John,
Do you know Nightfire? Bit of a 29er man. But they are huge :shock:



Not sure who or what he is? A person or a brand? Local to us?

I love single speeds, I had loads. Of all the bikes I've ever owned, including hardtails, geared and full sussers , the On-one 29er was the BEST riding and worst made bike of all. I had a refund after 4 weeks. Beautiful ride ( especially for tall people ). Rolled over terrain like a German armoured division. Like a Bontrager to MY scale.
Sh*t welding, poor R+D on the V brakes, no quality control on the " bag-o-bits " to assemble the sliding drop-outs ( every part either missing, unfinished or broken after 3 rides ) and it NEVER EVER, even with my strength on the allan keys, was able to maintain chain tension.

I've owned ALL On-ones and they were excellently made ( apart, of course from the poor quality white paintwork which is like an in-joke with owners ). I was SO p*ssed off with the atrocious quality and finish of the 29er ( my " last " Inbred ). Brant was very good with the whole thing and sorted out a refund, no problem.

I had a tinbred and I have to say the finish was superb. Never had a 29er though - don't know what they are for. Duh.
