The On-One 29 Inbred is packed with features that make it a great all-rounder a hassle-free grab-and-go bike ready for any trail. The Inbred 29er frame is somewhat of a legend on the trail scene hand-crafted from double-butted DN6 4130 chromoly steel, its a chassis well capable of handling anything you can throw at it. Steel is real cry enthusiasts, and you know what, theyre onto something! The Inbreds frame is incredibly strong yet it really soaks up the rough stuff thanks to its steelie qualities. Nothing rides like steel. Fact. Many try to emulate it, but theyre all just imitations. Now you can ride the real deal!
Just as suited to long rides on the on the Moors as it is ripping singletrack on the local trails, the Inbred 29er is tried, tested and honed during many hours of R&D. The 29'er wheels mean a super-fast bike, perfect for XC speed. The excellent handling Inbred also has clever design features, such as fully enclosed cable routing and huge clearance around the stays and chainring, designed to keep out the mud and keep you rolling.

All frame size recommendations are approximate. A good fit will also depend on the correct choice of stem length, correct bike set-up for the rider and riding style.
Correct frame size choice can also depend on a rider’s torso and limb length.
I was looking for a cost effective way to add a rugged road/commuter bike and decided to buy a 29er instead of a cross/gravel/hybrid, using 32mm-28mm city tires. My brother has a 456 he likes, so I bought an On-One. I decided to put a Surly Krampus fork on it because I knew at some point I would take it off road and I would have an option for a 29+ tire. My first ride off road was, surprising. It was my first rigid mtb ride in 20 or so years. Other than riding with way too loose of a grip on the bars and too much air in the 2.4 and 2.2 tires, it was a lot of fun. I was shocked by how well it climbed and cornered. Especially hearing people say how slow 29ers turned. It's pretty quick and can be ridden aggressively, it's not slow at all. I'm currently running Halo Vapour rims, which are on the lighter side, so that helps it. After riding offroad with it 10 or so times, if I added a 100mm suspension fork, I'm thinking it would be just as fast as my 26er's on the downhills and every bit as fast on the climbs while seated. I too have an issue with the smaller drop out, but didn't notice it at first. I am using an XT rear hub and it fits fine or snug is a better word, but when I tried to put my 26er Hope wheel in there (so the bike wasn't sitting on the derailleur while I touched up the wheel in a truing stand) I could not get the Hope in there. It's not a deal breaker, because the bike is awesome, but it will have to be addressed at some point. All in all, very pleased and am sold on the 29er wheel size, but a drop out issue like that should not happen as they are standard production drop outs. Would have got a 5 if not for the drop out..
Great frame, it's my first 29er and a lot of fun to ride. Pretty heavy, but great ride quality. I had to replace initial frame due to a flawed rear dropout as mentioned in other reviews -- Planet X was very accommodating and communicative once I thoroughly explained the problem. Very good customer service.
Bought a 21.5" Teal. Great frame for the money and makes a very good looking bike. Tips:- I used a Salsa CroMoto Grande fork which is a good match. - If you're buying one of these frames, add one of the On-One 29.8mm seatclamps to your order before check out.- Use a long seatpost (350-400mm) as the sloping top tube means a lot of seatpost gets exposed. - Chase and face BB and headtube (if required) before building.- Rustproof the frame before building. (Framesaver or similar)Pros:- Price. Nothing else remotely close to the value this offers. Next step up is Surly Karate Monkey and Ogre which are over twice the cost (but do come with a fork and seatclamp).- Ride. Handles very well. 'Springy'.- Also rides well when loaded (panniers etc)- Mudguard and rack braze-ons- Sloping top tube, good for stand overCons:- A bit heavy, to be expected perhaps- No suitable On-One CroMo fork available!- Only one set of water bottle bosses (downtube)- Frame needed quite a bit of 'chase and face' work on the BB shell to get the BB to sit correctly. Threads were very rough. Comments for On-One:- The frame has numerous braze-ons for racks and mudguards which enhance utility, please add another set of water bottle bosses on the seat tube to complete the set!- If you're getting another batch of Inbred 29 frames made, please consider having some suitable steel forks for sale as well. There aren't many rigid steel fork options suitable for the frame other than Surly/Salsa stuff.- If you had the removable dropout option still for sale I would have bought that frameset. Any chance it's coming back?
I'm afraid I can only second this review - identical paint chip and drive side dropout was way too small so that I had to file it out to fit the wheel.On the plus side, the bike is fun to ride and quality overall seems quite good for the price. There are no stops for cable housing because the frame is intended to run full length housing, so no issue there. I'm giving it one less star than the previous review because of the slow (it took 3 days) and perfunctory response I got regarding the dropout issue. I was told that they had not heard of this before (despite the above review on your own website? Really?) and that I had forfeited my warranty by filing it. If not some kind of recompensation (which would have been the nice thing to do-maybe a voucher or something), at least some kind of apology would have been appreciated. Not impressed, and I would hesitate to recommend On One to anyone else based on my own experience.
This one of the best frames ever, rids beautifully very comfy very very very...highly recommended .On one service is the best .I will for sure order from them again.
pros.price and orange colorcons.paint chipped rear drive side dropout way smaller than nondrive side, hadto file down just to fit the axle in. other side was finerear derailleur housing passthru have no stops unsure whatto do there have sis 4mm standard shimano housing.
