We've all been there. A friend you haven't seen in a while says; "Hey, you're into bikes aren't you? I want to get a mountain bike. You know, something decent, what do you recommend? You take a deep breath and think to yourself "Where do I start?"
Well here's the good news. You start right here:
The Orange Clockwork is the member of the family that comes with a 120mm fork and runs on 27.5 inch wheels. So far so good, two boxes ticked. You don't want to recommend anything daunting, complicated or inaccessible. The Clockwork is anything but; it's a great performer, great spec, great all-rounder and the perfect launch pad for anyone young or old. It covers all the bases, will fly around trail centres, load up for a bivvy bag expedition and even get you started in racing.
WIth its straight forward reliable drivetrain, and a cracking Goldilocks 'just right' spec, this classic Clockwork will have your friend converted and you'll soon have a new crew member out on the trails. Tell 'em we sent you.

Please note: This is for guidance only. You may be taller or shorter, it doesn't mean our bikes will not fit you. The best way to determine the correct bike size for you is to try one. We've added some more explanation on sizing theory here: What size frame do I need?
We think the best way to find out what an Orange Bike really has to offer is to ride one. So don't just take our word for it, get out there and give one a go.
Sadly it looks like none of our dealers have this model in stock as a demo bike. However, you can find your nearest dealer and they can request one to be sent to them from our demo fleet.
