    I'd like to see a shootout between the On One and the Niner Air 9 C. Both built as single speeds with the same components. Anyone done a comparison yet?
    I'm unique, just like everyone else....

    The frames are raw carbon. Confirming the price before we post them in the shop site.

    We are as frustrated by the delays with the Lurcher as you are. The frames are here. I doubt anyone would be happy with the lack of finish. I would not.

    Below I am holding the frame I photographed for the pic I posted earlier, and a few of the others in the shipment.

    Are these all single speed? Swapouts are removable so can be geared right?

    You can use any of the Swapouts, geared (vertical with hanger) or singlespeed (track tips). The frames do not have derailleur housing guides. There is a*high direct mount for the front derailleur.

    Maybe next week. More likely first week in January.
    We are getting quotes for the painting now. Once we decide on a painter we can set the price and delivery date.

    Proper transparency is good. We've been very open and continue to be so as we like it.
    Painting locally is a hurdle we didnt expect to have to overcome, but we wanted to move forward with this project.
    The 18in no guide frame is a puzzle to me but an anachronism created by our former designer.

    Thanks for your concerns, but honesty will get us there.

    Overall the most of the new carbon projects have been a bit of a drama, from both 29ers and the wheel set to the rims which never came. Transparency is good and deserves respect, but timelines need to be set more realistically (Lurcher slipped, like, a year or so?). What ever happened to those 200 quid carbon rims is another thing, they appeared, and then it became silent..

    So, just make the planning+comms as good as your products and everyone will be happy ;-)

    yup.

    the 456 and whippet came through well and other things got backed up.

    moving forward again now

    Can you keep/sell some of the unpainted ones? I'd actually prefer a raw looking carbon frame..

    From what I understand, the carbon should at least be clear coated for long term durability.

    Got this directly from On-One today, getting real tired of being jerked around....

    Dear

    You requested a stock alert from On-One on 20-12-2011.

    We're sorry to say that On-One Lurcher Carbon Hardtail 29er Singlespeed Frame 18 inch / Black and Red has now been discontinued. We are not expecting to get any more in stock.

    We usually discontinue an item when it is superseded by an alternative. Check out our site to see what's currently available or contact us to let us find you an alternative.

    super. fvcking. lame.

    i'm glad i gave up on the Lurcher when I did.
    I wonder if the two that showed as in stock on the On-One website actually got sold and shipped or if they just pulled the plug on the whole deal.

    seems like they need to get their cart and horse in the correct order. what a shame...

    Ben - give us a call on 650-284-5563.
    We have just received into our US office two clear coated 18" Lurcher frames with more being clear coated right now.

    Thank you,

    Shipped raw (unknown until arrival) from factory. No QC, I guess. Then sprayed clear by a (local) painter (with unknown experience painting carbon bikes) and now available for sale (to the gullible) on the Titus website.

    No thanks. More in the long line of Lurcher f-ups. Not the best way to get your first frames out into the (uncontested) land of liability lawsuits.

    You should just give them away to people in the know. You know enough of them. Then start over and do it right. But it would seem it would have been possible to start over 3 or 4 times in the duration of this bait-and-switch.

    Hi all.

    It doesn't look too good does it.

    All this is quite agonising as the back story to how we got here is littered with unfortunate mistakes and things we've learnt a lot.

    A few points:-

    1) These aren't our "first" carbon frames- The Lurcher is coming from the same factory as our 456 Carbon and Whippet frames. Both very highly regarded and confusing the heck out of lots of people who are puzzled as to why we can offer amazing product (3.5lb 160mm fork compatible hardtail) for a ridiculous low price (from £299).

    2) The factory we work with are great. I was there myself two weeks ago. The reason for the delays was a puzzling confusion from our somewhat junior purchasing team who were running our department at the time, and a Chinglish/English confusion about what "schedule" and "forecast" meant. Essentially the factory made nearly 4000 Whippet/C456 frames, and then (clearly) were reluctant to start Lurcher production until we had cleared that backlog.

    3) Frames arriving "unknown until arrival" in the USA is because (possibly uniquely in the bicycle industry), the "global nerve centre" of the on-one business is Rotherham, near Sheffield, England. Our chaps in our Portand warehouse are somewhat at the whims of what our current purchasing team book and put in a container for them. And to be fair, we did clear out a LOT of frames (including some of the 4000 Whippet and C456 frames) from China straight into Portland.

