    I would def. want it to be 170 rear, 100bb if there were to be any interest from me. Likely this will take too long to hash out and the Fatback with the sliders will have my $$

    The problem with an offset cog on an Alfine is that the gearchange mechanism interferes. I have a 10mm offset cog which interferes. A smaller offset may work, but the problem with the large offset cogs is that they wobble and really are only suitable for beach cruiser type use.

    That would make it obsolete immediately. A UK fatbike is going to see a lot of very soft conditions (not necessarily snow in the balmy south) and fatter tyres are the future IMO.

    Swappable dropouts are the answer.

    For Alfine chain line woes, let's compare to a Rohloff. Widest chain line you will get there is 56mm with a 13T cog.

    Assuming you are dealing with a non offset axle, you're limited to 80mm rims and 3.8" tires, and the tire/chain clearance will be very tight.

    Can't really go much wider than that with 135mm OLD. Gear hubs are plainly too narrow for fat tires and symmetry. So until gear hubs get wider, we deal with asymmetry.

    Exactly. This was my point in my earlier post. Well said.

    I've been using my Rohloff in a 47mm drilled out rim for about a year now on my pugs and have hammered it through all sorts and it's stood up to everything just fine.
    Maybe the answer, unfortunately is to go like 907 and have two different frames a 135 and a 170, though it would be good to have 1 frame for everyone.
    I know people worry about how nieche these bikes are but I think they'll really take off in the UK with some exposure and when people see them on normal trails. People just don't get it at the moment and think these bikes are just for the north pole and sahara desert.
    All of the people I ride with get why I ride it now and that's through the summer, when the filth comes they'll really get it.

    Shiggy,
    The new frame and whole idea behind this bike looks great. I know the frame you just recieved is pre production, but are there plans for rack mounts at the back of the frame?

    I just got my first ride on a fat bike the other day (Muk3 at Universal) and I am sold on the concept of fat tires on a rigid frame. I too would rather have a fat bike that is designed for all around riding vs. snow specific. On the Mukaluk, it was difficult to lift the front tire and I am hoping your (OnOne) design will make this a more playful bike. I was looking at going with a 29er front suspension bike for a winter mud / bike packing machine, but I think this option could be more fun.

    Keep up the good work.

    Is the bike built up yet? I would be willing to take it out for a ride and offer my opinions.

    Lots of people have been riding "my" bike. Not me though. Brant won't give it back ;-)

    I don't think there are going to be many changes to the frame. The £999 bike looks to be a very good spec. Not sure how much I can say though...

    The idea was to be full bike to start with, followed by frame (and forks and parts) later.

    hrmm, swap-outs for symm. 135mm wheel would allow those 29-inclined to swap in any standard wagon wheels at will.

    can I trademark "wagon-wheels-at-will"? as the official name for fatbikes easily modded to fit 29er wheels?

    I digress: I'm not into 29ers myself anymore, but there's enough puggners around to make me think some people like them.

    me? I want a nate out back, and my 36 talas with gazzaloddi up front.


    Also: everything still in track for april? (brant said "less than 6 months" about 4 weeks ago so...)

    I'd like a 29" rear wheel setup to keep the role speed acceptable and a fat front, i've ran a 3" Gaz with a carbon fork on the front rides quite nicely but would like the full 4"+ 60mm Rims area for max low pressure so role on On One stocking Fat forks and wheels and tires!!!

    And this little bit comes from Bike radar's London Bike Show coverage:



    On One's mission to do for the fat bike market what they did for singlespeeding looks one step further ahead as the British company were again showing their fat bike prototype. It’ll be officially launched on the longest day of the year – 21 June – to underline that it’s a ‘fat bike’ rather than a ‘snow bike’. Endurance racer John ‘Shaggy’ Ross has been helping with development. On-One will be selling it as a complete bike only and are aiming for around £1,000 complete.
    So, there ya go: Complete only and will be available this coming summer. I'm sure that bums some folks out who were looking to get just a frame set.

    Jumping on the theme of drool factor max here, the announced June release is rocking my world because I decided to put my fat bike jones back into the closet immediately upon learning of development of this frame back in the fall. Presently in NC and likely more time in OR in the future, I'm looking at a fatty as another bike in the trail riding stable along with my Turner 5.Spot and not necessarily as a snow bike. I would like to jump on the purchase list ASAP, so I'm curious as to the availability in the USA, and I would be grateful for any information in that regard, including money up front for pre-orders as an option, whenever those decisions are made by On One.

