    New question here. Dirty Disco


    On-One Dirty Disco Carbon Cyclocross Frameset | Mountain Bike Review
    Is any new info come out about this awesome frame? I see it is available for pre-order but does anyone have one at this point? I must say the spy shot frame looks rather nice and it is rolling on carbon On-One wheels?

    My dream:
    Carbon On-One cross bike
    Ti On-One Inbred 29er bike
    On-One Adventure bike

    I love you On-One.

    EDIT: How is tire clearance looking? Could it fit something like a firecross?

    Pink, this is a 'cross race frameset. Do not know the actual max tire clearance but it should be around 38mm.

    We are expecting the shipment within 2 weeks.

    Hey Shiggy,
    no 58cm in stock?
    I'm itching to replace my Motobecane Outlaw CX with this puppy, but I'm pretty sure the 56 would be too small for me.
    Here's the geo of my current rig, I have a 58.

    The first delivery of 58s is sold out.

    Compared to your current frame, ours have a 1 degree steeper STA, so if you set your saddle position the same relative to the BB the ETT of our 56 will be similar to your 58. The DD 58 has a longer TT even without factoring in the STA.

    Do not know what the head tube length is on your frame.

    Mmm, now you got me thinking.
    Your 58 is almost a 60 and my current frame falls right in between 56 and 58 DD.

    I plan to ride this also on road, so I should probably err on the larger side, but this 58 almost 60 seems XL....

    Does the frame come with a headset?
    Seem like the UK store has two 58 in stock, but it would cost me about $60 more... I'm assuming you are not expecting another batch of 58 anytime soon

    Does anyone know what the standover is for the 54 cm frame? I need the 74 deg seat angle and the longish top tube (relative to the 52) but I'm kinda short-legged.

    Thanks,

    ZT... I might have to take a look at this the next time you and I are up in Reno!! Have been lusting after this frame and want to make it into a hybrid commuter/CX/road bike for training and what not (FOR SCIENCE!!)... Dont know how much the wife would love the price tag on it though.. Put together a build-up thread if you dont mind!

    Not sure when I'll be back in Tahoe, but with the lack of snow it is likely I'll bring the bike.

    Right now I'm waiting for the gruppo (shifters/derallieurs/cassette) so I built it SS, using the On-One tensioner. It's great as is for commuting.
    Build so far:
    Frame: One-One Dirty Disco with Carbon forks
    Crank: SRAM Apex Compact (46/34 for CX, 50/34 for road)
    Cog: On-One Groove Armada 16T (so I'm running 46x16 with the Sugino chainring)
    Tensioner: On-One Doofer
    Brakes: Avid BB7 Road
    Bar: Easton EA70
    Wheels: Stan's Notubes Crest with ZTR 3.30 Hubs
    Tires: Stan's Raven 35c Tubeless
    Cabling: Jagwire
    Saddle: On-One Inbred Saddle
    Seat Post: On-One Twelfty
    Headset: FSA Orbit

    Here's the pic as it is now: tipping the scale at 18lb (no pedals)

    Here's mine with road tires and a commute bag. 17.75 pounds without the bags, cages, or pump. Rims are Crests. I use a different wheelset for knobbies. The brakes are road BB7's despite the black color.

    Hey, i was just looking at those rear stays. Can they come apart so that the dirty disco can take a belt drive system?

    Is the disco 'stiff ' ? Back end looks a little thin below the seat. Do you get much flex out of the saddle? What weight are you if you don't mind me asking!
    Thanks

    Very stiff, and not as thin as you think. Photo's don't show how flared out the stays are and how wide the single stay at the top is. Rear 10mm axle and 135mm add to the stiffness. I've not felt any flex and really impressed. I'm 180lbs.

    I'm thinking about using this frame for something like the Dirty Kanza - 200 miles of gravel. What say the masses?

    Would anyone who has the frame already not recommend it for gravel endurance racing?

    What's with the split seat stays for a belt drive? Is it doable with vertical dropouts?

