    So the dual top tube is stiffer than a single tube? It could be an additional place to strap on gear like fishy poles or IK paddles.

    They may not offer this one in BLACK anyway.

    I just posted in the fatback size thread asking if the fatback is the best tool for Florida or do you all think this one will be better. Once again it will never see snow, Thank you all

    Should be stiff laterally. Might (might) have some vertical give. I like the look and it should make it visually less bulky.

    Is this trendsetter for future not-just-for-snow fat-fun-bikes? Sign me up. The head angle may not be ideal for snow/sand but there's no shortage of other frame choices for that purpose. For general trail riding, it's fine... plus, the big headtube and 29"er fork length makes it pretty versatile. The low twin toptube looks very useful... begs for a matching above/below pack.

    Just make sure there's plenty of mounts for bottles/accessories and clearance for Moonlander rubberz!

    Sandman's designs are for the most part all centered around that concept (not just for snow).

    Not seein' to many Sandman's making it state-side yet though... unless your flying over and bringing it back yourself. Any news on they're German Answer Fat Fork project?

    This will compliment my 1/2 fat Jones nicely - sign me up!

    How about a carbon truss fork - just to be different LOL.

    You are right- I think there are only two over here so far. I was more mentioning that the On-One frame isn't the first to be designed with more than snow and sand in mind. For what it's worth, shipping my Sandman over here cost only 60 euro, and for some reason I wasn't charged any customs duty. But, the exchange rate is not in our favor right now, so unfortunately us Americans will to pay a premium for any Sandman products.
    Haven't heard much on the German A forks lately, but it sounds as if they have held up with zero issues so far. When I last spoke to Conrad they were still working on coming up with a reliable tool-less wheel removal system, and deciding what to do about hubs (custom wide hub, or provide brake and axle spacers to use standard 20 mm thru hubs).
    Sorry for the derail- I really like the looks of the On-One- particularly the dual top tubes.

    On-one fat bike proto

    It's built now. Fairly random parts and broken brakes but the first ride was good. Second ride was some bloke I met at the pub. He says its "amazing".

    31lb as it stands. Flat-Top 80mms, Larrys, 30t chainring, 11-34 cassette, Sunline 762mm bars.

    Fork clearance is not quite as much as I wanted. May need to reduce the angle of the struts.
