    Assuming it is new -- that is a great deal. Most 3-4 year old MC29er in good shape sell for more on Ebay.

    If you don't buy it, let me know where it is and I will!

    I got mine brand new for $350 and was excited. Jump all over that, its a great bike I ride it just as much as my $2k hardtail.

    Is it a 29er or 26? My LBS has a 26" Monocog they've had for 3-4 years at $250. I was going to buy it, but I don't really need another bike in the garage. It's a sweet deal, though. If you're wanting a decent 29er SS bike for cheap, Monocog is hard to beat. I had an 08 Monocog 29er and beat on that thing quite a bit, but it was still rock solid till the day I sold it. Still miss that bike at times.

    I wasn't guessing. I was asking you if it is a 29er or 26. You just said it was a Monocog. There is a Monocog (26") and Monocog 29er.

    And I was just saying my LBS also has a Monocog (26) for sale. Not saying that's the bike shop you were referring to.

    New for for $275 is a killer deal. I rode 'cog last year and it's a great riding bike.

    Stop over-thinking and go buy it.

    $250 Redline Monocog is a cheap bike. But it's a good bike definitely worth upgrading.

    I paid full pop list price ($499 +tax at the time) and was happy to do it. I still feel it was a bargain, with the amount of miles and smiles I got from that bike. I upgraded the crap out of that thing, and also rode the crap out of it. Best bike purchase evar for bang for the bux.

    Just out of interest bike shops in Australia sell Monocogs for $920 upwards about $800 US. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one at $275 a great deal.

    My bad reading comprehension wasn't very good today.. thought you said it was used (and yeah I figured you live in perhaps one of the Western states with a big blue lake.)

    Anyway I just got a great deal on an '11 29er Monocog. I would tell you what I paid, but I'm a little embarrassed. If you're looking for one in Colorado PM me. MSRP went up this year too.
