I’m tempted to buy an On-One Whippet frame. Looks like good value for a light frame and just the kind of thing I will like. However, is the whole restriction on front mechs, chainsets & bb just too much of a hassle? I just ride bikes these days rather than know every groupset inside out and I’m not sure how much of a headache I will be giving myself.
On my shortlist. Some issues on triple chainsets and clearance issues do a search. The other thongs you mention add to the cost to change my frame which is slightly off putting. I liked the paint job too though they only seem to come in black now
It is a light frame but an overall average weight build in the £999 SLX form. If you ride it in the mud with the supplied SLX triple it grinds away at the BB shell. These problems notwithstanding it does ride very well.
