Nice looking bike that twonks. Good spec and good colour combo. Let me know if you ever upgrade your forks, I'm after some of those!

Brakes and wheels are a worthy upgrade in the future but for now, get riding what is a fantastic bike. Loving the colour - would look even better dirty - they all do ;D

Some love for the 456C thread.

New lower, wider bars. Ragley 740mm bars. Rides so well!

Just a phone pic, will take a "proper" snap next sunny (hungover) day.

My bike from the very beginning of this thread has had a few changes recently. Gone back to 2x9 from 1x9 with an xtr cassette and rings with an e thirteen bash. Had to change the tyres after one of my conti x kings decided to explode so now got a Rocket Ron 2.2 on the rear with a big Hans Dampf 2.4 up front. New saddle from an onone bignose to a charge spoon. And decided to upgrade my forks so the Recon 120mm are up for sale and been replaced with 2012 Revelations 150mm. Love this bike even more now!

Really nice that pal, nicest red one ive seen. However what on earth are you doing with that poor mans chain stay protector? Get a proper one, you must have a dozen lying around.

Weight?

I'd say he doesn't even need a protector with that C-Guide on there.

I was thinking the same as I also have the X0 clutch type rear mech, I will see if there is any chain noise on her maiden voyage, if not I will remove the protector.

Almost 100%, clutch mech + c-guide will make your ride silent!

I'm looking to go 1 x 10 very soon on mine with a clutch mech & a narrow/wide ring. Just need to swallow the 120 odd its going to cost 0_o

From this weekend.

That's turned out awesome Mr Evil. Rarely see this colour, and it looks wicked. Look after that Kashima coating - don't put any Fork Juice on them (advised of this recently).

Anybody tried 100mm travel forks on 456c...any good ? Would've thought it would make a good XC bike.

Whats your opinions.

Afaik it won't work. Because its a 73mm BB shell the BB adapter takes up the only spacer you'd normally have and the chain line will be totally out. So you need a guide that is a BB mount as standard, any that are ISCG won't fit. I might be wrong but pretty sure that's the case.

I'm really happy with the bike but do wish they made it in 17"..
Its not the lightest build but it was never intended to be.
It Climbs well . well well enough for me ..1x9 and gravity inspired :wink:
Excellent on the downs and surprisingly comfortable through the rocky sections like Cain n Abel on the MBR
Not the prettiest of frames they say , but I'm definitely a function over form guy and for the money you really cant beat it .
OMG a fastback! I love my type 3's!


how did you mount the chain guide ??? cheers matey

It would be fine using SIDS or Reba's with a longer stem etc., however, this a slack frame and you'd be better off with something like an On-One Whippet if you're after an XC frame that's light. Course the 456 would give you the option to swop out the forks for bigger travel if you want to hit the harder stuff down the line.

The choice is yours.…

Sorry looking picture with a flat tyre, was unable to change it as I had cracked my elbow and decided to faceplant the floor at the last Brownbacks race (very silly thing to do)

Image

On One Carbon 456 18"
Rock Shox Sector RL (think they are RL forget now)
Hope rear hub, 15mm front hub
Mavic Rims
Ltd Edition Hope V2 Brakes & 203/183 floating rotors
Slx Cranks
Hope Ceramic Bottom Bracket
Sram X0 rear mech
Shimano Xt front mech
Sram X5 shifter
Various tyres to suit all kinds of riding (completed the Liverpool/Chester/Liver pool 90 mile challange on slicks)
SGD Seat

Few things have changed since that photo including the rims, mainly due to breaking them....

Image

Things I have found out about the C456, do not use Bottom Bracket mounting front mechs, 36 tooth front ring on a twin set up is what you can get away with as the 38 is a little to close to the frame.

Some nice bikes on this thread.


hi matey, just wondered why you say not to use a bb mounted mech ?
