Os Bikes Blackbuck

OS Bikes Of Spirit ( OS ) Blackbuck is a 29# tire one-speed built with CroMoly steel for a lively ride at an affordable price.

Mark Slate designed the Blackbuck based on frame design experience dating back 29 years.

Slate designed the first true 29# diameter tire in 1999 which needed a frame to fit it.

In this case, it is the Blackbuck.

It is a particular interesting choice in that OS Bikes sells it with a Reba fork in the complete bike package or with a rigid, non-suspension corrected fork if you want with the frame only option.

I chose to transfer over my On One Superlight Carbon fork over to the Blackbuck first.

This was done so that I can.

29/12/2007 Recently, I visited with Mark Slate of WTB fame.

His passion for bikes extends beyond tires and seats.

As a side project, he created OS Bikes and a very clean, sweet single-speed 29# wheel mountain bike.

As many 29er fans know, Mark is one of the #, OS Bikes Blackbuck Gen II: Ride Impressions: by Grannygear.

When I saw Guitar Ted#s review of the OS Bike #s Blackbuck steel single speed, I loved the look of it right away.

I also liked the concept of the split shell eccentric bottom bracket as a chain tensioning device rather than sliders or a wedge type/set screw eccentric bottom bracket.

There are about 40 complete OS BlackBuck complete bikes available.

Framesets have been sold out.

Even though the parts are not current model year, the whole package is really nice.

17/09/2013 In the end, the Blackbuck satisfied all of those check marks, and then some.

Plus, I talked to Mark in person and his phone hospitality was excellent.

In the last handful of years, I’ve owned a handful of SS 29ers: KHS Solo One SE – this is the bike that introduced me to the world of both single speeds and 29ers.

For that, I am grateful.

Its a Blackbuck G2 made by OS Bikes.

I know someone had a Gen 1 on here but haven#t seen any pics for a long time.

Steering felt really quick compared to my Swift as the head angle is quite a.
