I just got the wheels for my new Karate Monkey (built by Mike G). The gold matches up nicely with the gold King headset - I am addicted to matching up parts on pretty much every bike I own :ihih:

I plan on finishing the build this Saturday.

Almost done with the build

Here I am "keepin' it real" with my Surly :ciappa:

I just need to find some old odi lock-on's I have hidden somewhere in my garage.

I have some cable guides coming tomorrow and a spacer kit from Surly. Right now I am using parts off an old cassette. Still undecided about the bar height. I want to get a couple of rides in first.
