    Thanks!! 35mm less than is on their site, which was kinda what I was hoping to see. Going by that rough difference, I'd be good on a large. Hrmmmm

    Does anyone have the wheelbase figures, I am trying to determine if I need a Med or Large?

    unfortunately, the Website says Large is out of stock to August.

    Review or just babble....

    On one Codeine
    Well three rides around my local/fav haunt Llandegla and time for some thoughts. After the first ride it became immediately apparent ALL manufacturers should include chain stay protectors though some may disagree of course, it got battered. Top tube shows dulling from shorts and any contact with cables needs protecting asap if you want to keep you baby looking good. Looking from the rear the dropper cable was routed left of frame with the guide fitted below the top tube. The effect with the seat dropped was severe tyre rub on said cable. I solved it by taking the seat post out and feeding it through the frame so cable came out right side looking from rear.
    When you go out first ride might be handy to have a couple of small sockets with a reference line scribed on for the two pairs of adjusters on the CC (cane creek) shock. The supplied tool is handy for small adjustments though.
    Nitty Gritty: There are enough reviews about the pikes already. These are my first and work great but so do the xfusion slants on my 456ti. I have the CC set with 135psi for my 14st riding weight and for firmer ride characteristics. Out on the trail this bike rocks! Seat position works well for climbing and climbs as well or better than anything Iíve ridden so far though I havenít done any techie climbs. Like they say, it winches. Single track twisty stuff it loves just as the vid and I didnít detect any wheel flex. Strikes me when youíre flat out on rough ground, handles as well as the tallboy I test rode but the BB doesnít seems as low (no pedal strikes). The 760mm bars feel instantly at home and in the air this thing feels well balanced from the off. As for the brakes smooth and well controlled is how I would describe them. Not as sharp as my xtís but plenty powerful and confidence inspiring. Canít fault the tyres in the dry, not tried them in the wet yet but roll pretty well and no grip issues though my mate on his Gyro coasted past me on a little freewheel comp we do, think heís on mountain kings. Interestingly my mate asked me what I could see from the cockpit as we rode along some flat ground now maybe itís a slightly forward bias but in front of the bars I was seeing almost the rear of the top of the fork legs if that makes sense making the Codeine feel slacker than my 456ti which IS actually the slacker with a 10mm longer stem and can only see the front edge of the forks. What Iím getting at is the Codeine feels slacker and therefore more stable but still changes direction easily. The drive train deserves a mention as it performed flawlessly though on a few occasions I changed up coming into a climb, lifetime on Shimano eh? Looking forward to some natural rides ie Lake District now. All in all Iím a happy bunny, if your riding is enduro type youíll love it. Hope this helps. Btw I spotted the 650b proto at Llandegla last Saturday very similar to the Codeine as per frame, shock and linkage but noticeably slacker. Any questions feel free peeps.

    Anyone have 29Codeine yet?

    Can someone post photos to scope the crank area, maybe from above looking down?

    Want to see if a hacked cage,, or custom mount somewhere could make a 2x possible

    There's been more noise on the On-One FB page about a 27.5 version...could be a winner.

    All prototype at this stage but I'm happy to see little touches like what looks like reverb stealth routing!?
