2012 Surly Karate Monkey

Imagine if a martial arts master had primate dexterity and was made of steel. You've now conceptualized the Surly Karate Monkey. The Monkey is versatile, capable of running skinny tires or massive treads, suspension or rigid forks and while it's capable of rocking gears, it brings its "A-Game" to the singlespeed scene. The strong 4130-chromoly frame and fork ride silky smooth handling any terrain beneath your wheels and the short chainstays make for a very lively ride. Tough 29-inch WTB rims wrapped with wide WTB tires trounce anything in their way and the singlespeed drivetrain is powered by stout TruVativ cranks. Wide Salsa bars give you kung fu leverage to complement your singlespeed style and Avid discs with 6-inch rotors reign things in.

    Comments:

    This bike is amazing, yes it is kind of spendy. But..... it is well worth it, the frame is adaptable to be changed into anything you want, throw 700c's on and go for a nice cruise, or ill pop on some 29er's and tare up some downhill, either way im 200 pounds, ive had the bike for 6 months now and have yet to make a dent into the frame.
