Black mountain cycles Road frame build from box to road



weights are straight out the box no cups or anything else. probably not the most accurate means of measuring weight but... i don't really care about weight for this one

Same here.

I have a Monstercross and it's really a great frameset at an el-cheapo pricepoint.

Rides very well and it's super versatile.

I'll definitely consider Mike's 650b frameset when available.
