I"ve been dreaming lately of a weird sort of bike.
I've got this bullet proof Armageddon Zombie Apocalypse bike. The Karate Monkey.
I built it from nearly all parts floating around my piles of debris. Those damned old parts are like seeds that will grow into a new bike if not thrown out.
The KM is a dingle speed w/ fenders, drop bars, and (when it's cold enough) studded narrow tires.
I love it. From Dec-March it's the go to crap kicker get the lungs functioning bike. If there was a Zombie attack I'd grab the ammo and the Monkey waaaay before the well cared for babied Ti sleds.
So I like the KM enough that I started thinking about a super Chi Chi cross variant of it. None of the actual carbon cross bikes do much for me so using the A9C seems like a reasonable thought.
Why would any MTB hard tail not do well in this application? I understand that the geometry is different but what will I actually feel? Too far a reach? Skinny tires in a frame that does well w/ fater tires?
