I am building a new surly
I have a 26" mtb I am happy with and thought about a road or cross bike, but the geometry doesn't feel right to me. I like the 29 er karate monkey and thought I would build one with some dirt drop bars and some 700 by 30ish or 40ish cyclocross tires (more slick than aggressive) to handle the rougher roads where I live. I think this would work for longer road rides than the Trek I ride on the trails.
Has anybody got any experience with this. Any suggestions
Thanks in advance for any replies, and any ideas or alternate suggestions for a more road friendly bike would be appreciated.
