    Inbred 29 build thread

    After months of planning I've finally got the parts to build my inbred... I can't wait till I'm off work so I can go into work and finish it on my own time.

    There is a frame like yours on the auction site here in NZ and I'm tempted to go after it but never having built a bike from parts I'm a bit nervous ;] so I'll be watching this thread for hints and tips.

    Building a frame like this is pretty easy. The only thing to note is that I sprayed the inside with T-9 (rust inhibitor) for some peace of mind. Building a bike is all about having the correct tools, if you don't have them go to a local bike shop.

    Very nice... Cant tell you how much i love my 2nd Gen Inbred 29er (with Flows). Seriously an awesome riding bike. It is responsive, takes a good amount of the bump off most stuff and setup with a good fork it is near a superhero!!! With 100mm up front I feel like it is completely responsive without being twitchy (running a 19.5" with a 70mm stem). I have had multiple people stop me and talk to me about it, riding or not, and have completely blown the doors off guys in much more expensive bikes.

    What all are you setting her up with? Put up your spec list and waiting to see what she looks like and your ride impressions!!! NOTE: be careful with rear tire clearance and some front derailleurs, I have an M770 XT fd and with anything larger than 2.2" I have to just about slide the wheel all the way back to get clearance. I started out running a set of 2.35" tires and the rear wheel was as far back as I could go to clear them.

    Nearly finished... I need a longer bolt and some spacers for my chain guide and I need to get some long rides in to finalize my position and cut the housing and hoses. First thing that hit me was how much more comfortable the total package is than the motobecane outcast.

    my first inbred build

    Anxiously awaiting my inbred 29er swap-out frame and was curious as to others' thoughts on forks.

    The question, for me, is not whether to run rigid, but what rigid fork to try. Any good/bad thoughts on any of these:
    white bros rock solid
    on one cro-mo
    salsa grande
    surly KM
    origina 8 black ops

    Drew, you must live in Florida...

    I've heard many good things about the new Surly KM. Thinner tubing, lighter weight, sleeker looks, etc. The older models weren't the greatest (from what I've heard). I haven't seen any steel On-One forks around, but if you can find one, I'd go with that strictly because of aesthetics. The salsa is more expensive, but they're in high demand and you'll be able to resell it if rigid isn't your thing. From this store its actually cheaper than the KM, so I'd pull the trigger on it now to save $30 or so.

    I'll be running my inbred with a Kona P2 I've had for some years, but like some of those forks you listed, don't seem to be in stock.

    Update

    Work has been slow so I took the time to go tubeless, the conversion was a breeze. The tires easily inflated without lubrication while using a floor pump. I'm still awaiting different bars/stem.

    Most recent picture of mine after pulling her down and dusting her off for the season. Just changed the front tire to a GEAX Gato to match the GEAX Saguaro in the rear. After a short gravel path ride with some pop offs the Gato seems like a great tire. Should have a better idea this weekend. Seat of the pants weight is about 28lbs.

    Looks Great! I got the same frame in orange and have everything, except for the fork waiting in the garage to be built up. Have a Salsa cromoto grande on the way that KodiakBear mentioned from Outsideoutfitters. What size frame are you running there? The 16" Inbred's effective top tube length is about 1/2" longer than my 16" Vassago, add in the different seat tube angle and I am not sure about stem length and if I will want any offset in the seatpost. I am just going to use an old Titec seatpost for now and experiment with several different stem/bar combinations I have in my garage and figure out exactly what I want. I plan to run mine with gears, since I already have a Vassago Jabberwocky SS. I need to mount the BB and crank to see if the GEAX Gato will allow me enough room to run a front derailleur. If I can, plan to run a 2X9 setup.

    If this thing rides anything like it looks, it is going to be kick a$$. Welds on my frame are the best I have ever seen on any production steel frame. After purchasing the frame from Planet X, was planning on just slowly picking up parts here and there when good deals popped up. I did start out that way, but as soon as I got a set of wheels, it was a done deal. Freak'in obsession I tell you. Been 4 years since I built up a bike and forgot how much fun this part of the process is.

