It's basically a 9-2-5 with riser bars,fenders and 1x9 drivetrain and 700c wheels...would this be considered a "Hybrid"? I don't know how to insert the link directly to the bike,but it can be seen on RL's website (www.redlinebicycles.com/).
Anybody here own one? If so,how's she ride and got any pics?
I'll be replacing my old Escort wagon come tax time (Subaru time :thumb:),and was thinking of buying one of these with some of the $ from selling it,to have a more road-oriented ride than either of my mtn bikes (1 SS and 1 29er).

You're trading in an Escort for a Subaru and there will be money from that for a bike?
I don't see a 1x9 on the site you link to.

Buying the Sube for $2500 (all I would have to spend),selling the Escort to a riding bud for $500-550. Actually,I mis-typed the header,the Mono 9 was replaced a couple/few years ago with the d440 (which is my primary mtn bike),and is a mtn bike...I meant to say "Metro 9",it's under the commuter link from Redline's homepage,and yes in fact is a 1x9...but you're right,there is no 1x9's anywhere I'd mentioned,if you din;t know where to look,LOL!

Yeah, I'd have to class it as a Hybrid, heavily leaned toward commuter use.

That was kinda my thougts as well...just wanted to hear it from someone else to confirm it :)
I had been strongly planning to attempt a purchase tax time,but I may invest that $ into a refurbishisng into an Xtracycle equipped 2000 Trek 6000 (that's strung all over the shed awaiting a rebuild...someday,LOL!) I dunno yet. Depends on how much I have to blow.
