I ran out this morning and installed it
Now all my spring changes have been made to the Karate Monkey
LD purple Surly hubs have QR axles with Hope skewers
Front Avid BB-7 brake has been dropped to a 160 rotor (did have an 8 inch)
New SRAM 8 speed chain (old one was beyond stretched)
New Surly stainless seat post clamp
I have been considering painting the frame a different color
But I decided its not worth the time, trouble or expense
Even if I am biting Rottenmac's style
Besides, I like "Skid Mark Brown"
Now that I have used up the nice sunny but windy 70 degree Sunday morning I am gonna pull on some SPD shoes and take the KM up and down the Trolley Trail a couple of times before the temps drop and the predicted rain arrives today.
