    On One Inbred Build

    Got my frame yesterday and so I installed a couple of items. Thought I would share my build.



    Build List:
    Have already
    Frame - On One Inbred 18" Orange
    Fork - 08' Fox F29 RLC
    Headset - S3 + 5
    Stem - Thomson Elite 90mm 5degree
    Seatpost - Thomson Elite 410
    Crankset - Eno w/32 tooth chainring
    Brakes - Avid Elixer CR

    Ordering soon
    Handlebars - Salsa Moto Ace 17sweep
    Grips - Ergon (not sure which ones)
    Seatpost clamp - Salsa quick clamp
    Bottom Bracket - Shimano un54 (I think 115 width)
    Wheelset - No Idea Yet (Possibly the Stans ZTR with Arch or Flows)
    Rear cog - Not sure brand but 20 tooth
    Chain - I will just order when I order the wheelset
    Pedals - Can not decide between clip or not so I do not know
    Seat - Charge Spoon
    Tires - Not sure

    Let me know if you have any thoughts on the parts I will be ordering, alternates or suggestions. I live in Southern CA and weigh about 155lb's. Thanks and I will update the thread as I receive more of the parts.
    Mike

    nice color choice for frame. I am looking at those, as well...Are the stickers clear coated over or do they seem they would be easily removed? Something i just do not like; a website url/advertisement on something im using....

    Ya the stickers are clear coated over. I like the orange color as well, it's very bright in person. Can not wait to finish it and to be able to ride her.

    I'm hijacking this thread with my Inbred build:



    19,5" Inbred 29er
    Reba 29" w/poploc
    Hope headset
    Juicy 7 with Hope rotors
    Hope Pro II / Stan's 355, singlespeed hub with bolts rear (very LOUD! )
    Stan's 29" rimstrip and sealant
    Kenda Nevagal Stick-E 2,25"
    Truvativ Stylo GXP 180mm 32t cranks (Middleburn Uno 180mm and XT bb waiting for installation)
    20t cog winter / 18t cog summer
    On-One schaintugs on both sides
    Thomson Elite seatpost
    Truvativ XR Stem (Thomson some day...)
    On-One Fleegle bars 710mm
    Fizik Pavé saddle
    XTR 970 pedals
    WTB grips
    On-One qr seatclamp

    The frame replaced my old Haro Mary, which was a bit small for me... Ride feel is quite similar with both frames.

    Nice build! How do you like those 355 rims? I am looking at having stans build a set for mine. I am about 170 geared up. Good choice on the color as well. The orange is super bright in person.

    great looking frames. I have one of the original white ones.
    I have a definate love/hate relationship with mine.
    I love the way it rides, but the head tubes are too short for us tall guys.

    Yeah, it seems the "mail order" type steel frames have this problem... no idea why, cheaper I guess.
    I'm replacing mine with a Sette Razzo frame for the time being

    Very nice. I got my General Inbred Lee yesterday. Build likely won't happen until this coming w/e.




    BTW: "Seatpost clamp - Salsa quick clamp" After years of running Salsa, I tried a Hope QR. I much prefer it over the Salsa. I like the way I can swing the lever up after tightening. Less likely to snag my baggies when getting back on the downhills.

    Compared to Mavic Maxtal alloy rims the material seems to be softer. I already dented the rear wheel quite badly, which has never happened with Mavic XC717 that I've had for four years now...

    Lovely builds.

    thinking about getting an orange inbred too.

    Do the frames need alot of prepping as they get delivered?
    Are there any 'home mechanics' ways to do it without all the expensive tools. I'm thinking headtube, bracket and diskbrake tabs. Any one doing it themselves? Tips?

    On 2 previous Inbreds, I've only sprayed the insides of the tubes with framesaver (Boeshield) and had the bottom bracket faced (done at shop for ~$20). Didn't worry about the head tube or the disk mounts. A slight sanding of those surfaces just to remove any paint bumps. No issues in over 3 years. I'll do the same with my new one.

    Nice bikes.
    I Like the new orange color very much.
    thinking 'bout ordering one myself.
    Right now I'm riding mine with an Alfine, might be a good idea to build on as a singlespeed instead of constantly changing parts.

    I don't understand how the top tube could be to short on this bikes.
    Or is it you bought them to small ?
    I'm 1,83m (6ft), inseam 34" and with relative long arms I fit just fine on my 19.5" Inbred.
    110mm stem, low riser.
    Belgian beer and Scotch whisky.

    I run a couple of inches of spacers under my stem, to get a little more upright. But I'm also using the Fleegle bar, which is flat. I'll probably get a riser of some sort for the new build.



    I run 6'3" 35" inseam on a 19.5 with a laid back Thomson. Works for me.

    Oops, my mistake.
    Now it figures...

    I read somewhere that the short headtube is by design.
    It helps to keep the bars down.
    I have my stem pointed down, no spacers.
    I find it gives me more leverage when climbing.
    Belgian beer and Scotch whisky.

    As for frame prep, I pressed the headset cups in myself with a press I made. I am using a square taper bottom bracket so facingof the BB shell was not needed for me. The disk mounts I was told by UnrealCycles that they have built a ton of these up and have never faced them. I have not installed them yet though, so we will see when I get to them. I have never heard about using framesaver as this is my first steel frame. Not sure if I am going to use it or not, might just spray some WD40 in all areas that I can get to and hope for the best. Anywyas I ordered more parts the other day and they should be arriving soon. Got the BB, Charge Spoon seat (black), Salsa Moto Ace bars, 17 sweep in black, and the Salsa quick release in black. I will update with new pics as I get more parts and Install.
