• This is the final item I have for sale from my bike collection. Everything else has now been bought by forum members which is fab.

    If you want to know the background to my charity sales it's here https://www.lfgss.com/conversations/3618­97/

    I bought this off a friend and renovated it. I brazed on a new cable routing option for a hub gear, got it powder coated and applied new decals, then took it off for adventure. I did an off-road coast to coast and Mountain Mayhem on it, and it's a lot of fun. The bike can variously be built up as rigid or a hardtail. Flat bar or drop bar, and comes with a set of Surly single-speed wheels.

    Full spec is:

    Karate Monkey 29er frame (medium, I'm 175cm tall), with rigid Surly fork and Rockshox 30 Gold TK 100mm travel 29er suspension fork.
    Alfine 8-speed hub rear wheel with XT front and Mavic A319 rims, with Schwalbe Racing Ralph tyres
    Alfine flat bar shifter and Deore M615 brakes
    Hope headset
    Crank Brothers bar
    Ritchey stem and post
    Charge Spoon saddle
    XT SPD pedals

    Fork is in excellent shape and comes with shock pump and service spares (seals etc)

    You also get a Salsa Woodchipper flared off road drop bar and Salsa Stem with Cane Creek brakes, Avid cable calipers, and a J-Tek bar end shifter if you want to go drop bar. It's an easy swap over process.

    Finally the original KM wheels, which are Surly hubs and Salsa Rims with a pair of WTB tyres.

    This is quite a bit of stuff, so I'd really prefer if someone could pick it up in person from North London. I could arrange UK shipping, but it'd be a bit pricy I suspect.

    I'm looking for £500 for everything. Thanks!

  • Dibs retracted - on closer inspection I'd need a large.

  • Dibs 2.0

  • Wow. £500 is a crazy cheap price for that.
    If that costs £150 to post to France it's still a bargain.
    So 3rd dibs, just in case.

  • (Unlikely) 4th dibs - I can pick up from North London!

  • 5th (🥴) dibs pls!

  • Wow fantastic price! All of these bikes have been great

  • 6th / nth! Can also collect

  • Thanks for all the interest everyone! Someone's taking a look this weekend so I'll update as and when I have more info.
