- 140 pikes on a scandal
i've just bought an on one scandal, if i put my pikes on will there be any adverse effects?Posted 10 years ago
IMO the forks will do no favours.
heavy and a bit too long – kinda depends what you just took the pikes off, and how you liked thatPosted 10 years agotheboatmanMember
Seems an strange frame to buy if you were wanting to put pikes on it. I thought the scandal was sold as a light weight wheels on the ground racer that would take forks from 80-130mm. I think I would have gone for the 456 to match the pikes. Not sure how your warrenty would stand if you were running the forks at 140mm. I'm not one to get fussed over how much an extra 10mm of travel would effect handling, but just seems an odd combo to go for.Posted 10 years ago
will 10 mm make that much difference? i'm not a pro it's just for messing about on in the woods and keeping fit!Posted 10 years ago
it's not the 10mm difference, they're 'concerned' about, but the weight of the pikes on what is a lightweight race type frame.
Is ithe scandAL a 18"?Posted 10 years ago
If it is, sell it me and buy a One-one 456 to match the pikes.
yeah it 18" inch but not for sale 😀 i'm not to concerned about the weight ov it but even still it'll be lighter than a 456 anywayPosted 10 years ago
if you are happy enough to ignore the slight steering and front end height changes, which you could balance with stem, stack adjustments AND you accept that the increased fork length could potentially rip the head tube clean off…….
go for it, you will end up with a light quick direct frame with a fork that you can plow through pretty much anything – and that sounds like fun.Posted 10 years agojfebMember
I have a Scandal albeit in 29er flavour. I know what On-One describe it as their wheels-on-the-ground-racy-frame but it seems perfectly capable as a more all-round frame.
Have their been any frame failures?
I suspect Pikes on a Scandal will be great fun 🙂Posted 10 years agoKINGTUTMember
The scandal is an XC frame, it's sweet spot is around 100mm if you've bought it to put Pikes on it, IMO you've bought the wrong frame.Posted 10 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
I ran my Scandal with 130mm revs, tbh I didn't think it worked very well with the longer forks- it didn't break or anything but it always felt a bit out of its comfort zone, comparing the handling with my Soul made it look very bad tbh. Certainly would never have considered going longer.Posted 10 years ago
cheers for your advice,i usually run the forks at 120mm unless i'm playing about, i'm not convinced the extra 10 mm will "rip the head tube clean off" as i'm only 12 stone surely heavier riders don't snap their frames!Posted 10 years ago
sell it and buy a Ragley mmmbop.
basicly an aluminium 456 i think.Posted 10 years ago
designed to take pikes
