Orange Five 29 BlackGold: in the studio


Price as reviewed:


The iconic Five now has a bigger-wheeled brother, and the boys from Halifax were kind enough to drop an Orange Five 29 into our studio this morning. They’re only making 50 of these limited edition black-and-gold numbers before full production begins and, well, the pictures seemed too good not to share immediately.
