    Parkwood

    Anyone know what's with the dropped top tube?

    A lot of people need the longer seat tube fit, 18" and up. More overlap at the head tube is always a good thing, I like the TT.. when is this thing due?

    29'ers hold no real interest for me but that is a very nice looking frame

    If so, that's a shame to see the Scandal go away. I know that there is a market for more slack 29ers, so props to On-One for filling the niche. Perhaps I will have to ride this style of bike first, but I was hoping for a Scandal/Inbred geometry bike with a much better swapout system and possibly a split for belt capabilities.

    The swap out system they've been using looks OK, IMHO. It's not that much different in execution to the one Surly have just adopted.

    I think a Inbred with a 44mm HT is a bigger priority than belt drives, but as this is a company that appears to operate at the whim of He Who Appears When Named Three Times On A Thread On STW, you never know...

    Looks can be deceiving as real world execution is entirely different! Quite a few people had to undertake a whole lot of hand grinding to relieve the brake side horizontal drop out to make it even fit the frame it was designed for. Then if you run a very tall gear, you will put out a lot of torque and have to run a pair of add-on tensioners to keep the wheel from slipping sideways on hard climbs. Anyway, sorry to derail the Parkwood discussion...

    Parkwood?

    Second the HT comment, 65 like the 450b rides the way I prefer.. honestly only have one small gripe on that one. Great frame

    This is frickintastic! Just what I've been looking for--a light, trail 29er HT. The angles look awesome. And a Reverb dropper as standard? Insane!

    Glad you like it sir.
    We have been working hard on this for the last year, and we're really pleased with what we can offer for a grand now :-)

    the details table of the parkwood says: 'Integrated tapered headset for a clean, low front end'
    does that mean that this frame will need drop-in style integrated headset or is it only a misspelling and semi-integrated headset will be used?

    I wonder why On-One chose the slightly longer chainstay versus the possible option of a 415 or 420mm chainstay. Was the shorter chainstay too loopy?

    Other than that little quibble everything else looks great. Paint choices, weight, price, all excellent.

    435mm rides great and an FD fits well.

    Have you ridden the bike with a 100mm fork?

    Brant - why an integrated headset instead of zs and/or ec? To be honest, having the headset integrated is what's keeping me off from this new frame

    (why not release a new version that uses cups?)

    Couple things that are stopping me:
    1- 1 water bottle cage
    2- weight is a little beefy
    3- I do not want a 120mm fork and there is not a 100mm recomendation
    4- no SS

    IIRC it's a bit lighter than the yelli screamy. Bottle cage is not a requirement for me since I carry a hydration pack. Still skeptical of the headset... I don't know. It's still bang for the buck compared to YS.

    What's your height and what size did you get?

    Is there still clearance in your rear assuming an FD will be installed?

    I got mine built up. some confusion on the rear rotor; the specs say 180 post to post, but after shiming up 10mm I realized its supposed to be 160. I was worried the aluminum was going to be harsh, but I can't say that was the case. Climbs better than I would of guessed. \
    6 feet and I went with a L.

    I got my new toy built today. First 20km I noticed the bike is funny and fast (even xc-fast). I come from Kona Taro frame (16", was too small for me) and I really prefer Parkwood.

    Here is the build specs - 11,7kg with pedals. Wheels are Hope/DT Comp/Flow EX, tyres Specialized Ground Control 2,3", SLX brakes and cheapish aluminium seatpost and handlebar. FSA cranks, N/W chainring, Shimano ZEE gears, Revelation 140mm fork, Spider saddle, stem 60mm.

    Size M - rider 172cm/84cm inseam (got long legs and arms versus torso) Saddle height 74cm from center of bottom bracket to top of saddle.

    COOL, so the Parkwood can accommodate a 140mm fork? Had thought it was limited to just 120mm.

    I had though it was optimized, no limited.

    Little longer chainstay makes the bike bit more stable versus Taro and bit forward geometry gives steering super sharp feel even with 140mm fork - this makes the bike just downhill beast. What the strangest thing, this machine feels good even uphill and xc-type bombing. I´m happy.
