Surly Karate Monkey 27.5 + 2020


The Karate Monkey is back, with a new wheel size!  The new Karate Monkey from Surly comes as a complete bike with 27.5+ wheels.  With a steel frame and fork, the 3" Surly Dirt Wizards and a dialed trail geometry give you a fantastic ride.  Seriously, this thing rips - the steering is very nimble and the wheelbase makes the bike ride with quite a snappy feel.  The stock build is typical Surly, that is, a solid spec without breaking the bank.  SRAM hydraulic brakes and thru axle compatibility are thoroughly modern touches, but the steel frame and lack of suspension certainly harken back to an earlier time - a time where riders left the house to go smash on some trails without even knowing what a shock pump was, where no sag was improperly set, and where the only measurable data that came out of a ride was fun.  We're into that.

Inventory has been extremely affected by COVID-19.  If a bike says SOLD OUT on our site, it is because we don't have any more at the moment.  We are trying to keep this as accurate at possible. 

We are sold out of most adult bikes under $1000, entry level mountain + road bikes, and 24" kids bikes.  We are happy to add people to a waiting list, as we have plenty of bikes on backorder.
