    Not sure what year, just bought the frame, but it was matt brown with the wierd fossil graphics.
    The paint is red/gold metalic lacquer over a black base, rattlecan job but I like it and it seems robust.

    The stock paint yer describing is an '07,methinks (someone who owns one could correct me if wrong ). If you did the rattlecan job (or to whoever did),it definately looks great!!! I wish the rattlecan jobs I'd done in the past looked so good. Nice job on it. These are great bikes,riding and lasting much longer than the price of entry would suggest,it'll be yer best friend for years

    Just a random observation.... Your 07 flight project has been going on since '07! any intentions of getting that wrapped up this decade? You're going to be able to put antique plates on it before too long.

    Actually,yer observation's a bit off on yer time table,I've only owned it a few months according to my paypal account info. But yeah,it got drawn out much longer than intended...Shortly after buying it,I went from earning $7-800 per week to my boss paying me $400 per week for a couple months while they were "waiting for parts" for the truck,and then the next month my pay was about that as I paid em back,then last month due to problems with an 8 year old spinal injury (broken neck in 2001 ),D.O.T. indefinately suspended my CDLs,and since just before Christmas,I've been under a Doc's care (and more recently began therapy 3-5 times per week) and off the bike...and normal living.

    Since I've not been able,or allowed to work,my wife's at the 1/2 mark of being a full time student,and trying to work a low paying job (all she could find,and her boss isn't even paying her for all her hours we're finding out) while trying to pull a mandatory 240 intern hours at a local hospital......it's indefinately on hold. I guess I should change the sig

    Since it's 99.5% certain we've lost the house,and all that that entails,it's actually for sale (cheap),and I've sold the wheelset already. I just couldn't resist blowing the $ for the wheels and a little of the tax check on upgrades for the d440,tho (we budgeted a set small amount we could each spend,since we hadn't been able to for months).

    Of course,put-near everything in life is temporary,and by summer things will have become more stable,as she'll be graduated and working at the same hospital (but not for free/internship),and I'll either be released to work (doubtfull) or "drawing",so other than a few weak moments,we're trying to be content in our boat,just like Paul in prison (Biblical...despite how I behave sometimes,that's been my most read book for years ). Hey,but don't worry,my Doc is not only pro-cycling (as is my physical therapist),but she's known me long/well enough to know how important to me riding is...She says I may not be riding as "hard core" (wife's words) as I used to,as fast paced,or hit anymore 2-5' drops,etc,but in her edumicated opinion,I'll eventually be back riding to regularly,so it's all good. So if nobody buys it/all of it,when the day comes,it'll go back into the "project" file

    Besisdes,I likes them antique tags-LOL!

    LOL! Iknow,Bro But you were right on the sig,I'd meant to update it,but forgot .

    And it will. I couldn't prevent the injury way back when (co-driver wrecked me as I slept),but most of the probs I mentioned I'm goin thru coulda been prevented,if I weren't so dang stubborn (who me? ). It's all good,tho,I'd much rather be here than where I was before the injury...I was a pretty low form of life in most aspects of it back then. I'm much better for it now (we need a smilie of one rolling in the floor laughing ). And don't worry,I won't let my current situation turn into a Lifetime (TV for women) movie here-LOL!

    I was considering it. I then crept up on a screaming deal on an '08 flight 29er frameset that I wound up building (at a much greater cost than I intended... ). I've turned my d440 into a commuter now and am probably going to eventually put an RST M-29 on my Flight... But I have several projects around the house I need to get wrapped up before I can justify pumping more money into that bike.

    A museum piece...

    While visiting my inlaws we took the kids to a local children's museum. These Redlines powered a little computer simulation of a bike rider riding along the road. Unfortunately, they were just a little too big for him to pedal well...

    Got my mail order parts in today,and a call from the LBS confirmed the parts from there came in today too (now it's just a matter of getting down there,looks like next Tuesday or Thursday). Mail order parts: One sweet Vassago ODIS fork,1 pair of fat (compared to the stock Nanos,anyways) pair of Exiwolf's.

    sweet. my wheelset arrives tomorrow - that's all i'm waiting for at this point.
    once i get that 'em i can get a better idea how many spacers im going to need under the stem and whack some of the steerer off. and crank the calipers down. going to have to shorten the rear brake line but its not bad and can certainly wait.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    So far I -really- like this fork. Its very plush - I'm not hearing the clicking yet thats been problematic with the 08's so we'll see if I need the fix kit or not. Still have to play with the settings more - probably going to drop 10 or 20 psi from the fork and give that a shot. The handling is quick, but not too quick. Slow technical stuff is still easy to handle and it doesn't feel overly twitchy.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    I'd wondered about that on those forks,from what I'd read. I guess it's moot for me now tho,since I ordered a better riding rigid fork (just need to install it now),so I'll be riding that this year anyhow. Thanks for the quick reponse =)

    Nice addition with the fork! I'm thinking of putting a ODIS (or maybe a Salsa) on my mono29. I hear the ODIS offers a V-Brake option. I'm not sure if I want to keep the V or go with a disk up front!? The fork looks so nice I think I would hate to put a V-Brake on it....! Argghhh, decisions!

