What's the rear travel? I understand they're contemplating 120 v 140. I'm voting 140 if anyone at On One is listening.

Current proto, which is an inherited design with a revised seat tube is:-

133mm rear travel
471mm chain stay length
68deg head angle
1in BB drop

I'm not 100% happy with those numbers.

What are you not happy with? BB seems a bit low to me. Rear travel is just right for a trail heavy-hitter or super light AM bike.

I heard on the 29er forum that the only thing thats important is chainstay length...is that what you dont like?

Chainstay length of all 29er FS >120mm rear travel is long for AM take or leave it.
450-455-460 mm is already long. Of course 470 is waay to long for EG29er but i hope for shorter in product model.

If someone want more travel big drops more agility blah blah then 26" is the way to go.

For me its better to have AM geometry in a 29er FS with a lot of rear clearance with less rear travel
but AM geometry ( ok except the chainstays ) not simply an "XC" FS with long travel.
I mean short reach/EET, BB and front end must be low in 29ers for stability and confidence and so on..something like bandit 29. But bandit frame is expensive.
And many of us dont care about santa cruz intense etc.. over 2000 for a frame? no...lets get serious.
if someone have it good for him

Me and many others waiting for true AM geo EG29er with not more than 140 front. More travel front with 29" wheel and you ll have a goofy on bars.... and 120 or 130 or dont care rear.

All we want is AM frame geo and a good price. Go titus give us an AM29er for the masses !!
