I find lots of teasing going on latelly on facebook and twitter about the On-one Codeine prototype, their new mid travel trail slayer full suspension bike. I think it´s becoming time to ask nicelly :) about some final specs, frame weight, geo/size charts, stealth post compatibility, colors, what kind of builds and boundles we can spect... everything really! the aggresive geometry whitout too much travel concept looks appealing.

Does it bother anyone else that the chain is soo darn close to the chainstay in high gear? Its like 1CM away. At speed, it would beat the crap out of the stay.

Maybe I am just nitpicking?

Wrap the stay... problem solved. As far as I am concerned every manufacturer should be shipping their bikes with pre-wrapped stays so that the consumer doesn't have to worry about it.

Haha, I have a Trance 29er which for all intents and purposes would fit into the same market as this. I am sure I would regret parting with it as well.

Also have a 45650B but broke my ankle recently and doubt ill be doing anything rowdy on a hardtail for some time. So, the 650B Codeine gets my attention - a bit more jumpable than the Trance and easier on the ankle.

So if may is killing you - imagine waiting on the proto haha. Hopefully its not too long since its based off the 29er.

Yeah I see you're anguish. I love the 456, flicky, light but batters the old hinges over the rocky bits and my mate puts time into me there then I haul him in on the twisty stuff. Personally I went for the 29er as I wanted something "differenter" lol and still get a bit barmy. Can't see the frame being that different for 650B (I'm no expert), get a codeine and 160fork hehe.. How does your 45650B rate?

You will love the long travel 29er. Poeple always mention roll over - but the momentum of the 29er just rolls longer, so spread that over a ride and you have more energy to ride longer. Thats one of ym favorite upsides to the 29.

4560B only had like 2 rides on it prior to crashing, but it was fun and was easy to get airborne, which is what I was after.

Pacenti rims I think but the boss won't let me go out and gawp at. No air in forks or can yet, hope to get some setting done and better pics later. Planning Llandegla tomorrow after work for a bit of tuning and frolicking.
