    Anyone Own a On-One 456 Carbon?

    I am thinking about picking up a ON-ONE 456 carbon and building it up with some parts I have available. Does anyone own one of these? I am planning on building it with a Fox 32 with 140mm travel, does anyone have experience with the handling with this setup? Also, what are your impressions of the carbon frame....i.e. durability, stiffness, etc.

    Hey. I got mine delivered a week ago. Built it up with parts lying around plus am sharing forks with my FS bike till I can afford a pair just for this.
    Impressions:
    Quality seems good but if you're after fine finishes etc - forget it. Things like clear coat aren't top shelf but hey - you get what you pay for.
    Ride is brilliant. I was nervous about going back to a hardtail after 10 years of FS but this things is amazing. It is laterally VERY stiff but rides increadibly compliantly. The carbon does what they say it does - absorbs a huge amount of vibration and just takes the sting out of sharp edge hits. The geometry is awesome too but be warned that the top tubes are looooooong. I always ride a medium and have bought the 18 inch and am running a 50mm. For reference - I am 6 foot tall.
    So there you have it - so far so good and for the money - you can't really go wrong.

    Im extremely curious why you got rid of it. I intended to buy this same frame when my tax check comes. What did you not like about it?
