Giddy Up! We test the new Transition Scout

Giddy Up! We test the new Transition Scout

The industry and its riders love a pigeonholing of bikes and components, so straight out I’ll say the Scout sits squarely in the “Riding and having a laugh” category. We’d previously taken the wagon wheeled Transition Smuggler for a spin, which we loved. Again courtesy of the guys at Pedals in Edinburgh we had another of the new Transition Giddy Up bikes between our legs, in lurid limeade to brighten up the early spring gloom in the tweed valley. Unlike […]

The new Orange Five is here..

The new Orange Five is here..

We’ve been hard at work on a new Five chassis which we believe is probably the best trail bike we’ve ever produced. As is our process we haven’t scrapped what works, but built on a solid platform of performance to create a new Five to overshadow every previous version. Where recently we’ve added features to suit new componentry, this one is a complete frame overhaul. We are showing the new Five publicly for the first time at Bike Place Show . We’re launching the new […]

Day 2 at the new school- Trek Remedy 9.8 29 Review

Day 2 at the new school- Trek Remedy 9.8 29 Review

Following up on my head to head review of the new Transition & Banshee, the next weekend was time to take the 3rd of 3 out to test; the Trek Remedy 9.8 29. To be honest I didn’t expect to be able to track down such an elusive beast for a test, but thanks to a bit of Twitter detective work, Criterium Cycles came up trumps with the managers own bike, which was also available for demo, or in this […]

Welcome to the new school- Transition Smuggler v Banshee Phantom Review

Welcome to the new school- Transition Smuggler v Banshee Phantom Review

This wasn’t meant to be a bike test, all I wanted to do was demo a few bikes that I wanted to buy for myself to help me decide. But in deciding what I wanted to buy, I needed to jot a few notes down on each bike, which quickly became me sharing my thoughts on some random bike forums, which then led to me doing something I’ve not done in the best part of 3 years; picking up the […]

Introducing The new Segment From Orange

Introducing The new Segment From Orange

The Segment. Divides opinions. Conquers trails. Designed to be the fastest all-rounder we could make, the Segment takes preconceptions about what is possible on a short travel bike and pulls them apart. A 120/110mm travel 29er that can ride way beyond its travel figure, the Segment balances its inherent big-wheel unflappability with a taught and playful ride that encourages you to let it go faster, both up and down. With its low-slung stance and the kind of angles more often […]

The new Orange Alpine 160 – Yorkshire born, Alps bred.

The new Orange Alpine 160 – Yorkshire born, Alps bred.

The Alpine 160 is our no-nonsense take on a bike designed to be ridden and raced on the most brutally demanding trails in the world, so we make no apologies for putting reliability, rider control and predictable suspension performance top of our list when it came to designing it. We’re not interested in making a bike that will only last a week of uplifts, we’re interested in making a bike that will last season after season, all the while delivering […]
