Brant at CRC? Cringeworthy thoughts.Posted 13 years ago
jeez there’s some spiteful arseholes in this community.Posted 13 years ago
It’s not that difficult, really. You might need some experience in using materials, but the most important thing is to find a Taiwanese factory who make tons of stuff for other people, who will do the hard work for you. Maybe get a British frame builder to knock up some prototypes first, give them to a couple of your mates who work for mountain bike magazines, get loads of free publicity, and- bingo!
Well you could do it like that I guess. But, well, anyhow. Never been the way I have.Posted 13 years ago
Given how synonymous on-one and Brant are, surely the better option would have been to sell the former to CRC with the latter staying on as product developnment manager/mouthpiece?
As someone said, no one wants a CRC branded bike, and on-one without Brant is just another bike company?
Makes fek all difference to me anyway, I’ve got a DMR and a Sanderson.Posted 13 years ago

I wouldn’t say it like that, but that isn’t what’s happening anyhow.

Good luck with your move Brant. I’ll bet that involved some sleepless nights!! Well done for all the work you did with On One, I hope your time with CRC is as fruitful. Looking forward to seeing what working with the largest distributor can do for stock, delivery times, and scope for design.
Nice One.Posted 13 years ago

Good luck Brant. IMHO CRC need a good kick up the arse to get them back on top of their game. I hope you can instill some of the dynamism you’ve built around the On One brand into their operation.Posted 13 years ago

The news has vanished from the On One site too. In fact I can’t see Brant’s name mentioned anywhere.
Me thinks there might be something afoot!!!!!!!!!Posted 13 years agobigsiFree Member
Sounds like there could be a Brant Full Susser on the way via CRC.Posted 13 years ago
Hes kept the shed for many years, its almost like Dr Who’s Tardis you see. Have shed, will travel.Posted 13 years agoandrewFree Member
Oh my God! Brant’s on crack??!! I just heard. It explains a lot, mind.Posted 13 years ago
Is it like the Arshavin deal- one minute it’s on, the next, it’s off?
I though Brant was going to sign for Man Shitty, anyway? With Robinho going the other way, to start a new career in bike marketing.Posted 13 years agonukeproofFree Member
In marketing terms its all about as annoying as getting a DVD box set of the complete Iceland adverts with a bonus DVD of the Direct Line commercials.Posted 13 years ago

i mut say i wont miss the abuse he gives out to stw’ers if they voice an opinion about his bikes. Also he’ll have more time in his new role as he wont be trawling the posts on here for ‘on-one’ as a keyword!
who knows i may even consider buying from on-one again now he’s gone.Posted 13 years agodruidhFree Member
Richards is to create a bike and accessories brand for mail-order retailer Chain Reaction Cycles.
“I’m spending the next couple of months either in my shed, or in Taiwan, working hard to get a lovely range of frames and components, for launch under a new brand name in early May. What I’m trying to achieve is that fast route to market, volume purchasing, great margins, all in key areas that the big brands aren’t hitting.
“And if that fails, I’ve got a backup plan of going to sell odd hats and beef jerky.”Posted 13 years ago
where’ve i seen this buiness model before…………………
has inovation realy died a death? will anyone be setting up a company making new stuff rather than hopping over to tiwan to pick bits out of a catalogue and proclaiming that their margins are smaller than the competitions?
TBH its getting a bit reppettative, especialy now that magazines are ful of ads from every man and his dog selling the same pedals/grips/bars/seatpost/etcPosted 13 years ago
I was hoping I would get the 300 but seems the thread has died. 🙁

The On-One stuff wasn’t just catalogue parts though, was it. Unless someone else was having weird handlebars made first and I missed it.Posted 13 years ago
ok, i’ll give them the bars, although they didnt invent them, just look at an old shopper bike.
but hubs/cranks/grips etc etc …………………
I’m not denying they’r reasnoble quality and reasnoble prices,
but theyr still the same DMR/Nukeproof/etc.
Things i’d like to see…….
budget SS casette hub with good quality servicable internals
female axel hubs, not realy neccecary on most bikes, but they look super cool on BMX’s, so why not?
The only new things i can think of from recent years are lock on grips and the new style of taco chain devices. Surely as an industry there must be more new stuff to invent?Posted 13 years ago
The way I read it and from what Brant has said himself recently on here is that Brant still has an interest in on one ie he owns shares but he has given up his job there. If this is correct it is in Brants interest that on one continues to make money. If it is not correct then why would Brant want to see the company he built fail because of his rival frames and parts. I think Shedfire will produce slightly more expensive parts than on one and be a bit more mainstream with maybe higher quality attention to detail.Posted 13 years ago
