- The new Aluminium Scandal 29er from on one / planet x
Just got this on the daily planet x email. Any updates for the aluminium version of the Scandal?
Our Bootzipper project is nearly ready to launch.
Final tweaks on graphics.
They will come in 650B and 29in versions.
650B model takes our gravel wheelsets and so is 12×142 rear, 100×12 front, rigid only, 405mm fork length, non boost drivetrain.
29er is 148×12 rear, 110x15mm front, 440mm fork, boost drivetrain.
Both have post mount frames and forks and 44mm head tubes.Posted 7 months ago
I’ve been running in Vapour Gloves for a couple of years now and these are definitely descended from them. In terms of wear, we’ll see what we can do – pricepoint is certainly going to be WELL under Merrell, so I’d hope we can address £/mile in that way at least!
Without Graphene (which I can’t get), it’s a balance of grip vs wear on minimal soles in some ways. I found the 5000 Mile soles on Xero Shoes like bloody ice skates frankly.Posted 7 months ago
I’m I getting the wrong end of the stick, or is the new 29er ‘Bootzipper’ actually the new Inbred 29er? Judging by the pictures it is…either way the raw version looks grand and I want one.
Steel rigid 29er aka Bootzipper29 aka new Inbred29 Bootzipper.
440 fork. No suspension. Non. No no no.
Someone will though.Posted 7 months ago
So the Big Dog is a different frame?
Excellent, it sounds right up my street. Are you releasing a rigid fork for it at the same time, and will it be a frame + fork set? Will the fork have bikepacking barnacles on 🙂

Sorry Brant, I feel like I’m badgering you and should just wait and see, but…..in theory, how would the Twentyninbrootzipped fork play with a 29 x 3″? Enquiring minds want to know.
I think it might. I’ll check. It wasn’t a required spec as far as I remember but maybe I checked.
What dimensions are you looking for?Posted 6 months agomedlowMember
I just wanted to say, I am one of those people, who are sorry for selling Scandal V2 in brushed aluminium (factory pre-scratched, to prevent any further scratches) 🙂 Waiting impatiently for new one.
I just wanted to boast that I was one of the lucky ones that bought a 2nd hand frame from here. (was it yours? 16″ and with a crank bros headset)..
Flippin ace it is, espcially in brushed alu.:
