It’s with a heavy heart that I have to an­nounce that my 29er has gone back to Orange for in­spec­tion. Although low on travel, the Seg­ment is big on en­cour­ag­ing you to send it, and, af­ter one jump too far, I fear I may have done crit­i­cal dam­age to the frame. At the mo­ment this is spec­u­la­tive, and I’m no engi­neer. I should also point out that I’ve rid­den this bike in anger all year and have treated it like a mini DH bike – it re­ally has put up with some hor­ren­dous abuse! I’ll re­port back as soon as I’ve heard the of­fi­cial word.
