2019 Surly Karate Monkey with the accompanying Revelate Designs frame bag. This bike is almost new -- I bought it just a few months ago and have taken it on a handful of overnighters. Built, ridden, and maintained by a professional bike mechanic (that's me). Just detailed and tuned yesterday.
The Karate Monkey is a super versatile bike. Great for ripping single track in Pisgah, Dupont, etc. Also an amazing bikepacking rig. Steel is real, y'all. Tubeless, 27.5 tires run over everything. Short chainstays make it climb like a goat. Low bottom bracket makes for super stable ride even under load. More barnacles than a shipwreck. Sram NX Eagle drivetrain and Level brakes are solid and reliable. I could go on, or you can just check out Surly's page:
Like I said, the bike is only a few months old and is in excellent shape. Minor cosmetic damage to the paint from where the bags have rubbed. Retails for $1,550 and the bag goes for $180. $1,100 gets you both, and you won't have to take it to the shop right away to get it tuned.
Happy to answer any questions. Serious inquiries only please.
