This advert is for a newly built Surly Karate Monkey using the 2020/21 Fools Gold Medium Frame.


This bike has covered less that 100 miles and the frame (protected) and all components used in the build were new…with the exception of the Avid BB7 brake callipers which are about a year old.

If your looking at this you will probably know what an awesome frame the KM is. My build has some great components on it and is of a higher specification than the ones imported to the UK.

The bike was intended to double up as a rigid single track beast and distance bike packing machine.

Highlights of the build are 29er Halo Vapour (35mm external) rims laced into Hope Pro4 hubs built by Bikemonger in Ripon. The drivetrain is 12 speed slx (Deore crank) with a sweet Microshift thumb shifter that works both indexed and friction (for us old school ATBers).

The bike rolls on a pair of tubeless Schwalbe G-ONE Allroad 2.25 tyres which will double up to do some light summer trail duties. They absolutely hum along on gravel and tarmac and the low rolling resistance of the Hope hubs is amazing.

There is a Sonder Confucius handlebar that you can strap bags onto without racks etc and it will come with some super fat SKS Blumels mudguards.

It’s an awesome machine and was my supposed to be my long term bike for commuting, adventuring and trail riding but a change of job has changed my plans.

The bike is collection only from Nottingham or maybe Norfolk…if you are interested please get in touch before buying as I work away from home for some of the week. Cash on collection preferred.

The bike is also advertised on eBay.

Thanks for looking
