    opinions please: Redline Monocog 29'er

    What does everyone think of this bike as an inexspensive way to get into the 29'er Single Speed realm

    ...an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables; slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy ***** we don't need.

    at the pricepoint it is easily justifiable for me, compared to the other 29" SS options
    I am just looking for opinions on the quality of the bike (frame) i know the component set is low end, but it will get me riding, and can replace stuff as it fails.

    The 26" Monocogs are tanks, in the good way. I can't imagine the 29ers are much weaker.

    I would say you can't go wrong at that price. The wheels are probably suspect but what can you expect. I am sure it is a tank also, Nice beefy 4130. Good for derby!

    I've ridden a 26" Monocog and absolutely loved it. Unless somebody comes up with a better alternative, I say go for it!

    Redline makes good bikes, so you should not have to really worry about the frame. I was looking at getting one but ended up going for the bling factor a Bianchi SASS. But if my wife/accountant did not okay the funds for the Bianchi I would be riding a Redline.
