    It was an Identiti Rebate XL. It has a 20mm axle.

    I had since gone back to a X-Fusion Vengeance @ 150.

    I like the black frame, almost wish I went for the black one instead of the raw, I just liked the idea of having no paint to chip on the raw frame.

    Hi!
    My first post here

    I don't know what frame size i should choose..

    I'm 5'7,7"? (172cm) and inner legs with 32,3"? (82cm)
    On the legs i should choose a 18" and for my length 16"? If I look at the on-one site..

    Sooo which one should I buy?

    I'm not so good in English but I think you undertand =)

    I'm 6ft tall and I went for the 18", I think I could have got the 16" and been ok. The18" I find is plenty big enough for my legs. I just wasn't sure about the reach of the 16" so went for the 18".

    If I was you I would definitely get a 16" frame.

    How long legs do you have?
    I'm just worried that my knee isn't in line with the pedal if I take the 16"

    My inside leg is approximately 32".

    I think either frame would be ok, I just think the 18" is a little big and the 16" frame would be a tiny bit lighter and a little more of a playful bike and considering you are 4" shorter than me...

    Although I also forgot to mention if I purchased the 16" frame I was concerned about having too long of a seat post sticking out, not keen on long seat posts sticking out the frame, but since getting my 18" frame I don't think it would have had to much seat post exposed as I prefer to run my seat on the lower side. Having bought a set back Thomson post I can't lower it any futher due to the bend but I rarely use it higher and sometimes wish I could lower it, I was considering a straight seat post but I like the set back. Thomson are bringing out a new straight-set back post soon though.

    I know its a difficult desicion for you as I believe either would be ok, but again I would think the 16" would best.

    Also consider the look of each frame, as the 16" and 18" look different, the 16" obviously looks to be smaller with lower stand over. You might prefer the look of one over the other.

    18, I'm 5'10 with a 32" inseam and ride a 18 with 40mm stem and love it and could comfortably ride a 16 with a 60-70mm stem.

    Maybe in the future. The Vee's are brand new and have been pretty good thus far.

    King Diamond is awesome.

    Unfortunately the 18" is too small for me. I've put about 200 miles on the bike altering the cockpit and it always feels like the front wheel is smack under me. I made the decision to strip it down last night, sell the frame cheap, and buy a 20"

    Or if anyone has a 20" raw frame and wants an 18" I would totally trade!

    Anything between 4"-6" is recommended. I use a 140mm/5.5"

    My girlfriend has a 2013 456C at 150mm. She ride's it in any kind of weather so quite a few larger maintenance issues are coming up in the foreseeable future. She really loves the bike's versatile and confidence inspiring nature. For a new bike she would want 650B, a lower BB and a more forgiving back end. Too bad there's only a steel 45650B otherwise you probably would've sold her a new bike. Best bet for now is a Whyte 905.

    I hear a lot of people put on 650 wheels in the 456c but that sounds like it'll jack the bb sky high with a longer fork also.

    Exactly. She can buy a good set of 650B wheels from a friend, but at 150mm it's just not gonna work that well.

    How tall are you? I am 5'11", and was thinking 20" frame myself. I ride a large Yeti with a 24.4 tt and 55mm stem. The 18" frames have a 23.7tt. I'd rather go long tt and stubby stem...seems to be the opposite of what most people here are doing.

    After making the mistake of selling Darth Goat, I'm feeling the sting of my stupidity. How much you want for your 18" raw?

    I just know the guy with the black one for $250. That's what I paid for a frame with 2 months use. I don't know him personally, but he would respond quickly and seemed like a good guy. Yeah, the UK site had them for £149 and I think I saw it for £124. The USA site sells them for $334, that's where the both of them bought the frame. Also the USA site was the only one to have them in stock. Well....I take that back, the UK site had 15ea of the 18" frame and none of the rest.

    I love all of the builds. The next shipment of more frames is due in to the UK any day now. One of the 18" raw frames should be headed my soon after. I have a pile of parts in the workshop waiting for a frame. X-fusion Vengeance HLR Coil. WTB Vigilantes. Assorted Race Face Turbine finishing parts. King hubs and headset. WTB I25 rims. Sram XO drivetrain with Wolf Tooth GC. All I need is the frame...

    Keep the builds coming. I hope everyone is enjoying their 45650b's as much I have enjoyed each and every one of my On-One bikes over the years...

    Are you in the Uk or US? if you're in the US the price just dropped to $305 shipped after talking to Brandon about On-One's sale price, and he seemed to have 18" raw in stock. I would drop him a line!

    Thanks for the heads up. I pre-ordered from the UK site when shipping was a bit cheaper - so unless they will ship me a frame from the US distributor, I'm waiting for the frame from the UK.

    well, that upgrade bug got me.....i just purchased a brand new fox 32 factory 100mm remote and now.....it's out. my current fork is now going to be replaced with a Fox 34 Evo 160mm (no remote) but it's going to be modded to the extreme. this new fork does have Fox Gold oil in it though.....
    this may sound dumb, but i hope i like the increased travel. right now i think 115mm is really nice. well see how the new geo and travel works out. i'll just shim it down until i think it's "perfect".

