    Surly, On One, Rockwerks advice

    I've been singlespeeding for a few years now but am about to build a dedicated bike. I've narrowed it down to two frames: Surly Karate Monkey, and On One's Inbred 29er with sliding dropouts.

    I'm also weighing the options for the rear hub. I'm looking at Surly's disc hub, and the Rockwerks cassette single disc hub. I guess it's the cassette vs freewheel debate.

    Does anyone have any feelings/advice for these frames and hubs I'm considering? I'm trying to keep overall price down, but don't want complete junk either.

    Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    The On-One is cool. I've been riding one for a couple weeks, geared tho. I like the gusseting, the stays/fork design, and overall I think it's a way more interesting way to build a bike than the Surly. I think www.redstonecyclery.com still has one in stock. Might still have a gold 26'er too.
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    You might want to check out the 29er board on here too.

    I have never rode the on one, but I did like the monkey that I rode.