    I've just put two SLX crank sets on my Inbreds. Nice looking cranks without spending a fortune.

    I like the Shimano cranks, cheap and work fine for me (Deore LX, Hone).
    Don't forget to have the frame bb faced when using external bb bearings.

    I second that, you just might want a new (steel) middle ring. 32x16 is beast for a 29er IMO. Jenson has them for 130 I believe.

    I went with LX's on mine. People have said they're about a good as SLX's and XT's, which I doubt, but they have nonetheless gotten good reviews and are cheap.

    I am very partial to shimano stuff as far as value and durability are concerned. Can't wait to see your build!

    hi guys

    question, i've ordered the On One Inbred 29er Single Speed LTD Edition. question is i bought a set of dt swiss sl450 that come off a geared specialized, will i be able to run the ss conversion kit on the rear hub with no issue, does the distance between the rear stays(axle length) accomodate for this or would i have to get a short freehub?

    ps. I'm new to single speeders

    Assuming they are the usual mountain bike 135mm width and 9mm axle, they will work fine.
    I've just built up a Inbred 29er LTD and I'm using the normal wheels off my Trek Sawyer with a shim stack and a single speed cog. Works great and lets you get a perfect chain line.

    I have taken the plunge and I'm getting a On One Inbred 29er Single Speed (not so) LTD Edition in 21 inch in the Pearl White paint with the On One Carbon fork.

    thank you for being generous with all your build details. This will be a project bike for me so im taking the time to build it with the best parts i can.

    so far my kit swag looks like
    the frame kit,

    OnOne Inbred 29er Single Speed LTD Edition / 21 inch / Pearl White
    OnOne Fleegle Pro Handlebar / White /
    OnOne 6061T6 Forged Alloy Seatclamp Bolt Up
    OnOne Smoothie Regular Headset
    OnOne 3D Forged Stem / 80 mm / Polished Black / 17 degrees /
    HOnOne Spacer Set / Black
    OnOne Carbon Fork / 11/8 / Black / 29er
    OnOne Twelfty MTB Seatpost

    Parts bought
    Avid elixer 5 (black)
    Oury grips in Hot Pink or Orange

    parts to gets
    wheels [single speed only, not fixed]
    chain, cogs,
    disk rotors (prob 180/160)
    Crank Bros Candy pedals

    I'm looking for advice on what cranks and BB to source. I want the axel lengths to be as close to spot on as possible to get good chain alignment. can anyone help me out?

    I will upgrade the bike with a suspension fork and a hub gear in the not too distant future so this will be my project bike.

    cheers

    If you haven't already placed the OnOne order, get a seatpost clamp, the 29.8 size is a bit hard to find.
    The OnOne cogs and single speed chain ring are usually good deals - haven't checked the price lately.
    The best deals on rotors is usually on Ebay although you just missed some great rotor deals on Chain Reaction.
    As far as a crank, I'd just watch for the best deal you can find - everyone seems to like the Shimano SLX cranks. Jenson has them for $90 right now but looks like you are in Australia. You can sell the chain rings to offset some of the cost. The Shimano cranks are good because you can play with shims for the chainline.
    If you already have a 29er, you can pickup a rear wheel only and use your other front. I do that for several of my bikes.

    Does anyone know when Swap out Inbred 29 frames will be in stock? And do the new ones have the ISCG mounts? How about 2 water bottle mounts?

    I'll likely be looking to order a frame in the next couple of months. Keep the photos and build specs coming.

    Im not sure about the frames. might be best to contact On One. only they will know their stock levels and what might be on order.
    if your keen for mounts then remember that having a steel frame means you can find a frame builder to "tweak" the frame if you need it.

    I've finally now got my frame and I've finished building it up.
    its got a good mix to the components and after I finish playing with the setup I will be able to report about how it rides and start on planning stage 2 and 3 of my project bike.

