On One Scandal sizing
I’m looking at getting a Scandal frame, normally I take a 19.5″ frame, but none in stock at On One so looking at the geometry I’m judging whether a 21″ frame will be ok.
Much of my riding is XC so I don’t need a “flickable” frame as such.
Anyone run a 21″ frame? How do they size up.
I’m 6′ and 32″ inside leg so just on the edge of the On One sizing guide.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I have a 19.5, i’m 6 foot with a 33″ inside leg.
it’s plenty long enough for me, currently running it with an 80mm stem, for XC riding and a bit of racing.
You may be able to get away with it- run a short stem, and they are quite long and low, so there should still be some standover..? Big wheels and a slightly big frame might add up to a proper gate though…!Posted 4 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
FWIW every time Brant’s recommended me a frame size it’s turned out to be too small… (small Scandal and Mmmbop) and I’ve ended up replacing it with one size up. Just an observation 😉
Personally I’d say if you can’t get the size you actually want, don’t compromise… But ymmv.Posted 4 years agoGarry_LagerSubscriber
I’m similar dimensions to the OP and always feel between sizes on the scandal / whippet geometry – owned both and feel like I need a 110mm stem on them. Saying that, the med is definitely closer to being right for me than a large, I reckon. Think the 21 would not be a good choice.Posted 4 years agoThrustyjustMember
Robbie, you did look a bit big on it though, like it was BMX and you are more ‘lanky’ and ‘gangly’ than me. I felt your 29 er was a bit big for me framewise.
29er here at 19.5in. I.m 6ft 1/2 ” 34 leg, could have gone 18 I think. I’ve ridden Thrustys 18″ 26er and it felt fine.ocriderMember
Its funny how the guys under 6ft dont like the 18″ Scandal
I’m just shy of 6’1 with a 33 inch inside leg and ride an 18″ Scandal with flat, wide bars (Sunline V1, uncut) and a 60mm stem.
I don’t race, but I do get to pretend that I drive a bus in the woods 😆 Which suits me fine.
Edit: My previous bike, a 26er, was a gate. Boy was I missing out on all the fun.Posted 4 years ago
