The wait was long but it's paid off. Designed for a fast aggressive trail rider that wants to keep the wheels on the floor to maintain speed and benefit from the larger wheel size.
The chrome-moly used is Onza's "Flawless" 4130. Onza did not take the task lightly of finding a frame maker that met our premium standards. Snake skin welds and super light tubing are key elements when producing a frame of this calibre.
The Payoff has undergone electrodeposition (Not on Acid Bath Version) which helps eliminate the frame rusting from the inside out. 27.2mm seat post maintains the comfort every steel rider wants and it also gives its traditional slim tubing sleekness.
Starting from the front of the bike you will find we have used a very pronounced tapered head tube. Going against the grain we felt that the main benefits of this were that you really could get the front end slammed. Giving it a unique and distinctive look, all topped off with brazing on the distinctive Onza "O".
Moving down towards the BB area you will find us opting for a PF30 bottom bracket. The reason for this is we will be introducing an eccentric PFBB allowing you to convert any of our frames into a single speed rig.
Just past the BB we have produced a super responsive and stiff 1 piece yoke. This really gives the bike its identity while riding it. Steel can be lovely to ride given its playful "ping" and "zing" but it can also lose some of its response. The 1 piece yoke eliminates this negative and gets the most out of every down stroke.
CNC machined bolt thru 12mm rear dropouts complete the frame, supporting the forged yoke at the BB via snaked forged stays.

"The Onza is still the most naturally rowdy, ‘pop the front wheel, slide the back end, launch that drop, make the most of every metre of trail’ bike here by a big slice anyway and the frame-only and custom build options let you wring maximum potential out of this top-quality trail ripper."
