    On-One will sell heaps of these. They will fit all frames designed for a 470mm fork, and with the 55mm offset, reduces trail to improve handling. Hell, I might even get one for my Specialized Carve Pro and run fat front for a while.

    I'll probably have one of these as well. Assuming it's full carbon (not AL steer tube) for that weight......

    Not sure how you guys aren't able to click the link.

    I'm guessing based off the on-one fatty it will only be available tapered, so no-go on the bikes direct fats. Maybe they will make a straight version in addition to the tapered which would be cool.

    Nope, it's straight 1 1/8" steer tube. It will fit everything.

    Just going by their website. For headset it says "Tapered Headset 1 1/8 inch - 1.5 inch". Might as well fit a tapered fork and design one if you have it available to you. Like I said, would be cool if they make it in both.

    But if they did that, the price would increase.

    Yeah. I'm really hoping the price will be lower than the Carver but with the same quality as that fork. I would like to lighten my moonlander up a little, but not that concerned about it to spend $300.

    If you mean the Motobecanes from Bikes direct, mine looked like 1-1/8" straight when I had it out to grease the headset.

    Interesting. I have to look again. Wasn't thinking about it at the time, so I may have missed it.

    Photo's? From the specs on their page and all the photos... I don't see a tapered head tube. But it could be the computer playing tricks on me... you have the actual bike.

    Right, unless there are photo angle or switcheroo tricks going on, that's not a tapered headset tube.

    Maybe I had too many beers? I don't have time to pull the headset apart right now, but maybe somebody else does. The pictures on the Moto/BD page of the fork are mine; I only took a shot of the crown/race. FWIW, the BD specs are as follows: 26" RIGID FORK, ALLOY STEM, 1-1/8" THREADLESS, ALLOY BLADE ?34.9mmx2.0 T TAPER ?28mmx200L, W/O PIVOT, W/DISC MOUNT ONLY.

    I don't feel like dropping the fork. But, I did measure the top AND bottom of the head tube at the very end where the headset starts.

    It is 50mm at both locations. I find it highly unlikely that the steer tube is tapered since both ends of the tube match.

    A straight 44mm ID head tube can use a tapered fork with the proper headset. Fairly common with steel and ti frames as it is cheaper/easier than making an actually tapered head tube.

    They (On-One) state on the Instagram post "it is not tapered, so it will fit everything" Can not be much more clear than that.

    The Moto is definitely not tapered. My apologies! Wrenching while drinking beer sometimes confuses this mechanic. Sorry to get so off topic. Cheers!

    Yeah, that wasn't there the other day Good to know though. Also looks like $60 cheaper than the Carver. Hope the quality is there.

    Nope... the only comment from them was "@205sam yes. In stock now." when I first looked and posted the picture. But I suppose we could argue about it

    Either way... case solved. It's Friday... and the sun is out where I'm at

    Yep, it was there before I made my post earlier.

    Anywho, this looks like a great way to drop a bunch of weight...like err, 1.5lbs, lol. Plus, it might be relatively easy to find a buyer for a steel fat-fork.

    I'm hoping for some good priced full packages with the fork and upgraded parts (like brakes etc).

    Anyone know if on one usually are quick going from production to shipping? I have no reference wether we're looking at a week or 6 months.

    When they're ready to sell, they're good at announcing it.
    They're very good at being able to say "it's on the boat and on it's way" but between prototype and on the shelf can sometimes be a guessing game because they pay attention to QC and are fine with delaying things to get the product right before it ships.

    I'm interested to know if anyone without an On-One Fatty has plans to put his fork on their bike.

    £149.99 uk RETAIL.
    Which I guess is $200.
    Specs all the same (including straight steerer and IS disc mount).

    I hope it doesn't only come in white. Otherwise... great job on the weight.

    Edit... dang... didn't realize it was going to be the same specs as the aluminum on-one fork. So 470 fork length only? Looks like a no-go option for anyone with a Surly

    On to the Sarma Hoboy 450 carbon.

    Excellent news! Getting excited! Am I presuming correctly it will be a direct swap from the standard Fatty fork?

    Couple of quick questions. Carbon or AL steer tube? Also if white only, are the decals under clear coat?

    Also comes in a raw carbon matt black with orange splatty decals inside fork legs and smaller on-one logos on outside. We are very proud of our products and have no desire to sell them blank.
    Carbon steerer.
    Direct swap over.

