    Surly Karate Monkey

    Some one told me that 29er's are hard to wheelie and handle. I made this video to show that it's not so bad.

    were you clipped in to the pedals? i never understood how people can seemingly get a bike to hop on normal platform pedals.

    Awesome vid. I can barely wheelie a 26er. maybe I'll get better once I finish building my new Monkey.

    I actually found it easier when I was test riding a 29 Kaitai, vs my 26 Piranha.

    Seems like it just lets me find the balance point easier

    on a side note you look just like a kid I went to school with kinda scary, and it looks like you belong on a unicycle^^

    oh and not that I wear a helmet when I ride around my nehborhood but sombody is bound to say it "where is your helmet" so I got to say it first :P

    I propose when you can wheelie like that you don't need a helmet. At least in your driveway. Surly -- good choice.

    No, clippless pedals don't help very much with bunny hopping. Also, clipless pedals un-clip every once and a while when I donít want them to. It's not very good on my manhood.
