A tip from CSB, Surly is now offering the Karate Monkey as a factory 29" SS! Sweet. I think it's so great Surly is offering their bikes built up as well as just the frame. Like so many of Surly's frames, this one is a bit of a Swiss army knife. Many different options and very customizable. Single speed, geared, disc, rim you name it. Nicely done Surly.