    Complete only is a minor drag, but so be it. All of us eventually make bikes our own in some form anyway.

    We will be receiving the Fat Bike in Portland about the same time as it arrives in the UK. Preorders will be available once we have a firm delivery date (meaning when the container is on the water).

    Having ridden the one Shaggy had at SSUK, I can say it's going to be a hoot. Very different from my Pugsley. But I'll still wait for a SS version.............

    Rack mounts?

    Hey Shiggy,

    I forgot to ask you a couple of questions when we were on the Brown's camp ride. Will this frame and fork be getting rack attachment points? Also, will there be a raw/no clearcoat version available?

    This frame looks even better in the flesh. I can't comment on the ride because the frame was too small for me and was wearing drop bars.

    Thanks.

    Shiggy-
    I imagine the whole build spec might be in flux for a while, or do the photos accurately show what to expect? I thought On One was working on their own rim design. Can you speak to that a bit?

    Just wondering, from the article, the pictures here and on On One's website. John Ross was sponsored a frame and a rare DTSwiss 165mm rear hub by Sandman for last years Iditabike. He's now apparently helping On One with the design of their new fatbike, aimed at trailriding too. And his Sandman wheels are in the On One prototype... so excuse me for asking (with a wink) that save for the components, other things might have drifted over too ?

    But basically I'm more interested in how you adapted a 165mm hub to 170mm spacing and align the brake caliper ? Other 12mm thru-axle insert which offsets it to the left - I can't see any spacers on the rear brake caliper ?

    The builds you see are mostly using existing components. We will have our own for production. Brant is working on them.

    The frame, as shown, is 100% my design. The first I heard of John is when Brant introduction him to me (via email) as a tester of the bike.

    I do not know what they used on the UK bike. The frame does have Swapouts, easy to add a spacer.

    The DT hub is more common in the US as Santana uses them on their tandems.

    Is that fork finish a new option, or just for prototypes?

    Fair enough, apparently John footed Sandman parts to put the On One showbike in the UK together. They just might have done it a bit more subtle with sponsored parts . John even shoulders his Sandman standing in water on the On One website (but then, the picture below that is his old Pugs...):
    Fat bike proto in testing | Products | News - On One Bikes
    They not only lacked parts, but also "action" pictures when putting that page together .

    I'm puzzled though about why they keep that 165mm hub (which has been discontinued for at least 3 years by DT Swiss, they're VERY rare) in your 170mm frame. Apart from it being a bombproof hub with a freewheel easy to service.
    From the looks of it they added a 5mm spacer/derailleur hanger to the right, between the cassette and the frame. Which kind of puts the chain/tire clearance down the drain.
    It's got even less chain clearance now than a regular 165mm frame, kind of the opposite what a Pugs does with a 135mm hub.
    Other than getting it ready in a hurry for the show, I can't figure out a practical reason?

    Hey Conrad, yeah, that's your hub! The original build, other than f&f and headset, was all stuff I had here. It had a Hadley rear hub on Flat-tops. The build pictured up there has a few of the parts I have been using but On-one put their finishing kit on for the show. The final bike is going to have pretty much all different parts. I've been running the On-one rim on the front for a while but was struggling to get a well priced 170 hub. That frame and hub are spaced on both sides to get it to work, like you say-; its not optimum, it's not a design feature, it was just done because it was a nice hub that was about and I was in a rush!

    I'm still riding the Gobi as well- sporting SC32s now. Lots of fun :-)

    And to be 100% clear- the design was by Shiggy. I haven't changed any angles or dimensions. I haven't even compaired angles or dimensions. It rides quite differently to the Gobi. I'd guess seat tube diametes and the bb were the only common factors.

    Still TBC I think. We have 2 that we have been talking about. It'll be one you haven't seen and will be On-one branded. Both are very nice.

    on one's making a fatbike frame and fork.
    on one's doing their own fatbike tires.
    on one's got a line on relatively inexpensive carbon rims.

    hrmmm... probably not TOO feasible but... y'know...

    when the rims come out on their own, any chance of a 36 hole version?

