    I've got a 28t MRP Bling Ring on the way. Just shipped from MRP yesterday. I'm trying to build it up as a semi light DH bike that can still climb when needed.

    Parts I'm using:

    Spank Spike Evo 35 w/Hope pro 2 front and Canfield 9t rear hub
    Boxxer R2C2
    X0 Brakes 200mm F/R
    X0 shifter
    X0 short cage rear D
    X0 crank with 28t Bling Ring
    Answer Protaper DH
    Giant Contact DH direct mount stem
    Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5 tires
    Thomson Elite seatpost
    Canfield Crampons in purple as soon as they are available

    I'm going to try both the CCDB and Vector HLR and see which I like better.

    Still deciding on headset

    Nice build! My bling ring shipped yesterday too, I was waiting for 3 weeks, so once I have that my One will be ready.

    Lyrik 170 dh air
    ccdb air
    S1400 + 28t bling ring
    9t setup
    x7/x9 mix

    I've weighed everything and think it will be about 32lbs.

    Micro drive + 28t Bling + XO =

    I was a little worried about range, but after racing that combo on a fast course all my worries were left in the dust.

    Very reliable hub, very happy with the Micro Drive.

    bigcrs - That's great to hear. Can't wait to try it out for myself.

    I think my build is going to end up in the 35-36lb range. I'll be interested to see how it climbs, even though I'm setting it up as a DH bike.

    Can everyone who has a 2012 One share their crank length and experiences? Thinking of going with 165mm cranks. I tested a Specialized Status earlier today, as it has almost precisely the same geo as the One, and it comes stock with 165mm cranks. I had no issue with them at all, but this was a parking lot test ride, so it would be nice to get feedback from you guys that have been on the trails with the One.

    Due to the test ride, however, I did manage to figure out that I want a Large One. Still looking forward to testing the suspension on either one of the bikes Sean and Vin bring down to Seattle, or Eric's build once that is complete. But yeah....no way I'd be a medium, and I really knew this in my heart, but was apprehensive about the wheelbase. The Status had a longer wheelbase in Large (almost 48" I believe), and this only made me happier, haha! I'm a noob, so stability trumps speed, cornering, etc without question. I loved the way the cockpit and bike felt, and though the suspension designs are clearly different, the geo was so similar (reach, effective top tube, seat tube length, bar width, stem length, wheelbase), that I am certain a Large is the way to go. Just need to sort out crank length and decide on color (Black/Blue vs Silver/Black), and I'm set!

    Thing you have to remember about cornering, nimbleness etc is that this is a sub 40 pound bicycle. Its not hard to over come stability, which does come into play when its a 240 pound dirt bike. Stability is your friend and I believe contrary to the geometry in XC bikes, it enhances low speed control and ease of control as you have less concerns with balance.

    Crankwise, lots of bikes come with shorter cranks, especially in the small sizes. My Pitch had either 170 or 165 and I'm pretty sure thats what I bought to replace it which is what I run on my ONE. You can gain some crank lenght buy using Crampon pedals too while still reducing pedal strikes compared to thick pedals.

    im 6", riding a large with 170mm cranks, 40mm stem and 760 mm bars with a 160 mm fox van upfront.
    pedaling is awesome when you time it right, i can see how i could go with 165 mm cranks, but im good with 170mm :P

    if you wanna pedal in rockgardens, get a 165mm crank with the crampon ultimate pedals.

    I'm not finished yet, but it's at least starting to look like a bike. Waiting on my rear casette and need to do some cable routing and work. Also need to send the fork off to get an Avalanche cartridge.

    Sweet job xpeppyx. I've been holding back but pretty sure I am pulling my 180 off for next year and trying a dual crown on my 12.

    Good luck with it!

    XO DH question.

    Just got my 28t bling and micro G3. Was curious how you guys like the carbon cranks on your Ones?

    Thanks!

    Beautiful color combo xpeppyx

    Throw a micro guide and you have even more BB clearance!

    Loving the skulls on the fork too!

    j-drop is a really good and tough trail, just getting to it and out from it is a bit of a pain. in my opinion definitely the most difficult local trail.

    Haven't really had a chance to push the one on that trail yet, still busy fiddling away with my shock and fork, getting close to dialed in now.

    rode it pretty cautiously in video.

    Very nice!

    I wanted to go purple as well but I think I will go orange to match my new truck.

    Has anybody run a 650b wheel up front on a One? What fork did you run and did you like, dislike it? Coming off a Lenz 29er and I've grown to like larger wheels just not 29er large, seems like the 650b up front could be a good option but im worried that the bike might be to slack for climbing and have wheel flop? The 650 rim is only 1" larger than the 26 so the wheel will only sit about 13mm higher than a 26, if I use a shorter travel fork like a 170 then it should sit about as tall as a 180 fork. Thought about a Fox Talas 180, then the fork will sit about as high as a Fox 40 and in the 140 position it would be like a 150mm fork. Any thoughts?

    I've been thinking the same thing of late. Currently have a 170mm 66 of my one and I have previously used a 2.8 Michelin Comp 32 with the fork. Just guessing but that tire is absolutely massive and I'd be willing to bet that it is bigger than say a 650b 2.35 Hans Dampf? May have to take some measurements with it mounted and get to the bottom of this. I do recall loving that tire and it's ride qualities and am starting to suspect it may partially have been because it's diameter allowed me to roll certain terrain that a smaller tire would get hung up on. As I'm usually running my One in 7" mode I could also use a slightly higher bb. Does anyone have a guess as to how much my bb height would rise?

