i had a monty 221 x-lite which was almost 4 years old, didnt have any dents or cracks at all

the new owner is riding it now with no problems at all too (Y)

you shouldn't be afraid of any cracks or snapping with monty, as long as you don't do huge drops every day

Ah yes, Monty... Had 3. One broke because I had no booster. In the other frame, the seat tube detached itself from the bb. And in my Ti, there's a tiny crack on the chainstay. One thing is certain - these frames are weak. But if you learn to appreciate them and love them, you'll just weld the cracks and carry on riding. I must say that the Ti rides like nothing I've ever had (apart from a stock bike) and it's definitely worth having even if you have to weld it from time to time.

My mate had lots of Montys in his life. He rode the black&white one (231 '01 maybe?) for a few years and it never cracked. He's a smooth rider but considering he was at one stage vice world champion, he wasn't giving these frames an easy time either.

I bought my 221-ti (2005) second hand - I didn't realise at the time that there was a problem with the geo & a profile hub, so suprize, suprize..there's a crack in the chainstay. But it's been like that for as far as I can remember & I'm not a beast at riding, a tad heavy handed sometimes yet it's still holding up nicely.
