|Style||Years ago the Karate Monkey helped start the 29" wheel movement and, as time's gone by, many companies - Surly included - have experimented with even more wheel sizes.
With so many different types and sizes of tyres now on the market, riders have begun to understand the effect that tyre width has on overall wheel diameter, and with ample tyre clearance, you can see the benefits of multiple wheel sizes all on one bike. 27+ tyres have the same rolling diameter as a 29" wheel, and as a plus (ha!) you get some of the the traction and floatation benefits of fat bike tyres.
The Karate Monkey uses a horizontal dropout with a derailleur hanger that features Gnot-Boost spacing, which gives the rider the ability to run any kind of mountain bike hub they choose. 10 x 135mm QR, 12 x 142, or 12 x 148 Boostâ„¢ will all work in the Karate Monkey frame. The frame uses a 44mm headtube for broad fork compatibility and is ED coated for an added layer of internal protection.
Standard 29" wheels and tyres can be swapped in with no issue.
