It's a prototype and distinctive. If you're offered a Sub 5 that doesn't look quite the same as usual, contact Orange.

Orange nabbed

The bike was stolen from the Lake District late last week.

Michael Bonney of Orange believes this particular Sub 5 will be easy to spot:

"The bike was the first of a new design with lower pivot point, revised geometry and featured a radiused version of our traditional box shaped downtube.

"[It’s] painted in matt black fitted with Manitou Black forks, and Deore discs with a double chainset/bashguard and with the swingarm filed away above the chainset to allow a front mech to fit in the bike."
