Here are some photos and comments on my 19.5" Lurcher.
1) This is a great bike -- super all-round geometry, very stiff and light and responsive frame. And what a price -- $600 for frame and fork at sale prices. Typical of On-One to design a great product from scratch and then sell it at a superb price.
2) I did not have the money for a suspension fork at this time, so I put this On-One monocoque fork on. Glad I did. It is VERY light and strong and flexy enough to help on the rocky/rooty trails.
3) So far this is a budget build with a plan to upgrade as I can afford it. Most of the smaller components are inexpensive and not so light. My hope is to replace things as I go, to end up with a lighter, faster, better bike in the long run. The wheelset, for example, is s $300 special. Nice WTB LaserDisc UST rims but the WTB hubs aren't anything like CK. Great way to get the Lurcher up and running, though.
4). I put a 1x10 XT setup on it with an On-One 32t chainring and bashguard on the front and a Shimano 10-speed setup on back. This is the crispest, smoothest rear mech/shifter combo I have ever had.
5). Weight at this point is 22 lbs. Here are more details on what's on this Lurcher:
@ Shimano PF92 BB with SLX crank
@ MAXM seatpost and Specialized Phenom Expert 143mm saddle
@ On-One oversize riser bar, Smoothie Mixer headset, ODI grips and Titus 110mm/6 degree stem
@ Tubeless setup with Bontrager 29-3 in front and Geax Saguaro in back
@ XT brakes and Shimano SPD pedals.
This is a great bike and a super value for what I have into it.