    How is everyone finding rear tyre clearance. I'm finding there's not much mud clearance on mine for the size of tyre I'd like to run. A 2.3 Vigilante rubbed pretty much constantly and the 2.2 Trail Boss rubs under hard cornering as the tyre deforms. My old 456 Summer Season had acres of mud clearance. Those tyres do size up properly according to my micrometer and I've got SS Tactic rims which have a 23mm internal/ 28mm external width so they're not huge.

    it almost feels like a 26" rear end that they've just shoehorned a 27.5" wheel into

    Do you have a picture of the rear clearance with the different tires mentioned? Might be useful for the thread.

    the fork is done! my biggest concern....the 160mm. i don't see much of anyone here going that route, so i assume it's been tried and abandoned. i'll see how the trails go, i can always reduce the travel.

    Yes, could be a touch much. I have 150s on and 'sometimes' when climbing it does wander a bit, great going down the hill of course! Just stick your chain over the bars when climbing and you'll be fine

    Pcs aren't great but this is it with the 2.2 Trail Boss. There's <10mm clearance between the seatbrace and the chain stays. There's zero chance of ever getting a true 2.4 tyre in there which is the max according to On One




    Compare that to my wife's carbon Giant Hardtail which has acres of space with a 2.2 Ardent in the back

    That 2.2 Trail boss looks big. I had way more room than that with my 2.25 Honey Badger.

    Measured with my micrometer it's a proper 2.2 width tyre

    I tested a tubeless Conti XKing 2.4 on a 35mm Blunt rim and it clears just fine.

    Merry Xmas from Finland! With Knard and Dirt Wizard, 45650B runs like a reindeer in snow.

    26x3.0 Knard fits and rolls in 26" Revelation, but there was not enough mud-/snow clearance. I guess Knard fits same way to frame.

    Mine will likely be for sale soon (18 Raw). I love it but I'm likely to pull the trigger on a Tranny 29. Here she is from our ride today. PM me if interested.

    finally got to ride! first time trying it out with 160mm! went awesome! the trail i was on is ALL ROOTS! i kid you not! (ha ha....see what i did there!)
    i think the 160mm worked awesome. i had no issues. i plan on having around 5 rides and then try it at 150mm and see if i can feel a difference....
    very happy with the build!

    Awesome! Went up for a few days, contemplated bringing my FS bike, settled on the 45650b just to see how it held up. Very happy to have chosen the HT for sure. But as you know, Crested Butte is an awesome place to ride no matter what bike you're on

    I know man, we go every summer! If you haven't done it, you need to slide out to Moab and ride the whole enchilada. That's a life changing experience.

    Anyway, just bought the girlfriend a 45650b frame, should be here in a few weeks. Looking forward to building it up. What travel fork you running on yours? Thinking of 120mm for her, don't want to start her out too big!

    We'll let some others chime in, but I think 140mm-150mm yields the best geo. I remember someone on here saying a 120mm fork made for a pretty steep head angle. Mine was 150, rode like a dream.

    Well, this is for my girlfriend. She takes a lot of spin classes, not really a rider. Scared the super slack geo will be overwhelming to her!? Maybe that's the best way to learn huh! lol

    How can slack geometry be overwhelming? If any thing it's safer.
    I got some bad ideas in my head.

    Agree.

    My GF rides her 456C with 150mm. I've proposed reducing it to 140mm a couple of times, but she refuses. She loves the confident front end. The 45650b should be even better at those lengths with the lower BB.

    Hey guys, brand new on here as a member, and I must say this thread has been most helpful.
    I am building a 45650b after reading about On One online and was in between sizes as it seems a lot of you were.
    I am 5ft 6in tall, 145lbs, with about a 29in inseam (give or take .5in) and I am pulling the trigger today on the 16" frame
    Will be running 720mm wide 5mm rise bars with 50mm azonic stem, 2015 fox float 32 150mm fork, new velocity blunt ss rims built on x9 hubs, raceface 32t narrow wide crankset, 1x10 sram x9 type 2 derailleur, easton haven carbon post, and some hayes stroker gram 160mm disc brakes

    Hope she works out well, this is my first bike since my 2003 Gary Fisher Tassajara.
    Sweet bike and I rode the wheels off, but I wanted something in between that and my 2008 7point DH rig
    Stoked to get parts rolling in! Thanks again to everyone for sharing frame sizing info!

    bcapp that sounds pretty sweet. At your weight a 32mm fork should be beefy enough. Post some pics when it's ready.

    Thanks mate! I will get pics up for sure! Frame had to be sent from UK so it should be in just before the end of the month.

    Also, i scooped up some Vee rubber fluid 2.4s for super cheap. Tread pattern seems ok for running on the front and rear. Anybody have real world experience with these? 120tpi and they feel pretty nice. Nice big lugs for sure

    i finally had enough rides at the 160mm and now have 3 rides at 150mm. i like the 150mm more. seems to handle better and turn and hold more. the first ride the shock pressure was way too low, made the ride very awkard. i plan on changing out the tires and ditching the mavic tires. i think the rear is too narrow for me. on the two trails i ride the most offten i feel like i'm sinking into the dirt or being dragged down. yes, i'm a heavy guy (240lb) but i also believe going slightly wider will help out, from 2.20" to 2.35". the tire most suggested to me are Schwalbe Hans Dampf 27.5 x 2.35 Pace Star
    i'm willing to take any and all suggestions on tires! i didn't believe my Mech at first, i had to google the info, but he told me to buy non tubeless because the sidewall is thiner so the tire will be lighter. apparently it's very common and done.

