The Delicious Commuter
Here is my newest concoction. A Surly Karate Monkey in Red. I've waited a long while for this frame to arrive.
1. A single speed drive with a 36 X 17 ratio. Lots of hills in The Hills District.
2. RaceFace Deus 175mm cranks, a Surly single ring; no ramps or pins and bigger teeth, and Crankbros Eggbeaters.
3. Surly spacer kit and sprocket, also with no ramps or pins and bigger teeth.
4. Sram 'cheap as chips' PG 830 8 speed chain.
5. The wheels are Mavic TN719 rims, Shimano XT M756 6-bolt hubs and Sapim nipples and DB spokes and Shwalbe Marathon tyres in a 32.
6. Shimano Deore hydraulic brakes from 2007 with RT75 rotors.
7. Hope stainless steel BB in gunsmoke. RacFace Deus headset.
8. RaceFace Next carbon post and bars and Deus 100mm stem, Hope spacers and Hed Doctor, and Titec carbon ends and Pro grips.
9. The seat is a Specialized one I knicked from my Big Hit. I pinched the bell from work.
10. For the unfamiliar, the frame is of 4130 chromoly.
