    karate monkey wheelbase

    On Surly's website they list the wheelbase on a 20" monkey as 42.4, anyone know where that is measured in the dropouts, their wheelbase listed is a lot less than many other
    29ers, so curious if that is meausred with the axle all the way forward. Anybody want to go out and measure theirs along with how far the axle is from the front of the dropout.

    Thanks

    Is 43 inces, drop to drop, with my axles all the way forward, I checked the web and this is what they list.

    remember, the bent seat tube brings the wheel forward (and makes front der. choice tricky)

    Bent tube=good handling and you almost *have* to make it single speed....
