    Looking to go Single Speed

    So im looking to go SS, and was wondering what you guys think of the Redline Monocog Flight 29'er? If you guys have any other brands that I should look at too, please let me know.

    Thank you,
    David

    on the trails?
    ask at the mtb forum.
    on the road?
    no.

    I, for one, think the Monocog 29 is a work of art. Being a single-speed...it's a masterpiece.
    But then I love bikes.
    When I was little, I prayed every night for a bike.
    Then I realized the Lord doesn't work that way,
    so I stole one Then I prayed for forgiveness. -emo philips

    If you're looking to ride single speed on the street and trails I'd recommend an IRO Rob Roy.

    Awesome bike. The Flite model is even better.

    A monocog is a great deal. I've had one for three years now. Its intended for trail use and works well for that. Theres no point in spending more for a singlespeed bike used primarily on dirt trails. I also use it for commuting in extreme weather too (snow, ice, etc.). Its geared too low for normal street riding, unless your wife is slow. Mine is

    I got a monocog ss '26er' and think its a fine bike. I'm sure the 29er is even better.
