Okay so the Continental RaceSport tyre experiment was ultimately a failure. Nice and light, grip great but porous as a sieve, hard to seat on the rim and with the structural integrity of plastic bags. Expensive lesson in why not to use too light a tyre learned. Hans Dampf SS tyre set on order from Germany.

Shame though as the pushed the bike under the 25lb mark.

I ended up selling my Ragley which i totally regret, but one of my cameras were stolen/lost so i needed to get another camera....

But now i'm back on the market for another one.... I'm looking at the On One because of the price. Now the real question is should i just get a 650B frame or 26er? i need to get everyone all over again so it makes no difference to me,

Get a 650b because the headtube/seattube are tapered/dropper compatible. Look back a couple of pages and you'll find a dialled 650 version.

thanks, yeah, since it's all going to be new, and i'll use it as a commuter/light AM bike, i should be all good. :-) Def. sold on the On One 650B.... does anyone knwo anything about the sizing of those frames?

i'm 5'10....

I'd say go for 18" (L) and put a short stem. According to their size recommendations you're between sizes, go a size larger with a shorter stem rather than smaller with longer stem.

SO the only thing you may not like about the On one (which is a great feeling bike) is the non replaceable derailleur hanger. My buddies get's bent quite a lot.
