    Cheers dude, saw that. Happy for Aaron to get it. He’s the only Aussie Orange dealer...and I’m broke. Appreciate the heads up.

    What's the GBR - is it a team W/Champs model?

    Oh, and where are you based (I'm in Melb).
    By the way, I saw you mentions kids.... I'm doing the opposite... kids have arrived and now trying to find my way back into MTB (XC and DH as I alluded to in the post). They are young now, but I'm aiming to get my legs and lungs back into some kind of shape as to keep up ;-)
    Cheers,

    Hi mate,
    Thanks for replying to my post about DH bikes.
    Both are exactly the genre I'm after, so open to either.
    What size are they and what price range would you be happy at?
    Cheers,
    AJ
    Gearbox made in the way it is important to go 2x5,2x6,2x7,3x6,3x7,3x8, to not have big difference in gear ratios. This does not making my ride any more fun, but in fact quite frustrating, as sometimes it is just turns into constant switching with left and right hands to the point when I am no longer fallowing which gear is which and have to look onto actual shifters.
    moorey, I will opt for 36 if you don't mind, mate. Thank you very much.
    I am in Gold Coast. U208/133 Scarborough Str., Southport, QLD, 4215.
    As to my reasoning on 3x->2x it is simple. For where I am riding - it is really steep, so I can only manage 1st chain ring(22t). And when I am cruising along the city(plenty of low hills) I have to constantly shift in between 32 and 42 rings upfront.
    Moorey, it is 3x now, and I am switching to 2x. Was thinking of getting one of chin rings available on internet, but realized separate ones are narrow/wide design. If I am not wrong this N/W chain rings are for 1x system. So I actually need to find something dedicated for 2x. So much new information for me... overwhelming

    Found you a 36 (or a 40) and a 26, but as someone else mentioned, 2x kinda sucks. Most people running 3x sit in the middle 95% of the time. Gearing is versatile and chainline is good.
    2x is neither here nor there. Not the high or low gears most want.
    I’ve been 1x for 20 years on all my bikes.
    The rings are yours if you want them, but I don’t see the benefit in swapping to 2x.
    Hi moorey, you've mentioned you have spare a chain ring for my Giant conversion. BCD of my crank set is 104. Do you have something like 36/38t? Kind regards.

    I’ll check. Are you going 2x or 3x?
