I'm toying with going a bit more modern and was looking at building up an On one frame.
As they didn't exsist when I was last a serious rider I know nothing about them other than I've never actaully seen one in the real world.
Whats the general concensus on these?

Great value but many say they have a pretty dead ride. My mate beavis loves his Inbred 29er though.

They're good, well thought out, built to a price mind, paints not the best. On-one as the name implies did start out as a single speed builder and thus they tend toward a beefier/stiffer build to get the most out of your often out of the saddle cranking so not the springiest or lightest except of course on your wallet :D

I love my 456 Inbred, with a long fork it does nearly everything my carbon full susser will do.

I was so pleased with it I built up a Scandal as my XC bike.

If you can afford one the Ti frames are even better.

Chainsuck? What are the issues with it? Or just on your recent purchase?

On-One were selling 456's for £99 recently. Not shure how chain suck can be caused by the frame, I always thought it was a drive chain issue though?
