Don't get it (him Lincs, no?), but gotta say good brand (my current ride a p7)!
I say it because Orange used to pride themselves on good old fashioned British belt'n'braces engineering....which is much in keeping with GM's persona. Yep, I know that there are a lot of traditional frame builders that are of a similar ilk, but the image that I get of GM is being more top the MTBing side of things to start with. My second choice might have been PACE but they didn't do roadies AFAIK (and please don't tell me that they do as I can't afford one).
