    Heck yeah! My LBS just called and said they could bet me the 17" MC 29er out of this second batch coming in May.

    I'm going to put down $100 bucks today and then start praying to the bicycle manufacturing gods that I actually end up with one.

    I am so pumped up!

    The fork is suspension-corrected. For semi-plush you may also just consider different handlebars. At least Ti H-Bars did that for me on my Surly.

    effectively!!

    hmmm so (suspension-corrected) does that mean I cannot put a new fork if i want some spring motion on da front?

    Anybody know standover for a 21"?

    Redline doesn't have specs on their site yet for the Monocog 29er, I ordered one anyway. I hope I have sufficent clearance...

    Actually it is online:

    http://www.redlinebicycles.com/adult...ometry-all.htm

    You need to look at the top right of the page, may have to scroll over.

    21" Monocog = 33.1" Standover. (840mm)

    That's not the 29er.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Are the 26" in aluminum and steel the same size? My shop had not even heard of them yet, and they weren't listed in his '06 book. No contact info on the Redline site or Seattle Bike Supply, so I can't email/call them. Maybe I'll try the dealer again. I was hoping the Redline poster would reply.

    At my LBS, we decided that the area labeled Monocog on the Redline site referred to the Monocog 29er. Notice the standover heights are higher on the Monocog versus the Monocog Flight. I placed my order accordingly. Now I'm just hoping I get in on the first round of bikes!

    Actually, I'm pretty sure it is the 29er dimensions. The 26" monocogs (Steel and AL) have the same dimensions - the left chart marked Flight Monocog. The right chart is definitely a different bike. Longer TT, longer wheelbase, higher BB, etc...

    Monocog Sizing

    Sorry for the confusion on our website this morning. I saw all the posts and have our Art/IT guys on it. Hopefully fixed in the next 15 minutes or so....

    The chart that shows "Monocog Flight" should say Monocog Flight/ Monocog" and the chart that just shows "Monocog" should say "Monocog 29er" (the upper right area). Looks like a few of you have figured this out. Let me know if you have any more questions....
    Thanks,
    Craig - Redline

    Ordered mine yesterday. I was told one month.

    I was pretty stoked on my buddies mono26 when he got it. Now I am super jazzed on the mono29. When I get it, I plan on being stupified... hehe.. well sort of.

    Way to go Redline! My LBS appreciated your referral greatly.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Outstanding, thanks!
    Now that I look at those numbers I'm wondering if the 21" is too big. I'm 6'2" with a 34" inseam and I always seem to be borderline L or XL with bike fit. So with the XL I've got an inch of clearance, so I suppose I'll go with that size. The local shops I've asked said this will be special order for them, so no chance to size before I ride.

    Yes, it is. The specs for every adult bike Redline makes is on that page and the quote standover is for the 29er.

    Didn't mean to add to the confusion; it was clearly not labeled correctly. Now that the website is fixed I can see you are correct.

    Trigger Pulled



    Just got back from dropping off the deposit. Now to wait for it. I'm already looking at tires and handlebars and all sorts of stuff.

    Anybody got gearing suggestions? Specs show it stock as a 32x20 but I'm thinking a smaller cog in the back would help me alot. I'm out here in Illinois, I ride in Wi and IN also most climbs are short and steep so I don't think I'll need the 20..

    I ride in Mich and ordered an 18t freewheel and some ignitors. Should be riding in a couple of weeks (hopefully).

    I used to ride in Chicagoland until I moved away last year, I had a Karate Monkey, My daily gear was 34-18, which works great at Knoch Knolls and Palos, if I was planning a long weekend in Wis Or MI I would put on 34-20, and if I was riding on the PP or LSD I would put on a 16 for some speed.

    Freewheel or cog? The Monocog wheels have a cassette hub.