    4) QC. All taken care of structurally. And QC on frame finish is done at our side/before dispatch, so we can inspect for shipping damage which might have occurred on the way.

    5) Our production colours for Lurchers don't include red/black, (black/grey, black/orange, black/green are production), but as to why our clever stock system can't tell people that if someone unticks the box to say whether stock is available or not is something that I've tasked someone with this morning.

    Other frame models are available. We've got a bunch of riders out on early production samples and we're loving them. We're close. And we thank you all for your support and interest.

    Then sprayed by a local painter that has years of experience painting carbon, steel, and aluminum bicycles. He currently paints carbon frames for several other companies. He was not picked at random.

    YES

    And unfortunately, in the process of adding the "soon to arrive" frames to our site, our staff appear to have deleted the old ones and sent out "discontinued" alerts.

    We are looking into this.

    Not my thing, but a firehose turned on Stevo is a video I'd love to see. I am quite aware of the source of the initial problem. Now just fix them. The shipment to Portland, however, just seems like more Stevo.

    Should come with both swapouts, or an option for the one that is wanted.

    A few questions for you guys. The pics only show cable guides on the Black/Orange. Are there cable guides on all the frames? Or do I have to ask for them? Should I order from your UK site or from the US site? How do I know witch swapouts it comes with?

    None of the frames currently in the US have dérailleur housing guides.
    We will have US preorder for the painted frames available soon.
    I have not seen the UK stock.
    Just let us know which Swapouts you need.

    Wow. Thank goodness we have flawless individuals such as yourself monitoring these crucial details in our troubled times. Without your efforts, those negligent On One scofflaws would have us slide back into the dark ages.

    The rigid fork is only available in red/black. Why has the red/black color sheme been discontinued actually? Is it coming back anytime soon? And what about the other colors, will there be matching forks?

    @Titus USA
    Depending on the color 'situation' above, i am considering getting an 'unpainted' frame as well. when would be the latest date to order/arrange such a clear-cloated-only frame?

    best regards,
    Marcus

    matching rigid carbon tapered fork?

    any plan on producing matching rigid carbon tapered fork (green and orange) to go with the Lurcher?

    thanks.

    edit: another person has the same idea.

    Two bottle mounts
    External rear brake line guides
    No derailleur housing guides
    High direct mount front derailleur boss (housing stop is on the derailleur)
    Press fit BB92
    Swapouts not installed, but included with frame
    I just peed a little.

    Red/black tapered forks coming to suit the carbon race 29.
    Coloured other forks coming for lurchers.

    Sorry the range is confusing. We are getting there slowly.

    I know I've got more respect for them taking the time to answer questions and deal with customers despite this nonsense... As my friends who work at local bike shops say there are some people that walk into your shop that you want to pay to buy a bike from someone else...

    you should support them by buying a Lurcher... or some carbon rims.

    DS is taking it a bit far, but I feel his frustration. how long have you been following the Lurcher story? a LOT of hype and little to no delivery.... like the carbon rims.

    I've got nothing against the guys at On One and also respect them for providing info here, but there have been some very frustrating ball drops over there. they know it and they're trying to fix it, but that doesn't change what has already happened.

    I hope they get things worked out... I'm sure it's the least fun for all of them.

    What happened to the carbon rims? They were being talked about and then fell of the face of the earth it seems.

    If I was starting over and hadn't just bought a Scandal I'd buy a Lurcher. As far as dropping the ball we are talking bike parts here not the cure for cancer. So a bike part you might have wanted didn't show up when you wanted it. Get over it.

    Being a jerk to someone is never cool. If you don't want to support On One buy something else.

    Brant or Shiggy:

    Could one of you post up a pic of a Lurcher with the old O-O alu steerer fork. And kind of a little discussion/pictures RE: ease of setting up the Smootie Mixer (or Cane Creek or King) headset with that fork.

    If I can ever, first, get over being an ass, send vikb some flowers, and then get around to ordering one, I'll be like a few others needing to run that dinosaur up front for a little while.

    Yah, continued, mulit-year, good job guys. Open a pre-order with promise of Feb 28. Get some orders, then slip it to March 16.

    More of the same.

    Why the drama? Someone piss in your oatmeal? Dude sh!t happens, stuff gets pushed back, people come and go. Shiggy and Brant have been as forthcoming as anyone in the entire industry and you continue to bust their balls. So let me extend my personal invitation to you to give it a rest. If you don't like the way its playin out buy something else. I'm sure they'll sell every one they make with or without you.If you have something constructive to add feel free. AZ.

