Hey People

Going to pull the trigger on 29er steel rig. But I need some feedback...

I am 1.88 meter tall, 93 kg. Also want to run it geared.

Niner MCR or On-One Inbred ? I like the niner allot but the price might ambush my plans. Then there is the On-One Inbred... Seems to be cheap, compared to the niner, and that is not a bad thing But I do not find allot of reviews of the bike or allot of information about the company on the web. So would like to know from the people that rides them...

Ciao

I am 189 tall. If I had the money, I would go for an MCR. I do own an Inbred with sliding dropouts as a winter bike.



It looks cool from the distance but what I dont like is the pretty straight chainstays. I tend to touch the chainstays and especially the brakes with my feet. The brakes because they are mounted before the center of the wheel - because of the sliding dropout.

And: as far as I remember: the MCR is about 20% lighter than the MCR. On the long run it's easier to replace a wheelset or the tires in terms of weightsaving but you won't just easily replace e frame.

I do own a RIP and an EMD and I am happy with it. But the reason I bought an Inbred was to save the two from Munich salty Winter roads...

I would suggest buying a MCR

There's generally no need for a replaceable dropout on a steel frame. If it bends, you can bend it back. Actually, the Niner replaceable dropout might make this area more prone to failure, since it puts a hole through a thin section of the frame.

I forgot: The Inbred has NO replaceable rear dropout. That should be standard..
