Forbes On Board On-One

Some of you may remember the story we ran on Scott Forbes earlier in the year? Or if you are like us in the On-One office he is just referred to as 'that bloke who cut his Inbred in half!'.
 
We have kept in touch with Scott and watched as he travelled the globe with his Inbred in a suitcase, getting in an uninterrupted training programme despite his job as a long haul pilot.  Scott's been amazed at the sense of community riding an On-One brings - everything from the help we gave him and the resulting positive feedback on his "1/2 Inbred" Project through to bumping into On-One riders around the world, including his bikes non-folding American cousin in New York recently.
 
Scott's been keeping a close eye on the development of our carbon bikes, specifically The Whippet.  After wrapping up this years National Masters XC Mountain Bike Series (in which the 1/2 Inbred played no small part in training), Scott is planning an assault on the Elite Series next year.
 
After a meet up last week it looks as though the On-One Whippet will be joining Scott on the start line for the Elite Series as after being amazed by the new Planet X / On-One HQ and showroom he was even more amazed after giving Helen Claytons' race bike a shake down around Langsett and Cut Gate.
 
He couldn't stop smiling - the deal was sealed at the top of the first climb and I think Scott has had a bit of a nirvana moment about On-One's prefered longer bike / shorter stem geometry... lets leave the 130mm stems to the Fluro Euro racer brigade, eh Scott?
 
Stay tuned for more On-One team news soon - next year we will be taking more than the Airstream, 10m high Inbred men and a BBQ to events as we introduce "Team Gipper"- the older I get the faster I was...
 
Scott has just sent a 'postcard' from Denver - his 1st in On-One colours here
