    Attn On One owners.

    Seems to me this is what I'm gonna end up buying.

    Can you give some info on it? Anything you think about the bike will be appreciated. Pics will be uber nice, too.

    Thanks.

    had one of the early DN6 steel ones to make it state-side. loved the bike! good all arond SS with nothing to gripe about. the segmented fork is pretty sweet as well. had it built with a psylo up front, which added to the fun. 80mm locked for climbing? no problem. 125 and all choppered? also not an issue. the bike seemend to have zero issue with all of that.

    no recent pics- its gone from me to meatfoot to ??? up in oregon.

    Great! Charge the 'other battery' and give me a review, eh?

    I'm waiting for the 29" wheeled version. Latest news is that it should be available early spring, larger sizes only, sliding dropouts, otherwise the same as a regular inbred.

    You might be waiting a while, Kolo. I asked about the Inbred 29er yesterday, and Brant, as usual, was very forthcoming about the progress - or lack thereof - on the 29er.

    Sizes?

    Can any of you give me some advice on sizing the inbred?

    I am 6' tall with a 33" inseam. I know the top tubes run long on the frames. I was wondering if the 20" would be too big for me. My current frame (which I use because it is what I have not because it was fitted properly) is a 19" Trek 930. I think the top tube on the 930 is about 23-23.5" long.


    Thanks for any advice.

    i'm your size and i ride the medium one. it looks small, but it feels good when i'm on it. then again, i like a smaller frame, rather than a larger.

    Thanks. The reason I ask is because I may replace my geared bike's frame, and I found a 20" geared inbred frame for a reasonable price.

    I guess the bigger issue is that I have just begun single speeding, and my geared bike has not seen much use recently.

    Thanks again

    I'm 6'1" with a 34" pubic bone height (32" -33" inseam) and I ride a 20" frame and it feels fine. Ask Brant, but I would think either the medium or large would fit you okay. BTW, there is a ton of standover on the large.

    What's the deal with the P2 on that thing. My favorite part on Brant's bikes are the forks.
    I am looking to go rigid, maybe I should look into getting an On-One. Any one have comments on the On One fork?

    Thanks for the info.

    I will ask him if I decide to go ahead with the purchase. I am not buying from him directly, so I did not want to bother him with questions.

    Wow - the one with the On-one fork on it looks hot - as does the one with the Manitou Minute on it too!

    I'll have to keep my eyes out for these frames on Ebay and the classifieds then.

    16" frame for a 5'9" guy with a 30" inseam you think?

    Works for me w/ the same measurements... The long top tube is definitely noticeable, though. I'm running an 85mm stem and might go a bit shorter (75mm?). My seatpost is at almost max height (~280mm from top of seat tube to rails).

    I have the on-one rigid fork, but actually have switched back to my Skareb. I have ****e elbows that can only handle the rigid fork on an infrequent basis.

    That's how I got my Inbred. Same seller, etc. I thought it was a good deal...

    Did I imagine it or is/was the Inbred available in a 14" size as well? Or is 16" the smallest is comes in? Standover on a 16" frame looks like it's plenty for my 5'4" height, but I gotta wonder if that effective top tube length is a bit much for my stature. Wonder if that can be offset with a seriously short stem, I think I have one that's around 60mm or so.

    Current owners? Brant?

    Greenfix,

    First, I am really in love with this bike... coming off of a FS to the Steel Hardtail I was nervous but with tubeless tires, the Marzocchi up front, and the sweet ride of the DN6 steel I've been amazed at how plush this bike is... Now, it's no FS LazyBoy, but it really just glides on the the trail...

    Second, I'm really close to your sizing... 6 ft. tall with 34 inch inseam. I picked the 20" and went against Brent suggestions and kept my stem relatively long at 110mm... The ride is nice and stretched but not to far. My back is just at the point of flattening out like it's supposed to and I'm not scrunched at all.

    Third, If you want more of the details I posted this link a while back with all of my build and first review... Ready... Set... Go!!!

    Cool! Hopefully you'll be "On One" soon!

    Tony.

    Inbreeding

    (Spin) There is a 14" available (I've seen it on Webcylcery's site). I just got one through Team Planet-X a few months ago so it's a DN6 steel frame, and it rocks. I ride a 16" with short 75mm stem and 100mm fork and I love the geometry. I think it's gonna last me a good long time. Reminds me of my retired Kona, except with even more standover clearance.

    A great choice I think. But then again, I'm biased.

    FWIW,
    I'm 5'4" as well and I ride the 14" with an 80mm stem and I'm really comfortable on it.

    P2 & sizing

    I got the bike from an MTBR classified a couple of years ago -- the guy didn't have the the on*one fork (he had a squishy -- he knocked off a few bucks to keep it)

    I got the P2 because it was available cheap at the LBS.
    I agree that the on*one fork looks great and had considered buying one -- but it turns out the P2 is quite nice (no "chatter" like some curve blade rigid forks), and very lightweight.
    I'd put a P2 on any hardtail. I gather the on*one fork is a similar ride, just heavier.

    As for size: I'm 5-9, 32"inseam -- could have gone for either the 16 or 18.
    Went for the 16, requiring a 400mm seatpost.
    Fits well, but I bet I would say the same about the 18 with a slightly shorter stem.

    Thanks Tony,

    I read your other thread. It looks like a really nice build. Its nice to hear the frame is working out for you. I have been as frequent visitor to the On-One page, and I have read some great things about the Inbred. I will definitely post the bike here if I end up picking up the frame.

    Cheers

    No MTBR listing?

    I noticed that On-one does not have a MTBR listing when you search for reviews on their products. Any ideas why? Does it cost on-one money to get up on there? It is no big deal because this post has been a great source of information, but I was a little surprised when I couldn't find reviews on the site.

    That's another SS'er that likes the P2. Maybe I should give up on all the high zoot forks and just get a P2 for my ride? Light too? I like that. Thanks for the info hilljack.

    I tried to get a listing there about four years ago when we were starting out (we've been around almost exactly five years now).

    But I couldn't work out how, and nobody has picked us up since.
