    On-one fat bike proto by Shaggy John, on Flickr

    Built now, the first ride was good. Second ride was by some bloke I met at the pub. He says its “amazing”. So it must be true.

    Room for the BFL on an 80mm rim in the rear?

    Heh at the Jones touches.

    Would be cool to see more affordable fat stuff.

    This one has 123mm tyre clearance so just enough for a BFL on a hundy, should be plenty on a 80. This and other things may well get tweeked before production.

    With a full set of gears?

    or a Torker.

    Stu: No. granny ring won’t work, perhaps not the top few sprockets. I’m going to talk to Ison about getting some BFLs and Clown Shoes so I can say for sure.

    Please excuse my ignorance, but what is all this Fat bike thing about?

    Will it be out by Xmas?

    Would On-One be able to economically source their own tyres ? (hint hint)

    just out of interest can you get a rohlof to fit a fat bike with the threaded axle version (TS?) therefore negating some of the gearing tyre overlap issues?

    Let’s hope they listen to you more than the rest of us that have been on to them about their lack of interest in bringing fat stuff in.

    A couple of us have just ordered a few Nates in from the states as we don’t want to wait until next summer to try them out.

    Be interested to see how the On One rides though.

    Girth.

    Long and thin,
    won’t go in,
    short and thick,
    dose the trick.

    Stu – Where’s best for USA Nate order- Thanks.

    I just emailed Pat at Ison about tyres. He’s been at Eurobike but I’ll talk to him when he gets back. To be fair to them fat tyres are still a very small market. It must be a pain trying to second guess what to stock.

    Yay! Another fugly, pointless for almost all riding niche stroker wagon!

    CFH, you clearly know nothing then as this one of Shaggys will more than likely be used for its true purpose than all the others on here and a dam sight faster too!

    Oh, don’t get me wrong, for those occasions where a fat bike makes sense, they make excellent sense. Hence, “pointless for almost all riding”.

    Still I’ll leave the niche-fanbois to frott themselves senseless over it.

    Bit like you riding your MBR best seller must have trail sensation killer down Brechfa blue then.

    Don’t worry CFH I have plans to use this in anger in the correct enviroment. Just because it’s niche doesn’t mean there isn’t a point for it.

    I’m loving this, keep it up fat brothers.

    So no different to a 6″ full sus / fully rigid s.s. / jump bike e.t.c which each have their strengths and weakness, but really most of the time there particular deviations away from a “standard bike” are not needed.

    now I’m guessing lots of these will want to be ssed, those aren’t just vertical dropouts are they ?

    They are needed if this sort of riding is on your doorstep.

    Dropouts are on-one swap outs, so will take SS or geared.

    Premier Icon JohnClimber

    With tyres like this and soft sand you (well I do) really need some gears, I wouldn’t consider SS’ing my Fat Bike.
