It's my first big wheeled bike and it was love at first ride...until my Curtlo arrives in a couple of weeks. I was suprised at how well it rolled over everything, I didn't notice too much difference in added traction or railing turns to be much different but I assume in time I might. Climbing was a joy, switchbacks were no different, and she really likes to get up to speed. The first ride was muddy, snowy, and full of slimy PNW roots. For those considering the on-one, it's a sweet ride. BTW I'm 6'1"and have a 34" inseam without shoes and cringe at the thought of riding the larger frame. I went down 10mm on the stem and LOVE the mary bars. The pearl finsh was a pleasant suprise as well.


so if I can get these photos up...

Nice clean looking bike!
So which size frame did you opt for?

Really nice build there. Those mary bars do look funky but everyone seems to love 'em.
Did you order the frame with the recent pre-order from On One or did you get it from the states?
Still waiting for CC confirmation of my On One 29'er complete bike from the UK.
I do like the freehub and Boone cog, very nice, and easy to change out for a higher gear if needed I bet.
Thanks for the Pic's.

Thanks for the compliments.

The frame is an 18" and I got it as the frame only here in the states. The guys at webcyclery were awesome and it shipped out right away.

Great looking bike, but argh! tilt those Mary bars back over! The sides are pointing up! Or insert a pic of your natural wrist position :)

Then again, your seat points up too, please don't share pictures...

Wow!

For some reason that build just does something for me. Nice ride.

Where in PNW are you? Where'd you ride? I'm in the Seattle area and eagerly awaiting the frame I've got on order, but second guessing my choice now. ;)

Cheers!

Thanks.

I'm in B'ham, mostly ride Galbraith.

I'm having similar second thoughts once I got this built up but I'm sure when the custom frame gets here the on one won't look as irreplacable. :D

makes it easy to pull a wheelie?
or he's so laid back, he's falling over backwards?

Say, did you obtain some extra-long M5 bolts for the rear brake caliper mount? If not, you might want to. The stock bolts that come with the Avids will only thread part way into the caliper due to those two black spacers being squeezed in there. It seems as if the caliper could rip off the threads under hard braking.

I don't do the welds myself - it's the folks at Yoan in Taiwan that do them :)

We tripped over Niner's 853 tubing when we were there last month... they build the steel SIR frames for them.

Thanks for the heads up Nat. I hadn't noticed but I just went and looked and it does seem that some longer bolts are in order. By the way, your bike was the reason I bought this frame, I must have looked at your photos 40 times... true bike porn you have there.
