I had one, it was nicked..Posted 4 years ago
Great bike, converted me to 29ers.
Pretty rigid, but not the worst I have been on. Lightish, well finished , some nice details.
I had the mk1 Reba’s with qr on, and they were far too flexy.
I’ve got a One9 which I believe is the same geometry, run it as a rigid singlespeed and really like it. I don’t think you can forks longer than 100mm so it’s never going to be a LT HT but I’ve taken mine over gatesgarth, nan bield etc with no ill effects so it would easily make a nice light trail bike.Posted 4 years agobikebouyMember
So, my One9 is powder blue scandium and fitted to be as light as reasonably possible. It rides really nice and I have covered some pretty bumpy terrain on it including such trails like Stainburn and Nidderdale Loop and all sorts of South Coast trail hunting. Raced it too, done SSUK events on it etc. and it’s been one of the most reliable and fun bikes I’ve owned. Fitted with Niners matching carbon rigid forks, Niner carbon bars/stem, SRAM Xo, Stans etc. (though going carbon sometime this year)Posted 4 years ago
Light, flicky, fast, comfortable, grin inducing.. not a lot else to say really.
Glad you bought one, post pics when done. Mines posted on here a number of times in threads like the QECP Conditions and MTG’s Post a Pic of yer bike near/on/doing threads he used to run..
