How to transform a basical 29er on a super bitch bicycle
This is the work done by Orange Bikes with its 29er the Clockwork. The clockwork represents a lot for the brand since it’s one of the first bike designed by the founders. And 2014 is the 25th anniversary of the bicycle !
Here is below the classic version of the clockwork.. nice mountainbike but does not look like a strong Orange signature.
And after some works, here is the result.. looks like a brand new bike with the nice set of colors chosen by the designer. The light grey of the frame matches well the purple components providen by Hope.. an english wedding in fact !
This Clockwork 25 is now a pretty sexy boy. Price of this limited edition will surpass 3 000€ but you can look at the equipment below, there is no scandal and of course, we are watching the first bicycle of a total of 25.
What we like with this mountainbike is that guys at Orange really think as riders.. How can i customise my bike that is pretty standard..
With a new paint and pimped components, job is done and well done !
