When it was introduced, the Karate Monkey was one of the first (the first?) production 29’ers. Not only did the Monkey put the 29″ platform in front of a lot of people, it did so at a price within reach of many a bike nerd. Back then there were only about three tire options! Since then 29-inch has become a full-blown category, with entire bike companies dedicated to the platform.We offer the complete bike version of the Karate Monkey as a single speed but you could turn it into a geared bike if you wanted. Or monster cross it. Fixed-gear off-road it. The Karate Monkey sticks to trail like peanut butter to a dog’s mouth. It rides great.
