So it's no big secret I've been looking at a Carbon 456 frame for a more useable bike. But when I was last at On One we were talking about the Ti bikes and a 456 they had the time before when I was there that got sold.

One of the guys mentions a Lynksey built Ti softtail inbred they're looking at selling. Raced professionally for 1 year and equipped with full XTR M970 that looked totally new. It's one of a kind for On One and it's something I thought you guys might like too see.

Sorry for the not very good pics (All 3 of them.) According to the guy at On One he thought the full build was going to be listed FS at £5,000

The On One showroom IMO really puts the other companies I've seen and been too to shame. If you live around Rotherham and can get there go in. It's really good.

For five grand, you'd think they'd get the cables the right length. :roll:

Looks a bit Cut&Shut?

Think I'd rather have this one at 1/5th of the Cost..

£5000 seem's to be a bargain :lol: since the frame alone was £12,000 in 2008. http://www.tri247.com/article_4196.html

It's a size too big for me and I'm skint and I think it costs too much so I haven't bought it. I'd love a ti 456 though.

The same as any soft tail really. A lot of them fail after time though.
