    On One Fat Bike Frame

    Brant Richards is back at On One and today he posted these images to his blog: It was like that when I got here #oosnowbike Shed Fire : Designing for On-One, Titus and Planet X from Calderdale.

    Obviously not Brant's design, but we'll see what becomes of it.

    Aluminum, yes.

    Can't really see them, but it hints at having the swap outs. This would allow someone to get a single speed set up, and then trade out the drop outs for a geared set up when wanted.

    Obviously we'll have to wait for more details, but I like the styling, and frame bags should work well with this.

    I have a 1.5" head tube on my diy frame, and a Cane Creek ZS44 headset was relatively cheap, and works okay. Very future proof, you could run forks with tapered steer tubes.

    It's Shiggy's design. There are two of them. Headtube is 44mm. Doesn't really need to be, but hey, why not, it fits the downtube nicely and maybe we can make some mad singlesided fork like I keep wanting to make. Long way to go yet.

    ps: I did Iditabike in '96 (14th) and '97(6th), but did it on Snowcats and Conti 2.2in tyres.

    The top tube / chain stay thing suggests vertical compliance but how does that match with using aluminum?

    Twin top tubes make me worry about the width and hitting my knees on them. I've never ridden a bike with twin top tubes, so my worry could be totally groundless.

    Fatbikes have 100mm wide bbshells with 148mm wide bottom brackets.......your knees are safe but your wallet is not

    No.

    Infact Shiggy wants to deflect the issue that we're "late" for this year (but in time for next) by calling it a "Rock Crawler". I wonder what a bike with a slack head angle and a 6in suspension fork would be like with a 4in rear tyre (I'd just take off, right?).

    Lots of fun, no doubt.

    Can you tell us what axle to crown length it is designed off of?

    This frame may have just answer a lot of debate for me!

    Currently is 470mm a/c with a 71deg head angle. This may change. I certainly want to mess around with head angles a bit.

    Oh sweet, I was so hoping my Enabler fork would work well with it.

    Now please tell me it's a symmetrical design?????

    Any hints to chainstay length?

    About the only thing different I'd want on that is an EBB, and that's simply because it allows you to make adjustments to the chainline at the front.

    Symmetrical, 170mm (it says on the drawing), 445mm chainstays.

    But it's just these two first samples. Anything could change. And might/probably will.

    A slacker head angle please, more like 68. The fork can be 2-3" of travel. Maybe a soft tail?
