Carbon 29er Sneak Preview...

carbon-29ercarbon-29er2 Phase two of our 2010 product development is the NEW On-One Carbon 29er that's being designed in conjunction with three time World Adventure Racing Champion and Multisport Legend Richard Ussher... Final tooling is being prepared now and two first samples will be winging their way to opposite ends of the globe in around 3 weeks - One to Richard in New Zealand where he is basing himself as his wife Elena attempts to win the legendary Speights Coast to Coast multisport race (click here), and the other sample to sunny Yorkshire to On-One designer Stevo as his wife attempts to win the legendary Sunday afternoon Knitting Competition held in the Psalter Tavern...

    Sorry but the longer wheelbase and shallow head angle compensated with a longer rake (and yet even longer wheelbase) makes g2 floppy and self steering more than necessary especially in smaller sizes (But great for mass markets.) Remember the longer rake effectively drops that head angle down to compensate for it's shallowness in g2. It kinda works in the larger sizes and in 26" versions. That said, steeper headangle, shorter wheel base with quickened steering still makes for a very stable but responsive and great handling bike in 29" wheel size. (Regardless of mind think, fads etc, it is simple physics.) >>>>>> On-One does things it's own way... Nothing has changed here.. We are using the tried and tested Inbred 29er geometry.... G2 only works if you have G2 forks. G2 is good for "slow speed handling" - direct G2 quote... SO whilst I respect Mr Fisher and his team...they are part of Trek and have the pressures of marketing... Our Frame is NOT for "slow handling" it is a RACE frame

    Yes, pricing would be nice. Also, when will this be available to us little people?

  • D.

    Stevo, what's the target pricing?

  • Clink

    and there is a Steel version coming :-) happy days

Our Frame is NOT for "slow handling" it is a RACE frame....This is a kick ass speed machine for 100mm MAX fork.. However I HAVE tweeked the Geometry on the Ti29er making it more of a Ti2945... For a Longtravel 29er forks.. and there is a Steel version coming...

    BB30 ??. 1 1/8 1 1/5 headtube ?? Post mount for caliper??.internal cables. Made in the same factory as niner?? but without the american bull**** cost 5 to £600 i’ll take two!!! Style matching fork where did you get that idea from Frank!!!

    Looks like some great engineering! I hope you're considering to NOT use the Inbred 29 geometry I was allowed to help think up back when. It's out-dated, and the reasons requiring it (negative attitude to supposed slow handling of big wheels) are long-forgotten. The then chosen 47mm fork off-set has even become the world standard since, really no need to hold on to the steep head tube angle. At least for me, the Inbred 29 front end was not intended as the best possible geometry, rather than one that would slap the critics in the face with snappiness resembling folding 20" bikes. When the Gary Fisher crew actually went out trying various head tube angles and fork offset combinations, they were baffled to find they likes a super-slack, super raked out steering setup over everything else. But they did, and that's what they now offer for sale as G2. Seriously, for such a special ike, do something special. It won't be the best possible bike with an out-dated data set that wasn't even the best possible from the get-go. Looking forward to seeing the end result, J

    yes me too! I currently race a SS Scandal here in Italy :-D

  • Soeren

    I'll be your candidate for testing in germany if you are looking for one ;) Hope the frame will be light and stiff and as soon as possible on the market.

  • Frank Z

    NIce, looks promising. Will there be a (style-)matching carbon fork (as in: full carbon)?

  • Kelly

    What is the estimated release date for the carbon frames? Very interested in a 14" whippet frame.

  • b cragg

    will this one and the whippet have the same modular dropouts as the carbon 456??? just thinking how nice and light the whippet would be in single speed guise with carbon forks... yummy!!

  • Clink

    nice:-) folk on mtbr will ne getting very excited!

  • jupiter

    Direct mount front mech?

  • spongtastic

    I suppose my chances of testing the carbon whippet round the mighty trails of Suffolk and Essex when it arrives are zero? I must say this carbon lark is very tempting.
