So you pull it off every 6 months and regrease and you are still calling them the factory bearings 2 years later?

Orange also has the most retarded way of mounting the pivot bearings

It's slightly ironic in light of your mocking of Commencal's though, seeing as they are virtually the same.

but if the bearings do go, it's just 2 to replace, and it's a piece of piss to do. not 8...

and who the fuck would own an orange?

people who like regularly replacing the swingarm under warranty? it's kind of like owning a jamis, only with nicer graphics :satan:

as for comments on number of bearings/longevity of metas - suse's meta4 is 5 years old and still on original bearings, don't think Oli's touched his either? And I'd rather deal with linkage manintenance than put up with the poo ride of hecklers/oranges cos they are silly enough to directly couple the shock

Correct, although this could be argued as everyone knows I don't ride my bike.
