I think I will go with either a 2.2 rubber queen or a 2.25 fat albert on the rear

thinking of buying a One, how good is it really. amazing sale going on right now. i heard there were some issues, but didn't all new bikes have some issues. i am going to sell my hardtail (has not been ridden in 2yrs) and Yeti ASR ( rode about 4 times this year). i mostly ride my Yeti ASX. it is slow riding in the city streets and on the climbs but it is so much fun everywhere even on the streets and climbs. i am thinking of the One or Diggle to replace all 3 bikes. issues i had with ASX that i think the Canfield solves are: weight, standover height, pedaling (even though i think the ASX pedals great), and slack seat angle. i do not do insane jumps, drops, or downhilling. please pm me reviews or post them. thanks.

Just about to post a full review of the bike (and comparison to an Intense Tracer). Basically it is a 575 on steroids! Sweet little ripper with a 160mm on the front and long, plush travel in the back. You can't run a 180mm fork on it or use it as a freeride rig. True it is the first version of the bike and the quirks are being worked on for next years version.

Running a 2.5 High Roller DH Super Tacky UST in the back (small ' Diggle) good fit, nice width, not uber tight for height. (on crossmax SX's)

I have owned a 575 and AS-X. No doubt the One pedals much better in the granny. My AS-X was a medium and the One a large. The medium AS-X had better stand over clearance. I went with the large because of the issue with fork clearance. There is none with the large and it fits me great. My build is 32.1lbs. Despite that weigth and the 7" setting it pedals like a 5" bike. I run a Talas 36 2009 and mostly ride it set at 130mm and it's a great climber. I was very surprised how well it could climb. My biggest adjustment was keeping more weigh on the rear tire than with the 575. Otherwise the wheel would spin when powering up a climb. Another difference is I was always almost seated with the 575. I now stand up more often with the One. Not sure why. I had a DHX5.0 air on the 575 and it was not very good in the midstroke. That might explain it. I much more prefer the feeling and performance of the coil on the One.
