    47.5 cm bb drop would be a crude rotary hoe.

    And a blocus of the Vienna Express by Egypt on the Suez Canal. The increasing war in Gaza could make the "muslim brothers" egyptian government slow down or block the traffic. To put pressure on the international community, to support the Palestinian. Which could result in delays. However, this channel is a huge source of income for the Egyptian government. Channel block is a double-edged sword.

    Yet another frame spec question. Does the bottom bracket have a 2.5mm spacer that can be removed from the drive side? Just wondering if use of a yess etr-b might help make SS work with this frame.

    No. I mean mm.

    BB Drop is the dimension the BB centre is below the wheel centreline.

    It doesn't, but the BB has a E-specification thingy and deep cups so it should be all fine.

    If I had to guess from that pic, it looks like 32:17 (using a half link), just a little tall for my liking. There's always other options for tensioning a ss anyway.
    It was 32:16 from memory.

    My mistake I thought BB drop was the clearance betwee BB and gound.

    Thanks for clarifying!

    I'll be my first fat frame, other frame goes from about 55 to 60, even the beargrease from Salsa that's thinked for suspension fork (I think so).

    So, my question is: If I put a suspended fork (let's say 80mm) on the Fatty, how the feeling could change?

    The Fatty comes with a 470mm rigid fork, which is approximately the same length as an 80mm sagged suspension fork, so other than the difference in offset, it should feel much the same wrt bb height etc.

    I've found the BB on fatbikes is often too low for the sort of places it can take me. Sticking to singletrack and the sort of places I take my 29er, no problem.

    But once I venture into proper offroad I'm banging my feet too often, so the higher BB on the On-One should be better.

    Agreed, most fatbike BB are way too low for my liking, my 907 included. OK for stability, but for playing around in the woods/rock crawling, the on one BB height makes much more sense.

    So you keep telling us

    Interested, if this bike is all so trail focused, why have you speced 80mm rims? Most folk on here would use 47mm rims would fit the bill better? Seems good enough for Sandman "trail" bikes.





    Funny, I was out riding trails in the Cairngorms at the weekend with another fatty & 2 other bikes. Some of the best trails in the country & we all had to grind away on the granny ring to paddle through the soft stuff & get traction on the rear. If I had bought an On one, I would be pushing my way up. Just sayin.

    There's a good question I guess, I've seen someone else ask, but missed the answer if there was one. Could the FATTY take a granny ring setup or not at all?

    For those SS'ers out there it looks like 32:20 with a slight bit of chain stretch might work as a magic gear. Nice climbing ratio.

    I ordered an On-One Fatty after the email below. I plan to go 2x10, exact details TBD. My guess is that On-One went 1x10 to keep the price at 1000 GBP. With 127 tpi tires, hydraulic disks, etc. something had to give. (Brits call a derailleur a "mech" BTW)

    Me: But are the cable guides/stops there for me to make the bike a 2x or 3x if I buy one? The pictures on your website seem to show them...
    Hi

    just had a look at the technical drawings. they certainly do have the mounts for the front mech cable routing.

    It comes with 70mm rims. I have 47 and 70 mm wheelsets for my Sandman. I prefer the tyre profile of the 70's. Also I don't think a 70mm rim won't allow the tyre to fit in the Flame forks. Don't you get banned from here for suggesting to go thinner?

    Specing is always going to be a compromise. People on here want 100mm rims and 47mm rims, 135 rear ends and 170 rear ends, more gears and fewer gears... You can't please everyone all the time. I hope people like it, because IMO it's a great bike, especially at the 1000 price point.

    I had to dig deep to find this picture, it's the Flame with a 80mm rim and a HD. It should ring a bell .
    For trail riding I personally prefer the 47mm's. With each size up you feel the bike becoming more sluggish in the steering compartment. For slow trail work and rock crawling even 100mm's are ok, but if you want to nail it...

    Am I being scammed, or is this for real? I am at the planetX website to order one of these, and it is less than $1400 shipped to my house. Is this the real deal. Is this not the best deal ever on a fat bike?

    well, I just ordered it. only were showing one size: 18", which is a little small, but definitely ridable if the TT is decent length.

    I went to look again if another size was available, and none are shown. I guess I picked the last one.
