    karate monkey

    anybody build up a SS karate monkey with slicks and disks. I am also wondering about sizing i am 5'11" should i go 18" or 20". If i build this bike it will be my dedicated commuter. I am currently riding an older GF wahoo converted to SS. But every time i look at it i think it looks like a dump of a bike. I have been commuting like 60miles a week so i think i deserve a new ride.

    Check the Surly forum. I know people there have used a KM for commuting, and posted pics.

    And depending on where you store your Fisher during the day, having it look dumpy may also prevent it from being targeted by thieves. Just something to keep in mind.

    Yes. It's good. Do it. Probably go with the 18.

    I have the dope Karate Monkey forks for my Kona blast, but I am waiting for my nashbar trekking handlebars before I put them on.