    Maybe someone with a bit more expertise could chime in but I think it would be doable with an eccentric bottom bracket. I might be wrong though

    Took the plunge and splashed out!
    Bought the bike complete from On One here in England.
    Love the bike though for now it's not as a cross bike but as my road bike. Put 25mm Conti's on and the bike is as smooth as a smooth thing! I changed the stock saddle for a Selle Italia SLR XC and can thoroughly recommend this particular model, very comfy, even on a 5 1/2hr ride earlier this week.
    One more thing, ordered a XL frame but the 80mm stem was too short for me so this has been replaced by a PRO 110mm.

    Just got mine in a 54cm. Tubes are massive, with a 1.5 " bottom race on the headset and the downtube as big as they could make it. This will be a stiff ride, more so than a steel frame, which seems to be the frame of choice at the DK. I would use as big a tire as possible for endurance gravel rides. I read somewhere, I think even on an On One webpage, that 40mm rubber will fit.

    Thanks for the reply, Mudrock...while I was pretty interested at one point, I've decided to either stick with my Vaya, or use my 29er frame...both can accept pretty big rubber! Running Bontrager XR1 1.9's which are far too big for the DD. Enjoy your new ride though! I'm sure it will be a great bike for the riding you have in mind for it!

    What did you use for a front derailleur? I got my frame today and noticed that the cable routing is for a top pull derailleur. There is no guide under the bottom bracket or hole to route the normal bottom pull cable. So it looks like I will need to buy a new front derailleur.

    At first I used a road FD with the supplied pulley but did not like it. I switched to a SRAM XX top pull and it works fine as a double, much better than the road solution. I have smaller rings than traditional compact.

    Same here, went for a top pull SRAM X7 2x10 and works great.
    I initially used the pulley with a regular SRAM Rival and had nothing but troubles.

    my DD

    I got mine about a week and a half ago. I really love it. I moved over from a Kona Jake the Snake. I rode it last weekend in the RondePDX, a 50 mile ride all the hard west hills of Portland. The DD was great, I tossed some 700x35 slicks on it and felt awesome. We used my 29er MTB wheelset for now which is fine as I know I can beat the piss out of them and they keep going.




    My Dirty and Me.


    some close up shots:





    These are my old Conti Speed kings in 35mm size, the bottom bracket picture didn't turn out so I will take another later.


    My absolute favorite sticker (I'd love this as a Tshirt):
    "Rigorously tested by angry laboratory robots"


    Road BB7s make me smile



    Here is my current setup (after riding RondePDX):

    Hey,

    I'm thinking about taking the plunge on a Dirty Disco for a bad weather / light touring / CX bike, but I'm a little puzzled at the split frame design. I emailed On-One's technical department and they said they didn't know why the frame had been designed this way. If it was designed with the spilt to take a belt drive (using an eccentric bottom bracket as it does not have horizontal dropouts), then why is the non drive-side seat stay split as well?

    Has anyone seen a frame design like this before / have any idea of the reasoning behind it?

    The DD wouldn't be the best for touring, no rack eyelets etc. And the geo is a bit more on the racy side. As for the split seat stays, they are actually bonded together I think and don't split. I think Brant said it was done like this as part of some manufacturing process/design. I'm sure he could chime in.

    I've looked closely at mine and they definately don't come undone in anyway.

    Thanks for the info — would be nice to know a little bit more about that, as I say I've never seen anything like it. In terms of touring I was thinking more along the lines of ultralight, fast bike-packing using frame bags rather than a rack and panniers. A round the world bike race set off from London in February and the race leader is riding one of these — I thought it looked like an interesting set-up.

    I'm not able to post links yet, but a picture of his bike can be found with a quick Google image search for "world cycle racing grand tour."

    Looks good. The new frames bags these days are pretty cool.

    It's a tough little frame.

    Yes, that was the one I was looking at. He seems to be achieving pretty epic miles on it —*often around 200 a day over rough terrain in places like India and Australia.

    The stays use the same mold for all frame sizes to keep costs down. The joint allows the seat stay angle to be changed for the different sizes.

    Thanks for the info Shiggy, that makes sense. Do you know how the two parts of the frame are fixed together? Is there any movement in that joint?

    It's a SRAM Apex compact with 34/46T rings. As long as the X7 is 2x10 it will be compatible with any SRAM 2x10 crank

    On my 54, with Kenda 38c all purpose tires (really no wider than 35s) the standover is 31.5", or 80cm, midway down the toptube.
