    New Monocog 29er for a clyde

    http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.ph...=1#post1794447

    Check out this link on the 29 board. I just bought a monocog and I'm 6'7" 315lbs

    I'll keep you posted on how well it holds up and when it breaks

    Very cool Steve!

    My first post-department-store MTB was a Trek 4500 in your same 24" frame. My boys hated the toptube in a couple of crashes but the bike served me well. Then I got hooked by the 29er bug in '03 and got an '04 GF 293 XL. Never looked back. I bought a fairly inexpensive ($395) SE Big Mama 29er last year and threw in a used 'Zoke fork and made it 1x9. It's a great backup bike and I ride it for those I-miss-my-hardtail days. Enjoy your 29er.

    Salud!

    That is awesome, I am 6'7 and close to you in weight. I too went with a 29er, but not a monocog. These 21" and 22" frame are really what guys our size need. How long have you had it, I've put around a hundred very hard miles on mine and all is well.

    I have a 04 Redline mono-cog & the frame is holding up great so far but the rims tend to give a bit when pushed hard. Right now I'm 270 down from 290
