The ONLY ONE is the only frameset on the market with the Speedhound Dropout System™ (SDS) or anything like it. The SDS maximizes your drivetrain choices by allowing you to change out the type of dropout. It also allows the spacing between the dropouts to be adjusted for different types of hubs.
Based on a cyclo-cross bike geometry, the Speedhound ONLY ONE also features a wide fork crown and HouseBend™ chainstays that can accommodate 700 X 35 tires, large chainrings, and narrow chainlines. There are few limits to what kind of bike this frameset can be.
What you get – The ONLY ONE is sold as a frameset (frame and fork) with the complete SDS, including track-style dropouts, vertical derailleur dropouts, and mounting hardware.
And as if that weren't enough, it's available in 8 colors – all of which are embellished with silver-plated brass headtube badges AND fork crown medallions.
Made in the USA – The ONLY ONE is hand built in Minneapolis, Minnesota. We exclusively use U.S.-made True Temper cro-mo steel tubes. Our forks are silver-brazed with our unique investment cast crown and custom-raked blades. The Speedhound badges are silver-plated, die-struck brass.
