    on-one sliding or soma horizontal

    I am making a choice between an on-one inbred 29er or a soma juice. It will be ss.I have a on-one 26er ss and the sliding dropout work great. I however like the way the soma frame looks better but a little apprehensive of horitzontal drop outs. They look more problematic but have not had any experience with them. Any thought about this pros and cons of these two systems and/or pros and cons of the frames in general. I will be putting a reba on my choice.I did not get much response to this dilemma in the 29er forum, thought maybe yall would be more responsive. FullFaced Z

    Both...

    work fine. One just takes longer to change the wheel, thats all. I have a On-One Inbred 26" with sliding dropouts and a Spot Brand with the horizontial disk brake drop out. The Spot horizontials work just fine, you just have to retension the chain each time. I find using a chain tug helps speed this process up greatly. When ever I need to change a flat I just undo the bolt on the drive side enought to make the tensioner go free. Then the wheel will slide forward easily so you can take the chain off and pull the wheel out the back. If your a racer and real concerned about the time it takes to change a flat the On-One would be the clear winner, otherwise go with your heart.

    Post pics of which ever you build!

    Thanks

    Thanks, your post was helpful. I am leaning toward the on-one pretty heavily. My brother said/read something about the soma needing a spacer or special headset for the reba. I am going toward simplicity and the reliablity I have already experienced with the on-one. I just wish it wasn't so white. thanks
