    Chromag Monk?

    I bought a Trek Marlin to get a taste of the SS. I love it! But obviously the Marlin is an absolutely horrible DJ'er. I like the geometry and the 29er aspect but the frame is incredibly ridged and it's not a very forgiving bike. I think it will soon see a transformation into my street pounder as I move onto a new dirt bike.

    So what do you guys think about the Monk? I read the spec sheet and I think with a 120-140mm Reba and some nice components it would be the cats meow.

    Are you looking for a straight DJ bike? It could probably handle trails but you'd need a long seat post for the climbs. If your looking for something in the middle that could handle everything look at a Santa Cruz Chameleon or Transition Trans Am. The Chromag Stylus fits the bill also.

    The Monk looks like a great DJ frame though.

    The Monk was designed for a short travel DJ fork. A 140mm fork is perfect for the Stylus.
