The Karate Monkey is Surly's super-versatile mountain bike for all sorts of trails and riders - off road touring, woodsy singletrack and big mountain days - it's your choice!

Years ago the Karate Monkey helped start the 29er movement and, as time has gone by, many companies, Surly included, have experimented with even more wheel sizes.

Riders have begun to understand the effect that tyre width has on overall wheel diameter, and with ample tire clearance, you can see the benefits of multiple wheel sizes all on one bike. 27+ tires have about the same rolling diameter as a 29er wheel, yet you get all the traction and floatation benefits of extra-wide knobbies. And that's just the tyres.

The Karate Monkey frame has recently had a make over that includes the addition of features like internal dropper post routing and a slight tweak in geometry that is more progressive and trail-oriented. 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 Boost 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. If, at any point, you decide you want to throw on some skinny treads, standard 29â wheels and tyres can be swapped in with no issue.
