On Ones are a bit Marmite on this site but as this is my third I have to admit to being a fan. Visiting my LBS to use their compressor I saw this dayglo orange frame buried under a pile of old tyres and buckled wheels and a deal was struck. Not as good as a tip find but I'm still very pleased. All my frames are usually 16" but with the sloping top tube I chanced an 18" to get the benefit of the longer top tube.
How does it ride? I've read that it's a great bike for pi$$ing about on and can't think of anything better to add although it wouldn't be my first choice for crossing maps.

Me too, thinking of building a 29er long forked hardtail and keep revisiting their site, Cotic's and Orange's.
