I can't seem to find any information about this frame on the net. The only information comes from On Ones own website. And I like to read a little bit more about it, than what On One writes.

http://www.on-one.co.uk/i/q/FRSABMONOX/ ... e_and_fork" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

It doesn' t even look like, that anyone has posted a picture of a buildup or anything else regarding that frame. Så I'm a little bit concerned about sending my money after this frame.

What I´m looking for in a crossframe is 4 things:

1. Carbon
2. Canti equipped
3. Mudguard bosses
4. Cheap

I've been looking for some of the china frames, but they don't have the mudguard bosses, which is very important to me.

Has anyone any infos about the Monopoli?
Has anyone any suggestions of alternatives to the Monopoli?

Thanks in advance.

From the pictures, I don't think Deng Fu and Hong Fu make cross bikes with fender mounts, but Flyxii does: http://www.flyxii.com/products.asp?menuid=356

I saw at least one on alibaba that has fender mounts, but my understanding is that it's kind of risky to buy from there:

(Disclaimer: I haven't bought a generic Chinese carbon frame, but I have been looking around at them recently.)

Thanks winstonc.

I've looked a great deal on the china frames too. But for now I've found it to risky too. But maybe i ought to reconsider....

It's a bit of a beast and your typical 2004-5 lego frame made with Deda Black Fin or Black Box stays and fork. You used to be able to buy it all from a catalogue and glue it to an alu or carbon frame. That's why I think it's that vintage.

So, that said, it's not going to be the stiffest frame in the world which'll make it a good commuter and comfortable off-roader, but not my first choice for a hard cross race.

For hard racing get a Van Dessel FTB.

Don't fret too much about mud guard eyelets, any P clips can do the trick.

Thanks for your input Frans. As far as I can tell, the FTB is a different price range though. And I'm looking for a budget cyclocross frame. But I appreciate all kind of suggestions.
