7 reasons not to buy
- At 29 to 33 pounds, the Monocog is a bit of a hog, especially without gears.
- Components are mid-range and mid-weight, but definitely not cheap.
- The Tektro mechanical disc brakes delivered performance that was seen as average by more than one owner.
- For some butts, the saddle was not a good match. It felt too firm.
- The rigid fork is straight and 1 1/8”. This could make it difficult to find high-end upgrades that fit.
- The seatpost is an obscure 26.8mm in diameter. While replacements can be found, they aren’t common. It’s an odd choice.
- Chainstays were seen as excessively long at 17.5”, which may be a hindrance to acceleration.
