Re: Shinn Dundee reviews please!

No idea on the shinn dundee. I have ridden the shinn monk and the shinn super shinn. i can tell you the monk is a chop monster, eats it up. it is also good in the flats. the supershinn is great in the flats but not so great in the chop and waves. i highly recommend the monk.
