Enter the Dojo Of Simian Martial Arts
The Surly Karate Monkey 27.5"+ frameset is the foundation of a highly-versatile trail bike that also plays the part of 29er equally well.
This frame 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.
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 big 'ol grin, of course.
