BOTM: THE SWISS ONE - part 1

Andy Kessler - 10-Aug-2016
After last month's "understatement performance" Bike of the Month now this month a more flashy "ONE".  The base for the build is our small ONE+ frame that actually fits small people properly, as you can read in a previous blog of Gerard. There are many "technical" reasons to go for 27.5 on a small frame but I hope that after seeing the pics of this beauty you will understand that also aesthetically this is the way to go on a small hardtail frame instead of "stretching" to 29".

Originally we had different plans for the shooting of this BOTM but we had to change them last minute.  

Find out more in the following video and in the upcoming blogs for the "Swiss ONE".

For stiff suspension forks, we generally like the Lefty, the Rockshox RS-1 and the Fox Stepcast

Mr. @Andy, @Gerard: I always wondered how a size small one + frame will look built. I must agree, that "Swiss ONE" clean lines is aesthetically pleasing. Well done!

I think the big bike companies around the world better keep their eye on the prize. Open undoubtably is locked on winning the game!