    Lurcher question

    Brant or Shiggy ,
    I preordered a lurcher last week and I plan on running it 1x10 . I use the mrp 1x guide on my 456 and I want to run one on the Lurcher . Which mrp 1x will work for the frame ? The direct mount one looks like it will sit too high , so do I need to use the seat tube clamp like a normal FD ??

    thanks Scab

    Is that the real price on the Titus store? $599.99?
    That is a crazy low price. Once those 18 inch frames are gone will the price go up to match the On-One UK store ($686 depending on dollar/pound conversion)?

    Are there any pics of a 21in…preferably built up?

    How does the quality of the carbon and frame compliance compare to the Planet X Dirty Harry?

    johnny, we just received a packing list for the Lurchers. US pre-orders will be online as soon as we get a departure confirmation (end of the week).
    Then about 3 weeks for the container to arrive.

    If you are not already on our contact list, please email sales@titusti.com with the size and model(s) you want.

    Will the Lurcher forks be available at the same time. Any guestimates on when complete bikes will be on sale? Just deciding whether to build or buy complete.

    We have the Carbon Race 29 fork in stock now in the US.
    On-One Carbon 29er Race Fork

    No time frame for when (or if) we would have complete Lurchers in the US. We can put together build kits on request.

    I am in Australia so should I use UK or USA store? Been browsing the UK store but need complete bike or build kit since my 26er was flattened by a bus! The Inbred bundles look a bargain so maybe I go that way...

    Just check out the total cost from each including shipping and decide from there.

    There's also an Australian agent, but I found them slightly more expensive than the total cost from the UK, and with fewer models.

    I just got off the phone with a pleasant sounding Englishman who noted that the Lurcher would not be coming out in Red Rum anytime soon. That is my favorite of the color schemes and is what would have made my credit card come out of my wallet very quickly for the pre-order. Bummer on that one.
    What I forgot to ask though, is the On-One website notes one set of water bottle cage mounts, yet the pictures show two. So which is it for a 16 inch frame - 2 bolts for one or 4 bolts for two cage mounts?

    The website is correct. There is one set on the 16in, 18in, 19.5in and 21in.

    There is also another set too.

    There are two sets on all sizes.

    Glad to hear they're finally making it into customers' hands.
    Can't wait to see build pics.

    My Kona Raijin may be built up this week as well.

    I'm very interested in one of these and am very tempted by the "single speed" only frame price. These only come in a 18". I'm 5'11 and do ride other 29er frames in 18". These do have a short ETT. Anyone else my height riding this size frame? Whats the weight of the 18" frame? Whats the standover height?

    My other 29er Single speeds are a Ragley TD:1 (16lbs 5oz) A vassago Optimus Ti and a Nimble 9. They all fit me fine. I do feel that I could have been just fine on the larger nimble.

    I have the 16" frame and mine has 2 bottle cage mounts. It is also an incredibly sweet bike... love the geometry. I just rode it for the first time a few hours ago. Definitely will share the photos here soon.

    Good place to empty the wallet... My 16" Lurcher rides super-sweet! All the fun of big wheels with nimble handling. Super light even without me really going all that weight-weenie on the components. (I have yet to weigh the full bike).

    Bike build:
    Fork: RockShox Reba RLC 100mm
    Wheels: Stans Crest w/ Stans hubs
    Drive train: Shimano XT 2x10
    Brakes: Shimano XT
    Rotors: Shimano ice tech
    Seat Post: Thompson
    Stem: Thompson (50mm)
    Handlebars: Easton Haven Carbon
    Pedals: Straightline AMP
    Front Tire: Schwalbe racing ralph (2.4 - I know they recommend 2.3, but hey... no mud in summer in Norcal)
    Rear Tire: Maxxis Ikon

    As you can see, still gotta trim some cables, but it's rockin'. Last pic has the finishing mud touches.

    For those with the single speed frame, what do the dropouts look like? Are they swinger styles?

    If you get the small size (16"), because of the bottle cage bolt bosses inside the frame it is better NOT to use a 400mm seatpost.

    I see a problem with the drop out bolt nuts, they have a flat slit like some chainring bolts and I see a potential risk of stripping them, it would have been better to have a hex bolt instead.

    There are no 16" paint proto sionglespeed only frame on sale!

    Other than that, so far so good, this frame is quick, light and stiff like a supercharged scandal, and with better tire clearance too!
