Karate Monkeys: Need Help!
I am buying a 2006 Karate monkey Frame and fork and I need advice on the build. I cant find any specs online I need the following:
BB dimensions (I plan on running SS only) and suggestions
Headset/steerer tube Dimensions (rigid fork) any suggestions
Crankset suggestions (SS only)
Seatpost diameter? I think I have a Thomson that will suffice.
Sliding dropouts? I'd assume I need a tug nut?
Thank you dear Surly family. This will be my first KM I am very excited!

Any 1 1/8 threadless headset will do. The BB shell is 73 mm. Seatpost is 27.2. A lot of people get this crank: Shimano LX FC-M582 Crankset > Components > Drivetrain > Cranksets | Jenson USA because it's a great deal and run it SS. Will fit 73mm.
You don't "need" a tugnut, it just makes tensioning the wheel easier. They are not considered "sliding" dropouts, those have built in sliders you can adjust.
All this stuff is on Surly's website, but I'm bored at work. Good luck with your build!
Thanks Mikey! This is my first build and I want to do it well.
