    On-One Inbred?

    Is this a decent frame? I'm looking at the geared steel one in particular. Here's the On-One page: http://www.on-one.co.uk/products/gearedinbred.shtml I have a review of the ti version and it looks like a very good frame, very versitile (two cage mounts, rack and fender mounts, disc and canti mounts).

    I'm 5'10"and my road bike is 58cm but I think it's a bit too big, would I be better with the 16" or the 18"? Does anyone know if the dropouts are 130mm or 135mm?

    Any general comments?

    Are there any other decent frames (any material, not just steel) out there with disc mounts and bottle cages? I'm a bit on the poor side so nice low prices are a must too

    Hi Jonny,
    It takes 135mm hubs - as for the sizing, it depends on what terrain you ride - for singletrack, I'd get the 16" for quicker steering, or if you're going to be riding open terrain then the 18" will be more stable and less tiring to ride as the self-steering effect will be greater with the longer wheelbase. I own a 18" ti singlespeed one with the EBB, which IMHO is the best singlespeed I've riden!

    one of the guys at my lbs has the ti set up as a ss and loves it. I've only seen good reviews of the steel versions. If you email brant@on-one.co.uk he's the owner and very approachable.
    Currently riding an MTB with a split personality - commuting, touring, riding for the sake of riding, on or off road :)

    Yeah I emailed him already. He recommended the 18in, but I'm still not sure. I guess it'd make more sense for ride-a-bility, and with a shorter stem (if need be) it'd be fairly comfortable. Now all I have to do is find a big pile of cash
