    shiggy on the rocks!

    Today I brought the On-One fat bike to the area that inspired it.

    Not a great day for pics, but a wonderful day to ride.

    Mostly very happy with the bike. It is doing what I intended.

    I have a few hours of video to go through and Ward has more. Hoping his vid of the rock crawling turns out to compliment the on-bike vid I shot.

    That's for sure. Especially after I dropped the pressure from 9psi to ~8.

    I was climbing things--rock, sandy ruts--I rarely was able to in the past.

    Looks great, Shiggy. But I gotta say, that riding kit is the most subdued I think I've ever seen you in. Almost drab, I dare say.

    Can't wait to see the vid. That should be interesting stuff. Hope it turns out. Looked like a dark, overcast day there.

    It was overcast, flat light, but the pics look darker on the forum than they did on my laptop. May need to reset the levels.

    Great Day! Thanks Shiggy and Stan! And the On One FB's stateside testing seems to be going quite well. Has a look all it's own and certainly worthy of desert trails.

    "On the rocks" was a good tittle for this one...

    Have you settled on a name yet?
    I am partial to Mayhem, since that was what it was designed for

    "Freak Show" would be an appropriate name for a fat bike.

    I know the Titus/On One relationship has existed for about a year and a half now but I'm glad it's easier for us to get our On One gear.

    Hopefully the partnership has been equally beneficial. Cool to see some testing happening on our soil and easier for overs across the pond to get some fatbikes!

    The cockpit layout looks interesting, especially with lower bar holding what appears to be a GPS..and more. Any pics or details of that?

    Gotta say between your bike and Velobike's bike(s), the Midge bars look appealing. I notice when I start to bonk my hands will get all antsy even on my swept bars, like I want to rotate my wrists more.

    I like the general look of the frame. Would prefer a longer headtube to get the stem height up higher without using a heap of spacers.

    It's good to see another fatbike on drops - I reckon it makes even more sense on a fatbike. (I usually send any doubters to Shiggy's site - he explains it better than me).

    AJT, I'm in the Highlands (as is Motorman). I'm quite happy to give you a shot of one of my bikes.

    If anything, the HT is a bit long for me. I am OK with the bar height though it is a bit higher than I normally use. I have just one 3mm spacer under the stem. The head tube length/height is similar to a "regular" hardtail.
    Stems with rise are the better choice rather than lots of spacers.
    Longer HTs start raising the standover, too.

    This bike felt totally natural to me from the first pedal stroke. Only a few tweaks I would like to be made.
