On One 456

"TooYoungToKnow" Wrote:am i right in thinkingthese are the forks that are specced in the added parts?
It doesn't say which ones, but i imagine they would be coils at that price, but i prefer coils anyway Wink Think the range goes the same as Pikes, i.e. 409, 426 and 454 with single and double airs thrown in there somewhere, plus this year they have introduced Maxel Light versions too. If you are interested just e-mail Brant and he'll tell you everything you need to know. Be warned though, he's a really nice guy but his replies are usually short and blunt, due to the number of e-mails he has to go through every day!

140 but a lot of people say the ideal is 130, which is why they supply them with the Revs. Notice they don't ofer any 140's through their site. I think 140 is best though Smile

I just bought last years giant yukon FS full sus , it's cool , but hard tail is still almost as good for majority of rides, unless you are extremely extreme. This weekend at BBH was Yukon's first ride out, it was good and FS was noticeable, but nothing I could not have managed on hardtail, saying that, Del came a cropper on his hardtail but that was due to tiredness and bad luck i think. Do not rush to get full sus for the sake of it, a well set up frame is much more important.
Keep it foolish...

so its fair to say we;d all promote on-one for many reason.

So, I have seen a couple of their carbon hardtails going reasonable cheap and wondered if anyone has any experience with them, Are they Flexy? worth £250 hard earnt?

I've a 456 summer season for sale if you're interested. It's steel and not what you're after, but hey. They ride nicely but a mate has had to return two carbon 456s due to cracking around the bb and the seatstays.
