    45650b

    Just wondering if there have been any updates or if anyone knows when the frames discussed in this blog post might be available for sale: Brant Blog

    Thanks!

    I asked the other day and was told that the frames will be available in early December. What I am really wondering is what rear dropouts will be offered.

    I think the geo and build specs will be similar to the current evo 2 except we'll be looking at a 44mm headtube.

    Hopefully someone can come in here and let us know something...I want to buy a 650b wheelset but need to know what rear axle to get.

    I'm looking into this one in or the Genesis High Latitude LT, both in Ti. Indeed dropouts would be nice to know.

    Thanks for the timing info!

    That's my guess on the geometry as well but it still leaves room to wonder what will change to accommodate the larger wheels. Chainstays on the 26" Evo2 are as long as many of the latest 29er AM hardtails so I'm hoping Brant hasn't extended them from the Evo2

    Not sure where I read it but I think the chainstays are 430mm. So that would mean almost zero chainstay growth for the larger models.

    Hopefully Brant can come in here and clear this up. Removable/replaceable droupouts would be perfect...

    googled it: On-One Expands Their 456 Line with The 45650b

    430mm is quite okay. 419mm on my Genesis makes it playful but not the best climber with my 6'2.

    In addition...pretty please On-One offer this one in either RAW with blue accents like the current EVO2 or Candy Blue!

    I got an email today from the Planet X USA rep who said the 45650B frames would not be available until mid February and that date was still subject to change.......

    I just got a reply from another US rep who says the frames are arriving in the UK in the next few days. I wonder which one is correct??

    Both could be correct if the full first run of frames is going to their main UK warehouse and the US warehouse isn't getting any until a planned second run. That's my guess at least

    Answer from On-One uk:

    "Frames are starting to arrive - but in limited sizes and colour options until the full batch lands in early January. We'll be relelasing a build and a preorder very shortly (before Christmas)."

    I'm not sure what the status is on the US frames but it seems that UK frames are coming soon!

    Looks great, now if someone could point me in the general direction of an affordable 44mm headset that would be great.

    I put in an order for a 16" 45650B yesterday. I ordered it through Brandon @ Planet X USA. He thinks that the frame will arrive within 2 weeks. If I understood correctly, they only had a handful of frames on the way to the US, with more arriving at the end of January. I have a Fox 34 27.5 CTD 120-150 TALAS fork ready, and am shopping for a new wheelset now. I'm still debating whether to try and do a cheap 1x10 build or just stick with 2x10. I hope to pick up the rest of the parts via various Xmas sales and build this bike up soon.

    Sounds good! Similar to what I am planning. Already got all the bits for a RAW 45650b. Unfortunately those frames wont be available until the end of January.

    It arrived! Looks nice. I have a fork, but need to get wheels and a drivetrain before I can build it up and take it for a ride. It may be a few weeks, but I'll post photos once it's done.

    Any ride impressions yet? I just bought a ragley big wig but I'm thinking about returning it for one of these. I have all the 650b parts already but no 29er stuff so I'm thinking this would be a faster build. My main worry is I'm going to miss the momentum of those wagon wheels....

    I just ordered the final parts needed and have should be able to build up the bike next week. I'll post photos once it is built, and ride impressions will follow ASAP.

    The 26" evo (16" frame size) is 2.5 kgs. How much weight can a 44mm headtube add?

    I'm glad to see On One finally getting on board with 650b. It wasn't too long ago that Brant was saying 650b was pointless and that he would never design a 650b On One.

    I wonder if 456 EVO carbon production is suspended to get the 650B treatment as well? Always thought the EVO carbon timing was a bit unfortunate with 650B around the corner. Switching directly to a 650B geo would be a good idea in my view. I know the current 456C has plenty of room for 650B, but with a long travel fork and 26'' the BB is pretty high already. With a new model you could get the lower BB from the EVO plus additional BB drop for 650B.

    Add dropouts that allow 12x142 and/or 26" wheels and a bit more give from the rear perhaps loosing a bit of weight there in the process (the 456C is strong as intended, but pretty stiff) and they've got a winner I reckon.

    I got my 45650B built up and took it out for a test ride but immediately found that the brand new Fox fork was not holding air. I rode a total of 1.5 miles, and had to pump up my fork 4 times during this time. The Schrader valve was leaking bad, and so the ride ended. My buddy fixed the valve for me tonight (it only took 5 minutes) and so I hope to get a good test ride this week.

    Here are a few garage photos to hold you over until I can get a few photos of the bike out on the trail.

    Wow great looking bike...now I'm just waiting to see what the Raw frame looks like before ordering. At 5.6 she's a bit of a porker but that's fine, so am I.

    Got my frame in a couple weeks ago. Just waiting on my new wheelset and a couple other small parts. Can't wait to get it built up and out on the trails.

    OK. I made it out for a few rides and have a good idea what this bike is capable of. I am pretty stoked.

    I took it out for a mellow 14 mile test ride after work a few days ago. I immediately found that the front end felt too tall with the fork at 150mm. The front end would lift up on steep climbs and I had trouble pushing the bike into turns. Once I dialed back the fork to 120mm it fixed things. The bike took a bit of time to get used to, but by the end of the ride I was pretty sure I liked it.

    I took the bike out again today on a longer ride. I rode 12 miles of gravel roads and 20 miles of singletrack with approx 4000 feet of climbing. The bike climbs well, I only struggled on the steepest singletrack sections and that was probably due to too much tire pressure. I did this same ride a few weeks ago on my Turner Burner and took nearly the same amount of time on both rides. The singletrack descents were awesome. The bike was very stable and wanted more speed at all times. It railed switchbacks and was easy to control in rough rocks and roots. I felt like I was able to descend nearly as fast as on the Burner on all but the roughest sections of trail.

