Getting Patriotic

Ordered the day we came back from the Alps in August, the new bike is finally here… A brand new 2007 Orange Patriot. It’s destined to become the bike of choice for big rides and taking on some of the runs that the hardtails just don’t quite cut it on.

It’s built up with a mix of bits, some of which were from the old Enduro, others which were spec’d up for the new build. The Hope braided hoses were a much needed move as the hoses were looking fairly battered and the front hose was actually strapped and taped up after being kinked when running the SC32s in the Alps.
