My new - and only - modern MTB frame of my collection. Bought the frame in December 2011. This will be my first bike with disc brakes at the grand old age of 33. Almost fully built now, but here's just the frame:

Very nice, I had one exactly the same but with the older stickers. The colour looks really nice I think! I preferred to call it poo brown though :D They build up really well, looking forward to seeing it finished!

I don't know a lot about On One but I like that, although I can't help thinking that the graphics look a bit too much, could be more subtle but thats just me :)

would say 100mm would be the least I'd run with that frame... it'll take up to 6"

I have a lovely brown 456 and love it, ridden it with rigid forks and it's currently running rc36 pro class II's. Just bought a Ti hardtail so should really move mine on but I can't bring myself to do it!
