    My first build up

    Finished my first build. Older Redline Monocog, I got most everything off e-bay. I had the wheels but had to lace in a new rear hub because of funky spacing in the rear. My goal was to build a city type of cruiser while keeping the $ as cheap as possible and still end up with a nice (in my eyes anyway) bike. in all I believe I spent about $350. and gained a TON of bike building knowledge.


    Yes, The stem is bmx and the bars are mtb, I got a some low rise bmx bars after the pic sere taken, see the last cell phone pic to see it with the bmx bars

    tires are a close fit

    Probably the most original Monocog I have ever seen. Really nice. I'm glad you switched out the bars, though. The difference in diameter between the bmx stem and mtb bars was not healthy. Enjoy the ride!

    I kinda liked the look of the flat bars after I put them on and they fell good as far as the geometry goes but the bmx bars definately give it more of a cruiser feel.

    Man, that's a cool build. The flat bars did look funky though with those BMX grips on them. Good job dude.

    Looks like what a BMX wants to be when it grows up. I like it.
