    Can you post a pic of your tire in the frame?

    Can somebody in the know tell me if this frame shares a derailleur hanger with the fireline. I'd like to have a backup ready to go.

    Ordered a frame from the UK and started to transfer parts over from my current 29er. Just about done and discovered that one of the holes on the rear post mount was drilled crooked. There's no way to mount the rear caliper and have it lined up correctly. Called On One USA and they told me I would have to contact On One UK to go through warranty process. I guess the UK and USA offices don't talk to each other. I emailed On One UK, can't wait for the response. QA needs to be improved on this frame

    Bike shop was able to mount caliper using conical washer. Looks kind of funny but at least it works. Check the post mounts if you buy this frame.

    Resisting. Waiting for better sale. In the mean time, I should figure out what size I need. I'm 5'8" with 31" inseam. Longer legs than some my size. Small with longer post and stem or Medium with shorts post and stem? Any personal experience?

    Thanks for all the info.

    I just ordered a L and then got really worried about the standover height. I am 6'0 with 34.5 inseam (long legs and arms) and saw the standover is measured at 881mm for the Large frame (34.6). I don't want a ball-basher of a TT, do you have any clearance issues since we are the same height?

    All of the other numbers I really dig (except maybe the wheelbase length) and believe it will fit me better than my current Yelli Screamy which is a Large. I am a bit cramped in the cockpit on the Yelli unless I run a 100mm stem (think I should have gone with an XL, but don't have the cash to try again) and really want to get a shorter stem / geo going......

    How is the clearance? Any other ride comments? If clearance is ok, I'll keep my order in, otherwise I'll have to cancel. Thanks!

    The SO height is the only fly in my ointment for this bike. Otherwise, I really want one!

    I had thecrackerasscracker measure standover on his Large at the front of the chainring for me. While I've lost the numbers (think it was 30.5-31.5"), it's way less than the listed 34.6".

    I am 6'5" with around a 35" inseam and the standover is fine 30.5 from the ground fork set at 130mm. I run a 55mm stem with 770mm wide bars it feels great
    It might get a little steep from here

    Thats a DHR2 - 2.35" in the rear mounted on a 22mm internal rim. I'm not sure a 2.5 would fit. You'd probably get some rubbing.

    So the actual seat tube angle appears to be 69 but the effective is 71 with my bars and saddle level.

    My HA is 67.5 with the 2013 Fox 34-120 CTD.

    I'm 6'4" and wear 33 inseam pants. The fit is great. Such a fun bike. It rips.

    Awesome. Thanks for showing the stand over height.

    Makes you wonder how On-One measures the SO height.

    I forget what the exact numbers are but I bought a Pike to replace this fork for a different bike. This Fox fork set at 140mm travel was almost identical AC to the pike at 150. Makes sense looking at the parkwood's published geometry too. The fox slacked out the HA and SA a hair. I never tried running the fork at 140 on the Parkwood. The 120 seems great.

    I just finished this lg frame up. Built using many of the components from my felt nine. Running a 100mm reba rl for now. Its either an 80mm or 90mm stem on there. Converted from 3x to 2x in the front for extra clearance over logs.

    I just ordered one also. I ordered the FSA headset they recommend and sell on the on-one site. I figure I'll get a 1 1/8 spacer-reducer locally for my old 1 1/8 fork.

    Can anyone confirm good tire clearance with a wide 28/35mm wide 29er rim and a 2.4 tire (like an Ardent or something) on the rear of the Parkwood?

    Thanks a lot in advance if you can help!

    When you mount a brand new Ardent 2.4 on a 28 mm Flow its fits but is very tight and you get some tire rub depending how much your wheel flexes. After the tire stretches it will barely fit and always rub ( see post#45). I have a set of 35mm carbon wheels and the tire is much wider mounted on them compared to the 28mm Flows .I bet the tire would not even turn if I put it in the Parkwood frame.

    crapballs - that's a flaw for a frame like this.

    I'm interested in Derby wheels which are 35mm wide.. Do you think a 2.2 tire would fit in the rear?

    Thanks.. Looks like you could do 2.35 as well..

    Is your 35mm rim from Derby or Lightcycle.. and how do you like it?

    I had that wheelset previously. Don't you feel it a bit "flexy" with such a wide tire?
    Nice wheelset anyway.

    I have only ridden them twice but they appear to be ok. The issue I had initially was the wheels needed to be trued out of the box.

    Anyone having issues with pedal strikes? I see the listed BB drop is 58mm, which seems pretty low, considering my current bike's drop is only 30mm. Maybe someone can measure the BB height (to center of BB, but please note if it is taken with the fork sagged or unsagged).

    I just measured 12 9/16" BB height. Thats with a Pike 130 unsagged, Smorgasbord 2.25 rear tire, DHR2 2.3 on the front and a ZS headset. I have both the Pike 130 and a Fox 34 - 120 both of which measure within a millimeter of each other for axle to crown.

    FWIW - I don't have pedal strike issues running 175 cranks and shimano xt clips.

    Thanks for the specs! That's about 5/8" lower than my current hardtail unsagged. Hope its not too low for the roots around here. You have a ZS headset? I thought the Parkwood uses an IS (drop in) headset.

    Parkwood

    I have the drop in fsa headset recommended for the frame. I said ZS above just to indicate that the headset did not add any dimension to the stack of the crown and head tube area.

    I ride the bike around very rooty east coast trails and don't have any issues.
