    Hi!
    First of all i want to apologize for my pure english!
    In this time of period i ride a 29er trek marlin with a lot of upgrades, like rock shox reba dua air and deore brakes and slx groupset.
    I make thoughts of sell it and start a new project with an evo frame.
    I ride a lot, about 100 kilometres per week and the most of them in high mountains but i want to exercise more in trails, so i think that an am bike would be perfect for me!
    What do you think?
    Would it be difficult to climb with this geometry and a 150mm fork?
    Thank you!

    I ride both a SS inbred 29er (rigid) and a geared 456 with 130 up front. They're definitely different beast as you can imagine. Your Trek is geared more toward efficiency and XC riding as where the 456 is more or less a hardtail freeride bike that can still climb. There will be trade off in terms of efficiency, but I promise you the 456 will be a bit more fun to throw around on the mountain trails.
    Of course, I'm 6'2", so I pretty much view my 456 as my BMX

    I guess it is not possible to use the syntace x12 axle on the new evo right?

    I noticed on the website that recommended fork length is 150mm max.
    Do you think 160 mm would kill the handling( it's what I have lying around)?
    If so, does anyone know if On-One has something like the bagger coming?
    thanks

    We don't have a Bagger type frame in development. The frame main tubes have been CEN tested to 160mm in previous model, so I imagine it's all fine. Geoemtry will be fine with longer fork.

    I may be wrong, but I don't see too many diferences with the "first generation" Summer Season frames, right?
    Just about +0'5ºhead degree angle, top tube a bit longer, and chainstays also a bit longer in size 18"... am I missing something else? Will those small changes make a huge difference?

    Seat angle steeper, BB lower. Small tweaks. Quite a difference as a whole.

    I missed those, thanks for your answer Brant.

    Yesterday night I sold my old 456 Summer season, and ordered an 18" EVO frame (and a 16" for a friend), so I hope I'll be noticing those differences myself pretty soon. Really eager to enjoy it!

    What a lucky friend!
    I give positive rep all around but then I get negative rep from all the clowns.

    Hi again!
    I want to order an on one 456 evo frame but i donta know which size to pick,
    i allready sent an email at on one but i want your opinion too.
    Im 1,80 cm with 80 cm inseam, the frame that i use know is a trek marlin and because of my short inseam i have a standover broblem.
    Marlin has an 62,2 effective top tube if i choose on one 16 size with 592 effective top tube wil this be a big problem?
    Which size do you think would be better for an all mountain use?
    Thank you!

    been meaning to ask,is the evo taking the place of both current steel 456 offerings or is just the SS being dropped and there will still be the standard 456 along with the evo? Also on that note, i have a standard 456 and love it but if the evo was an option when i got it a year and a half ago i would have opted for the evo.

    Hard to call, but 18in would be ok.
    Fisher sounds long!

    Thank you for your answer Brant.

    Dont you think i will have the same standover problem again?

    I read that the standover of the 18 size with a 150mm fork will be 80cm, the same as my inseam

    150mm hardtails are tall. You aren't.
    Standover is over rated. You will NEVER fall off and end up stood over the toptube.

    Exactly. Standover is the last thing I'm looking at for proper fit.

    When I said "18in is OK" - this is based on the fact you are erring towards long top tube.

    Personally a 24.5in top tube on a bike for a guy who is 5'10" seems a little long, even if you run a 40mm stem!

    i'm right in between 5'10" and 5'11" and ride an 18 inch 456 with a 60mm stem and it feels perfect. but i also have a 32" inseam and long arms.
