    Set up singlespeed with Salsa Cromoto fork. It rides really well on the right trails.

    Currently set up as a 1x9. Super fast and quick. I enjoy riding these bikes way more than I did my rigid 29er. Just more fun on the trail, even if they are a bit slower in the rough stuff.

    I posted this in the On-One forum but I guess it should be in here too. Built this up for my eighteen-year-old son about three-weeks ago and he hasn't even ridden it yet! He has exams just now and won't go out.

    It's an On One 456 steel frame with a tasty mixture of quality parts. Looks cool too. Going to put a Maxxis tyre on the front, just for the matching yellow logo ;0)

    Thats a great looking bike! How much travel is that fork putting out, any idea on the HA? Gotta appreciate a kid that voluntarily focuses on his studies when there is a new trail ripping machine right outside their door waiting for them...

    This is a 120mm fork which gives a 67.2deg static head angle. The frame is designed to work ok with forks from 100mm but can take up to 150mm, which would give a head angle of 65.6 degrees. Most users seem to agree that around 140mm feels the best. I have a Rock Shox Sektor here that I can set to 140mm so I'll let him try it like this for a while then put the longer fork on and see what he thinks of that.

    Just spend an hour in the shed trimming the centre braking knobs on a Maxxis DHRII so that I can put it on the front of this bike. Just so I can have two yellow Maxxis logos on it. Is that very sad? ;0)

    Out of curiosity, what allows these bike to run such a large variance of travel such as 100mm-150mm? Is it because it is a steel bike with a stronger than aluminum headtube? I was curious if I could run a longer travel fork on my Dragon Team or Monocog frame without any stress issues due to it being steel. Am I wrong to think so, beyond geometry...

    Generally, the frame maker will suggest what travel the frame can handle. Often, people don't listen to those suggestions. Just because a frame is steel, that doesn't mean that it's stronger than another frame made from a different material.

    Thank you, to expand on that, What allows the frame to withstand more travel than another with similar HA properties? Is it merely just the builders suggestions? Im asking because I find it odd that a On One 456 can take such drastic change in travel when a Monocog or Dragon Team frame cant, is this just because Redline and Jamis dont recommend it, so in fact I run the same risks as I would on the 456?

    Do you mean head angle properties? Head angle doesn't have anything to do with the strength of a frame. Frame materials, building techniques, tube properties and gussets plus other things I'm sure I'm missing will dictate the strength of a frame. Also, a rider has a lot to do with what a frame can handle. Some people can ride a DH course fast on a XC bike and never break anything. While other people can ride the same course on a DH bike and break stuff.

    If the frame is built strong enough to take a long fork then obviously it will handle a shorter one but, in my opinion, the real answer is, they don't. What I mean by that is sure, you can make a bike physically take the stress of a long fork but I can't see how you could make the geometry work well with both a 100 and 150mm up front.

    With respect to your own bikes, manufacturers always tell you to stick to the fork length the bike came with. They are covering themselves as a longer fork will alter the way the bike rides and stress the frame more. That's the theory anyway.

    Yes, a longer fork will change the way the bike feels but although, in theory, the head-tube might snap off, people have been slapping longer forks on their bikes for years and it's not very often you hear of a head-tube failure. It does happen but I'm inclined to think that it has more to do with how you are riding the bike than the length of fork. A big guy doing jumps is going to put a heck of a lot more stress on the head-tube than an average guy riding flat trails.

    In practice, I reckon you're fine to add another 20mm or so to your fork. It seems like nothing but you will feel even that small change. More than that can feel pretty weird. As for the frame stress of a big change, who knows. If it's tamer trails I'm inclined to think a longer fork would be fine but I'd worry about jumping it.

    This is what I figured. I just find it interesting that most bike manufacturers only recommend +/- 20mm of travel but On One is ballsy enough to say 100mm-150mm. I just didn't know if there was something different about the structural integrity of their headtubes compared to others.

    All you can really say is that they have designed the frame to take the stress of a 150mm fork. Other frames may be as strong, but unless the manufacturer says so, you're guessing.

    I don't know but my guess is that they've made a 150mm frame and made sure the BB hight is enough to let you run a 100mm fork without bouncing your feet off the ground like a demented clown! Beyond that, I can't see how you can make a frame work correctly for both extremes.

    The nice thing about steel is that is has more progressive failure modes than aluminium. It's far more likely to bend or start cracking than suddenly shear clean off. Would I run a long fork on a steel frame not designed for it? Probably not, but if you chose to there is half a chance you'll spot trouble before it puts you in the hospital.

    The first bike I've built, 2nd hardtail I've owned. SPD pedals not yet fitted. Also odd wheels because I can't afford a rear wheel yet and I want to build my own. Weighs about 13kg

    ^nice, it's like a compact road bike or CX-Ready bike! This is what I want to go for with my bike whenever I can ditch the suspension fork.

    Revel 2

    I have posted before but it has been 3 years since I have ridden. The itch to really get back out and ride again has come back, so I got my Revel 2 rolling again. I am excited to finally hit some trails.

