    I am might spray on a matte clearcoat. There is already a thin layer of clearcoat on it. I also bought a can of frame saver so I will definitely treat all the internal tubing with it. But yes... I am worry about rust also.

    The raw frame looks great. I almost wish I would have waited, but in truth, I'm glad that I have had mine for a few weeks and over 100 miles of trail already.

    Make sure you post some photos once you build it up!

    Sasquatch: How tall are you? I'm looking to buy one of these and at 5'9 I'm caught between a 16" and 18". I held up a 16" 456 EVOII to my Yeti SB66 medium and it looked to have a similar ETT, chainstay etc... But I've never owned a 16" bike. I do like my bikes a bit on the small side for playfulness and such bit I don't want to feel cramped!
    Help!
    Also, anyone else with one of these built up, ride report please!!

    I am only 5'7" with short legs for my height. The frame fits me well. The top tube on the 16" frame seemed too short when I first tried it, but I got used to it and it doesn't bother me now.

    If you are debating between the 2 sizes, I would say to go for the 18" frame.

    Hmm.. Sounds good. Now i've complicated the decision by adding the Kona Explosif to the mix. At 500 bucks for a frame it's pretty tempting. The chainstays look better IMHO and they have a killer raw steel version with orange stickers too. Argh!!!

    Well, I just found out that Kona is sold out of all sizes for the Explosif *frame only* except for 15" FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR! So that means unless I want to buy a complete bike, I have to wait until the 2015 frames are released. So maybe I'll get the On-one after all...
    I have to say I had grown to fancy the sliding 142mm dropouts of the Explosif.

    Man, if I wanted to blow $2K on a frame I'd probably just go Moots or an IF steel frame or something. Part of the attraction of the Kona and the 45650b is the low entry price for a bike I can ride in any and all conditions and not worry about maintenance and all that. Plus I need a less bling-y bike I can leave locked up if I go down to the corner for a pizza or something.

    What if you build up the 45650b, ride it until the Explosif comes back in stock, and if you still find yourself hankering for Kona's dropouts transfer the parts over? Should be able to sell the 45650b and make most of your money back. Shouldn't be too costly either, especially if you have a convertible rear hub.

    I mean, other than the fact that it's annoying and possibly more money and hassle than necessary for a beater lol

    Not exactly looking for a beater, just a bike that's not worth more than my car.

    Good luck with the decision, and if you pick the On One post pics

    Here is my 99% complete 45650b. Still waiting on the ashima brake rotors.

    Mixture of XT and SLX with a raceface double crankset. Went with a 130mm Sektor RL gold fork.

    Got a set of Mavic CrossRoc WTS wheelset.

    Hope you guys like it.45650b-imgp0193.jpg45650b-imgp0195.jpg45650b-imgp0189.jpg

    Looks great. My frame has been ordered, went with the black frame, although I really like the raw one too. I already had so many blue bits and pieces that it felt like a better fit. Can't wait to see more of these built up.

    Max, what frame size is that?

    Mine's an 18. Looks like it'll fit pretty nice, getting very excited to put it all together. Today the orange narrow wide should come, along with the headset and orange ODI lock ons. Then I'll pretty much have everything I need to get rolling. Still not even sure if I'll use the narrow wide, as both of my other bikes are 1x10 and it might be nice to keep one with a 2x. We'll see I guess.

    Bump: Super Raw owners, wondering if your frames come from On-One with a clear coat over, or if they are actually bare steel.
    Cheers.
