Gravity Coalition is stoked to offer the Surly Karate Monkey in a stock rigid fork build or a custom build with
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 Surly's 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.
The Karate Monkey is amazing on singletrack, bomber for bikepacking, works as a commuter, and don't forget the flexible tire clearance.
