    '04 Monocog

    I heard that the '04 Monocog (steel) has a disc mount. Is that the case, or is only the aluminum one disc-ready?

    Where can I get an '04 steel Monocog frame? I'm seeing the great deals on the '03, but I want the disc mount, if available.

    Has anyone built one of these as a BMX-style cruiser? Please post pics, if so.

    Also - can someone give me the C-C seat tube and standover of the 19"?

    thanks

    ... and if we just ... New '04

    I just got mine in december. Have hardly had a chance to ride it though, given the often 1 foot or more of snow on the ground. Makes that 10km commute extra fun.

    I'm 6'5, and the 19" fits me nice, but I come from BMX and smallish freeride bikes.

    The thing on the frame is a MasterLock CuffLock - the greatest, most efficient lock ever made.

    New parts to add: envy 38 tooth ring and bashguard. Everyone should check out Envy. Canadian made chainrings, in different weights, bolt configs, and many sizes. Cheap.

    It's funny how fast salted roads and snow send your drive chain to crap - good thing I'm swapping it all out right away.

    Check out the DirtRag chainstay protector ... mmm ... no chain slap ...

    thanks for the replies guys!
    Anyone have C-to-C and SO measurements for the 17" and the 19"?

    I'd normally ride the 19" if I were building it as my primary MTB (I'm 6' w/ 33 1/4" inseam), but I'm thinking about the 17" so I can go a little more bmx-style.

    I know. I have no chainslap ... it's an ironic chainstay protector. Irony is my friend.

    The redline site has specs for all frames. That's how I picked mine, although I question their accuracy because they list the exact same specs for lengths and angles for all three sizes (15,17,19), other than seattube. So unless there is something I don't understand about framemaking, I don't see how that can be entirely accurate.

    Smile Redline chain question

    Does anyone know what width of chain the monocog uses? BMX or multispeed (from their cx lineup). I could measure, but I'm at work and the bike is at home.

    the redline site lists it as coming stock with a 3/32" chain, the KMC Z30, designed for 6-speeds or less.
    chain manufacturer site:

    that doesn't mean you can't slap a PC-7X on though... that's what I will be doing.
