Sweet.....people who appreciate 1 gear. I roll a Surly Karate Monkey. Previously had a Specialized Rockhopper (geared) and a Santa Cruz Blur (full suspension and geared). Once I got the Blur, I converted the Rockhopper and I was hooked. After a year of collecting dust I unloaded the Blur and haven't looked back.

As you might guess, I'm a fan of big wheels. The Monkey is a 29'r like others have mentioned here. My Monkey is the black one on the left.

If you have a few minutes to burn....here are a few mtb videos I made. All riders in the vid's are on SS's. I'm the camera man.....and I do have a little wreck in there somewhere.

Day time ride #1

Night ride

Night rides.....almost makes me miss it.......

I had one season where I showed up to teh first race having not ridden in the daylight for about 3 months....depth perception was a shade wonky.

I should point out that all the guys in Ryan's video are of highly questionable character.

Not much of a question really.
