Surly Karate Monkey Front Suspension Complete Bike, 27.5, Large, High Fiber Green

We are expecting these new builds at the end of November. Get in touch if you have any questions or want to reserve your new ride!

Product Overview

Check out the newest Karate Monkey. This hardtail mountain bike meets all the modern trail standards with dropper post compatibilty, 44mm headtube, Gnot-Boost rear, spacing, thru-axles and a suspension corrected fork. Compatibility with most mountain bike standards makes it the perfect parts bin bike *disk break only. The complete bike comes with Surly's 27.5" Dirt Wizard tires but there's clearance for 29" tires, if you decide to go that direction. The Karate Monkey runs a Shimano Deore 1x12 Drivetrain with a RockShox 35 Gold RL A2 Suspension Fork.

"Karate Monkey delivers a resilient, lively ride on all sorts of gnarly terrain. Its frame is a highly-versatile canvas for whatever dirty masterpiece your brain cooks up. According to our computing machine (Thor) it can be set up in approximately 487 different configurations. Originally designed as a 29er (and the frame that helped spark the 29” wheel movement), the latest Karate Monkey is designed to perform just as admirably as a 27.5+ rig as well. This allows you to pick your poison — provided your poison is having a really great time while permanently donning a shit-eating grin, of course."-Surly