    I found a great deal on some Intense branded Vee Rubber Fluid 2.4s. Put 4 rides on them as well as commuted all week on them. Excellent edge hold, perfect tracking, float through the deepest sandy spots too. More of a DH tire, but I love them on my 45750b

    I've had several rides on mine now, and honestly, I don't see how you much better than Neo-motos. 2.3", reasonably light, decent price on sale these days. I'm around 240, too, and ride a Fox 34 150mm fork.

    THANKS!!!!!!
    so i had to do a little bit of finagling...
    Niagara has them right now for $34.79 but the shipping is a little high....so i had Jenson USA price match them and they shipped them free!!!!!!
    not too bad, a pair of new tires for less than $70! oh, i also jumped on a PB deal and bought a pair of Kenda Nevegal tires for $35 with shipping! almost brand new tires too! 5 rides (claimed).
    i should be good on tires now! i'll throw those Mavic's in a closet!

    thanks again!

    man, i have to thank you! i've had the neo-moto's on for quite a few rides now, and i love them! nothing but grip and stability! i can't believe how much faster those tires are. i really didn't think i would have that much more overall speed than the mavic tires. they are much lighter and simply have more grip. i have them set up tubeless with Stans (previous tire sealant really didn't work as well with these).
    the back tire now doesn't loose traction, even though i ride so much forward. it's nice to have the front end dropped just a touch, going from a 2.4" to 2.3".
    i like these tires so much, i now need to get rid of the Kenda's i picked up for super cheap. i thought i was going to swap them out at some point....but not now!
    thanks again for pointing me in that direction!

    I've read almost this entire tread and found some good tips, and today I finally purchased my own. Short clips from my ride in the forests just north of Helsinki;

    i might have just de-valued my frame.....or......maybe not....
    the cable guides on this drove me nuts! i don't know why, i simply didn't like them. soooooo..... i had a qualified person remove them. now all i have are 3 on the top tube (which are shaved too) and then the rear triangle. so now, this frame is only a 1X. the brake and shifter cable are tied together with tie string (aviation wax tie string) and ran together. i did notice that i now have no cable rubs up front, so it did take that little issue away. i did plan on taking this to a local shop and for a whopping $80, they will sand blast and powder coat it. i haven't decided on a color yet. i would like to keep the "On-One" logo, but to do that, i have to order the 1 frame sticker package. it's their titanium down tube sticker for their pickenflick. the issue with that, i planned on flat black. well, those won't work well together! i also have those bright Mavic Crossmax enduro yellow wheels. so i may have them take it down to 45650b-one-v2.0-g.jpgbare metal and clear coat.
    now i may ditch the whole bike and go with FS....i really don't know....i could keep the frame and still send it to the powder coater....who knows...45650b-one-cable-guide-.jpg45650b-one-cable-guide-b.jpg

    most current build.
    a few changes.
    Neo-Moto 27.5" 2.3" F/R
    Thomson Elite Set Back 367mm post
    Real World Cycling Angular BB bearings
    replaced tire sealant with Stans (2oz per tire)
    switched out Finned brake pads for standard. no, not for weight, i've had brake issues with this since day 1. it finally took having the brakes professionally done, rotors soaked in Simple Green then scrubbed, and brand new out of the package shimano pads.
    bike weighs sub 28lbs with those 1lb saints! the Neo-Moto's dropped a couple hundred grams from the stock Mavics and the Stans was a lot lighter than the other sealant i used.

    Hope for an carbon or alu version MY 2016. Long overdue. Yes the 456C fits 650B, but it raises the already high BB of the 456C with longer forks even more.

    Steel is nice and all, but you don't have to be a weight weenie to appreciate a two pound weight saving.

    As I've gotten older, I care less and less about weight and more about having parts that work well and last, and for frames at least, that have a good ride quality. I'd rather lug around a steel frame for days than spend time in the saddle getting beaten up on an ALU or carbon frame. Just my $0.02.
    When I strike it rich I'll go full custom TI, but I'm not holding my breath!

    Hi! I'm thinking of buying a 45650b frame and putting a dirt wizard on. With 38 or 40mm rims. The tire will be about 72mm wide. I saw a picture of one frame with these tires but with narrower rims. Can anyone confirm a fit of the dirt wizards or please measure the frame at the chainstays AND seatstays. Thanks!

    About 80mm width at top of stays and about 72mm bottom approx about 80mm a bit futher back. Obviously depends where you measure it. Sorry as I don't have a wheel and tyre fitted to see exactly where the tyre normally ends. I think the bottom stay may be tight if not too narrow.

    Thanks! Could you please measure at 34cm from centre of the axle. That's where the tires at the max width
