    Picked this up yesterday. Felt good on the short ride I was able to take it on today. The graphics on the paint look much better live than in this photo. Dropped the chain once at the beginning of the ride , but later found that the jump stop had moved out of position.

    Just ordered mine...
    I just ordered one of these. I'm planning on using it as a mucky weather bike...one i don't care about if it gets totally filthy.

    Any other ride impressions to share? Likes? Dislikes? How are the wheels?

    I'm upgrading the brakes to Avid bb5s, and changing the cockpit to race face stuff I have lying around in teh basement. Other than that, I'm gonna leave it stock until something breaks.

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately for me the trails have been pretty wet since I bought it , so I really don't know exactly how everything is going to feel. The only off-road riding was the couple miles I did the first day out.However, I have put about 30 road miles on it and like what I feel so far. The bars are a bit wide at a little over 27" , so I might cut them down a little. I'm the wrong guy to tell you about the quality of the wheels and stuff because the bike I was riding before was about ten years old , so it all feels good to me.I like the rigid fork because that's what I'm used to and I think you'll find the standard V brakes it comes with work very well. The 8 speed is perfect but, you might want to get some softer grips.

    Monocog 29er - stock, for now. Immediate plans call for clipless pedals and losing the reflectors, but little else for awhile. Maybe discs in a year or two. I absolutely love the simplicity of this bike.

    You all know what these look like stock, so here's a pic of it's maiden "bike path" voyage with my little future mtb'er. :thumbsup: Will be hitting the trail with it soon, hopefully with the friend that bought my old Hardrock Comp Disc.

    i think that anthem of yours is going to be jealous:D its not going to get much use anymore. i sold my full squish 26 a few months after i got my monocog last summmer.
  • 03-24-2008

    The Anthem does look a bit greener than I remember...I can already tell the Monocog will be a blast to ride. My short ride through the parking lot made me feel like I transported back to being a 9-year-old with my first cool BMX bike.

    Funny thing is my wife came up with the idea for the Monocog all on her own after the Anthem suffered a few recent mechanical issues (toasted a bottom bracket and snapped a pivot bolt after 9-months of ownership). She wanted me to have a second bike that was fun to ride, was relatively low maintenance, and could hold up to as much abuse as I could throw at it.

    she picked the right one.

    they are a lot of fun to upgrade. you can do as much or as little as you want. i would recomend some bars with some sweep like the space bar, mary, luv handle, etc. they make hammering up hills more enjoyable for me.
  • 03-25-2008

    Not sure what I'll do with the bar. They do seem a bit wide compared to the bar on my Anthem (I hacked approx 1-inch off each side of the stock Easton). Guess I'll get a few rides under my belt and figure out where to go from there. I'm kind of leaning towards a carbon bar though.

    Little off the farm here but she's still a REDLINE! First BMX machine in 18 years. Couple shots of the new steed below.

    Picked her up tonight from the shop, made some minor adjustments (removed reflectors, adjusted seat, adjusted bars and gave everything the once-over) and took her out for a little rip (2.5 mile ride). First impression: This thing is light as a feather, smooth as glass, pedals effortlessly, handles incredibly well, looks like $1MM, brings back vivid memories of riding BMX as a kid and wheelies just like my old Mongoose Expert circa 1988 - 1990 (back when Gooses were bike shop bikes). At one point I was cruising down a suburban neighborhood street with the sun just setting and I pulled one up and rode it for approximately 50 yards when I had to finally reel in the rear brake due to near flippage. Do I like the bike better than my TREK 6500 all-mountain race setup? Ehhhh, tough question...real tough question... They're both extremely capable at what they were designed for and both exhibit incredible quality and craftsmanship. I'll enjoy years and years and years of solid use out of each. There's a local track that hosts a lot of races and I'm thinking about getting back into the fray. I have 3 kids and they're all into riding so it's great to be back on a BMX machine, which is what they ride. Pretty happy camper right now on the pedaling front.

    Let me know what you think:

    Here is my old Flight - I got it via a buy it now ebay auction as a frame and fork combo and built it up from parts I had laying around and stuff I bought via the mtbr.com classifieds. I really liked it, but wasn't able to keep it for long. I miss it a bit:





  • 04-16-2008

    I sold my 26" FS frame, fork and another frame then embarked on my Ebay journey to piece together this work of art. Purpose - to replace my commuter bike (circa 96 Raleigh M60, my first MTB), serve as a CX candidate if I do that again and pull duty as a loaner for my Dad when he comes to visit. It also was a place to use most of the parts I'd taken off other bikes and had cluttering up my bike shelf.

