Sanchez's On One Carbon 29er Build, 2014 Update

Postby sanchez89 » Tue Nov 20, 2012 19:02 pm

I have embraced the future of mountain biking (apparently)!!!!!!!

After a Specialized 29er test day at Cannock a few weeks i decided i needed one of these wagon wheelers in my life!

I was loking into building a hardtail for the winter anyways, as after stripping the KHS down most of the bearings were pretty fubar'd after only 1 years worth of riding!

After the relentless search for a frame, pros & cons of materials, what looks epic, what looks pap. i stumbled across the On-One site and with it the 29er Race frame. i had looked at their Lurcher frame before and decided, mmmm carbon, nice. but it didnt float my boat looks wise. however the 29er Race with its hints of red looked top dollar, and at half price it was certainly doing it for me.

so come Monday 19th November a big cardboard box bearing the words Planet X greeted me when i got home from work.

Christmas had defo come early this year.

anyways, enough chat, more pics:

the last couple of pics iv just put in the fork to see how it looks. and i like it!!

spec is to be roughly as follows;

Frame: On One 29er Race
Fork: 2011 Rockshox Reba RLT Maxle 100mm
Headset: On One Smoothie Mixer
Brakes: Avid Elixir 5SL 160mm discs F/R
Handlebars: Truvativ Low Riser 685mm
Stem: Q2 80mm
Groupset: Shimano XT 2x10 (hopefully)
Pedals: Shimano M530
Wheels: Fulcrum Red Power XL29
Tyres: Hutchinson Toro
Grips: ODI Rogue??
Seatpost: something carbon?
Saddle: Charge Spoon
Seatclamp: old QR from KHS

iv got the wheels on there way, from ebay, still need to order groupset and find out what sort of seatpost and grips i want to run.

will also need to order an adapter for the rear brake to run 160mm disc and a new set of bolts to mount the calipers with those stupid conical washers. who's clever idea was that?

so yeah, there we are, the build so far. Comments and critiscism's welcome as always. people with suggestions for carbon seatposts (cheap please) would also be greatly appreciated.

Looks nice! Much nicer than the 456c, should look pretty sweet built up. Not exactly my cup of tea, but cool none the less.

Also, a year isn't bad bearing life if you ride regularly. I know people who have to change them every month or two.

as far as im aware the geometry is identical, the lurcher frame is about 200grams heavier and is made in a different factory using a slightly lower quality material and production method.

the reason for the high cost of the Race frame is that the QC is alot stricter and they used high quality carbon.

thats what im led to believe anyways.

I don't normally like 29ers but that is a beautiful frame. The decal locations and red highlights really set it off...

mmmm nice

I have heard stories about how there isn't a lot of clearance for the chainrings especially on 2x10 so may be worth talking to Brant about which chainsets work with the frame, I think they have a list of what works best

Wheels arrived today. Fulcrum Red Power XL 29ers with Hutchinson Toro tubeless ready tyres. Ebay special at a wicked price. including 2 brake discs, XT 10 speed cassette, about 10 conti inner tubes and a set of tubeless valves.

Apparently the wheels were used as a training/spare set for a XC racer last season. so far i can only see a bit of dirt and a couple of slight scuffs round the valve area. pretty great deal i think.

just ordered a black shimano rear QR of the bay aswell as the wheels didnt come with one. and apparently shimano QR's are some of the best.

little bit bored today, so after watching the rain hit the window i thought i would chuck some of the bits iv got together and make it look sort of bike shaped, rather than a parts collection.

let me know what you think!!

also still looking for a seat post. would like a carbon one but dont want to spend anymore than £40 really, cheaper the better. any suggestions? needs to be 31.6 dia.

Cheers buddy, i was looking into the Exotic carbon post and will probably order one of the Matrix post's when i get chance.

My rear Shimano QR has arrived today which looks very nice indeed. Just needed xmas to be over with so i can sort out the rest of the parts.

I think its the 2012 XT groupo i will be getting. but glad to know it works 'pukka' as they say.

I think it looks absolutely stunning! Thank you thank you thank you for building something classy but understated that doesnt have a trace of gold bling anywhere in sight. Really great job! Kudos.

thank you for your comment! not what i was expecting so im happy with that!

no bling needed, it speaks for itself really. a little bit stealthy but still a nice contrast with the white forks and white/red decals

Don't need pointless bling with that frame, looks good even if the wheels are too big