    It's going to be my "get out and ride" bike. I still have my road bikes gathering dust and my other 29" mountain bike is still there for when I go to riding but this will be used to get milk or de stress. It's a BMX bike with 29" wheels instead of 20"


    No gears, no ultra fancy ultra light bits, no suspension forks to worry about.

    Bike Setup
    STAGE 1 (complete)

    Frame: On-One Inbred 29er Slot Dropout Pearl White
    Fork: On-One Carbon Fork
    headset: On-One Smoothie Regular Headset
    Seatpost: On-One Twelfty MTB Seatpost
    Stem: On-One 3D Forged Stem
    Seat Clamp: On-One TECH Series CNC Quick Release Seat clamp
    Handlebar: On-One Fleegle Pro Handlebar
    Tyres: package
    Cranks: Shimano SLX 175mm (green bolts)
    Front Ring: 34t
    Rear Cog: 18t
    Chain: no idea but it works
    Wheels: Mavic Crossride 29
    Disc Brakes: Avid Elixir 5
    Discs: Avid HS 1 (160mm)
    Grips: ESI (blue)
    Pedals: Crank Brothers Candy 2 (orange)
    Saddle: plank of wood?

    Stage 2: (projected mid 2014)
    100mm Suspension forks TBA (Reba/SID quality)

    Stage 3: (projected 2015)
    Hub Gear TBA

    so how do they climb? Lots of rear grip? How about the descent, is the HT angle slack enough to make it match the new offerings?
    I also wonder about the security of the slot drop outs on a geared setup. Anyone slipping wheels on drops or anything?

    Inbred 29 build thread-1.jpg


    I have two inbreds....darn those on-one frame sales! I would recommend a 100mm fork on these. The on-one site shows two sets of specs on their page and mentions both a 80mm and 100mm (max) fork size. I've emailed them and they said the frame was designed 'for' a 100mm fork, so there you go. Although, the on-one carbon fork you can tell is much closer to an 80mm riding height and lowers the BB.

    The first time I rode a 29er it was a vassago steel frame and fork. One of the first things I remember thinking was that there was a surprising amount of suspension feel on the front wheel. No so with the on-one carbon fork. This thing beats me up going downhill. I'm still waiting to get another tower pro for the second bike.

    I haven't had slippage issues with the track dropouts with my bolt-on hub, but I did get longer bolts just so I could get them extra tight without messing up threads. The few times I've ran a quick release with the surly chain tugg, I didn't have a problem either. The on-one chain tuggs also come in a quick release specific version.

    As far as how they climb, I'm on a single speed and I'm limited by my f34t-r18t combo with regard to everything speed related on that bike. Hands down it's the best MTB I own. It rides like a giant BMX, it's fun, tracks well and I'm happy with how it descends. I'm yet to go off road with it but the single speed was built to be my "get out and ride" bike. I still have my road bikes gathering dust and my other 29" mountain bike is still there for when I go to riding but this will be used to get milk or de stress. It's a BMX bike with 29" wheels instead of 20"

    No gears, no ultra fancy ultra light bits, no suspension forks to worry about.

    The slot drop outs are a simple fix. Get a good chain tug. or if your wanting to use the frame you mentioned then i dont see there being any issues. if your wanting to use gears i'd probably recommend using the frame with the vertical dropouts instead.

    Well, I'm about to pull the trigger on an inbred 29 frame with swap dropouts unless a deal comes up used real fast or i get a comparable price on a Kona Unit etc. But at the Inbred pricepoint it seems it can't be beat.
    I have a New fork and a complete SLX drivetrain waiting for it. Just need to find a wheelset that is light on a budget.

    Can you lace your own wheels? If you can look at BikeHubStore.com and use their hubs and some Kinlin Rims and then buy your spokes from Dan's Comp (you get free nipples with each spoke) and they you can have a pretty killer set of wheels for cheap.

    the Mavic wheelset i have on my inbred are good solid wheels. I'm really happy i got them and if you ever get a fork that has a Maxel axel then its a simple change and your in business.

    if you can get the swap out drop outs then id go for it and put the vertical drop outs on it.
    im really happy with the bike. its my project frame and when i can afford it I will do the stuff ive previously detailed.

    good luck

    I ccan lace my own wheels and I actually have a set of hubs (nothing too special) that have 160R and 180F rotors. I'll look into the prices to see if it can come out cheaper to lace up a set with tubeless rims as I hope to go that route soon.

