A Gentleman and a MTBR'
2006 Flight Monocog (AL)
I just bought this bike from my LBS, I got a ridiculous deal on it (like 250) because someone bought it and returned it. What is this bike made for geometry-wise? What size suspension would be correct? Any experience with the general hardiness of the frame? It's amazingly light and fun to ride now but suspension would be nice.
I just got one too. A white one. I also paid $250. Took it for a ride a couple of days ago and surprised myself by cutting my normal time in almost half. This is going to be fun!
Geometry wise, these bikes are meant to be ridden anywhere, from technical trails to easy rides. Suspension, a normal 80mm would be correct, although I have seen people riding with 100mm. forks. The frame is very stiff, and very strong, I don't see any problems, endurance wise. It might be too stiff,compared with the chromo-ly monocog. Good luck,and have fun!
