    What a great bike! You will love the geo. Brant really nailed it with this design! What wheels will you run?

    Depends on my budget, but right now I am thinking Mavic Crossride. At $300 they are a pretty good deal. If I free up some more cash I may look into some Stan's.

    Chainlove has had some WTB tubeless wheelsets in the $250-300 range -- a good bargain. WTB makes great UST rims.

    I'll check it out. I am waiting for On One to get a new shipment of their carbon 29er race forks. They said possibly early May.

    I have essentially that fork on my Lurcher -- so light and strong. It's a great fork at a good price.

    I will put a Reba and gears on for summer/fall riding, and then switch back to rigid SS for next winter.

    XT or SLX (can't remember) with On One 32 ring and bash guard in front. PF92 for the wide Lurcher BB shell.

    Will switch a SRAM 10-speed cassette/der from one of my Inbreds to run 1x10 gears. Maybe even drop to a smaller chainring for the long climbs.

    UPDATE: It's been a slow process, but it is moving. I purchased from ON ONE their seat post, seat post clamp, Smoothie Mixer headset and 70mm stem. I also got the horizontal dropouts. From Jenson I picked up a black Charge Spoon saddle.

    I am actually amazed at all of their products. Very competitively priced and weight.

    The CNC stem is lovely but it is a generic Chinese part as it is the same as the Superstar one and a few others so I don't thing its loveliness is down to On-Ones on this occasion

    I went for th polished silver with a polished On-one bar and Thompson post (from on one for a bargain price)

    Loving my Scandal more and more

    I have definitely bought lower-quality/more expensive stuff at LBS's. Makes me really appreciate the good quality/inexpensive inventory from On One/Planet X. Things that stand out are stems, seat posts, bars and frames/forks.

    I have heard good things about the Xfusion forks. Let me know what you think about it when you get riding. The frame and fork look great!

    Ahh yes, the Chinese connection. Don’t be surprised if they’re the poorly-casted caliper housings that might not last 100,000 miles like the proper $120-per-set (front and rear—calipers/rotors/cables/housings/levers/discs/etc) ones on Blue Sky Cycling.

    LOL, I did the same to my X-Fusion fork the day I got it! The stickers looked cheap IMO.

    Overall, I like the fork. I bought it originally because it had an 80mm option that I thought might come in handy on my Karate Monkey, but I left it at 100mm and haven't had any issues.

    Keep us posted; I am looking into an On One geared hardtail as I will probably be converting the Monkey to SS this fall. My buddy/coworker has the Inbred and loves it, but I'm also considering the Scandal.
