    I'm looking forward to this bike.

    I've heaps of On-One stuff. Always well designed, always does what it claims on the tin, and always priced right.

    That's my front wheel. It's holding up well, nicer finish and wider tyre profile than the FlatTop 80 I had on there before.

    I've got another rim that I've drilled an intend to build it in to a rear wheel when I find where I put the hub...

    Any more info or pics of the bike shaggy?

    This bike is the reason I have not bought a moonlander..

    What is the final word regarding dropouts & spacing.....oh, and tyres

    Funny, I did spot the rim in this video, but never really twigged it was a new rim

    I've been loving the bike. No geometry changes planned. Just playing with the bike now. Its grown a Moots post (so the carbon one doesn't get killed by my Revelate bag). Perhaps putting 3x9 on it.

    Final specs were almost there. 2nd prototypes were about to be ordered when I had an idea that may change things...

    This bike is the reason I have not bought a moonlander.. or even the frosti from Moots! And no 36er!

    Brant, Shaggy don't forget I am on your built list,april?

    Thanks,

    Going to do the 'Puffer?

    I'm sure they'd take a late entry from you.

    How does the ride compare to say, Pug, or 907...? Is it more lively as a general trail bike than a the other 2?

    What's the final word on rear dropouts? 135mm with sliders ( belt drive compatable would be nice!)
    Also, don't forget about rack mounts!
    Bike looks great BTW

    Perhaps it's just me, but that seems like a really poor choice of placement for carrying your spare cranks




    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    Campag Pista door handle. NDS broke as they tend to do, so had to use it for something

    Final details TBC but it won't be split for a belt drive.

    Looking good! Looks like a bit longer fork than the original. Looks "balanced" & ready for the trail...
