I'm looking at upgrading to my next level of ride. The Monoc Quattro Pro looks like a great price/performance point. Anyone out there familiar with it?

It's fantastic. I rode all the usual candidates during the selection process - top Italian, Dales, etc.

None of them came even close, especially given the price differential. You won't be disappointed.
Thanks for the infoastrobiker

I know a few folks who have Monocs, and they like them also. The articles on integrated headsets were interesting, too. Never really thought about it, turns out my current bike has that, as well as the alternate (Giant TCR 0 Composite) that I am looking at, so I guess that won't be a discriminator in my choice.

I´ve got a Nakamura and it´s made by Monoc with some adjustments from the Swedish Pro Team "Team Mälarenergi". The frame is quick like h*ll and it´s very nice to ride. It accelerates very nice and one of the judgement where "A bike for the sprinter who likes attack cycling and know to handle a disorderly stallion"

Here´s a pic of the bike:
