I've just been through a very similar thought process on a new project, and settled on monolithic Rails API and React/Redux SPA for similar reasons. Out of interest are you planning to have the React code within the same repo as the Rails API and deploy them together? Or will the React side be stored in some other repo and deployed separately>

Planning on separate repos. This seems like a project where it'd be convenient to eventually have a native mobile app, so I'm going to try to develop so that the API can be developed and updated separately from any front end/app that may connect to it. But I'd love to hear about others' approaches.
