Oh happy day, limited numbers of On-One Lurcher frames have finally arrived.
They're are many more on the water to us but right now we do have a few Lurchers in most sizes available to buy.
The first of the Lurcher full builds will be coming soon too. Stay tuned.
What is the Lurcher? It's a cutting edge carbon fibre version of our much-admired Scandal that's what.
An all-round trail-tough, yet carbon-lightweight 29er. The Lurcher has the same geometry and Swap-Outs as the Scandal, but with the forgiving ride and weight-saving of carbon. Taper head tube and Press Fit bottom bracket make for a fat, stiff down tube for tight handling.
The long-awaited Lurcher caused more breathless anticipation than anything we launched in the last couple of years.
The 31.6mm seat tube is dropper post compatible. The rear tyre clearance is huge. The chain stays are dialled for maximum tyre, chainring and weight distribution. This bike just hammers.
The Lurcher as standard sports racey geometry as that's what our Scandal racing racers loved. If you're not so much of racehead then a handy thing about the Lurcher is that its headtube accepts our Slackset headangle-slackening headset.
So you can knock a degree of two of the headangle and have more of technical trail bike if you prefer.
