    When you get it, assemble it, and take it out for a ride, you'll have to post your first Karate Monkey experience.
    Does the perfect bike really exist?

    It's past February. Do you have the Karate Monkey yet? If so, tell us about it.

    I heard there were new frames out of Surly. I've been riding 29s for some time, my old Gary Fisher is wide enough to accomodate the fat tyres. It's a cool ride in the winter.
    Not sure if I'll sign up for one or get a Seamroller, like I want, then there it Spot with some nice SS frames too.

    Your bike mechanic is wise beyond your wildest dreams.

    If you can't be good at one sport then you can be okay at three.

    That's my buddy Mike's. I think you rode w/ him in Florida w/ Dario.

    I've got the moustache bars on my fixed gear and love them! I'm thinking of replacing the beater road bike frame w/ the KM.

    That's an instant classic, right there....reminds me of seeing my first Ritchey Mountain Bike, in '83? '84?
