    04 Redline Monocog 26"

    my first ss mtb, my dad had a older specialized hardtail that i rode a little years ago. Going to take it to local trails (beginner/moderate) and maybe switch up the tires/ratio to use it as an urban commuter. But i rather keep it set up for light trails and fun.

    Specs
    size L 2004 Redline Monocog 26"
    - Odi grips/bar ends
    - Titec Hellbent bars
    - race face progidy xc cranks
    - azonic platform pedals
    - sella italia trans am saddle
    - Interloc seapost
    - 32 x18

    Future Upgrades:
    - new front fork
    - nicer wheelset
    - spd pedals

    Odd, Left handed rear brake! Also are those Crupi pedals? Or the old Hutch Bear Traps? Man those things look nasty! Note a little bit of the bmx theme going on with that set up! LOVE IT!

    Yup, kinda have a "big kid" bmx theme going on... Not true Hutch bear traps, just a take off on the same style...When I built the bike I was going for a "budget build" and wanted a bmx theme to go along with it. Yup, left handed rear brake..just cuz.

    Sorry to hijack the OP's thread..
