Due to being made redundant, here is my beloved Orange 222 up for sale... reluctantly!

Orange 222 DH / Freeride Mountain Bike / Frame size 15 inch

This is my dream bike and I have only had it 8 months.
To my knowledge I am the third person to have owned this beaut since it was brought out in 2003.
The person who I bought it off hardly used it because he moved away to Uni but kept it in excellent condition.

Since buying it I removed the stickers and aimed to get some new ones but actually like the stealth look!

I bought some 2009 Boxxer Race forks and had them fully serviced, oil change and fitted by a trained mechanic.
This improved travel from old 180mm to 200mm.
Also fitted a direct mount Nukeprrof Warhead stem (Brand New)
The new forks had incompatible post mounts for the brake caliper so I upgraded that to a Hope Tech M4 (Brand new).
New DH tubes and rear MAXXIS Minion 2.5 Super Tacky Tyre, both tyres still have the whiskers on.

All upgrades were just done before Christmas.

The bike is extremely nimble because of the small frame size and easy to handle through the corners. This model has the IBS braking bar allowing braking to be independent from the frame and rear suspension travel and on rough terrain makes braking very sharp.

The frame has a few minor scratches but is in good nick and one near headset (pictured) ... nothing to worry about, cosmetic more than anything else.
The underside casing for the shifter has always been off but doesn't affect the function at all.
The headset needs some new bearings but other than that it's good to go.
