    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!

    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.

    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

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?

    ^^I think short stem is the way to go on this one. (i've got a 40mm on mine)

    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.