    Behold - the palate of color and majesty that is below:

    - 2007 21" Monocog Flight frame (ebay)
    - 2008 Monocog Flight fork (ebay)
    - worn out Maxxis Crossmark rear / worn out Bontrager Dry X front (this thing's abrasion resistant sidewalls provide enough strength to run low pressures and make the rigid feel not so rigid) - sourced from my tub-o-tires
    - Truvativ Stylo 1:1, 180mm, taken from my Sultan
    - Titec H-bar with the front position cut off, saving 60 grams for those weight weenies who care (I was more interested in removing excess material so maybe I could get away with riding these in a CX event) - used these on my old Rook
    - Thomson stem from old Rook
    - Hayes brakes w/ V7 front/V6 rear rotors, orange Danger Boy levers, taken from my old 26" full suspension
    - Mavic A317s and XT hubs, ebay find, but new items
    - Selle Italia saddle, ebay
    - Thomson seatpost - ebay
    - pewter King headset, from old 26" FS bike

    About the only things I bought from a store for this build was an N-gear jumpstop (it's going to end up 1x9 for commuting duty) and the green Salsa liplock.

    Broken in...
    Yesterday I took it out on it's maiden voyage.



    A friend and I tried a trail near campus and found it still too wet to ride (trying to be good trail stewards by NOT riding on a wet trail). It's not surprising that it was still wet, given that it's mostly flat.

    So, we tried the only other trail in town - a very hilly and technical trail. By my standards anyway...

    It's was remarkably dry, save for a couple of drainaige crossings where the dip was a bit wet and muddy. 99.5% of the trail was bone dry. I came off the bike twice, both times in those little muddy dips. A little too much for the 29's perhaps...

    Overall I was thrilled at how well the bike did. I may be yet another victim of the rattling headset issue though. I need to ride it a little more to be sure that's where the noise is coming from.

    A couple of improvements I plan to make based on her maiden trail ride:

    - Disc Brakes: I miss disc brakes, so that may come even before clipless pedals
    - Clipless Pedals: I slipped off the pedals once and the seat hit pretty hard, well, um, there. Ouch.
    - QR for the seat post. See above. I really should have lowered it a bit, but left the tool in the Jeep. Also, since I throw the bike in the back of the Jeep, the wheel and seat need to come off each time I transport it. A pain without QR.
    - A better GPS mount. Homebrew just couldn't cut it.
    - Lose weight. About 20 lbs. That would be off of me, not the bike. :madmax:

    Overall I'm pleased with the bike. Never once did I wish I had a lower or higher gear, which was probably the biggest concern I had initially, especially with the hills. We probably tackled too technical a trail for as little riding as we've done so far this year, but when it's all you have to choose from, you take what you can get.

    looks very familiar ... i am rollin' 1x9 and some squish also.

    I would suggest a bash guard, and jumpstop, especially if you aren't running a short cage derailer.

    i dropped a few chains, and one got sucked into my rear cassette and the derailer was shredded into 3 parts. added a jumpstop and bash, and now i can ride through the roughest stuff out there with no issues.

    The MC26 has had a lot of changes and will soon be some strange 4 or 5 geared monster. The 29er is pretty much stock right now, except for the Ninja.

    Here's my new D660 in 21"
    It just arrived the other day. I have two rides on it so far and love it. I came from a 2007 Giant Anthem 2 fully slung machine so I wasn't sure if I could go to a hard tail. Twenty-Nine inches of rolling stock have made me a believer.

    heh, I'm the motor! That big hub is a Nuvinci CVPT internal transmission. They are 2.35 Big Apples and I love them but I'll be switching to 2.0 Marathon Supremes in a couple of months after riding the Big Apples for 1.5 years now.


    here's the latest pics with rack, waterproof panniers, and fenders. I have since added a Axiom Hudson trunk bag. I think I'm done adding stuff to it, for now...

    2008 Redline Monocog 29er 2x9 hybrid
    Compilation of:

    2008 Redline Monocog 29er
    2007 Redline Mono 9
    2006 Redline Monocog 29er


    So I had to do it!

    I liked the Mono 9, but I liked the frame angles and feel of the Monocog 29er SS more!

    So here's the result from combining a new 2008 Monocog 29er frame with parts from the other bikes and some other parts.

    how did you get the derailleuer hanger on there?


    here is the latest incarnation of mine.

    upgrades include
    eno crankset
    avid bb7s
    vassago odis fork - doing the 1st ride on this over the weekend.
    thompson post
    and i am back to a more traditional bar after snapping my origin 8 space bars in two. my next upgrade will probably be a boone cog.

