    Any Info On The Mono 2:1

    I am looking for a new Downhill bike, and was wondering about the Mono 2:1.
    Does anyone know the frame weight, total build weight, and how you built it up?
    How does the bike handle?
    Any info would be great, thanks in advance!

    my frame weighs 5900 grams including shock, rear hub, axle and brakelink (small)
    total weight about 18 kgs with 888 rc3 wc, mavic 823 32h rear and mavic crossmax sx front with tubeless maxxis 2,5" tyres. fsa gravity light crankset, fsa carbon handlebar..
    19 kgs with `02 deemax, tubes and 2,5" tyres.

    the frame has held up pretty well, in comparison to my teammates who run intense m6 and cannondale judge. it is far less problems with linkage play and/or broken bearings.

    the suspension feels a bit less responsive on smaller stuff than some of the other dh bikes out there due to the platform system having a bit of sticktion, but at full throttle it handles great.

    Thanks for the info. I have an 06 fly and found the same, less responsive on smaller stuff but wide open it was great. Thanks for the info!

    It was really sticking on the ground with a dual springs shock.
    Then came the nirvana.

    The Foes Air shock boys.
    What a difference it was on trail.
    Before I was like a snake ramping on the ground.
    Now I'm a kangooroo jumping everywhere!
    Much more lively and better than the best shock it was.

    Longer shock= longer life for your bike.
    And sometime longer life to the rider.

    Check out the article on the Foes Mono (and the FXR and the Fly) in the oktober issue of DIRT magazine.
