On its tenth year is the classic Karate Monkey 29er bike, which is included in the 2012 range released by Surly Bikes. With battleship gray and cash black colors and a geometry that remains unchanged, the bike was simply designed to be more focused on the single track.

Included in the major changes of the Karate Monkey is its fork tune-up, featuring slimmer gauge tubing. Aside from dropping the option for cantilever brake studs, the 2012 model will get a slightly tidier and thinner frame.
