Right, my colleague now likes the look of On-One frames. He is after XC being an ex-roadie, so I think the long top tube will suit. Am I right in thinking the Inbred is the most XC? I know there’s the Scandal which is nice and light but it’s £100 more and cost is a factor.
XC means not Freeride, not DH, not 4x, not dirt jump and no aspirations to be any of those things either. It means riding in a loop around a trail and enjoying the ups and downs, rather than trying to challenge yourself on very steep/gnarly descents.
