    looking for a Karate Monkey in San Jose

    Does anyone have a 16" or 18" Karate Monkey I can check out in person? I'm looking to buy a frameset but would love to throw a leg over one and check stand over and top tube that would be awesome. I'm happy to do some service no charge for the favor. Let me know please

    I'm 5' 11" and my 18" KM feels very good (at least . I've had it for..wow, like maybe 4-5 years now? I've always been slightly "in between" M and L frames, but when it's a 29er that seals the deal for the M and it feels wonderful.
