View Full Version : FS: Surly Karate Monkey winter commuter

I finally found a used Rawland Drakkar in my size, am in the process of putting together a race bike, and need to sell this to help finance those, sadly, as I really like this bike.

Surly Karate Monkey 29er f/f and Cane Creek HS. all in VGC. 18" frame, takes 700c wheels. (i ride a 56 road bike and the frame fits me well). paint is in good shape, some normal use marks here and there but no major scratches, no dings, no dents. excellent frame, very versatile, can be built up as a 29er, single speed or gears, disc or canti/v-brakes, takes fenders. will take huge tires. steel surly fork is suspension corrected, i.e. you can put a suspension fork on it and not change the geo. in the pics, frame has electrical tape over the logos, I did this to protect the frame when it was locked up, but taking the tape off took the surly logo stickers off, too. frame is in good shape, just no stickers on the TT or DT. I believe you can get the stickers from Surly. you'll notice in pics, it also has protection at head tube from cable rub and on chainstay from chainsuck. frame is loved.

makes a very excellent winter commuter, or a great hardtail trails bike, both of which I've used it for.

frame will be well packed. asking $350 + shipping OBO for f/f/hs. if this is too high, don't be afraid to make an offer.

also now offering as a complete, with Salsa Moto-Ace 11degree sweep flatbars for $800 obo. can sell with Avid Black Ops Single Digit Ultimate v-brakes for an extra $80. will consider parting with Luv bars (pictured) for an extra $100.

fenders, seatpost, and cables/housing all brand new. tires have about 200 miles on them. Avid Levers, XTR rd, LX cranks, XT shifter, Bontrager branded DT swiss wheels. 11-36 9 speed cassette. Avid BBDB(BB7) disc calipers, rotors have very little use. MKS platforms.

this is it now:

here's a pic from previous (original) owner. it's just dirty in the pic, paint is in good shape.
