What is happening here?
« on: November 15, 2008, 06:47:29 PM »
So I got back into MTBing almost two years ago and jumped in and bought a nice Stumpy full squish after a few rides on a friends bike. I have ridden more in the last year and am totally hooked. For some strange reason I am now looking at 29ers - not just any 29ers but even a SS. They just look like a whole lot of fun....... throw some big tires on and hit it. Now i dont feel I have come to a point where I am bored with my current ride as there are still plenty of climbs I am trying to master. I am even watching a Vassago 29er frame on Ebay right now. SOmeone help :o

Of course I will keep my current ride ;D

29ers rule! SS is way cool but my knees protest too much, so I'll keep the gears.

29er SS is def the way to go.  I get a good work out and its so simple, just pedal no shifting, no braking just flow.  Your stumy will feel insignificant after you get the 29er. 
Pedal fast, Hit hard - pain is temporary, and chicks dig scars!!

What about a Redline Monocog. Saw one for sale new... pretty cheap. Not sure of the components though but you can always upgrade. BTW it was a rigid setup with rim brakes.

I bought a used monocog last year and been riding it ever since. Good bike to start with and to keep, not the lightest but frickin strong. I changed from rim to disc. I raced my monocog and did not fare bad compared to expensive ones.

What size tire can you run on this? I want something with some fatties on it to cruise.

The Monocog is a great bike.  I've had mine since March and the only upgrade I've done was ditching the rim brakes for a set of BB7's (mechanical Avid disc brakes).