    This is my 90's something hardrock. I put on the BMX bars and extended the cables. Also I just put on the shimano deore 3 pc. crankset which is an awesome upgrade. I use it for cruising around town and bombing hills.
    I bought it for 30 bucks off craigslist but have dropped 200 into the upgrades; it was worth it though... its a solid bike. Ive put a lot of miles on this thing in the last year

    Poynt,
    What is going on with your fork? does it just need air? Let me know if you sell and if it is a medium, I might be interested.

    Was able to get out a bit on my new Palomar.

    I switched out to Serfas Drifter tires. It mainly stays on the road around town, but, they did ok on the little hiking trail.

    I need to get rid of these microshift shifters.

    Just found this thread. I like it!
    Here's my Titus RX1, bought new in early 2010. It's my only bike and I ride the shit out of it. Started off as a 3x9, converted to a 1x9 a few years ago. By next weekend, it'll be a 1x11, can't wait!

    First outing last Saturday for the On One 456 I built up for my son. Everyone who sees this bike talks about how cool it looks, which is nice.

    My Cannondale Scalpel 26er. 21.4 lbs as shown. Bought used for $1500. Carbon frame. 1x11 speed. Lefty DLR carbon. Sram X01 drive train. XT 11-42 cassette. Tubeless Racing Ralph tires. Chinese carbon handle bar and seatpost.

    The shifting is really crisp. No problem using the XT cassette with Sram shifter and derailleur. Probably will upgrade the wheels to 650b when the current pair worns out.

    Feels fast and nimble when riding the bike. Totally night and day difference compare to my previous aluminum 27lbs full suspension. Couldn't believe saving 6 lbs make such a huge improvement.

    Swapped on some off road tread today in preparation for mountain logging roads in the area.

    It had 1.25" slicks on that were dicey at best for off road use.

    Set up singlespeed with Salsa Cromoto fork. It rides really well on the right trails.
    I just picked up a '97 Rockhopper Comp to convert to a SS and couldn't be happier. I couldn't find a Salsa 26" fork, so I had to get a Kona P2. I'll be running Canti's front and rear though. Hard to tell from the pic, but you're using a tensioner?

    GORGEOUS BIKE!

    Thank you! I love the bike. Rides very well and relatively smoothly. It has a DMR STS tensioner with 34-18 gearing. I did have to grind out a bit of the tensioner to give a little more tension with that ratio, but I might try a 35t ring or 19t cog at some point. I got lucky on the Salsa fork. Not a lot of options... Be sure to post your bike!

    What gearing?

    It is currently 34:18. Only 34 up front because the cranks are 110BCD and that was the only size SS chain ring I had that would work with them. I also picked up a 16t & 17t cog, once I get it on the trails I'll decide which works best for me and adjust. I know it sounds dumb but I really built this bike for a specific set of trails that I ride a lot, and my SC 5010 is just too much bike for. Not a ton of climbing, not rough at all, so a rigid SS works well there. I may be able to get to 34:16 after a few rides to get my SS legs back. I also would like to possibly get an ENO Eccentric rear hub at some point once I figure out the gearing and have to invest in a nice WI freewheel.

    Of course I also haven't started messing around to see if I can find a magic link combo yet either...too hot in my garage right now in Phoenix!

    That's exactly why I built a rigid single speed, as well. It makes the boring trails much more exciting! Especially with 26" wheels.

    Here's another single speed 26er that is so much fun on the right trails!

    I've got an old mid-'90s Trek that I've set up SS. It has semi-horizontal dropouts so no tensioner is required. I'm running a 32/20 set up; too many punchy climbs on my local trails. It's a blast to ride.

    [sarcasm] terrible ride yesterday, couldn't get over any pebble in the path due to its outdated small wheels. Ended up just hiking[/sarcasm]

    J/k, great ride, fun bike, even though it's old enough to drink legally.

    My 2008 Cannondale Rush, just before getting started on a 1x11 update.

    Ran this bike as a 3x9 for years, then switched to 2x9 for a while and have been riding it as a 1x9 for a few months now.

    Have contemplated getting a new bike quite a few times, but I enjoy riding this one so I'll probably stick with it for quite awhile still.

    Will post post-update pics soonish.

    2000 Jekyll 3000SL. Flow EX wheelset tubeless, XT drivetrain/brakes...in this pic it's a 2x10, have since switched to newer XT8000 1x11. About 27lbs as it sits. Bike was a yard sale buy, a gift from my wife. Rode it for about 4 years. It's a 19" (L), and I am only 5'6". So I finally scraped enough money to get a smaller frame. A 2013 SB66 Alloy in a small, came with a KS Lev dropper and new CC DbAirCS shock. Going to transfer everything except fork and headset over to new frame. Also need a different front hub. Loved the Jekyll. Hated the Cannondale shock setup.

    2006 Giant STP

    Hi Guys,

    I have finally built back up my 2006 Giant STP, I bought this frame new and it has been gathering dust for quite a few years.

    I am stocked to get it built again to take to the skate park with my son on his scooter!

    Spec:

    • 2006 Giant STP frame
