I use the F6 for work but always preferred steel for pleasure, my first build is the On-One, quite pleased but i think its lacking that something -

I think the only thing that the On-One is lacking is me on the saddle!

Lovely build.

Thanks Nick C

I really love the whole On-One way of bike building, they just seem to design bikes that are meant to be ridden hard, I think I may have to invest in a 456 next!

Both look great 8) , cant really see what the On One is "lacking", no-nonsense bikes and it's a no-nonsense build, i'd be happy with it as it is, even the saddle :)

Thanks everyone!

Wasn't to sure about carbon forks at first ( still not sure about front suspension!) but after reading the reviews on bike radar thought id give them a go, weird at first, felt like i ought to go a bit easy on em but after a while they feel as good a steel with a little more spring in their step.
