If I were in your position, I would probably buy the Transition TransAM over the On-One, just because of what I've heard about any of Transition's bikes. I think in this situation you'll get what you pay for.
Got my frame in. I like it. The frame is lighter than I expeced, although I did not actually weigh it. Welds and all details look superb. I have the "raw" finish, which is raw steel with some type of varnish/ clearcoat. It is different and I like it. The wheels/components I have ordered are black with some grey and I think it will make for a striking appearance. So far I have installed the stem, fork, seatpost (and clamp), rear brake and saddle. I ordered the stem, seatpost and seatpost clamp from On One. A little dissapointed in the stem. It is forged and very heavy. Also I ordered an 80mm, which, now that it is on the bike looks to be too long. I suggest 50 or 60mm and may have to back up and punt this one/jscusmcvet said:My On One Summer Season frame is being delivered tomorrow. Have a Recon 351 (130mm) fork for it. I am trying to figure out the rest of the build as we speak. I can't wait.
Gonna ride it first and then make a call on it. Can't wait to get the rest of the build done. Psyched that wifey has my back on this one. In her words, "I think you've earned this one".... well, hell yeah, ain't that what I've been telling her all these years?moishlashen said:Cool John. Flip the stem on ebay if you can't send it back to on one.
It's good for a beginner. I'm a big guy (lost weight since buying it) so fork is a bit soft so can't stand n' mash too much. The bike feels good on descents (has a lower BB than the bikes being discussed; under 12"). Basically feels solid but I haven't ridden anything else so can't compare.Fleacircus said:What do you think of it overall?
