Fortnight cyber special...

In response to a couple of questions posted on the Black Mountain Cycles Facebook page, yes, I will offer a "Cyber Monday" special to anyone who wants to pre-order (with payment in full) a new monster cross frameset.  It just took me until today to get the time and figure out what the Cyber Monday special would be.  And I'll extend the Cyber Monday special out for a fortnight, ending on Friday, Decembr 14.  

Here's the deal, pre-pay for the cross frame of your choice (including the couple of 62cm root beer frames I have) and I'll offer you one of the following options included in the cost of the frameset (the 65cm frame is $545 and all other sizes are $595).  

1.  Vee Rubber XCX or 12 tires (limited to stock on hand and I have quite a few) - $80 value.
2.  Tektro CR720 canti brakes to equip the bike (two brakesets), black in color only - $70 value.
3.  Installed Cane Creek 40 headset with a front, steerer tube mounted cable hanger - $78 value.
4.  FSA Vero cross crankset with bottom bracket.  This is a black, square taper crank, 172.5 arms, 46/36 alloy rings, with an FSA/TH cartridge bottom bracket - $100+ value.  There are two of these crank/bb sets available.  They are new but previously installed in a new bike.

Shipping is additional and based on your time zone:  Pacific - $25, Mountain - $30, Central - $35, East - $40.  Framesets shipping to anywhere in California also will have 8% sales tax added.  E-mail or call for more info.  Visa, Master-Card, AmEx, or Paypal accepted.

Pick a package.

Gah! So tempting. Mike, as you may remember, I'm on a 59 BMC road frame with a 100mm stem and a 75.5cm SH. It looks to me that I could go 56 or 59 in the Monster Cross. Do you agree? 56 if it's going to be more of a mountain bike for me and 59 if it's more of an all-road/adventure touring rig?

Hi Bubba,
You could look at it like that. With that seat height, I would still say stick with the 59 with a moderate length stem instead of down sizing and needing to run a 20mm longer stem to maintain rider position (unless you want to be less stretched out). I don't usually think stand over height is a huge concern - as long as you do have clearance. When you need to put a foot down, it's usually only one and you lean the bike. It's rare that would put both feet down at the same time (almost impossible, I think) in a technical situation.
