    Go down the shitter? I know they've not been on the forefront, but I'm not sure about going down the shitter. Monty bikes have always stayed true to their own philosophy, and not really followed the trends of the sport. In my opinion, they are the first name I think of when someone mentions a "Trails" bike. They may not be my favorite, but I've always looked at them as being nice, just not AS nice as some of the others. Without Monty, there would probably be no biketrials as we know it. The bikes they make might have a few problems here and there, but I think they're still respected by those who've been around long enough to remember what it was like before real trials bikes were available to the average rider.

    I rode some spanish kids monty 221 it felt amazing, it has the best braking power.
    It also felt feather light compared to my mod.

    Thanks, I've reviewed your posts and I don't think we need idiocy of this magnitude on the site. Bye Bye.

    I'd get that stock if they didn't have that amazingly retarded 25" rear rim.

    i have nothing against their mods, even though i'd take an echo frame given the choice. i havn't tried any of the stocks newer than 2003 but i didn't like them - blech.

    the newer geometries seem on-to-it though, i'd like to have a little play. kinda feel sorry for them over here - echo came along and BAM, noone has montys anymore :rofl:
