    I had a bunch of bikes - 26" HT and full squish (Blur XC) and a SS 29er (Redline Monocog Flight)... the 29er is all I ride - I just got a deal on a Felt Nine Solo - moved parts (fork wheels...) over from the Redline and I'll make the Monocog geared... eventually after I sell off the Blur... but that'll be months... probably after the winter.

    So I'll have a SS and that'll be it for a a while. I just haven't enjoyed riding anything with 26" wheels anymore... gears are OK - but 29" wheels are so much more fun and if all I have is a SS that's fine!

    If you're wanting to get a front suspension, your choice should be the Monocog, since the Motobecane Outcast is not adjusted for a suspension.

    Of course!

    The problem is with commuting because the gearing is too low but I wouldn't want to take my lovely SS bike on the train or lock it outside anyway.

    Karate Monkey's are the same way, leave em rigid...suspension forks dont mesh well on
    em for some reason. If you are looking for a good priced 29er the monocog is the way to go...otherwise the new GT 29ers are actually nice too. Ant

    I assume its a geometry issue. I guess it all works out cause I would rather ride mine rigid.

    Little OT, but does any one have a geometry chart for the Monocog 29er? I want one, but I can't find a chart with head tube length and all that jazz. My G.F.'s effective HT length is too long and I would like a cheap replacement until I can afford something else.
