I am just having a bit of a debate with myself as to whether i should keep my On One 456 Summer Season or Swap for an '09 Santa Cruz Chameleon.
A mate rode my 456 the other day and fell in love with the frame, he loves steel...as do I. But, is this a deal that is too good to pass up on? His frame is mint condition and the same size (18") however it does feel a tad shorter.
The on-one doesn't owe me a lot and is in good condition so is it worth the swap? Id have to buy a couple bits as the post size is different etc but thats all pretty low cost really.
As for set up, i run 150mm Marz' Z1 FR with ETA that i lock down most of the time, i just let them out on the downs...this makes the On-One hella slack. I think they may go better on the SC to be honest. The rest of the kit is whatever was in the shed...its a budget build! 2x9 drive with a bash and Blackspire Stinger, 26'' wheels. Its used for 'seat up' riding as i have a DH hardtail and a full bouncer. This is my bike for 'riding' if that makes sense, no pushing up hills allowed! I ride mostly trails in the local woods, pretty tame type trail or enduro stuff that does get 'downhilly' with small jumps in places.
So opinions please chaps, im not looking to sell the SC on or anything but it could potentially be a nice upgrade if you think it will ride as nice as the on-one.
