    ordering a 29r ss!!!

    After searching and searching the forums in here i am going to order a kona unit. I just had a couple of questions before ordering it... later on if i do decide i dont want a rigid bike can i swap out the fork with a shock? is that easy to do with the unit? I also was looking at a haro ally for a hundred bucks less are they easier to work on or what? I have never owned a ss 29r i have just road a friends bianci ss.
    Thanks for your time

    Inexpensive frame and you can run a 80mm suspension fork no problem.

    Single again.

    Than you'd do well to grab it. My LBS just told me that when the '09 Redlines come, in a few months, they'll be "20-25% higher, with some downgraded parts..." (direct quote). Can you spell 'stagflation'?
    The Monocog is a pretty bombproof bike, and you can always upgrade parts as you go.
    Saddle, seatpost, brakes probably the places you'll want to start...

    i think the 09s will be available in a few weeks, not months. they are already up on redline's website. they appear to have the same specs as previous years. as for the prices going up about 20% that is true, and it will be industry wide. the increase is to cover rising costs in materials, shipping, energy, etc.

    as for the monocog, they are a real solid bike. i have been upgrading mine since i got it. i actually upgraded the frame the other day to something a little lighter. shameless plug: my 07 mono frame, headset and fork are for sale. i still have the orignal wheels, and they are bomb proof.
