    ShinKen,
    I'd try The Path in Tustin..... I'm not sure if they have any coming, but I know they're a strong a dealer of ours....

    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!

    Your making me nervous Redline. Hopefully my LBS guy knew what he was talking about. He said he was on the phone with you guys this morning.

    Anyone want an ACS 18t freewheel?

    ITEM DESCRIPTION

    FREEWHEEL 20T

    REAR HUB ALLOY NUT TYPE DISC 135MM CASSETTE
    I know for a fact it is a cassette hub and not a tread-on freewheel hub

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Hey Vapors,

    I set my order through Performance in San Francisco and with the "membership" card I got double points on a sale deal. Over $90 bucks in coupons to go towards some Avid mechs. Yessssssss! The shop guys here seem to have it together and Ron the buyer talks to the Seatle guys often and assured me that my order from March will get me a bike in a few weeks. The members card is a pretty good deal if you buy parts alot--especially if you can get them to special order things. My fingers are crossed.

Iv never ridden a 29er and have been convinced by various people that they are ****! is there anything that you have to change regarding riding style for 29s (Im savy on the whole SS thing). thanks,

    Good deal! Now I'm trying to figure out if I should come up with plan B since I'll likely have to wait over a month for the monocog29er. I can think of a few things to use from my current bike that I'm parting out to sell (magura marta's, race face deus stem and carbon face handle bars, easton ec90 seat post if a single speed 29 frame exists with a 27.2 seat post diameter. Sigh...

    Monocog 29er's are in the building!

    Just an FYI that the first batch of Monocog 29er's have arrived and are starting to ship out this morning. We've built one up for QC and they look great. If anybody's interested I can throw up some pics of the production sample from this morning.

    I also want to say "Thanks" for all that put in a deposit, or paid in full for something you haven't seen. I think that once it's in front of you, you'll agree it was worth the wait. Please PM me or post your opinions after you ride them.

    Thanks again,
    Craig - Redline

    Sweet that you guys are working today, its a holiday for me and some other people.

    I would like to see some actual pics if you get the chance, I'm assuming they are going to look pretty much the same as what we've seen so far.

    This is exciting even though I'm probalby not getting one out of the first batch.

    Yes, I'd love to see additional pics. I'm curious about the rear end, will it be possible to swap the bolt for a quick release? I'd also like to see how the gusset on the head tube turned out. I ended up going with the 19" instead of the 21", my favorite ballet isn't the Nutcracker so 1" clearance wouldn't do. I have to wait almost a month for mine because I'm out of town.

    mine is on the way

    despite my scare my rep said he got me one. should be here next week, but right after that I have to fly to MASS for job training on a new job (yayyy), so I won't get to ride it until 2nd week in may. But at least I got one.

    My body just hurts looking at that thing...

    I can't image riding that ball busting alloy frame in the rocks, roots, and bumps on my local trails. If I lived in Bend or some other sandy place it would be great. Regardless, an outstanding bargain for a pretty nicely equipped bike. Nice!

    The Monocog 853 version of a 26" and 29" will be in around August and manufactured/ shipped from Taiwan, not China.

    Whimp!

    I have no problem with steel alloy frames being harsh, even after several years an a titanium alloy bike.

    Your aluminum alloy full squishies must be making you soft.
