Looks great, always liked the On One design, looks like a nice paint job too. Nothing wrong with a bit of bling though :wink:

built the same frame up myself, great bike, i built it up with risers originally but swapped it to one one's fleegle pro, a lot more resonsive by lowering the front a tad, I built mine up with full Sram XX build & FRM Urano tubeless wheelset & it weighs 24lb, i swapped wheelset & tyres out straight away & i think thats the most important upgrade, it rode like a tank before that with on ones own wheels & Nevegal tyres

love it!! great to see another, i only knew of Pilch's aswell so at least there are 3 of us now.

yeah my wheels arent the lightest ever made but i did try to build the bike on a budget, if i threw money at it i think i could get it well around 10-10.5kg

im yet to ride it off road but on the my little test ride over the grass outside the houses it does seem to ride really well. im hoping the good feel continues when i give it a good run out up cannock over the weekend.

the bars have a 15 deg back sweep & a 20mm forward offset - to negate the "stem shortening" effect of the big back sweep, they are flat, very very comfortable & drop the front end to improve handling, i felt the bike was too high & cumbersome with a 29" wheel & risers.

Bike Update

Postby sanchez89 » Sun Feb 02, 2014 18:02 pm

Bit of an update on this thread after nearly 12 months.

Been running the bike through the sh*tty weather and its holding up pretty well. Gears needs re-indexing though as everythings a bit clunky on changes.

I decided i wanted to try single ring up front aswell as i hardly use the granny but occasionaly the 38t is just too big for my legs.

I bought a 32t Shimano SLX middle ring ages ago but upon fitting instead of the 38 i realised the mech wouldnt go down far enough to shift and the chain rubbed on the spider arms.

Hmmmm i thought, but after seeing a few posts over on MTBR and Pinkbike i turned some 2mm washers at work, picked up a bargain E13 XCX guide with the S3 SRAM fitting and dropped the ring on.

The 2mm spacers help move the ring away so the chain slots in the gap between spider arm and chainring, perfect. The chain guide fits a dream so thanks to On One for including both High and Low mounts on the frame.

Might put some pics up when i can.

Competed at the Cannock Winter classic last sunday. first race on this bike, performed flawlessly as i expected.

first real test with a single front ring aswell but all was good.

here's a quick snap just while i was waiting for the result. 42 out of 81 aint bad considering no training at all and i started virtually at the back.

Sanchez, I love your one... Apart from the Slx shifters gear window, that frame is sooo sleek :) and then there's roachbiker's...
