Hey, I recognize that thing. I gave it a test spin because I was thinking of picking up one of their take-off saddles. The big wheels were cool; they really rolled over bumpy terrain. But the gearing was way too low.

I'm in, me too. That thing really has been testing me. If any shop in my area had one in stock, they'd need to order another one. and with avid discs for only 40.00, for 600.00 you could stop!!!

I got the Redline Monocog with regular size wheels. Threw on some disc breaks that I had laying around, but that was probably not necessary. Thought about the 20er, but figured one step at a time.

Great bike, you should get one.

If they get too cool there'll be an even bigger backlog order then the GF Rig had! I almost bought one at the LBS in Oakridge while on the MTBO trip, but the word got out they had one and it was gone the next morning.......:madman:

Evidently alot of shops are awaiting a shipment of these.:confused:

Yep,, they have those at Cambria in Auburn,, very nice. The bike shop in Saratoga has the Raleigh equivalent, and it has disk brakes. Test drove it,,, very sweet. Lets see, birthdays coming up, Christmas, then there's our aniversery.... Lot's of oportunities. ;)

Not too big. Ones that look like these should buy that first BS bike, though anyone that rides Boone, Martas, i9s should have their head examined.

Well what I saw on their web site was in the $2000 range,, I think frame only. Not what I would want to spend for a SS. :nono:

The Raleigh is nice, but can't take a sussy fork if you ever desire to run one on it. Else, you'll look like Peter Fonda in Easy Rider...
