    Cheers blister puss... some intresting comments....don't agree with some of them with regards to the apperance of the frame. The strength comes from the aerial weight and weave of the carbon along with the resin system...then we have the manufacturing technique..resin injection and resin infusion or preimpregnated carbon fibre. The surface finish is the skill of layering the laminates and the choice of material an open weave will allways look worse than a close weave.

    They could have made the frame retail at 4 times the retail using the best materials but On One give us great bikes at great prices..if they retailed at a grand people would moan that there two can only comend them for building a fantastic looking frame at a brilliant price....will be ordering one myself

    it's all in the ride for me, i'd have to properly demo carbon first, only ever had a brief burst on one (get it). but I'd seek one out for a test ride somewhere out of pure nosey-ness. those graphics look good to enough to eat some of them.
