    Set up for RAGBRAI. I'll add 2 small panniers and be riding self contained for the week.

    LOL, self contained is the only way to ride RAGBRAI. Can't help but chuckle at all the guys on stick bikes who seem to think it's a race! One big rolling party gotta love it!

    happy trails...

    Get out and ride!

    I love this thread! My Karate Monkey is my favorite bike. Every time I open this thread I want to leave my office and ride. Here is an updated photo of mine.

    Here's mine - an '09 complete that I've tweaked into a 1x9 for the summer. Built up a new rear wheel on an XT disc hub that I got for free (used another Delgado rim). Pulled set of old Suntour thumbies off a junked mtn bike. I've run it with Midge bars which I like quite a bit, will probably go back to those eventually. Not sure if I will ever drop the $$ for a decent suspension fork, I am a cheap bastage.

    Thanks - that was taken up at the Soapstone Prairie natural area, about an hour north of Ft. Collins CO. Really mellow single track / double track / ranch roads - very rigid bike friendly.

    Finally got motivated and built one up. Lovin it so far, real dirt time will follow in the next couple weeks, as soon as the RAGBRAI rush ends in Sioux City and I can get out of the shop!

    happy trails...

    My monkey continues to evolve. Put the Midge bars back on it, got a set of LX cranks for cheap, now running it as a 3x9. As I discovered front derailleurs on the KM are kinda finicky - picked up an old LX FD (M571 old style recommended by Surly) for 10 bucks to fix it up.

    Went up Old Flowers Road west of Ft. Collins over the weekend - couple of tough climbs, the granny gear was definitely welcome, and the big ring came in handy on the long dirt road descent back to the car.
