    Nice looking hardtails. I found this link at the bottom - Brant Richards returns to On One.

    What's interesting about it, nothing new there, the Paradox came out with about those numbers over 2 years ago, just about when they were "thinking" about it and then the Yelli and a good few in between then and even before then All they are doing is following, but at least they're not following old school geo and have gone below 70* HA. Chainstays certainly don't look to have any real clearance, not if mud is factored in - wonder if it'd even have clearance for a 2.4"Ardent not even taking mud into consideration?

    Just one guy's opinion, but On-One hasn't been the same without him.

    Not so new in geometry specs, but new in carbon! Is there anyone else offering a slack HA and short CS in carbon?

    Strange that the quotes from Whyte's designer indicate his ignorance of the fact that his geo is approach is nothing new. Perhaps he lacks an Internet connection?

    “There are one or two people at 69.5° for a 29er, we’re at 69.25°.”

    A 1/4 degree is the difference between running a 2.2 or a 2.4 up front.
    So it's nothing revolutionary, but more options are good.
