Bootzipper - going back to our roots

It was Dave's idea. He doesn't like modern mountainbikes. He's not a fan of V brakes, and actually really like cantilevers and has never got on with disc brakes. 

He wanted a bike to "go back to his roots" - a proper simple mountainbike. And so him and brant designed one, and brant put disc brakes on it and 650B wheels with non boost because brant's a dick.



It's called the Bootzipper - its a rigid only 650B mountainbike. It'll come with a different fork, and it's brilliant. Because we say so.

We built it up with tan walls too. 



Model - On-One Bootzipper
Wheelsize - 650b x 2.1, non boost (fits our Road Plus wheelsets)
Frame material - DB 4130 Chromoly
ETA - Early Summer

    Very nice! It looks to me like the bottle cage mounts on the frame should satisfy most needs. The mudguard mounts are a bit hard to spot though, are there any for full length? If not, I completely agree with above comments of including them for a more well rounded multi purpose frame. Also a fork with anything cage mounts added would be stellar. And this is me wishing for the impossible probably but what about a dedicated single speed version like the Inbred you once had. Still my all time favorite On-One frame!

    OH MY FREAKING GOD ! I want one. Well, I want two, because my wife will need the same. BUT, please please please, make an option to have a fork with eyelets everywhere (2-3 eyelets on each side for anything cages + 1 pair for mudguards). PLEASE !

    May I suggest that the frame is developed to carry pannier racks back and front, full mud guards and 2 water bottles, either Trekking or drop bars and MECHANICAL disc brakes over hydraulic? Why? 1. Not all of us can afford, have the space to entertain the N+1 bike formula. 2. Developing a more universal frame that can function as an MTB/Hybrid/Commuter/Adventure/Gravel bike will appeal to a much wider audience. Especially if the role changes can be implemented by the DIYer. Brant, good decision on the wheels and discs! I am preparing a 'hybrid' for some adventure touring in Wales and Europe this year hence the 'flexible' angle of my view on this new bike. Looks good so far.

    Needs Project 2 (and a bit) forks. And bar-ends. For me, the head tube is a bit tall. Looks a bit "90's hybrid". Great idea though.
