    Great looking bike. This is the kind of bike people should buy as a first MTB. Inexpensive, durable, fun and above all simple. Nice job Redline. .

    I like that pinstriping look.

    What type of finish is it exactly?

    It's a Matte finish with a small amount of gloss to give it a slight sheen.... then the graphics are water type decal.... when applied, it's almost impossible to see any trace that would make it look like a decal.... it's definetely pretty cool.

    I apologize for the quality of the pictures... tried to take some out side but would have gotten all wet... gotta love Seattle

    Drool....Craig, you're teasing us here and I'm getting itchy just looking at the bike. My question is what the gap size is for the front fork and stays in the back. Wondering what the widest tire size could be. And if anybody like Shiggy or Cloxxi know what tires would fit. I want to run a fatty in the front for the spring mud. Thanks all.

    The Mc ships with the Exiwolf, the widest tread currently available. A couple of tires are slightly taller. I see plenty of room the the bigger tires yet-to-come.

    Inside fork leg clearance at the tire is 88mm, no problem for wider. Current rear stay design has 5-6mm clearance from widest point of knob to the inside of chain/seatstays with an Exi 2.3 installed.

    From what I've been told we are completely sold out of the first batch which will hit here in Seattle tomorrow morning. Another wave will hit about 10 days later with those all spoken for. Hopefully we'll have few extras when the next batch hits at the end of May.

    Good luck!

    Sure they didn't look up the Monocog Flight or some other model?

    That, or the shop wants one for himself for free.

    I suggest you talk to the shop that took your money. If you thought it was less expensive, why place an order with a quote you don't trust? Don't forget to mention 29 29 29 29. Shops can miss that part easily.

    Ordered a monocog 29er yesterday at my LBS. MSRP $469.00 if anyone is curious. Hopefully it will be here soon. I should find out Monday when the bike will arrive and will keep everyone posted.

    Captaind,
    I'm keeping the Monocog 853 somewhat tight lip'd until I have the samples in my hand later this month. I can say it's going to use a mix of chromoly's including a Reynolds 853 front triangle. As we get a little closer I'll release more information. From what I have seen so far, it's looking pretty sweet......Stay tuned.
    Thanks for your interest.

    Hey everybody!

    I have a 26'' monocog, which I love, and I'm itching to get a 29er. My problem is this: I'm 5'9.5'', 190, and my other monocog is a 15'' frame (I think). I got it on the small side so when I stood over it, I'd have better control by being over the rear wheel. All of my other geared bikes have been 17". So do I go for the 15" or the 17"? I'm quite confused. Thanks.

    By the way...how do I tell what size frame my other 26" is? That should help me decide.

    Well hell.... my local bike shop (Bikers Ect, Bossier City, La) has had 4 of these bikes on order since Jan or Feb and as of today they haven't gotten a single one.

    What gives?

    I am not a fan of the BMX-style fork. I know this is from Redline's past, but I'd prefer a Kona Project 2 style fork myself. Just my 2 cents.

    Not much difference actually. Both are Cromo non-tapered unicrowns about the same diameter. The Redline uses a small offset plate dropout vs the P2's forged tip. Reports are the Mc's fork is fairly light, too.

    This (<= link) was not good enough for you?

    The suggested retail is $469.99. Your LBS can charge whatever they want.

    I do not remember the 26" MSRP but it is around $450.

    Just curious, but I would have expected a deposit placed January 18 on a MC 29'er to have assured delivery in the first batch? Is that not the case or is my LBS covering a screw up on his part? I am now being told end of May for delivery!

    I believe it is not when you placed your order with your LBS but when they placed it with Redline.

    Because there is/was more demand than supply in the first shipment each shop was limited to one of each size (maximum) from this first shipment but there still are not enough for every shop to get one.

    This is a very similar situation to the first shipments of the Salsa Delgado Disc rims.

    I ordered mine in mid-January also. Not sure the of the exact date. I know the owner ordered it from Redline the same day, and mentioned that the Redline sales rep. said supply was VERY low then. I ordered a 21", which I bet made a difference.

    BTW, I paid $530 total for mine. I didn't try to get a deal, I knew it was a special order for him because all he sells is bmx and I was just happy to get one.

    thanks guys. I suspected the LBS delayed his order to redline. I tried to impress upon him the apparent demand for this bike but I guess he didn't have the same sense of urgency I did. At least he is still holding to the $469.

    I just talked to the LBS today and my bikes tracking number will be here on Friday. I have part of it here already waiting on the bike... brakes and no bike.... so Saturday they will meet up together...

    I ordered mine a tad over a month ago... the shop I think ordered 4 of them and mine was the only one that has made the first shipment there. Thank goodness!

    Mine's Here!!!

    Well...was at Sea Otter the other week...
    saw the 29er at the Redline booth, liked it.

    called my local shop, and ordered last week.
    AND IT'S FREAKIN' IN!!!!!
    we weren't sure what size to get so he ordered a 17" and a 19". Only the 19" came in.

    they are breakin' it down today and rebuilding everything cause that's what they do for their customers.

    gonna go get her tomorrow after work!

    not really sure what to expect since i never owned a SS or a 29er before. but i figured may as well combine the 2 and give it a shot!

    now if i can shake this cold...i'll get to take her for a ride this weekend!

    not really sure what to expect since i never owned a SS or a 29er before. but i figured may as well combine the 2 and give it a shot!

    now if i can shake this cold...i'll get to take her for a ride this weekend!
    I was in the same boat as you - not sure whether I needed a 17 or 19. I ended up ordering the 19. Not sure when it will be here. If you could let us know what are your height/inseam and how the 19 fits, that would be cool.

    well... my LBS started breaking it down and asembling it today... the brakes are suposed to come tomorow witch means that I will be going on an evening ride with it tomorow! too bad they didnt get here today... I just got back from a 3 hour ride with a bunch of racers on full suspension bikes... I was on my cyclocross bike for some of the narliest root infested single track around! It was friken AWSOME! although I am supprised that the bike held up... I could have used some disk breaks and fat tires seeing as it was muddy.

    Not to rub salt in the wounds of those who didn't get their bikes yet, 'cause I feel for you but... I got my 19" yesterday and I love it! Redline did an amazing job of creating a quality looking and feeling bike for pennies. We'll see how it holds up, but I'm not going to replace anything but the pedals and possibly the tires (the tires rock but for climbing? I don't know).

    For what its worth, the bike weighs 28.5 lbs and the 19" fits my 34" inseem quite well.

    Great first post Chuck, welcome to the forums and thanks for the weight info! Is that with the stock pedals installed?

    It's getting time for the first purchased-Monocog 29er pics to surface...
