    On-One Superlight 440mm fork impressions

    Looking to pick one of these forks up to complete my sliding drop out Inbred. Anyone riding one? Are they harsh, smooth? Will a 29"er wheel fit with discs? Any comments appreciated.

    Thanks,

    MC

    I like mine just fine. I run it on a 26er in place of an 80mm fork. 430mm would have been perfect but I only notice the extra 10mm on climbs when I have the trail-a-bike on the back or loaded down panniers. Rides real nice and doesn't beat the snot out of me.

    I have the 440mm On One fork on my 26er Inbred. It is not as compliant as I would like, but I weigh only 165lbs. However, I would not call it harsh either.

    I have converted my 26er Inbred to a 69er and the fork fits a 29er wheel with room to spare. The Avid BB7 disk brake also fit perfectly. And on my 16in Inbred frame, there is no toe overlap with the 29er wheel.

    Overall I like the fork a lot and would recommend it.

    Thanks for the responses. Any idea how wide of a tire would fit? Thinking about trying a 2.7 or 3.0 for the winter months when the leaves are thick!

    I think 2.7 would fit, but I never tried it myself. However, the V brakes would interfere with mounting the tire. As for a 3.0, I really don't know.

    I swap between a 26 and 29 front on my Inbred, got a Nokian Gazzaloddi 3.0 on the Superlight fork with no problem.

    Truly a wealth of useless information.
