bear Bones 200 2012

Languishing in the shed, unused since BearBones 200 with a buckled wheel and wobbly hub :-(
