Video: Joe Barnes rides Ben A’an on his pink Orange Patriot

The Orange Patriot’s a bona fide classic so it’s good to see it’s back for 2013 after a short hiatus. Oh, and you’ll be glad to hear they don’t all come in pink. Joe Barnes proves the bike’s all-mountain credentials by riding one down the steep, rocky slopes of Ben A’an in Scotland.
