Redline Monocog?????????

Hey whats up. New idea i went to my LBS and they have a Redline Monocog frame and fork for real cheap i mean real cheep (i just installed a stereo into a dude thats works there car and hes giving it to me at cost) Is this a good frame and will it hold up a 6'1" 225LB dude like myself????????? Also can i use my 7speed LX rear hub for a single speed? Oh and has anyone done such a bike for street and Dirt jump???

I've ridden the Monocog a little and it's a great bike and a lot of fun. I'm pretty sure an LX rear hub won't work with it because the dropouts have BMX spacing. One of my friends has one and he tried riding trials on it, but the geometry wasn't very conducive to that and the gear ratio was wrong, so he got a PlanetX instead. For street and dirt jumping, you'd probably be better off with something like a Specialized P-series. Then again, that'll cost more.

Dang that must of hurt.

Seriously I agree with iamlucky13. The monocog does have a BMX spacing in the rear. And a specialized P1 or a Giant STP would be better for Urban/DJ. Could always sell it and buy a Azonic STeelhead http://www.azonicusa.com/catalog/pro...roducts_id=150
