    Monocog 29er

    The production bikes are due next week!

    This is the 17" pre-production bike

    I took it for a very short spin. Felt nice and I liked the fit. Should be spot-on with my dropbars.

    Monocog

    Thanks Shiggy.

    Love the stealth black look. Hopefully it will be the production color as well.

    Thanks for stopping by the Redline pit today Shiggy!

    The Redline Monocog 29er will be on display throughout this weekend at the Sea Otter Classic just in case others want to check it out in person.

    What cranks will come on the production. Was planning to upgrade them until I heard Truvativ might be one there. Thanks.

    or do the 17" here and the 19" on the website look almost exactly the same? Maybe it's just a camera trick deal.

    Do they make a size smaller than 17"? Shiggy, would you go with the 17" frame because of your preference for a long stem and drop bars?

    I would prefer a slightly longer stem on the stock 17" I rode but I did not feel cramped at all.

    I guessed the 17" would fit me based on the ST angle and the ETT length (which is the same as the 19" Monocog 26er). I was right.

    I'll be patiently waiting to hear feedback on this bike. I'm selling my Turner Burner and looking for a single speed 29er. Can't wait!

    I asked Mike today. RPM is mainly an OEM component manufacturer. Good basic parts at a good price.

    RPM components are entry level cranksets from FSA (Th Industries - Taiwan). We've been running them on the 26" Monocogs for 4-5 years with no reports of any problems. Good stuff and affordable.

    Monocog 29er sizes are 15,17,19 and 21".

    Is the front wheel on the 29 a Q/R or bolt on style? Just wondering... I'm hoping to receive mine by the end of next week.... and it is disc brake ready right... the set of Avids I have laying here need nothing else (except new cables and housing) to get going...

    Thanks

    I think its quick release based on the end of the axle in the picture.
    I'm waiting for mine too, ordered in San Francisco week and a half ago (19").
    Its beginning to feel a bit like Christmas.

    FF,
    The front wheel uses a QR and both F/R hubs are disc ready. Monocog 29er's WILL hit us this week. We'll do a quick QC and start to ship immediattly there after.

    Thanks,

    Banzai,
    I have heard of some shops not wanting to stock 29er's on their floors yet, big bummer....

    If you tell me where you are, I can point you in best direction to get one. Any shop that sells Redline Bicycles can order for you. Let me know.....

    monocog 29er lost at sea?

    It seems as though the monocog 29er has not arrived into port in seattle. According to seattle bike supply the ship is still out to sea. I hope the name of the ship was'nt the titanic.. anyway I guess they will be here when the get here.What is it they say about a watched pot never boils..bikerdad36

    I really hope Redline does well with this bike because they've got such a significant sentimental history for anyone who rode BMX through the years. Who didn't lust after a set of Redline Flights, right? Good on them for breaking out what looks to be a great 29er ride at a great pricepoint.
