The Surly Karate Monkey is a flat-bar do-anything hardtail mountain bike that laughs in the face of all topography. Like many things Surly, it is multi-adaptable, disc brake specific and able to wear 29er or 650b wheels, fat or not. Picking up on only the necessary modern trail bike spec needs, like beefed-up headtube, thru-axles, and compatibility with a dropper post, the Karate Monkey can deal with whatever challenging terrain you care to visit.
Handing it over to Surly - they say:
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.