    Looks like this one doesn't have the swapouts for different dropout configurations? I'm hoping to run this one single speed with no tensioner and have the option to run gears...

    That's the biggest thing I've seen missing from the currently available stock fat bikes. Most of the single speeds are custom frames.

    The Moonlander, Pugsley offer dropouts for gears or SS. I believe Fatback & 907 are coming out with sliding dropouts for next season as well.

    I forgot to clarify...non surly, with some sort of sliding dropout so I don't have to worry about magic gears, tensioners, etc.. 170 non offset frame; ideally aluminum; and trail oriented geo. I'm never going to see snow.

    That's why the on-one frame is very appealing for me.

    anyway what are you riding?!

    thanks!

    I'm guessing they may have slacked it a degree... just guessing.

    Not that those of us who want too couldn't figure out a way, but don't see any rack mounts.

    Also, I'm a bit "knock knee'd"... have any of you guy's that have ridden it had issues bumping the top tube(s)? Looks like they're down low enough that it probably wont be an issue...

    I would love to hear some news, updates, whatever!

    New protos have just arrived. Not built yet.

    Large is currently 610mm ETT iirc. Because of the bent seat tube the length grows a lot as the seat post goes up do if you have long legs it makes the working TT dimension though longer, if you see why I mean.

    Magic gear.

    I have the large sample frame here, that one is the small. Will do pics once it's built. Spec. soon, once its done. Production bikes looking like October, due to the tyre time scales.

    Latest Update From On One

    Here's the latest on the On One fatbike from their site:

    We're nearly ready to launch the production run of our Fatbike, having recieved three final sample frames just before Mountain Mayhem. One of which we managed to convince team rider Jason Miles to ride, solo for 24hrs. For money.
    We're just experimenting a little with angle-changing headsets and a couple of different fork rakes to double check our final front end geometry, before hitting the GO button on frame production.
    Our Fat Tyre, which up until now we've only seen in wooden form, will be complete early August, which means we're now looking at a mid October landing time for the complete Fatbikes.
    Spec will be 1x9, with hydraulic brakes, our wheels and tyres. Spacing is 135mm front and 170mm rear. Dropouts are vertical only. Finishing kit will be on-one or Truvativ. Retail price is trying to be around £1000.
    More news when we know it!

    This is sweet! The October time frame works perfectly for me. Anyone know if there will be a waiting list or something that an interested buyer can get on sooner rather than later? I want one and I want one early!

    Well done, gotta admit, that is a great price for a really good looking bike!
    How much does it weigh & did it ever get rack mounts fitted?

    Rims are 72 but give a wider tyre profile than the 80s I have here.

    Geometry is fixed AFAIK. Gussets added at the front end. BB dropped. HA slackened a bit. Rake increased. I'm riding the large sample now, it's ace. I've asked Brant about the due date, cos I don't know. I'm looking forward to using the tyres- I've been loving Shiggy's other designs.

    I know that few people run fatbikes ss, but it's a viable option and On One have quite a bit of experience when it comes to ss.

    £1000ish and October in time for Winter, tyres which look better for trail / forest useage put the likely £1500 29x3" Surly out of the picture I guess until next year anyway.

    Tyre + Wheel + Fork available seperately if I decide to 1/2 fat my 456 ??

    A quick measurement gives 125mm, so IIRC that's fine.

    Forgot to add that I changed the fork crown to accommodate bigger tyres better. Results in a better look IMO as well.

    They do on the first sample frames. Test fit a BFL on hundies with room to spare.

    Really interested in getting one of these for bike packing. (Not sure my Whippet would cope!)

    Like others have mentioned, rack mounting seems a little scant on these pre-production frames. The latest pic of the forks has me more concerned, as the crown doesn't appear to be drilled either

    While for me it's not a deal breaker, I'm planning on pre-ordering as soon as the order book opens, as I can see a few workarounds (reverse inserted star nuts, p-clips etc.) it would be nice to know if some of these details will be addressed in the production version.

    Straight steerer is compatible with our slackset for further geometry adjustment.

    Thanks for posting up some new info! Just waiting around for the preorder now... This still seems like the best trail fat complete out the door and I can juryrig a SS setup if needed.

    So are On-One sticking with the dog breeds for their bikes? (Whippet, Lurcher)

    If so surely there can be only one name for this bike: the St. Bernard!