    Did you install it yourself? How noticeably different is the weight from the stock fork? Any thoughts on what you might use for cable guides up front?

    Firstly,thanx for the flowers!

    Secondly,I really have no idea about the V-brake option,but I have a friend whom I just found out is a Vassago dealer,I'll email him and ask (soon as I type this).

    I could've,but since I was alreay gunna be at an LBS,I just let him install it. Holding each fork in one hand at the same time,the weight loss was definately noticable! His scales showed between 3/4,and 1 pound difference in the ODIS's favor. As far as cable guides,I hadn't done it yet (I've had a small non-raining photo window since yesturday),but I was planning on falling back on one of Man's greatest acheivements....the good ole ziptie . May not be right for some guys,but it's fine by me

    I highly recommend the guys/gals at Vassago,they were super people to deal w/,and that includes the friend I mentioned. When I get an answer about the V's,I'll post and PM ya.

    Foxtrot,
    No the ODIS can't be ordered w/ brake bosses for V's. He said just that he knows of (may be more) the following can: Surly,Origon 8 Carbon,Vicious Cycles,Voodoo,custom,and obviously Redline forks.

    I dunno which ones he sells,BTW. Hopethishelps =)

    Thanks a bunch for looking this up for me. It looks like I might have to go "mullet" on my mono. I really don't want to go through the cost and trouble of adding a disk to the back wheel, plus I am perfectly fine with v-brakes.

    The ODIS looks perfect on your bike!! I was never a huge fan of the color of the 08 D440, but with a shiny black fork I am!

    I will post a pic of my mono after I cash my tax return and get my fork situation resolved. Thanks again!

    foxtrot... mullet is the way to go... my karate monkey is running mullet and it works very well... I highly recommend bb7's... and while your at it spend the $25 for some avid SD7 levers... makes the tunability of the mullet setup nice.

    crypwhisper... looks good man ... always a sucker for carbon

    More nice RL's!


    I will have to post an updated one of my D440 soon. I finally ditched the bar ends and added the new chainring, bashguard, eggbeaters, etc.

    Debating on getting rid of the wheel reflectors although I do a good deal of commuting... Maybe I will have some action shots in a few weeks when we take the bikes down to TN for a little spring get away.

    Debating on getting rid of the wheel reflectors although I do a good deal of commuting... Maybe I will have some action shots in a few weeks when we take the bikes down to TN for a little spring get away.

    forgot to add I will be tossing some bontrager big sweep bars to replace the risers.

    We will be going to Panther Creek state park and hitting the trails there outside of Jefferson city. We are actually staying pretty close to pigeon forge, etc. I will try and ride the "discburner" track... pics located near the bottom of the page.

    Whoa!!! Small world,dude At the time I proposed to my lovely wife (back in '92),she was living in Morristown (or was that Moorestown? one was "burg",one was "town"),and we lived there for 6-8 months after getting hitched. Both are spitting distance from Jefferson City. I haven't been back since we moved out,but I remember Panther Creek. Didn't do any riding there back then,but did lotsa hiking. That's only about 2.5-3 hours from me! When ya going?

    we will be down there from the 23rd-25th for sure. Might be there from the 21st-25th as I have those days free as well and I cant imagine I would want to sit around here and do nothing.

    Here are some updated pics. 2008 D440, Bontrager 12* big sweep bars, sram X.7 twist shifter, Bontrager switchblade race fork, Truvativ 40 tooth chainring, E.thirteen bash guard, egg beaters, old CODA saddle I had, cateye and a BB7 up front- mullet style.








    close up of the bars to get an idea of how much sweep they have:


    And finally, an obligatory pic of me cleaning the mud out of the tires with a toothbrush so I can take it inside. (pay no attention to my after-ride foot attire)

    ahhh yes.. the quest never ends I definitely need to throw the redline grips in the trashcan and put something else on. Those things are turds. I tried out the ergon grips at the NAHBS and they DO feel super comfy. I may make the plunge this summer on those.


    Out of curiosity, do you guys think I have too much seatpost showing? The bike fits me fine right now and I have no complaints, but I am wondering if my bike is telling me to get a larger frame. I posted the same question in the 29er forum, so disregard if you answered it there.
