- How much is a 2012 On One Scandal 29er Worth
I’m considering flogging my Scandal 29er. 2012 model with Reba forks, Deore 1×10 groupset, on one wheels and rsp plummet dropper. Any idea what would be a sensible price? It’s got obvious signs of use along with 2 really irritating little dents on the top tube from when it fell over in my van. It’s never been crashed though. Prob paid about £1200 to build it back then.
Any sensible advice gratefully received, not definitely going to sell, just testing the waters as it were…Posted 3 months agodamascusMember
8 years old and with dents on. Probably around £200 to £300 if you are lucky depending on condition.
The new Scandal is coming out this year so that reduces the value as there is no reason to buy an old one when a new one with warranty and updated geometry and spec will be around £150-200 for a frame.
I would probably just keep it. Perhaps just update the frame at a later pointPosted 3 months agocpSubscriber
keep the frame.. literally ANYONE who sold a scandal frame (29er Mk2 mainly) instantly regrets it!!
this. Don’t do it.
I’ve still got a small hoard of various dropouts for when I manage to get hold of another frame.
The dents will, unfortunately, put a lot of people off.Posted 3 months agoepicycloSubscriber
Keep the Scandal. The frame isn’t worth much in £sd, but its usability value is high.
Just put your parts on a new frame and hang up the Scandal.
You’ll find plenty uses for it.

This is so true…last year my v2 29er was 1.75″ tyres, flat bar/bar ends and rigid fork but this year its back to 120 fork, dropper and 2.35″ tyres , so versatile 👍
Owned from new and can’t believe frame was £219 iirc…must be 7 years old now 🤔Posted 3 months ago2unfit2rideSubscriber
I still have an original scandium frame that I bought off here 10 years ago, it’s not going anywhere as it’s not worth anything & I love it, haven’t ridden it in a while but built up 10 speed & rigid & just hangs in the garage. I occasionally I steal the nice the bits off it & build up the Singular Pegasus but I prefer the OO to ride although the Pegasus looks prettier even after the repair & that now hangs on my office wall 😉

Yep, On One habitually (well in the old days) designed good frames then inexplicably made them from scaffolding and drainpipes.
Inbred,Pompino etc. They were cheap though.
The Scandal was a rare instance when they made a good frame out of good materials and for a good price.
Deffo keep it.Posted 3 months ago
