    Don't get it

    Isn't Planet-X and On-One the same thing ? One for road/urban bikes and stuff and other one for mtb.
    Does that mean Lurcher is definitively kaputt-muerte-dead now ?

    Lurcher no.
    Harry, yes. Let's say 240lb. That seems reasonable.

    Tyre clearance is good. We haven't found anything too big to fit yet, but will keep trying.

    Hey Brant

    Any weights for a med size frame? Also what BB type will it be.

    This is a much better looking frame than the pregnant looking On One Race and Lurcher.
    Its also one of the few frames I've seen with short chainstays and steep HTA. Should be and XC weapon.

    Nice! Real Nice ...

    Frame looks sweet.

    The geometry on the fork seems a bit wordy. Geo chart states it is based on a fully extended 80mm travel fork (486mm?). The description states works best with 100mm fork ... I know a 100mm fork (506mm) will sag to about a fully extended 80mm fork.

    In any case looks nice ... real race bike....loooong top tube... stays are a great length.

    Sweet price!

    Keep up the great work ... I am still waiting for the Lurcher

    Ditto. The Carbon SS choices are severely lacking. Actually, at this point anything besides a steel SS and the pickins get slim.

    frame weight is 2lb 10oz. still a couple parts being swapped around but it was 18lb 9oz as seen in photos. I have a sid xx fork that i will be swapping back and forth so i guess 20.5 ish with suspension. i also just exchanged the niner carbon fork for an rdo fork with 15mm axle and converting the front wheel for that so that may add alittle. pieced it together with some deals I found here and there and some ebay deals. stem is the only used part. full sram XO 2x10 , american classic race wheelset with tubeless rocket ron tires, easton carbon post and bars, easton stem, eggbeater 3's. still waiting on a white selle italia saddle and white lock on grips. built for under $3800 with both forks.

    planet X dirty harry ride report. what a great bike for the money. I have 2 friends with niner air9 carbon's one an rdo. are the niners better looking bikes, 100%. are they over twice as nice looking, maybe. Does my $799 frame ride almost as well as there $2000 frames, YES. I honestly did not have super high expectations and was real close to pulling the trigger on an RDO. I am so glad I didn't. I have ridden all 3 bikes back to back to back. Don't get me wrong the RDO is super nice. It is alittle more complaint alittle lighter(my buddy does have it built up as a $6000 plus bike) but really isn't that much different. we both ride mediums and the geometry is almost identical. My only complains are the decals and the non internel cable routing but for what I saved I can live with both. If you want a light super stiff no frills carbon frame for $800 bucks you can't go wrong. plus only took a week and a half to get to me from england.
