We’re just loving this new Karate Monkey Ops complete build that arrived recently.
It’s reasonably spec’d with a Deore 2×10 drivetrain and a nice Fox fork with full adjustability, and it comes with the rear thru axle set up that’s relatively new to Surly, but all of that pales in comparison to the paint job.
As far as we can recall this is the 1st Surly painted with a translucent powder coat, and it looks fantastic! To add to the cool factor you can see the nice, clean frame welds under the translucent paint.
If you’re looking for a very versatile 29er cross country bike you’re unlikely to beat the beauty of this one.
Cost is $2800 plus taxes.
