    Monocog or GT Peace 9r?

    which one has better parts? frame? I have researched so much on the 29rs. I have decided to go on with steel frame. Any leads out there?


    thanks

    greenpoise, Where are you located? RollModels of Allen Park, Michigan is blowing out the GT Peace for around $400.00. Its an amazing deal and the Peace has a superior tube-set to the Monocog

    i was in your situation a year ago and went with a monocog from cycle therapy in kent. they got me a 2010 cog OTD for <$500 with free lifetime tune-ups. idk what size you need, but i have a 19" if you need a test ride before you buy. good luck!

    Truth is, you're looking at the $400-$500 price point, so I'm not sure how much difference you'll see in component quality. Yeah, the Peace 9r uses Reynolds 520 tubing and has Easton EA30 parts, Tektro disc brakes, etc. The Cog comes with proprietary Redline parts, so who knows if they're good, bad, or indifferent to the EA30 bits.

    The best advice is to always try riding both. IIRC, the geo. on the two is a bit different. I know the GTs have a longer-than-usual ETT. I think the Redlines are a bit shorter.

    Otherwise, I think they're both good bikes. Those who have Cogs will recommend them and vice versa.
    Enjoy the ride!

    Had a Monocog for a few years and you can't go wrong with it. I beat on that thing and had zero problems. Geo was spot on for me. I'd buy another in a heart beat.
