- What’s this new On One Project? (Brant Brant Brant!)
Tried a 29er wheel in the tiktik
2.25 seems to fit fine, but not a 100% test as don’t have the proper axle and 148 rear
Rear triangle seems wider than 148 so you will be tensioning it as you tighten the masks, hopefully it won’t be an issue.
Replacement frame due FridayPosted 1 month ago
Finally finished building mine and had a first ride today. It climbs and pedals so well very impressed. It’s been a while since I’ve had a bike with this steep of seat angle and it rides so well.
Unfortunately as with my thoughts when building it it’s too short for me which is a shame. I’m going to wait for the XL’s and grab one of them.
**Stealth ad** anyone looking for a Large Dave with axle and headset drop me a message as I’ll be listing it in the classifieds in the next day or two.Posted 1 month ago
Heads up if anyone is thinking of installing the new shimano xt m8120 4 pot caliper on a 180 rotor (on the rear), it fouls the frame and won’t fit. A 160mm rotor will work with the 4 pot via direct mount or a 2 pot will fit with a 180mm rotor.
May save someone finding out the hard way 👍Posted 1 month ago
Finally got out on the Hello Dave today, a great fun bike, had to do a bit of tweaking, roll bars forward etc but a fun bike even round Bedgebury which is very pedally the bike did well, am 6ft on a large with 50mm stem & Spank Vibrocore bars cut down with Deathgrips they were 800 but swapped for Burgtec grips & am running 150mm brand X dropper. Need to adjust air on RXF34 Ohlins forks make but softer compared to when on Smuggler, running at 140mmPosted 1 month ago
My impressions of the bike so far:
Build: Hello Dave Large (should have been XL as I’m 6’2″ but I was On-One’d). Superstar Isotope Wheels, Yari Debonair 150mm forks, XT brakes / drive-train. Spank Spike bars. Magic Mary 2.6 front / DHR 2.4 rear. One-up 170mm dropper. Deathgrips.
Firstly, it weighs 15.7kg – the heaviest bike I’ve ever owned. 8 years ago I was riding a full suss Trance that came in at 11.5kg!
– It feels like it’s quite a lot of effort to get it rolling
– Immense wheel noise on the road (getting to/from the woods)
– Much more effort to get the front up – esp compared with my Switchback
– Somehow climbs brilliantly – I think it’s the seat tube angle
– Rides like it’s on rails – I just don’t need to brake!
– Amazing grip – I see others sliding around and I’m rock solid over the same features
– Smooths out rough trails well – I’m guessing that’s the 29er v. 650b factor
– I love riding it, and the extra effort is no doubt making me fitter!
Next steps:Posted 1 month ago
– 203mm front rotor / 180mm rear (currently 180/160)
– Perhaps RCT3 damper, although I can’t say I can fault the Yari Debonairs. Not noticeably worse than the Pike RC’s or Yari Debonair RCT3’s on other bikes
– A head custom badge (anyone know of any 3d printer designs than I could base on off?)edward2000Member
Guandax – Is the wheelset heavy? Maybe that’s why it feels like its not so easy to get it rolling? Do you know the frame weight by any chance? I rode a P7 recently which I think has a 65 degree HA. I don’t know why but that still felt too steep which is why I like the sound of the Hello Dave. How do you find the super slackness?Posted 1 month ago
How are the Superstar Isotope wheels? Are the hubs and rims of good quality?
They seem good. Pretty sh*tty weather recently and I’ve had he freehub off to check and it was perfectly dry inside. The rims also survived Rim Dinger at BPW, which has previously caused me problems.Posted 1 month agogardronMember
FWIW I don’t find mine an issue to get up to speed at all, but then I’ve got light-bicycle/hope/cx-rays on it so they’re not exactly chunky. Yeah, it’s not as lively putting the power down as a lighter frame but it’s nothing massive.
It does however feel somewhat sedate going uphill or on the flat. Comes alive pointed down though and I totally agree with it feeling like it’s on rails.Posted 1 month agobricknallMember
Hopefully clear some things up. I have a large TikTik, been running 27.5×2.4 WTB Judge on the rear with loads of clearance. 180mm axle and boost set up.180mm rotor with Hope v4 brakes. I believe that the medium won’t fit a 180mm rotor and a V4 caliper due to clearance on the seat stay.
I have however just fitted a 29×2.4 Onza Aquila tyre in the TikTik and there’s a little clearance either side. Maybe 8 ish mm either side of the tyre on the stays, more on the seat stays. Tyre measures 60mm width. Will find out about clearance next muddy ride, probably at the weekend. Theres some pictures on a thread in the steel is real Facebook page. (I’ve no idea how to upload them here!)
