yet another comparisson
This may be better suited for the MTB forum, I'm not sure.
I'm lusting after singlespeed mountain bikes right now. Fixies have ruined me. Every time I get on my geared XC bike to bomb down the trails on the weekend, I keep thinking how much fun it'd be with one gear.
I may have narrowed my focus down to either the IRO Mia or a RedLine Monocog.
I've read a lot of stuff about the Monocog here on the forums and it seems like a good option. Does anyone have any experience with the Mia?
I don't know if I need a 29er. I mean, it'd be 'cool' and whatnot, but how practical is it? I'm a fairly tall guy, 6'2, so I may be able to put it to use.
I ride mostly XC here in the Ozarks. I tend to abuse my mountain bikes fairly well.
