My fully rigid On-One Scandal . . .

The only changes since this picture was taken have been:
- shortened the brake hoses
- replaced the Disco brake rotors with Avid G2
- added a Crud rear guard
- covered it in mud

One of the most enjoyable bikes I've owned.

Squint and it looks like a bigger version of mine. (Which I won't post in this thread as it has 26" wheels).

I like this it reminds me of my old raleigh night burner bmx i had as a kid.

My trek 29er is being tweeked at the moment, i've changed the grips but then changed back. new nukeproof electron pedals on order. need to find a new back tyre and maybe lighter and stiffer forks. also looking into my brake set up. i'm also looking at seat options as my current one is like a freakin razor blade.

too right it's a good thing, many happy memories of my night burner. it's just a subtle look with minimal colopuring but gives great visual impression. less is more sometimes.

The Parkwood is meant to be similar geometry to the Scandal, but different design - I'm 6' 4" and the 21" Scandal (see top of this page) is a perfect fit

@33whitey im 5' 7" with a 29" inside leg this is the 16" small size frame and the thing fits me like a glove.My previous bikes have been 26" xc and the Parkwood even though it feels a heavy 30lbs going uphill it seems to climb at the same rate, but it goes downhill an awful lot quicker!! :D

How is it? I'm probably going to order a frame and build one up. It would be nice to try one first, but nobody seems to have one.

I love it.

I'm a big wheel convert. My Carve (now my son's) was very xc but still fun to ride. The Solaris (mine is on 100mm forks) is even more fun. It has a playful character (imho) in that it has had me riding / trying stuff I'd have left for the fs before.
That said it still eats miles well, is plenty comfortable and I'm stoked with it.
