Does anyone have the On One Carbon Monocoque Fork?
I’m currently using their CroMo fork and I absolutely love it! I’m tempted by the Carbon Monocoque because I’ll lose about 500grams off the weight. My big worry is how flexy it will be- the reason why I like the CroMo forks so much is how stiff they are. Does anyone have any experience of both? What do people think?Posted 4 years agoslowjoMember
I had one…..but never fitted it. Sold it to some German chap off here. He emailed me back and said it was wonderful.
I guess they are stiffer than the old skool style carbon fork. I am running some of these on my Swift and love them to bits.
Not sure if that is any help.
If you are fitting them to a 29er, the general opinion seems to be that they are a bit low (a to c). I’d have thought they’d be fine for a 26 inch wheel but that’s an assumption only.Posted 4 years agoToastyMember
That looks like the Race ones, which came with the Race frames. Pretty sure those ones were different to the ones they released at the same time as the Lurcher.
Could be wrong.
Rubbish choice of decent carbon rigid forks for mountain bikes. After a tapered set, there’s On-One, Pro (for £300 odd), Kinesis (with too long legs for me), Niner (which don’t actually seem to be selling from anywhere this year?) or not a lot else.
Loads of random brands doing non-tapered jobbies, Ritchey, Synchros etc.Posted 4 years ago
Thanks- it’s a straight steerer that I’m after!Posted 4 years ago
The a to c would be fine- currently running 440mm with a 29er wheel and it definitely works for me.
I’ve read that review- thanks avdave2! It looks like the race is the same fork, although the offset is slightly different. It does seem to be the only review though…ToastyMember
Stif have the (frantically expensive) Niner TA fork in orange.
Yeah, they used to stock loads, so did Charlie. I wonder if there’s supplier issues.
The race fork looks the same, as far as I know it was made in a more expensive factory. Same with the Race frame, which was quite a bit lighter than a Lurcher.
What frame is it out of curiosity? 440mm is quite short for a 29er rigid fork. Making a 69er?Posted 4 years agospidersexualMember
X lite do a 15mm version in two lengths.
I am lucky to have the niner rdo fitted to a dirtyharry frame and they are perfect combo.
Niner is far superior to the xlite in stiffness, lightness And. Comfortableness 😉
You really do get what you pay for with the niner rdo,Posted 4 years ago
