Seems an awful lot for a rigid bike to me.

I could build a far slinkier, lighter 29er for a lots less.
nice to see string and glue bikes are making it through to budget bike companies like on one
EDIT are you sure they don’t mean £499.00? no one in their right mind would spend that much for such a gopping swamp donkeyPosted 6 years agoroadiebiker-m.gMember
Even myself (who hasnt spent >£1000 on a complete bike) can say that looks like a pile of crap (for £5000 at least). I have one of the forks, branded by a different OEM company, people are exporting the forks for £60/piece, and if thats anything to go by the frame’s probably only worth £300.Posted 6 years agoashfanmanMember
Perhaps £1999, given the full SRAM XX build.
In fairness, a full XX groupset is about £1,500. And this isn’t even full XX – they’ve fitted some stupidly expensive FRM cranks. That’ll be €500 for those, with the chainrings. And another €400 for the forks, €145 for the bars, €100 for the post and €114 for the stem.
It also has On-One’s carbon wheelset, which is £799, so it probably isn’t that much more overpriced than most bikes.
That said, it’s still a £5,000 On-One, which is just wronnnng.Posted 6 years agoroadiebiker-m.gMember
Dont pay with a debit card. Use a credit card, they have a bad reputation. Ive always received what i paid for. Else get them of ebay search hylix forks, they are more expensive but quite bonofidePosted 6 years agotazzymtbMember
The ugliest bike and one of the prettiest bikes ever have both been posted in this thread
it’s a bit like comparing dita von tease- curvy in all the right places, elegant and looks amazing fun to ride with jordan – hideous plastic monstrosity that’s cheap and nasty but is trying to have a high class price tag and will probably explode in a cloud of sharp plastic fibres and savage your crotchPosted 6 years agoaracerSubscriber
As somebody who’s spent getting on for that much on a bike (more than once 😳 ), doesn’t think there’s anything wrong with spending serious amounts of money on an On-One, and doesn’t think there’s that much wrong with that bike…
it still seems incredibly overpriced.Posted 6 years agomunrobikerMember

To MUNROBIKER! – that specialised race bike for £12 grand is what you would pay for a full blooded motorbike, utter nonsense. Saw a £10 grand Stork a couple of years back and it weighed so little you couldn’t race it under UCI rules – totally pointless. Give you/me half the cash and we can spend it on something “proper” – or as Mr B Sheene once said, “I spent it all on girls, booze and having a good time, the rest I wasted!”Posted 6 years agowwaswasSubscriber

I thought it was George Best?
re: UCI rules – how many people who aren’t sponsored to ride a specific bike anyway need to worry about this? Some people just like having the best/lightest/etc it’s not always an entirely rational decision, is it, but it doesn’t make them wrong.Posted 6 years agonjee20Subscriber

It’s only the McLaren edition, which is hand made by them. The ‘normal’ S-Works Venge is far far more sensibly priced (at least in the context of top end road bikes). How much do you pay for an MP4-12C? Makes that bike look rather good value…

Most road bikes over about £4000 are under 6.8kg, it’s very easy to achieve these days. That’s not the point though, there are either bikes like the Venge which are more aero than 10 year old TT bikes whilst being bang on the weight limit, or there are proper mental light bikes which totally flount the weight limit, and that’s the point!Posted 6 years ago
