Momsen MTB

Recommended Posts

I have recently seen some adverts for a Momsen MTB.

 

Has anyone bought one of these bikes; and please give me some feedback.

I must say it has a really weird name; almost as if this bike was started by a Mother and Son.

 

Your feedback please

Who is He?

 

 

As far as I know he designed for Raleigh in SA for most of their recent years? (Techno-gurus correct me if I'm wrong?)

Jan Begemann did most of Raleigh's most recent offerings. Victor Momsen left Raleigh some years back to set up Two Wheel Trading. They import a range of niech market bikes.

I recently bought an AL329. Kept the frame fork and rims, and upgraded the rest. Sram x9, 2012 XT brakes, hope hubs, loaded seatpost, KCNC wide bar and stem, Fizik Gobi saddle.

I'm very happy with my bike. Very good value for money.

Hey man, nice bike! Also ride the 329 and did some upgrade work on it as well. Any idea of weight on your bike now?

What would it cost to build those rims onto Hope hubs?

IThanks Nochain! Just rode it at the Imana wildride...great bike. So far only plusses over the 26'er for me.

It weighs just under 12kg...I bought the hubs and skewers from CRC and spokes and assembly from my LBS. Speak to Ngala24. He was offering a set of ZTR/Hope wheels...maybe he can work a deal.

It probably cost me about R2800 using the rims off the 329.
