If so whats the verdict? they get some pretty rave reviews & its time i treat myself.
Anyone ridden a PYGA Oneten29?
They look pretty tidy, both in 650b and 29er format. Wouldn't say no to a go on one.
Don't know of any in the wild yet, so no user reviews. No ISCG tabs, but pressfit BB might be a minor oversight (from pics the German dealer posted elsewhere - maybe retail ones differ?).
Yes I've got one
I have Hope press fit bb fitted so hope it's gonna last, also don't see the need for ISCG tabs as I have clutch type rear mech
Just getting to grips with it as have only rode it around 5-6 times, my other bike is a Cotic Solaris
Feels a little like my old Turner 5 Spot and Flux but with bigger wheels. On tight Singletrack it turns very well and on corners and rooty sections is very planted.
Only done a few rocky sections and TBH it rolled them like they weren't there, very quick. I have found it impossible to bottom out the rear (30% sag) though have used up all the front travel
I also test rode the following bikes
Cube 120 29 summin
Fave out of those was the Whyte and the Orange
look lovely in the flesh as well - saw a new one delivered today - would have been tempted if i had not just got a 5 spot r53 was nice to meet you at cyclopedia today - when Mark and Patrics make a carbon 650b i promise i will take a very good look
Hey Makkag. Good to meet you too. The Carbon 650b will be with us around August/September time. I'll hold you to that!
Craig, Marcus here, please don't tell me there's gonna be a carbon 11029.
Haha Marcus. No not as far as I'm aware. I'm talking about a Carbon 650B hardtail called the Zero650C.
r53 or others-does the oneten29 have ISCG tabs or not? I read in a couple of reviews that it has but all the specs and pictures suggest not...
@groundskeeperwilly the OneTen29 does not have ISCG tabs. The review you have read is of the very original prototype. C-Sixx do an adaptor that can be fitted to the frame to allow you to use ISCG mountings.
One of these:
I hope that clears it up.
Thanks r53. Any idea how much it costs or if it is ready to buy-don't see that info anywhere...
Are ISCG mounted chain devices needed these days with the introduction of clutch mechs?
maybe they are, i'm no expert..
Sorry. we aren't the C-Sixx importer. Try Steve at C-Sixx on 01799 516441. That facebook page is run by the guys at C-Sixx head office in South Africa (they are tied in with Pyga which is how I know about it).
As frankers says though, with a clutch rear mech they aren't always needed although some still like the security.
Yeah I do run a type 2 mech but have found on occasion that the chain guide has saved a few drops. Also the guide I run has a neat little semi-bash type thing to protect the chainring too which I like.