    To sum it up, I like this bike alot!

    Here are a few pictures from the first ride. I was having too much fun to stop for photos today.

    Nice shots and bike!

    I occassionally ride a 456c with a 150mm. The next fork maintance I will reduce the travel to 140mm to quicken the handling a bit. That said with that long a fork and thus slackend seattube angle it's a good idea to move the saddle quite a bit forward to aid pedalling and climbing. Also putting some rings above the handlebar helped me to keep more weight on the front wheel in the turns. Everything very personal of course.

    Hi fr0sty,
    I asked On-One via email about pics of the new version and the weights for the raw/painted frames, but no answer yet. I think you have to call them for detailed infos, they might be busy setting up the release for the 456 Carbon Evo and the 45650B raw.
    I think it will look the same as the 456 Evo 2 raw.
    The glossy black would also match my new EXM130 almost perfectly, but i am still waiting for pictures (and perhaps a release date discount) of the raw version.

    About the weight: a guy in german IBC bike market stated 2.780 kg = 6.1 lbs for the 16" painted frame, i wonder if he or Sasquatch is right.
    Here is the link: On One 45650 16" schwarz, SRAM X.0, Hope LRS, Carbonlenker usw. - Bikemarkt - MTB-News.de

    I should have stated that my buddy at the bike shop weighed the frame before building it up. I didn't weigh it myself or see the weight. I would be surprised if he was off by a full 1/2 pound, but you never know.

    Germans are known for their precision and that guy looks like he bothered to list the weight of each part, so I wouldn't doubt the accuracy of the weight you found on the German website.

    Assume the frame weighs 6.1 lbs, and if it comes in any lighter, you will be stoked!

    Should be about minus 36-40 mm with SAG.

    I measured mine, and it was 12.7" to the center of the bb with the fork set to 120mm and with no sag. I have a Hans Dampf 2.35 on the rear wheel, and a Nobby Nic 2.25 on the front.

    Riding it, I can tell that it is lower than my Burner, but it wasn't a real issue on the trail. I rode it today thru a very rough 1.5 mile section of lava rock, and had a few pedal strikes that could have been avoided, but was able to clear plenty of tall rocks and chunky roots without hitting my frame.

    Hi, nice frame you have there!
    Did you weigh it by any chance?
    Is the finish really "super raw" without any coating? I think it would rust really fast then.

    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

    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.

    Guys
    I asked this on the 27.5 forum t I'm needing a bit of advice on sizing. The 16 has the ett I normally shoot for (23-23.5) but can't get my head around ordering a 16, all my other bikes run 17-18. I'm 69" with a 31" cycling inseem, Does you thinkthe 16 is going to be too small?

    I am nearly certain that the 16" will be too small for you. I am 67" tall with a 28 inch inseam and the 16" fits me well.

    Ride update!
    This thing rips! Tons of fun to ride, sturdy as hell, barely notice the difference between 26" wheels but it's there. Just subtle.

    Ok that was a crap update. Here's a bit more detail.
    So my build came out AWESOME, I'm just waiting on my Hope Tech 3 X2 brakes, that should arrive at my doorstep today. To test ride, I chucked on a set of Avids I had kicking around. I think the Hopes will match the raw burliness of the bike just perfectly. More upgrades will come, more on that later.

    So we've been under snow for ages here, and it was a bit too sloppy to hit up any of the local trails, so I rode down to the Valmont bike park. Took it on some of the dirt jumps and different training lines, and it handles like a dream. You almost wouldn't notice the bigger wheels if you didn't know they were big. So the benefits are certainly there, but you don't necessarily notice them. I never liked 29" wheels, but this bike just feels right. I also pounded the snot out of it just mobbing around some business parking lots that have fun stairs, loading docks, crazy rocky chutes in their landscaping etc. Handled it all with ease.

    So I've put up my Yeti SB-66 carbon up for sale to fund a few more upgrades on this bike. I still have another carbon trailbike, so I'll keep that (Element 26" MSL) and the 45650b. Once the 66c is sold, I'll buy a PIKE 150 to replace the Fox 34 (not a big fan of FOX), get a KS Lev, a One Up 40 tooth cog out back, and maybe a Haven carbon handlebar. Depending on the interface of the Hope Tech 3 lever, I might switch to an XTR shifter and an XT shadow plus rear mech too.

    As far as the bike, it really is quite nice, and just looks awesome. I'm 69" (5'9.5") and the 18" fits really nice. In fact, with a 50mm stem it's even just the tiniest bit cramped. Might go for a 60mm. With the frame, I could only pick one quibble, and that is that the barrel hose guides on the right side of the top tube stick out a bit. The one in the middle of the top tube is positioned in a way that it caught my knee while I was muscling the bike over a big rock. Not a big deal but worth mentioning, because I see more of that in my future.

    Thanks for the update. Between you and sasquatch it looks like the 18" is the way to go (probably w/ a 60mm).

    max_lombard, this was so helpful. im looking at selling my yeti as well and building one of these puppies. And to hear someone else has plans to put the Pike on there makes me feel dandy too.

    did you go with the raw or black?

    Build has started. Everything is bolted on, but I am waiting for some tyres. I'll post some pics up once I've shortened the brake hoses. Bike looks like it will be a lot of fun!

    No pics or ride reports since I can't even ride the local trails which are still soaked from the snow melt. And it is going to rain big time tomorrow..... Sigh

    Some pics of my build...just need some tires now, any suggestions?







    The perspective makes the wheels look tiny, but the frame is 20". Fits my 6'3 frame very nicely!
