    Karate Monkey: can I run canti's

    Hi Guys,

    Thinking of running canti's when I get my new KM, but there are no hangers.

    I assume I can run one of those CX hangers for the front, but where can I get a hanger for the back. I think I have seen seat post clamp hangers but did a search and can't find a link.

    Why do I want to run canti's? well I've got some nice old shimano polishable cantis and I like the idea of something different. I also like to stop so am I being silly?

    Thanks

    Rob

    According to the Surly Web Site, The Karate Monkey has removable Cantilever mounts:

    Brake compatibility:

    Most International Standard disc or cantilever rim-type

    Braze-ons:

    Cantilever bosses with removable pivots.

    I would expect these would either be installed, or in a small parts box.

    That is not what he is asking.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
