If you would like to test one we also have two staff members who personally own this bike- in 27.5+ configuration.

We say…

Surly Karate Monkey- a versatile, capable, snappy whippet! Agile and playful in the air like a big BMX, quick off the mark like a cross country bullet. It’s a trail bike that hasn’t subscribed to the ‘super long low and slack’ thing, so is still engaging on mellow-ish trails while holding it’s own on the big hits. Staff members Tom and Harry absolutely rave about their custom builds!

They say…

The Karate Monkey frame has recently gotten a makeover that includes the addition of features like internal dropper post routing, a new tubeset that uses the same trumpet tubes found on our Instigator 2.0, 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 meats, standard 29” wheels and tyres can be swapped in with no issue. If you want to round-house kick some trail right in the face, the Karate Monkey is your sled.

Get after it.
