    It looks like we're getting some were with Batiasta at AllCarbonBikes. We've sent a couple of emails back and forth. I've beat him up on pricing pretty good, I'm sure he's saying to himself: "What have I gotten into with these crazy Americans?"

    I think we can hash out a better shipping quote, and I'm awaiting his response.

    I have diagrams and pics of the 26" frames, and some *****en looking time trials frames, but it's the 29ers were looking for. He says he'll be getting them to me.

    You guys will be very happy with the pricing. And it sounds like we'll get them delivered to our homes individually as well, and not have to deal with 1 big shipment to the states!

    More to come.

    Hi,

    I would like to sum up to the group purchase. In my case I live in Spain, so things would be much easier for me...Do you know if it is available in 17 or 17.5 inches?

    Still awaiting the prints, so I'm not sure of the exact sizing... Yet.

    Well, even though I just blew all my bicycle money on a motorcycle I'd probably be in depending on delivered price.

    I guess I don't understand this group buy thingie...

    If the frame is out there, in the size that you want, why not just buy it?

    I did, I got it in 4 days, and I couldn't be happier! What do you gain with a group buy? Save a couple bucks?

    Well, of course, that's what it hinges on. All these suppliers have a price break at certain volumes. If it's $10 that might not be worth the hassle, if it's $100 that's a different story .

    Let's see what we, as MTBR.com members, can do about making you the Spanish salesman of the year.
    That would because we are opening our own operation in the States that will deal with all of our products, not just the carbon 29er frames. The On-One brand is about ten years old and Planet X was started 20 years ago. We have more to offer than one frame.

    So what: gray market the same frames without any branding...
    bring in container loads and dump them on eBay for double the cost...
    I'm not sure why someone hasn't already done the deal: overlooked market?

    320 I would be in for the 17.5 Matte. I am USA mainland.
    + 1 on a service like wepay (see below hsakkire good suggestion.)
    https://www.wepay.com/

    Sure sounds like we got a plan coming together. How to do the various ship tos ? It is possible that the supplier would do that for us. Heck they are used to shipping to multiple addresses. We would get the bulk pricing on the frames and then pay the standard shipping rate. Any other good ideas on this one? Or if anyone wants to contact www.gotobike.com.cn and ask them if they will do it that way.

    I'd want to see how it rode first. Ive ridden some carbon frames that were harsher than Al alloy frames. On-one is possibly the cheapest that is known to ride well.

    After a little bit of scratching. We came to a deal from AllCarbonBikes.com and barista.

    $320 and $130 shipping for a 26" Carbon frame.

    WaaaWaaaaaaWAAAAAAAA....

    He couldn't come through with a 29er frame.

    Shiggy at On-One, Do you want to give us a shot at a Group Buy on your new 29er, or should I look elsewere to round something up?

    I'd sign on for a deal on a Lurcher. At first I didn't think it made much sense for them offer a discount on a new, desirable model. However after thinking about it, here in the Front Range of Colorado there sure isn't much of an On-One presence and a group buy could help get the ball rolling for a smaller brand with lots of new products.

    What's a lurcher? The only Carbon 29er from On-One is this:

    http://www.on-one.co.uk/i/q/FROOCAR2...9er-race-frame

    They want a grand for it, when all the other 26er frames are $550. What do you say Shiggy. $515 shipped to each of doors in a group buy?

    Bummer; though I don't see an On-One discount either; they'll probably sell every one they make at the price they're offering without any discounts.

    We are bringing our On-One frames--and not just one model--into the States. Then you can buy whatever you like from us, complete with warranty, customer service, reasonable shipping, and even partial or complete build kits if you want. We will not ship them to you direct from Asia.

    It was worth a shot but I'm ok with that and your price points should be competitive enough to get me on board anyway depending on the timing.

    You should check out gotobike, they sent me a price list and it says that prices on multiple quantities are negotiable. And it looks as if they have the 21in model as well.

    We started building my Chinese Carbon 29er today. We knew we wouldn't get far, because the suspension fork that I orderered will arrive next week some time. Still, we figured we'd see how far we could get...

    Got the bottom bracket and the cranks on. Got the rear derailleur, rear caliper on and rear wheel on. Went to put on the front derailleur, and it didn't fit. And of course, no fork. We were done.

    to be continued...

    Could get a titanium 29er from bikesdirect with a reba race fork for $1099. That's with headset, frame, fork, free ship, and no tax from my understanding. Plus you got a good warranty with them, and the fact that they are based in the US makes it a no risk factor IMO. Just another option...

    I think you are better off buying from jenny at hong-fu bikes. I've heard a lot of good success with them.

    Would you take some pics of the tire clearance? Is that a Little Albert tire? What size?

    No pics yet from the clearance. The rear tire in the image is an Albert 2,1 (but quite narrow I must say), now I have installed a Racing Ralph 2,25 to have a more cushy ride and clearance is on the limit (all installed on a Stans 355 rim) Not too much room in this frame for big tires.