    CA1976:

    I used an old school steel derailer hanger from an old Ross bicycle I had in the shop and machined it a bit. As a stop so the axle wouldn't slide forward under power on the cog side I put a little nut in the slot of the chainstay that's held in by the skewer. I also placed an old school chain tensioner(tugger) on the opposite side, and used a bolt on skewer.

    I will try to get close up pics of this stuff, but remember it's really old school and jerry rigged for now just to see if it works like I thought it would. If all goes well I'm going to machine little pieces to fit the chainstay slots to keep the rear wheel aligned and epoxy them in. This way the wheel will be back a bit, but still give me the shortest chainstay position with the wide tire.

    I like your set up does it climb well?

    thanks. i tested the fork yesterday afternoon, and i was very impressed. i think it climbe really well. i also put some new tires on yesterday that had me feeling glued to the trail. i think i am finally getting used to the more traditional bars which helps. for the first year or so i rode it with a space/mary bar. after breaking the bar in two, i am a little afraid of bendy aluminum bars.

    here's my little friend
    These are old images but, I can't remember how to downsize the pics to fit the parameters... the first is stock and the second is how I turned it into a commuter for the winter. i am now working on putting the drop bars on for singetracking. Got a sorta high rise stem. Interested to see if the bars give enough leverage for climbing...

    kool commuter digs!when i actually worked close enuff to home to be possible to ride to work last year,i did up my '04 26er monocog w/ slix,rack/trunk,and lights and rode it to n fro too!let us know how the drops do off road...w/ a set of cross tires,wouldn't that be like a monster cross bike?i had been tinkering w/ that idea myself.sometime betweenst now and spring,i'm lookin to buy a monocog 29er (i ride the d440-my 1st 29er-so much i don't wanna go back,but i have the SS itch...my 26er needs a partner),but had been curious about the whole monster cross thing,but wanted to do it on the cheap (in case i didn't like it+i dig functional yet inexpensive),so i may would buy a second one used.....uh,sorry so long winded,but that's why i wuz asking =)

    monstercross
    Hey LHT-hey I did the monstercross thing last year by leaving the mtb tires on and adding the drops with the stem that is pictured in the commuter pic. That stem doesn't have the rise to use for singletrack but it worked pretty well for cross. I only did one race-I had to go check out the WWCXWC in Portland last year and figured I should try it, I raced the beginner group. That was a ton of fun. I used a 32:16 ratio. Very cool. I hope to more of the same this fall.

    I would highly recommend the MC29er. How can you go wrong?

    keep em rolling

    Here's my 2007 Monocog 29er. All stock except for the brakes, levers and grips. I put on some Ergon grips, Avid FR-5 levers and a Deore V in the rear and an Avid SD-7 on the front. I actually like the feel of the Deore better than the Avid so I am going to swap ou the front to Deore also. Love the way the bike rides on my rooty trails. It doesn't want to turn as well as my 26 but really enjoying it.

    I'm new to 29ers but am looking to buy the Redline monocog. I'm not sure if I should build up a frame with spare parts I have, or just buy the complete bike.

    Anyway I have a spare set of XTR v-brakes and XT levers, will those fit or do 29ers take some special brake?

    What kind of riding do you do, in what kind of climate and how does the Brooks hold up? Looks great in the photo. Just wondering if it is sensitive to water/mud?

    sorry it took me so long to see this...this site is sooooooo slow on my last century pc w/ dial up,i shy away from this particular thread (took me almost 26 minutes to see it...ugh),a new pc/hi-spd coming soon tho:thumbsup:

    anyhoo,thanx for the info.nope,nobody could go wrong w/ a monocog (new '08's were sellin for only $450 at my lbs!).i plan on gettin a new one by spring.nothing wrong w/ my old one,but after riding the d440 almost exclusively since june,i'm hooked on 29ers:thumbsup:

    Alpka,

    I ride mostly southern sandy single track in South MS and red clay single track in West TN when I'm up there. The brooks is awesome. It is sensitive to water/mud. But it's been so dry this summer, that I haven't had much of a problem with it. I do carry a plastic grocery bag in my camelback to tie over it incase of a gully washer, lol. I've got the bottom coated with wax, proofide. It's a very comfortable saddle. The leather squeaks a bit and it is heavy as a brick, but I can literally ride all day without a complaint from my rear end.

    There's a tread discussing the pros and cons on the 29er forum. It seems, you either love it or hate it. No middle ground.
