    RedLine MonoCog Flight - Haro Mary - Kona Unit

    Sorry if this has been discussed a million times, but I want to pick up a SS before spring and as the title states these are the three I have narrowed it down to (looking for disc, steel & rigid are the requirements). I have been reading all threads on here for weeks and still can not make up my mind. The Haro is in stock (can demo ride it) and the other two would have to be ordered with 50% deposit (no ride until they come in). I need any info or input that you might have please (good,bad,indifferent). I dont want to buy anything used. Here is there current order.

    1.) 2011 Redline MonoCog Flight 29 (Matte Black/Red) $900
    2.) 2010 Haro Mary 29 (Gloss Black/Purple) $600
    3.) 2011 Kona Unit 29 (White/Black) $800

    I am currently on a 2009 Specialized Stumpjumper Comp 29 (geared) and want the SS just for fun.

    Thanks in advance

    I don't mean to be a dick, but there are two threads on the same thing on the first page alone. I'm surprised no one posted to use the search function. Again not trying to be rude.

    My pick would be #1. Nicer steel out of the three and geo is money. You may also want to look at the regular Monocog 29er if you're going to keep it a SS. Just a TAD heavier, but I think it's a great bike, especially for the cost. Should be able to get one under $500.

    IMO the geometry is better on the Flight and the Unit. Hard to beat the Unit for the money.

    Also I'll second the normal MC, it's a tank but a nice one at that.

    Thank you to all who responded. I actually went ahead and picked up a new 2010 Mary on Sunday for $500 at a somewhat local bike shop. I could not pass it up.
