    I missed the boat on buying a On One Disc EBB frame so.....

    I'm looking for one... didn't someone a while back post a site that had the geometries listed (so I can try to find the one that fits me the best)??

    Any help?

    Thanks

    Email brant. He doesn't ride and just sits in his torture chamber of an office all day (aka kitchen).

    Should email you back in a minute and a half (average).

    The only bad thing is that they don't make this frame anymore - I want a disc tabbed EBB Inbred... I thought they were in the process of switching to a different style dropout for the disc Inbreds. Didn't want to waste Brant's time if it's something they no longer carry...

    I'm 34" and I ride a 20" so that's probably 18"

    oh no!!!

    i too had been eyeing the ebb disc inbred.
    what exactly is it they're changing - dropout style, you say? are they going vertical, or what?

    I thought they were going with a rear dropout like the new Kona's are using?

    Am I off base here?

    What length cranks do you run? Funny.

    Anyway, I have a 20" EBB Inbred that might be for sale at some point - youngin' pending. Pains me to even think of it (selling a bike that is).

    Posted pics a while back under SS category. Sounds like you want/need something smaller but these frames are long and low - not a square build.

    I was leaning towards an 18" frame if I had to guess right now... but I'm not instantly in the market either right now - just doing my research so that in a few weeks (or 6-8) I know what I'm looking for... if that's what I still want....

    Well I guess it's a long shot but if you're in the UK in the near future I have a 20" Tinbred and an 18" Inbred you could try for fit

    you know we still have 20in EBB frames (steel ones) Freddie?

    The only problem of course is that the dollar is now so ****ed against the pound that our prices are screwy.

    Mail me though and we can work something out I am sure.

    I was in the same boat on the Inbred

    so I went ahead and bought a Planet X Ridgeback. It really doesn't fit the bill so I am ordering a Spicer. Custom built the way you want it, EBB, whatever you want. The price is almost to good to be true. Give him a call.... spicercycles.com

    I already have a custom Ti EBB Disc Spicer - they are nice and Gene is a great guy to work with.... just looking for some variety - I like the Inbred... Brant I think the 20" is just going to be too large... I'll keep saving my money and maybe I'll be able to get a Ti Inbred... no plans on disc the EBB on them right???

    Thanks

    "Idon't think he'd be very keen.
    You see, he's already got one."

    Not 100% sure of the quote, sorry just looking to help. I wish I had your problem of adding to a collection of singlespeeds. I really had my heart set on an On-One back in November. I was truly bummed.

    We're going to be replacing the ti ebb frame with a sliding dropout version. It's just we've still got stock of the ti ebb frames in all sizes.

    Nothing inherently WRONG with the EBB's by the way, it's just that I like keeping things the same, and the cost of the EBB unit was pushing up the price of the steel frame a lot (proportionally) and also the complications of dealing with Bushnell in the US and our builders in Taiwan was getting fiddly.

    I could move to a set-screw design out of Taiwan, but I didn't want to, and the sliding dropout thing looks good, and we can shed some weight too.

    Any of that help?

    I really want one of the new sliding dropout frames (note want, not need but I'm not sure I can justify it.

    i am so flattered!

    sliding drop-outs would be so neato. i like that idea much more than EBBs. looks cleaner, looks likes it'd be cheaper to buy, and...well, that's all that comes to mind right now.

    can i change topics real quick to save myself an e-mail to Brant?
    - Brant, are there any differences between the PX Knifen forks and the On-One forks? i've got a 400mm Knifen on my Imperial momentarily ( http://webspace.utexas.edu/barriedb/...y/133_3346.jpg [big pic]) and am just curious.

    The on-one forks are around half the weight of the knifens (significantly thinner wall tubing).

    The Planet X "Superlight" fork is the same as the on-one Superlight fork. Also, the newer versions of the on-one fork (and the current Superlight PX fork) have forward angled dropouts and reinforced disc mounts and replaceable brake bosses.
