    I'm using a Spot Brand bashguard that came with the bike when I bought it off ebay. It's to cover the 34t front chain ring I'm using. I found that for a 1x9 I hardly use the lower gears if kept a 32t so I opted for a 34t to get me speed on the flats. I recommend looking at BBG bashguards which is almost identical to the Spot Brand. I have those on my other bikes.

    more ghetto-izing da redline

    seatpost brings bike up to 29.7 lbs!!!
    NICE!
    only used for those all day epics through the rocky bits...otherwise I really like the orig. redline seatpost (if only it had some setback...if only ANYONE made a setback 27.0 that wasn't custom and $$$$)

    Thanks. I'll post more pics when I get a chance. To answer your question I bought the complete bike off eBay and replaced EVERYTHING besides the frame.

    Here's the parts list:
    Fox f29 rlc 100mm
    Stan's flow and WTB laserdisc lite
    SRAM X0 1x9 setup
    SRAM pg990 9 speed cassette
    Blackspire 34t front chainring
    XT 175mm crankset
    Thomson post and stem
    Truvativ Nior carbon low rise bar (low rise make a huge difference over the stock high rise)
    Cane creek S-2 heaset
    Avid juicy 7 brakes
    Specialized Indy saddle
    Kenda small block eights 29er

    I absolutely love this bike. I have a couple bikes including a Titus Motolite and Scott Spark. I just sold my Spark because I would rather race this bike. As for price, let's just say you'll be in boutique bike territory with the parts list. I don't think you can go wrong with the frame. That's a good deal.

    Spent the last few days scavenging around my shed and bike room for all the parts but finally scrounged up enough to put 'er back together last night. She's posted up everywhere in several different guises,from rigid mtn bike-commuter-Fox or Marzocchi fork'd mtn bike,and now a roadie/errand runner. The front rack is from Nashbar,the bar bag is from Wallymart

    From this morning's 31 degree ride to run errands in a t-shirt and shorts (with flannel jacket,LOL!)...

    Nice bike Billy B, I have an 08 D440 that has the same fork, brakes, and grips as yours. Just put a new wheelset on it too.
    Probably the earliest flyswatters were nothing more than some sort of striking surface attached to the end of a long stick.

    Thanks! I had put the deore /mavic wheels on it at the shop. Just got some Ritchey WCS bars for Christmas and robbed the Stylo's off my ss. I think that I may end up puttin a double on the front thouugh. Also in the plan is the xt shadow derralier off the 26er. I am a convert!!
    Oh yeah Thanks LHT!

I've seen a few on e-ghey for as low as $725. It might be worth that in parts...then who knows I could build up a 1x9 or something with the donor later.

    However...there are some 4-5 ft drifts of snow around my house right now so I really shouldn't be in any hurry to get my build done.

    Sorry to clutter this thread with OT. I'm just excited about my build and can't wait to post pics once it's done.

    Thanks again BH,

    We need to hurry up and get your bike built. Can't wait to see it in action. The new Fox with FIT is nice I think you've got the right start. If anything, shell out for some nice wheels everything else can wait.

    Ebay special 08 Monocog Flighter 29er. I just realized I forgot to remove the reflectors and side mirror. The previous owner thought it was a paved trail bike. The back tire is worn down too. Not a trace of dirt/mud on it. Did I mention I had to remove the kickstand?



    That's also the first time I've seen someone put bar ends on the middle of the handlebar. I might have to try it out and see how I like it. Maybe I can be a trendsetter.

    I still have my other 08 Flight 29er frame that I want to eventually build up. I might take a huge pay cut at work so I'm waiting to see if that's going to happen or not before I start spending more money on it. I just got a '10 Fox F29 FIT RLC 100mm before I heard the bad news.

    I couldn't agree more. It feels like the longest winter here in the Midwest. I can't wait to ride this Flight for awhile rigid and then decide whether to make the switch to the Fox F29.

    Today I took my first ride on my new bike. Not too much off-road but some street riding, some paved and gravel bike trails and a little mud here and there. It was certainly an interesting experience for me: 29" tires and single-speeding. I like it !! With 32x20 gearing, it's tough to go fast but it feels like I can climb a wall.

