    Thinking of buying a '09 Monocog Flight 29er - thoughts?

    Any issues I should look for? Have found one on craigslist not far off that has a RS Toro s-lite and spd pedals included for 700.

    I've read some of the mtbr reviews and see some things about the downtube cracking? Did that include the flights/this year?

    thanks for any info you can provide folks

    edit: got it anyways - this thing is a beaut!

    I think it was the green ones that had the cracking problems.

    its been pretty fun so far - went to tubeless.

    found out during the first ride that the brake pads must have been contaminated, because when I tried to take a turn going down a descent I ended up rolling right out into the trees like I had never touched the brakes.. needless to say bike shop guy had some barely used elixir cr sl's that are now residing upon my bike .