    More guff I wrote for the website:-

    Using the same geometry as our proven chromoly fatty fork, this model is a retrofit or upgrade for any frame. Dimensions are 470mm from axle-to-crown, with a 55mm fork offset. This gives perfect handling with our Fatty, balancing rake and contact patch of those big tyres perfectly.
    Manufactured from high quality Mitsubishi carbon fibre, we blend the layup to give amazing strength and the correct stiffness in the directions we want it.
    A standard IS Disc mount is a swap-over from the regular Fatty fork, allowing compatibility with everyone’s brakes.
    Our Fatty runs 10mm front axle with regular disc brake spacing, so you’re either OK to go with this (if you have our bike) or need a handful of spacers to move the disc across (if you have someone elses system).
    To make this a fork for any bike, we’ve also (perhaps surprisingly) used a standard, straight 1.125in steerer tube. Though technically, this was a harder engineering process to achieve than the tapered steerer tube you might have expected, we wanted to offer this fork to the widest possible range of riders, and again, allow that easy swap-over from the standard fatty fork.
    Huge clearance on our Floater tyres. We’re seeking to check clearance on other wider rims and bigger tyres, but we’re seeing clearance for a tyre 120mm wide at a distance of 360mm from the axle centre if that helps you.
    Available in a colour matched gloss white, or a minimal matt lacquered, orange decalled model, this is the upgrade for your fatty or any other bike out there.
    Limited availability, first come, first served.

    This is what I was hoping for. I have no problem sporting the On One logos, was just hoping there was a version without the fatty decal since I'd be putting it on a different brand bike.

    Thanks for the info.

    Brant- I do have one other question. Do you guys support the use of a rack like the one pictured below with this carbon fork?

    $193 shipped to US. Might be the first part for my new bike!

    I am wondering where I can get that "hugh" tire mentioned.

    "Our Fatty runs 10mm front axle with regular disc brake spacing, so youre either good to go with this (if you have our bike), or may need a handful of spacers to move the disc across (if you have someone elses system)."


    Correct me if I'm wrong but from what I understand the front On One fatty wheel has rear hub disc offset meaning you need 5mm spacers to move the brake disc out to fit this fork- so really it's not good to go.

    If this fork is developed with rear hub disc spacing it would be good to go with On One front hub but wouldn't work for any other regular front hub disc spacing.

    On one please clarify??

    Anyone ever run a 470mm (or longer than the stock 447mm) fork on a Surly fat bike? 23mm is less than an inch - so basically just a little higher headtube and slacker geo, correct? Or will it put too much stress on the fork? Questions, questions huh?

    Got one in black. Look forward to seeing what happens with 2012 mukluk geometry and Bud. Should be interesting. Doubt it will be worse.

    If that's the case it won't work with front disc spacing hub as essentially you can't shim down.

    It's front disc spacing on a 135mm hub.
    Sold out of first batch.

    I get all confused about disc spacings. But it's all the same as our chromoly one which uses regular front brake calipers.

    Same problem here...
    I've been waiting all day in front of the On One website. Then I had to go to an appointment and when I got back all forks were sold out...

    What a shame!

    You're quite right. It does use a standard front caliper vertical position, but the rear hub and disc mount position horizontally relative to the dropout is 135mm rear disc standard.

    Finally but too late. I too was stalking on website and facebook hoping this fork would show while winter. I just broke down and bought a carver and next week this pops up. Bastards - I would've saved $100.
    Big thanks for putting the cupcake w/ sprinkles on the inside of fork, so only those in the know can see it.
    The Carver carbon does have a cool weave finish and must be made of Lexus carbon because it is 40-70 g lighter. Negative impact of 45mm offset remains to be experienced. Still might get the on-one carbon fork one day.

    That's the sort of thing to include as a note or "recommended option" in the description of the fork on the website. I think I've got a Hope Head Doctor in the tickle trunk...

    Thanks Brant for posting the link to the correct bung. Will the bottom piece of the headset which sits on the old steel forks just lift off and be used on the new carbon forks, or do I need to buy a new piece? Sorry to be a bit thick about these things, the forks are a present for my son and I just want to give him all the correct bits so he can swap it over straight away.

    on one fatty carbon fork

    The carbon fork is the same length and offset as the steel fork. Because both forks have straight steerers, the crown race should swap straight over.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    First thing I noticed was how light this fork is. It's almost scary.
    I had a standard 1 1/8 FSA compression plug that was too large for the inner circumference of the steerer tube so I picked up a Specialized plug at a local shop for $12. It was snug, but worked fine

    I took some pics from my poorly lit shop. The spacing shots aren't the greatest, but you'll get an idea anyway.

    Anyone running this on a Pugsley? Seems like with the rake and length it would move the handle bars up about an inch and might slow the steering quite a bit.

    The increase in length and the increase in rake (offset) will have opposite effects on the handling so it might end up being about the same as the stock Pugsley fork.

    The increase in length will slacken the head angle a bit (slowing steering) but the increase in rake (offset) will work to reduce trail (quicken steering).