    Here are a couple updated shots from Sunday's ride. She now has a 17t Tomicog. I'm probably going to throw on the stock rear brake so I can flip-flop on longer rides:

    'New' 2008 D460 with Rock Shox Tora SL

    Still in the box, was never ridden. Rides like a dream. Added RS Tora SL. Wanted a better shock but it works great and the price was right (thank you REI dividend + 20% off).

    Added used Race Face crank to make it a 2x9.

    180mm discs are next for my baby.

    Hooked on 29er's, selling my Santa Cruz Blur XC

    What's up Anthony, it's kennyo fron the TTB site. Looks good!

    Where did you end up getting the cranks from? Now I need to decide on a squishy fork or something lighter??

    FYI, you can get those XT cranks on ebay for $150. I went with SLX ($100).

    Thanks for the heads up! After riding my Flight a couple times now I really want to drop some extra weight. I'm going to sell a few things that I don't need to fund the weight loss program for my bike...and myself.

    09 Monocog 29er‏

    I have been riding a Trek hardtail for a while now and I had no real interest in single speed or 29ers, or steel framed bikes...then after a look on craigslist...now I'm in love. I bought it as is with the BB7s and the RaceFace cranks. I can't imagine upgrading it more. It feels great now and for once my legs are getting a real workout.

    Here is my 2010 Monocog Flight 29er with a few small improvements. i'm going for the black and white/grey color scheme.
    • KMC BMX chain with white plates
    • narrower riser bars
    • ODI lock on grips
    • Avid Juicy 3's in white
    • 160mm rear / 180mm front rotors
    • Jagwire stick on alloy cable guide (stops the annoying hose on the top tube rattle)
    • Shimano XTR pedals
    • Race Face chainring bashguard
    • mount for my Garmin Edge 305

    What do you have against the white chain? I had it on my Cannondale 29er for a while and it stayed clean, the plates are white and the links are black, I think it looks hot

    I think it's just my personal issue with fixie hipsters with pink, neon green, white, etc. chains on their checkered bike frames that sees maybe 5 miles total in a month. My distaste for colored chains stems from that.

    ahh, my fixie friends actually ride their bikes. One of them has a moncog 29er that he rides fixed on the trails all the time, he's nuts though.

    Yeah, I ride my fixed road bike quite a bit. Can't seem to get into fixed mtb, though.

    Oh, and definitely wasn't saying your bike looked hipsterish. I just don't like colored chains.

    d660 On the way...

    After much deliberation I ordered a d660 today. I will post some pics when I get it, hopefully by the weekend. It will replace my trusty and seemingly indestructible (can a bike be too durable?)1995 Trek Antelope 850. I wonder if I will be able to sleep at all until I get it...

    I rebuilt my Redline so I thought I would share it here.
    I purchased this Redline Mono last year around this time. I am not a fan of red but wanted to ride rather than waste time having the bike painted or powdered. Well over the winter I got busy and never got to it so I knew over the past few weeks I would not have time to ride so I decided to break it down and change things up a bit.

    First thing I did was strip it down to the frame then I stripped the frame using Aircraft Paint remover. I was going to have the frame powder coated but didn't have the funds to do that just yet. I stripped it, sanded it then hit it with high fill primer then basecoat then clear. Came out pretty well and is rather durable.

    While I was at it I upgraded a few components as well. I upgraded the
    Saddle
    Seat post
    Bottle Cage
    Fork
    Stem
    Headset
    Bars
    Grips
    new tires

    I also got some stickers made to put on as well. So that was my little project.

    I have plans for a few more upgrades but have to wait for funds.
    This is what it looked like before I started


    And here is what she looks like now.

    Re-painted MONO

    Very nice, there was definitely too much red on it before, especially with the red fork. Cool shade of blue.

    I just buzzed around some dude's lawn tonight on a bike just like that... but he said it was a custom paint job....

    The picture by the disc golf course is funny, because this guy is really into disc golf also....



