Monster Cross Junior

While this bike really doesn't embody the edicts of being a true monster cross bike I thought it was cute none-the-less. My guess this bike is really a winter commuter. If you are not familiar with Monster Crosses here is where the they went wrong: tires and wheels are the wrong size, should be 700c or 29er. Granted the the smaller wheels definitely make it a Junior. Monster crossers don't have squishy forks. Lastly, and this is more of a personal opinion but the primary frame material for a Monster Cross bike is steel. Maybe Aluminum if you are running fixed but Carbon? No way.
