    Tight corners are fine*

    * I don’t really ride anywhere with tight corners. Peaks, Cannock, Ambergate and Bestwood are my locals.

    I’ve been on a geometron for a couple of years. There have only been a couple of corners where the length of a bike was a problem. 800mm wide bars are the limiting factor for me.

    That is a long down tube. Maybe they could be called the OnOne supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, the sticker would fit😀

    Because as the teachers were explaining today, after you’ve been sick it’s 48 hours later when you return.

    So @brant …. Lots of name suggestions. But when is it due to land? Price? Build options etc?

    Serious question, when it’s that long and slack, will the forks want to snap at the crown on a big drop to flat.

    will the forks want to snap at the crown on a big drop to flat.

    I’m sure an engineer will be along in a moment tell you that an extra 5* slacker won’t up the forces too much. However in principle you are right – fork crown and head tube welds under more pressure.

    I’m more concerned about it being at the extreme end of some handling traits and the fact that it looks like a clown bike…

    But when is it due to land?

    Head, top and down tubes arriving Monday. Seat tube, seat and chain stays on Thursday

    I Wasn’t sure on the looks at first, but weirdly it’s starting to grow on me. I’d assume that forks are overengineered enough to take the stresses (and the frame should be built with that in mind right?).

    I don’t need a new bike, but…

     I’d assume that forks are overengineered enough to take the stresses

    Given the desire for ever more capable, longer & lighter single crown forks, I’d say not.

    I run a 170mm single crown Fox 36 on a fairly big 29er enduro race bike, which although slack, isn’t silly at 64 degrees. I’ve been through 3 CSU’s in 11 months on that bike due to constant creaking & cracking.

    Another set of 150mm versions of the same fork on another bike, less slack & it took 6 months but they have now started creaking too. It seems to have become more of an issue for me in recent times. I know I’m not alone, most of my friends have similar issues with most brands of forks. I get we might not the average trail centre warriors, as we race to a reasonable standard, but even so, reliability is not a strong point it would seem.

    But is that a factor of the slack head angle moving the forces elsewhere or bikes just getting faster and hitting stuff harder?

    Combination of the two I would think. Along with (relatively) light, big travel forks. Its a hell of a lot of leverage on a small area. Even more so if you do something silly like come up short or overshoot a jump.

    @hobnob Is that on the RAAW madonna with the big boobies?

    Its is really just me thinking that they should have been called

    On One Gnar

    On One ‘Poon…..

    The longer one is yes, the shorter one is on an SB130.

    What sort of gloss green?

    Slightly sad ‘Ralph’ and ‘Huey’ didn’t make the cut, but ‘Hello Dave’ is funny!

    Better to ask then assume, but I’m sure I can guess the answer, boost?

    I get the reference.

    I can’t see how it applies in this case.

    Because they were previously someone else’s bike?

    Oh.

    Except they weren’t really were they? Not until the frame builder got paid at any rate.

    Bit tenuous.

    That’s… long. Tempted to get one just to see what it’s like.

    Some wierd numbers there, steeper SA and longer chainstays on the 29er.

    27.5er has more BB drop, although neither is really that low.

    Reach is less bonkers than I was expecting, the medium 29er is the same as a large Bird 29er hardtail.

    Apparently the 27.5er will take a 2.8 rear tyre, but the 29er is unlikely to take a 650b+. Tempted by the 650b now, hmmmmmm.