    My growler is way too empty!
    You better just go ahead and drop that seatpost down to the reflector... the trail gets pretty rough down there.

    I already switched out the saddle and post (thomson) and waiting on a black Thomson stem to arrive at the LBS.

    Rides sick!

    Another update. I am now rocking disc brake up front and installed new Jagwire Ripcord brake cables. Great cables and even better price.

    my 2008 D460 with upgraded wheels, brakes, grips, and larger volume tires. picture taken above tahoe city, ca. last weekend. i had a great time on the swoopy single track but the extended downhills with the loose chunky rocks were brutal. great times!

    WahooFish,

    I've done similar upgrades to my D460 as well. Though I put a front suspension fork on.

    Was wondering, what kind of rims did you upgrade to? Are they lighter? Stronger?

    Was enjoying Powerline trail while you were in the North Shore.

    I just picked this up a couple of weeks ago, I've already made a few upgrades (seatpost, collar, headset, stem, cranks, chainring, cog), most likely a wheelset in the future....

    I had a local San Diego shop build me a set of wheels - DT340 hubs which are laced to Sun EQ27 rims. I wanted super strong since I weigh 220 and this bike is fully rigid. I'm pretty sure these new wheels are lighter considering stock components on the D460 are not known for being light. Outstanding wheels.

    Here is my 07 Monocog 26r. I picked it up off craigslist about a month ago. It was in poor condition. There were a lot of scratches in the paint and some bad rust in a couple areas. I pulled it apart and ground off of paint with a air grinder and some of those fiber sanding discs. I also took the anodizing off the seat post since it was also scratched and badly faded.
    To clean up the look of the bike I had to get rid of those horrid v-brake posts. They are such an eye sore. Why there is an option to run both v-brakes and disc brakes baffles me. I almost added v-brakes just so I would not have to see those ugly posts. Honestly Redline, just put disc brakes on all your new models. It will save you time and money from having to weld those ugly things on there. Sorry about my rant.
    For the paint scheme I went black and silver, and I am happy with how it turned out. I took the air grinder to the center of all the tubes and gave it a cool swirl effect. Hopefully the clear coat I sprayed over these areas holds up. I don't want a bunch of chips and rust.
    For parts I upgraded everything but the wheels. I had extra bar and stem laying around and swapped them for faded factory pieces. The stock headset was worn out and replaced with a FSA Oribit MX. I almost went with the pig but I didn't want the added weight. The brakes were replaced with a BB7 180mm in the front and a older Hayes HMX 160MM off my Jamis Dakar for the rear. The cranks were next. When I got the bike it came with one factory right side crank arm, and a skinny black no name arm on the left. I ditched those for a 180mm Truvativ Racing XR BMX crankset. I picked it up from my lbs with an ISIS bottom bracket and 36tooth sprocket for $50. I am running a 20tooth rear cog and a sram 8speed chain I had laying around. The only other parts I purchased were a WTB speed v seat, Sunline lock on grips, Mosh platform peddals, and a pair of IRC Mythos II front tires. Yes, I am running two front tires. The only other thing I had to fix was the rear hub. The aluminum cone nut stripped out and needed to be replaced. If you rear wheel spins freely before you torque the axle nuts down and does not spin freely after, check the cone nuts. I thought it was the bearings but luckily it wasn't. In the end I spent a little more than I had planned but I am very impressed with how well this bike rides.

    my Monocog:
    the 2010 Monocog 26 i bought in January is far from "stock" anymore.




    slammed rear axle

    17" Mococog 26 frame
    Surly 1x1 fork
    King headset
    FSA bars
    BB7's
    Thomson post
    Mavic 517's, double-butted spokes
    Surly stainless 32t ring
    20t cog (or 18, or 16, depending on terrain)
    some old Shimano pedals
    Conti Race Kings or Kenda Kinetics/WTB Exiwolf, depending on terrain
    most of the rest is stock parts that came with the bike.


    handlebar bell!

    I really like this bike, but despite all the upgrades, it still feels like a tank. i think it's the cranks and the frame. I can't justify buying a new frame any time soon, but it feels great.