    Fender question.
    Inbred 29er frame has rack mounts. Would it be possible to add rear fender and fix it to the rack mounts somehow? Anyone who tried?
    It looks possible, however I don't really know which fender (or mudguard) would be applicable. (For example: Sledgehammer | Inbred 29er | Readers Rides - As Seen On TV )

    Anyway, this is my Inbred 29er:

    My kid with his older Inbred before the last 20 mile descent on an October four day Kokopelli ride.

    Wheels are RH rims with 2.4 Conti X-King rear, 3.0 Knard front. KM fork.
    There's two chainrings (32-24) on the crank but no front derailleur. Shifting is done by hand or foot! Regular 11-36 10 speed cassette.

    Hi guys,

    yesterday I have completed my Inbred 29er SSP. Soon I will change the black stem with a green stem and the current tires with RaceKing 2.2 tires.

    How do you like it?

    Looks great, I might have to get one myself. How tall are you? Is that the 19.5" frame? What fork is that? I haven't followed On One in a while... looks like BB7's fit now?!

    Im just a hair over 5'10". This is an 18" frame. I spent a ton of time trying to figure out whether to go with 16" or 18" because i didn't want to be too stretched out. The fork is a Kona P2 off of a Kona Unit i picked up used with the BB7's for a bargain. Rotors are 180 front and rear. You could make a 160 rear work with a 20mm IS adapter but its really difficult to adjust the cable clamp and you dont get all of the travel of the sliders before the arm hits the seat stay. I played with it for a while and had it working by pre tightening the cable and taking up some of the travel in the arm prior to bolting the caliper to the frame. I wouldnt recommend it though because the second you want to adjust anything you'll instantly have 45 minutes of mucking around to do. So i swapped out the adapter to a 40mm IS and a 180 rotor and everything fits perfectly now.

    This bike has gone through a lot of bike changes over the years.

    It has settled on a fixed commuter/tourer to which I think it handles well.

    Specs:

    18in Inbred frame
    Cane Creek S3
    Salsa Enabler Fork
    Fat Sheeba
    Endomorph 3.6
    LX Cranks
    36t chainring
    Stans ZTR Flow
    Paul WORD disc hub
    Velosolo 16t
    Big Apple 29x2.35 tubeless
    Titec J Bar
    BB7 160mm
    XTR Brake lever
    Sun Ringle flats
    Ibera RA5 rear rack
    Ibera pannier
    Sette cooler trunk bag (for lunch)
    M Revelate Tangle bag
    King Cages
    Salsa Everything Cage

    I love this frame and I do not think I will ever get rid of it.

    Can you share clearance photos of the back? What is the rear tire size you are running there?

    Do you think you could run Blunt 35 650b rims with 2.8 Trailblazers in back?

    Orange round - the approximate 650b wheel with 2,8 trailblazer in Inbred 29er frame.

    I sold these wheels. I'm now running a 2.25 Nobby Nic on a Blunt SS in the back. The inbred doesn't have a ton of clearance so i doubt a 2.8 would work due to the shape of the chain stays. Here are some photos of the Nic with the dropouts in the front 1/4 of the dropouts.

    i should add that it looks closer the the sidewall than it is because the camera is centered over the tread/chainstay dimple. Nevertheless, i dont think B+ on an inbred is practical.

    650B+ wtb trailblazer 2.8 and velocity blunt 35mm rims does not fit in the back. It fits, but with tire run out, there is rubbing. It's a no go.

    I just ordered my On-One inbred 18" frame and looking forward to building it up! I am hoping that the size I went with inst too small and hoping other riders can chime in. I am 6'1" with an inseam of 34".

    I am your same size and have been riding the 18" frame for several years. I stretched the cockpit by using an 80mm stem and a 25mm layback seatpost. It will depend somewhat on your proportions and your preferences, but I think you will be OK on it. BTW, if you compare the 18" to the 20", the seat tube is 2" longer, but the front triangle is only 1 cm longer, so not much help. That's why I went with the 18".

    Awesome! Thanks for the info man. I am coming from a XL Karate Monkey that was wayyy to big for me but I got a deal on it. Seems like the 18" runs a little bit bigger than most other frames. Do you have pics of yours?

    The title of this thread is specific to the 29er Inbred, but mine is 26er. I think the 29er isn't available on even number sizes, so I'm pretty sure yours is 26er as well, right?

    How's this? There are a lot of On-One parts on this bike.

    OK, for some reason I was thinking the 29er version was built using odd sizes (15, 17, 19 etc). Thanks for the correction. I looked up the geometry chart and the 18" 29er has an effective top tube of 619mm while mine is only 602mm. This frame should fit you really well.

    Yeah I think so also. Have a straight 410mm seat post for now with a 70mm stem to test. Can always make adjustments if necessary! Thanks for the feedback.

    Im pretty sure this is a mistake on their site. I contacted on-one about this... like... two years ago, and they still haven't corrected it...

    I believe that the geometry page shown for the regular vertical dropout model is correct, while the geometry for the ltd version is bogus. you'll notice the geometry chart on the ltd page has sizes that you cant order, that is, the sizes simply dont match up. As far as im aware, the 18" 29er LTD i bought has a 602mm ETT

    This is the frame I bought:

    One One Inbred 29 Single Speed Frame | eBay

    His measurement says:

    18 inch C-C, 21 Center to Top. 24" long top tube so this is for a taller rider. Probably 6 foot or more.

    so that would be the largest frame size, based on the center of the bottom bracket to the top of the seat tube dimension.

    i just measured my Center to top Dimension (for what is supposed to be an 18"), and its 457mm, which would be consistent with the vertical dropout chart,

    not the ltd chart, even though it is the ltd model

    i can only imagine how much confusion this has caused for them, so im surprised it hasn't been fixed yet

    i don't have any experience in terms of bike fitting. i only commented because i had the same confusion with regards to sizing.

    the frame measurements on ebay are sloppy, so the C to Top of seat tube is the only thing you have to go by. One one doesn't state their actual top tube lengths, and the ebay ad doesn't say if that effective, center to center, or just the top tube between the welds.. etc. If its the 21" on the vertical dropout geometry page, or the 20" on the LTD page(if there are really two different sets of frame geometry for the same bike), its probably going to be longer than your karate monkey.

    Not sure why you wouldn't start your own thread for this question.
    You will need to run a real short stem.
    I'm 6' 1" with a 34" inseam when measured for bike fit, not pant's inseam.
    I ride the 19.5 frame and it fits me with around 90mm stems and about a foot or so of seatpost showing.
    I have one 18" frame and need a 410mm seatpost to get enough insertion.

    A couple of the 19.5 frames:


    The 18" frame:

    Monday I received my 21" used frame from winning an eBay auction and was super excited. Only to find this:

    Inbred 29 build thread-1.jpg

    Inbred 29 build thread-2.jpg

    Inbred 29 build thread-3.jpg

    I filed a claim and seller refunded my money but lesson learned. I decided rather to buy used I purchased a new one direct from on-one. Just thought I would share my experience on here and will continue to post pictures of my build. I did however get to keep the frame and am looking into repairing it. I was also able to determine that the 21" frame is a bit too big for me and ordered the 19.5". Cheers!

    Archex on Hope Evo Pro II; ardent 2.4 front, 2.25 rear.
    Xt cranks, changing between 1x9 and 3218,19, 20) depending on what's happening, same for the saddle and bars - but currently SDG bel-air and Thomson xc carbon ~720mm(?) ish.
    SLX brakes 180mm front, 160mm rear.
