Yes, it's On-One Inbred number 3 :facepalm:
First there was the 26er, that morphed into a 69er, before i picked up number 2, a 29er (still following? :lol: ), and now number 3, 29er number 2, has arrived in my possession :D

I picked up this Single speed specific 29er frame from another forum, for forks Ive taken a gamble and purchased some generic Chinese carbon fibre forks (i have my dentist on speed dial :lol:) the wheels are currently taken from my Gravel bike (it's wearing it's road/turbo trainer wheels for the winter), Single speed bits i already had in the spares box, chainset was bought as a right crank, and few days later the matching left crank popped up on a popular auction site :lol:

Starting off with 32:21 gearing and see how it goes.
Just waiting on a chain and budget busting Hope bash ring arriving in the post and it should be ready to ride :)

Looks good. I am also using Chinese carbon forks and they have been fine after hundreds of miles despite being worryingly light!

Took it for a ride today, had get the mudguards fitted as the ground was pretty boggy with the melting snow.
Cassette spacers are a mash-up of whatever I had to get the chainline right, I might get some "proper " cassette spacers on due course, but I think 32:21 gearing is ok for now.

I've updated things a little since the last update:

Fitted a DMR chain tug with integrated mech hanger, so it's now 1x10 with a 11-42 cassette and 32T oval ring up front.
Found some cheap Suntour Raidon 100mm Air forks on another forum.
It's on its 2nd set of wheels as I keep thumping the rear wheel into rocks :lol: combination of low pressures and an over zealous rider :o

Did the Glentress 7 on it this year, and a local Enduro race few weeks back.
For some reason I love these frames, great for general trail riding and can handle a bit of Enduro riding too (although it was obvious that longer/slacker/more travel would have made things easier!).

Think I'll be hanging onto this one for a while yet :)

I briefly had a ScandAL , 29er I think? A couple of years ago. I don't know why but I just couldn't get used to it :? I probably should have given it more time & ridden it mire tbh, everyone else who's ridden them raves about them.

Edit: here's the ScandAL (V2?) that I had....
