On-One Scandal 29er Vertical Dropout Frame
Our award winning Scandal is back in a new updated incarnation bringing even more to the big wheeled genre than before.
Starting at the front, a new tapered head tube means big fork compatibility. Using our Smoothie Mixer taper headset standard, the Scandal 29 can take taper or straight steerer forks, and is even compatible with our new "slackset" to kick the head angle out for more all-mountain playful handling.
A curved seat tube gives better rear wheel clearance and takes a 31.6mm post, so is "dropper" compatible. Clamp size is 34.9mm.
Gear routing is under the BB for this model, so a bottom pull, low clamp, 34.9mm front mech is used.
BB shell is 68mm English threaded.
Out back, the frame gets the swapout treatment and is fitted as standard with our Type b2 vertical dropout for disc brake compatibility.
Rack mounts are integrated into the rear stays for those that want to do it a.
Frame tubing is a mix of 7046 high strength thin wall multi butted alloy main tubes and 7005 butted and shaped rear stays. Chainstays are bridge less with reinforcing gussets for increased fatigue strength and clearance.
Seatstays are classic On-One wishbone style.
Two bottle mount points are fitted. One on the seat tube and one on the downtube. Seat tube one may be obstructed by a high mount front mech. Low mount mechs are possible only with a 42t or larger outer chainring. Sorry.
Likewise, brake hose routing should follow the top tube and seat tube guides due to possibility of interference with gear cabling on downtube.
Geometry is identical to classic Scandal and Inbred 29 geometry. 444mm rear stays with 72deg head angle on all but the 16in model which features a 71deg angle.
Frame weight is slightly more than previous models, but still certainly well under 4lb, which is best in class at this pricepoint.
Frame finish is either :-
"Super raw". Rough brushed then anodised, with lazer graphics. This finish is factory raw so each frame is unique.
Ano black. Blast finish with black anodise then lazer graphics.
Taiwan Racing Green paint with white outline graphics.
Scandal has our standard 2yr manufacturing defect warranty.
