- Lets see your On One Fatty chassis builds.
Will I get much of a fat bike effect with those On One Chunky Monkey tyres?Posted 4 years ago
My parents live near some big dunes (Braunton Burrows) and I’ve always ridden the land rover tracks. I would just love to head in a straight line to the beach then do all of Saunton Sands without sinking in.
I got the original ones from an MTBR forum member years back however they are on ebay.
The ones I had were really good quality, not sure about these ebay ones though. Worth a punt. 🙂Posted 4 years ago
Thanks, Don’t ask for close up pics though 😆
Why are you all drilling the rims/why don’t they come pre-drilled?
The on one rims dont come drilled. Drilling them sheds a little weight. If I wanted a new set of drilled rims on hope hubs I’m looking at £600. £10 for a drill bit 😀Posted 4 years agoImabigkidnowSubscriber
Surely the same as any other tyre.
My two pref ways are:
lots of Fairy, then marginal over-inflation and leave for a while, then maybe the following in addition.
Pump up to a reasonable (mid range) working pressure and properly grabbing out the bead where it needs to be.
Bead needs to come out at one point .. make it 12 o clock but facing away from you.
Palms over the tyre then pinch in and pull up the bead with your fingertips two handed, like your massaging the bead out with your fingers
one foot over the tyre at 6 o clock may help with leverage.
Could just be guff molding .. have you checked ‘that line’ marking the bead is giving a consistant margin around the rim?Posted 4 years agonotmyrealnameSubscriber
I had trouble seating the tyres as well. Following a thread on MTBR about Fatty tyres I ended up spraying the beads and the rim with silicone spray then fitting the tyre and inflating to about 25psi. I had the usual pops and cracks you get when a tubeless tyres goes onto a rim then deflated the tyre to 8psi.Posted 4 years ago
Just one question- how do you seat the tyre correctly.
I had issues seating my tyres and in the end used some Morrison’s head to toe baby wash (shower gel)I pumped them up to about 25psi and they seated ok. I have to re-do the back tyre, I put it on the wrong way round 😕Posted 4 years agoletmetalktomarkSubscriber
Bit of a thread resurrection but …..
I’m drawn to the fat side and am contemplating a chassis build.
Couple of questions …..
➡ The frames look to be (from the geometry charts) quite short in the TT.
How are the taller riders finding the frames? I would want to run my Reverb so no chance of using a sneaky layback post 🙁
➡ For those that drilled their rims …. Was the faff worth it for the weight reduction?
➡ Finally any quick, cheap cheats to loos a bit of weight? Lightweight freeride tubes?Posted 4 years ago
