Surly Karate Monkey
bike is currently serving as a single speed. It sports Sun CR18
rims laced to Deore disc hubs with IRC tires. I am running 30x18
gearing as we have hills everywhere in Vermont. I like the Mary
bar from on-one as they give my wrists a rest on a fully rigid bike.
This bike gets little or no maintenance and keeps on plugging.
the winter I put the gears back on (3x7) and mount Snow Cat rims
(44mm wide) and Exi Wolf tires to ride the local snow mobile trails.
Winter is a great time to ride in VT.
