Just arrived at our Innerleithen store is the much anticipated Orange Gyro 29er. One of the first 50 bikes to roll off the production line, in an exclusive black/gold finish , you'll be one of the lucky first few owners in the UK! The bike is a medium, and is equipped with a Shimano SLX/XT mix 10spd drivetrain, Avid brakes, and Fox forks with 15mm axle and Fox shock. Both the fork and shock come with the upgraded Kashima finish.
A great all rounder, the bike uses Oranges tried and tested folded aluminium construction, and single pivot design, to deliver 110mm travel. In Oranges words "If you want something blatantly fast, endurance efficient, but still fun enough to throw around, they don’t come better than this". If you want to try one out, we even have a second bike (also a medium) available as part of our demo fleet at Glentress.
Update - New Orange Gyro Video
We've just release Episode 2 of our 2012 video series featuring the new Orange Gyro - turns out that it's a bit of a trail weapon!
We love getting new toys to try out - this time Dave from Orange kindly came up to the Tweed Valley with the new Gyro for us to put it through its paces.
We asked Jake Hood, from Alpine Bikes Glentress to show Dave around and he did a great job of keeping up (mostly!)
We were all really impressed with the bike - Orange have taken the iconic Five frameset and tweaked and played with the geometry to make sure the fun feel of the Five is still in place, while balanced off nicely against the efficiency and free rolling feel of the big 29er wheels.
Basically, it's a trail centre weapon!
Don't take our word for it though, test ride it yourself - we have a demo bike in our Glentress store.
