It was decided that I needed a modern lightweight hardtail in my small fleet of bikes for cross country racing. The On-One Scandal 26er frame took my eye, and they were selling them at the discounted price of £179.99 (£100 off usual price) so I decided to buy one. I really like silver bikes and it was a bonus it was in this raw brushed finish and quite light at 3.5lbs for the frame. This has become a bit of a weightweenie project; I have weighed everything on my digital scales before building it up and it comes in at just over the 10.2kg mark. More to follow.

Yup. Tektro Aquila 'tuned' with titanium hardware (fixing bolts).

Rock Shox Reba RL. Yes I think silver and a green work well together.

I also have some green Michelin Wildgripper Sprints I've been hoarding for a decade. But they are for gravel only.
