- So an On One Codiene just fell onto my doormat…
I did check, the previous thread is closed.
The Planet X mag arrive with what looks like the final bike inside. Now I don’t need the Reverb, so if O-O could do me a build with a Thompson post, I’d be quite tempted to buy that as a do it all bike sometime in the future.
Looks good eh?Posted 4 years agoKryton57Subscriber
Sometimes people don’t want more bounce – that isn’t a point really is it. But you do get a CCDB and a pike on a bike that should be very capable over a large marketable sector of riders.
The Codeine bothers me, it’s basically a one-bike attack on my On One toy-throwing. I’d have to be daft to buy another bike from them, and yet, and yet… Might have to steal one.
It bother me be causes it’s a 29er and doesn’t have a carbon rear like my asr5 but is otherwise hard to justify as a replacement.Posted 4 years agoAlexSimonSubscriber
Didn’t we just find out that april has become may/june
Also, when people say it’s not cheap. X01/Pike/CCDBA are where the value comes in. All best-in-class.
I wouldn’t choose the brakes, but I’d live with them for a year and then see how they’re getting on before contemplating replacement.Posted 4 years ago
I said nothing but I’m quite sure this thread will be brought up daily for a few months until the bike comes out.
Thankfully this board is but a fraction of the number of cyclists out there, and when did Brant/On-one/PX ever pay attention to the comments on here, other than to resolve yet another staff/order/quality issue.Posted 4 years agoFuzzyWuzzySubscriber
Who’s idea was it to actually spec Avid brakes or do ‘manufacturers’ get big discounts from SRAM for spec’ing them as part of a group (or indeed are they forced to take them as part of a group)? Mind you Canyon seem to spec them on some of their Shimano build models to which irritates me even more.Posted 4 years ago

Most likely something like that, or Shimano aren’t available or want a bigger order or are more expensive. An awful lot of built bikes seems to come with Avid etc that not many people really want. It’s put me off a couple of purchases actually.
I got burned when I bought a SRAM crankset with odd BCD (I didn’t know better, they should have), then I wore out the rings and couldn’t get replacements, the cranks had to come off and go in a box, they’re still there. Thanks for that.Posted 4 years ago
