Has anyone actually pre-ordered an O-O fat bike yet?
You do realise that this is the end of the fat bike phenomena!Posted 5 years ago
Now that you can buy a ready to ride bike in the UK at a good price by just clicking on ‘buy’ all the nichers will move on to some new exotic form of the humble bicycle. As soon as there is a chance of seeing another one in the street [ not at anorak gatherings] the buzz is over, finished, dead.
[just kidding folks, I too am suffering Fat Want]
You don’t see the point of pre-ordering?
That is a consideration. If there is no snow, I can see a £899 ‘special never to be repeated offer’ in January!
I don’t want it for snow. I just want something attention seeking that people can look at/laugh/gaze in awe and ask what’s the point, when I nip down the shops 😉Posted 5 years ago
They are selling very well and will all be gone by the time they’re here at this rate. Especially considering we haven’t done any announcement other than twitter and facebook. And a banner on the site.
So we’re delighted.
Rolling chassis will be an option at some point, as will frame and wheels and tyres and fork, but initially it’s complete’s only.Posted 5 years ago
Looked at the Krampus but for me at least, having built a 1/2 fat previously, it’s a bit too much of a compromise. Does look like fun though and I think it would be a cracking ‘do-a-lot-of-things’ bike!

Excellent, ASAP please.Posted 5 years agomattbibbingsMember
If I had a spare grand kicking about (i wish) I’d be on it like a fat dog in a butchers bin.
It looks so wrong but I just can’t kick the idea that it would feel so right. I too thought about the weight – for about a second = if you are worried about how much these things weighh you shouldn’t be even thinking about them!Posted 5 years agomrbelowski wrote:
I think it looks ace and would love to have one. It’d be perfect for snowy night rides. Are fatties better in the winter mud too?
Oh, and how much do (approx) these weigh?
Mud? It depends on the type of mud. You’ll “float” over some stuff a thinner tyre will bog down in. However, a thinner tyre might also cut through a thinner layer of mud to a harder surface below and gain more traction that way. Generally, the fat tyre will keep rolling if you have enough momentum and you won’t get so many “over the bars” moments.
Weight? My 9:ZERO:7 weighs 31 lbs. Folk are getting them to less than that with fewer gears and lighter weight components. So – not weeny-light, but not ridiculously heavy either. I’ve not yet seen a weight for a complete On One.Posted 5 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
I was surprised how light the Krampus felt when I picked up the one at the NEC a few weeks ago. I’d struggle to justify a full fat bike, but I can’t wait to try a Krampus out. For how/when/where I ride the concept sounds spot on. Been running my rigid Niner on 2.4 Ralphs at down to 25psi & I like it.Posted 5 years agosinglecrackMember
I was going to press the buy button……but not sure now as the lack of single speed and if you want more than 10 gears no front mech fitment …also not sure the lack of chain retention device is a good thing ….as I run just one gear up front on my other bikes and always need on ………Posted 5 years ago
