    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.

    One less thing that needs upgrading.
    As for the Pyramids, there is nothing to wonder at in them so much as the fact that so many men could be found degraded enough to spend their lives constructing a tomb for some ambitious booby, whom it would have been wiser and manlier to have drowned in the Nile, and then given his body to the dogs. - Henry David Thoreau

    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.
