    It's true! (no Klein content, other end of spectre)

    Who needs overpriced bling if you can get...

    Craig of Redline Bicycles just let me know they'll be offering a Monocog 29er, complete bike, for MSRP $450!
    ETA March, how about that?

    Ask me nothing, it's all I know. Sounds way cool to me. I hope they'll mkake lots of them, in lots of sizes.

    Wow!

    $450?!? That's insane! I wonder what kind of parts that'll have on it - methinks they might be aiming a little *too* low there, even for a single - if it's built with Alivio-level junk, it might turn a lot of folks off.

    Then again, decent stuff is crazy cheap these days - you can get Chinese aluminum frames, shipped across the Pacific with your decals on 'em for $30 each, or so I'm told. That's great news for folks on a budget, or who don't want to drop big bucks into trying out this 29er thing.

    dirt cheap one speed

    well, component spec shouldn't be so much of an issue, since it's a one speed. their 26" monocog runs anywhere between $450 and $600. they offer a pretty solid, basic bike.

    but yeah, that's mighty cheap...

    alivio junk?

    Hey, I didn't know any better at the time, and I was quite happy with the Alivio junk on my '96 Klein. Actually had to mess with it less than the XT 9speed stuff, it seems. I keep thinking about going back to 7 or less. things were less fussy those days...

    I tried to directly translate from the Dutch "Spectrum". Maybe it's more French than English?
    It means something like gamma (not exactly ENglish either). My dictionary just told me that I need not change any letters in spectrum...

    Cloxxki, spectrum is what you want, as in, from the other end of the spectrum. Gamma would be understandable to speakers of French: gamme, meaning range of possibilities. Spectrum means the same thing, borrowed from the study of light. A spectre is an intangible entity that haunts or troubles ones peace of mind. Your English is great. Give 'em heck.
