Space Chicken vs Workswell WCB-R-125?
« on: April 27, 2017, 08:31:41 AM »
I like the look of the one-one space chicken, especially the stealth dropper, but don't want to spend £800 right now.  Is the WCB_R_125 going to make me happy? See:

http://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/FROOSPCKN/on-one-space-chicken-650--700c-carbon-gravel-frameset
and http://www.workswellbikes.com/PRODDUCT/ROAD/ALL/Gravel/2017/0323/113.html

I'm a bit nervous about the custom seatpost shape, and sad this means no dropper. Has anyone actually built up one of these frames, or are there any other options I should perhaps be considering?

The On One Space Chicken definitely looks fun.

I haven't built either but I do have 2 Workswell frames that I've been happy with.

Why would you put a dropper on a road/gravel bike ? How big are your jumps with no suspension.
