    Comments about Surly Karate Monkey Fork:

    I bought this fork to replace a heavy and unnecessary Suntour 700c suspension fork on my Scott Sportster P55 commuter bike.

    Fit and finish is excellent, installation was a breeze, and the fact that it compensates for the longer suspension fork keeps the bike's geometry close to spec.

    It's rigid and feels strong. Also added a cable disc setup and there's not a ton of flex under heavy braking.

    Highly recommended for replacing a heavy, worthless commuter/comfort suspension fork.

    Comments about Surly Karate Monkey Fork:

    I have been transforming my Specialized Crosstrail into a rigid singlespeed touring bike, and this fork was the final â€" and perfect â€" touch. Besides the new geometry provided, the fork rides smoothly and with a solid feeling. Just perfect.

    Comments about Surly Karate Monkey Fork:

    The Surly Karate Monkey fork has done the job for me. It works best for me when riding on the road, where the harshness is less apparent. When I'm on the trail, I usually put on a carbon rigid fork that has some more compliance.
