    Mountain Bike Configurator?

    Hi! Is there some website where you can check boxes for any given mtb loadout, and it spits out a list of complete bikes that match the specs?

    That would be awesome and relieve the burden on the experts here answering questions like mine.

    If there isn't such a thing, I'm pondering the following:

    29er
    mechanical disc brakes
    single speed but able to accept a front derailleur
    reasonable suspension fork
    hardtail
    Does NOT have to be a "ZOMG lighter than a catfart" magical unobtainium alloy.
    Durable
    Cheap

    I'm hoping to find something that matches these specs as a 2009 closeout.

    Any ideas?

    Aren't the Monocog and Karate Monkey both rigid? Redline D600 is front-suspended. In the same price neighnorhood is the Kona Kahuna - - but you'll have to settle for hydraulic discs .

    Hey Doug...the D600 has a Dart...bleh. D660 is Reba'd.

    Here ya go OP:

    Redline D660. It's a 1x9 (one-by-nine) which means it has one chainring up front and 9 in the back with a rear derailleur. So you have a nice middle ground with a less cluttered bike, cleaner looking, lighter, yet you still have a few gears to choose from.

    Another thought is to do what a local boy 'round here did and that's to get a Redline Monocog flight SS and throw a decent suspension fork on it.

    Where can I get a bike with a rigid front fork (a rigid lefty preferred), suspension rear, 29" wheel up front, 26" wheel in back, V brake on the front, disk on the back, riser bar on the left, flat bar on the right, one clipless pedal and one platform pedal, 10 speed rear der, no front der, steel frame...

    Come on, Chris_F, I'm a newb trying to learn this stuff.

    Any word on how much the D660 will retail for? Google (well, Froogle anyway) doesn't seem to know. I'm trying to keep it well under $1000 all in, but the LBSs are friendly/pushing me to something much more expensive. At the end of the day, though, I don't really NEED a featherweight machine with hydro discs.