    I ran my 2011 ONE 650b front ans back... with 2.1 neo-motos(Pacentti) Used both the 66 from Marzzochi and the Xfusion 650b/26 vengance no issue with either. I don't think you can put a 650 rear on the 2012 though

    I thought the geometry from 11 to 12 was pretty much the same but only slightly higher BB. What would change that the frame could no longer accommodate a 659 b tire?

    It was already a close fit on my 2011 but I think when they changed the brace in the rear triangle it lost that gap. I know a few have tried it on the '12 but wouldn't fit.

    Getting close to finishing my 2012 One light DH build. It's going to be my park bike plus some of are knarlier rocky trails bike. I got a Type 2 X9 medium cage RD and can't seem to figure out how it will clear the 36T cassette. I thought I had confirmed that med cage was good (this is CB 9T hub and 28tooth bling ring).

    This is my first ever bike build, but I've been pretty successful in adjusting RD and FDs before.

    Mine is set up the same rear derailleur and 36 tooth with a 28 or 32 up front. No issues. Set your low and high limits and double check the B tension screw for jockey wheel clearance on the 36 tooth cog

    2012 One!!!-img_0514_3.jpg2012 One!!!-img_0518_2.jpg

    LOVE this bike! Great climber, great descender. Climbs at least as well as my 26" Bandit.

    Highlights:

    -33 lbs. even
    -medium frame
    -CC DBair is using the factory-supplied compression and rebound settings.
    -CK Inset 5 headset
    -Vengeance 170 HLR air fork
    -SixC 785mm bar
    -Havoc 50mm stem
    -XT 775 brakes with 180 rotors front/back, Goodridge hoses
    -Same XO/Bling Ring/11-36t drive train that many are using. Crank length is 170mm and that seems plenty short.
    -Crampon Ultimate pedals (GREAT pedals!)
    -Flow rims (non-EX version)
    -Sapim Force spokes
    -Hope Pro 2 Evo front hub
    -CK 142x12 rear hub
    -Muddy Mary 2.35's trailstar compound, tubeless

    Bottom bracket height is 14.0" in the 8" travel setting and 13.5" in the 7" travel setting with the 565mm a-to-c fork and external lower cup headset.

    A bit pre-mature photo shoot, but after putting the wheels on, was excited to take some photos. Still got some cable work to do, all the chain, bleed the brakes and set up for fit, but still photo worthy.

    Was a bit shocked by the weight...my scale says 38lbs as seated. That is with the CCDB, DH tubes, 2.5" DH tires...but expected < 35lbs. Then again my scale could be off.

    Nice job. I'd be a little shocked too, you've spent some coin. By the looks of it, that should be 36ish as it sits. What size frame, and is that a world cup? Ditch the tubes and go tubeless and get some Ti on that shock. Then I'd weigh it with a different scale.....

    Thanks. Yeah I spent some coin. I really only opted for the ENVE rims cause I thought they could run tubeless like my AM ones on my all around bike (they can't according to ENVE). Also, ENVE has supposedly some of the best CS and durability (despite that one PB review). I am a tad regretful for the decision TBH cause 823s could run tubeless easy and the DH tubes probably make up a large part of the difference in #s. They are also a royal PITA to get tires onto! I did a lot of swearing this morning.

    Its a WC air fork. I was planning on a Ti shock cause, WTH, I've spent enough already, why not go for broke? Truth is, I only spend a lot on my hobbies and have a good job, so in the end I think it works out well. My car was $5k. haha.

    I knew the tires/tubes and shock were on the heavy side, which is ok, as I have a season pass to our local lift access. I didn't expect it to be quite so heavy.

    Parts list off hand is:
    Deity Dirty30 bars
    XT brakes
    Hayes rotors
    ENVE DH rims, CK front, CB 9t rear
    X9 cranks + bling ring + micro guide
    X9 RD
    Maxxis DHF, front 42a, rear 60a
    Maxxis DH tubes
    Thompson seatpost
    Deity direct mount stem.
    ODI Rogue grips
    WTB saddle
    Hope QR seatclamp
    Twenty6 Ti Predator pedals (only thing, the pins don't last near rocks and they tenderize any flesh)

    First bike I've ever built. Learning process!

    It's a sick build for sure! I'm a bit like you, a lot of my coin go's into bikes. The amount I have spent on different suspension setups alone would pay for carbon rims. It's a healthy hobby.

    Your going to have a blast on that rig, I love my One. I'm really looking forward to my next The One!

    Oh man, ditch the DH tubes and get some light or even just normal tubes. You do not need DH tubes when running DH tires and that right there will save you 2 pounds. If you are that worried about pinch flats then maybe DH tube in rear but at that point you aren't that worried about weight.

    My One is at 34.5 lbs with a totem air, xfusion vector with ti coil. Muddy Mary FR tire up front tubeless and a tubed rear Schwalbe with snakeskin but single ply. Other parts are comparable but my wheels are Stans Flow ex so likely a little heavier than yours. You can easily find some weight to lose in there and my money lies with your rubber setup.

    My build is a lot like yours and it came in at 35.5lbs. Same bars, stem, ccdb, seatpost. I have a boxxer coil and carbon crank arms but I'm running tubeless. My wheels are probably heavier too.

    Cheaper WTB saddles are heavy as hell. You could save up to 200ish grams on the saddle alone if it's a particularly heavy one. Ancient Hayes rotors are pretty chunky compared to SRAM or Shimano's current stuff as far as rotors go.

    Those are the two biggest things that stand out to my weight weenie filter other than going tubeless. My One was 32.5 lbs with light tires. It has an air Lyrik, a CCDB-Air, and AM rims though.
