Just saw one on ebay and I was wondering if anybody knew anything about the MOHO road bikes? I know that the MOHO mtn bike are nice and mountain cycle doesn't have any info on their site, just wondering if you all knew anything. Thanks.

Mountain cycle was bought out and the MOHO has been redesigned and production of the road version was stoped. There are several people on my team that ride them and they love them, but I have never ridden one for myself.

MC makes good stuff. The Moho road is basically the same as the mountain frame w/ different geometry. They quit making it and the tri frame also. The frames were well built but I imagine sales never picked up because: roadies are pretty traditional, it weighs about 3.5 pounds which isn't really light for an aluminum road/tri frame, and the bottle cages are kind of a pain to reach, and for whatever reason it was banned by the UCI. Now that MC is under Kinesis I imagine they'll stick to mountain bikes, their interbike booth had some cool new models. All that being said, the Moho was built to sell at $750 and nowadays you can find really good deals on them, so you'll get a frame with machinework and attention to detail that no other low/midlevel frame can match for a good price.
