Gone for the orange but a G2 (the G3 frame was the wrong size).
Now I have to wait for the cycle to work 'voucher'...grrrrrrr.

Me thinks the G3 is worth it over the G2... But that is cos I am no big fan of Sram gears and hayes brakes... Couldn't they order a G3 for you?

No they only have two bikes each with œ100 off.
The LBS were adamant that I neede a 17" frame (g2) and that a 19"(g3) frame would be too big. I am 5'9".

A 19" <b>would</b> indeed be too big. I had a 19" Orange Evo 4 and I'm 6'1".

Fair enough, if the G2 comes with œ100 off as well it is a good bike for the money.
