Kinesis Gran Fondo Ti Disc Custom Build

The Cross-Check was the third frame we ever offered. There is no such thing as one bike that can do it all, but the Cross-Check does a good job of most things people use bikes for. It's a cyclocross bike by design but that's not how most people use it. It does as good a job getting you across the country as it does getting you across town. It's at home on the road and on trails, on gravel, and just about whatever else you might run into. It'll take pretty big tires, or smaller ones if you like. It can be built as a geared bike, a singlespeed or a fixed-gear.
The adventure build of our new UK gravel frame: do not be limited by what a carbon road bike ‘should’ do, the Terra C affords the freedom to make your own choice. Carve any path without restraint and remove the distinction between road and trail. This is an updated and upgraded version of our hugely popular Terra Gravel, with a completely redesigned frame, new UK adventure geometry and, in this build, your ideal candidate for adventure riding. Whether you’re just looking to take the towpath shortcut on the commute or cutting through wild new territory on the South Downs, the swept bars, 38c tyres and super compact crank set make light work of all but the harshest terrain. The carbon road bike frame is equipped with Innegra impact protection to defend against rock strikes and geometry is designed for control over rough terrain and comfort for long days.
So what is this Straggler anyway? The easy answer is to say that we added disc brakes to a Cross-Check and this is close to accurate. People have asked us to make a disc version of our highly versatile Cross-Check for a long time now and almost everything about the two are very similar. Straggler is slightly different, though.
Years ago the Karate Monkey helped start the 29” wheel movement and, as time’s gone by, many companies – Surly included – have experimented with even more wheel sizes. With so many different types and sizes of tires now on the market, riders have begun to understand the effect that tyre width has on overall wheel diameter, and with ample tire clearance, you can see the benefits of multiple wheel sizes all on one bike. 27+ tires have the same rolling diameter as a 29” wheel, yet you get all the traction and floatation benefits of extra-wide knobbies. And that’s just the tyres. The Karate Monkey frame has recently gotten a make over that includes the addition of features like internal dropper post routing, a new tubeset that uses the same trumpet tubes found on our Instigator 2.0, and a slight tweak in geometry that is more progressive and trail-oriented. The Karate Monkey uses a horizontal dropout with a derailleur hanger that features Gnot-Boost spacing, which gives the rider the ability to run any kind of mountain bike hub they choose. 10 x 135mm QR, 12 x 142, or 12 x 148 Boost™ will all work in the Karate Monkey frame. The frame uses a 44mm headtube for broad fork compatibility and is ED coated for an added layer of internal protection. If, at any point, you decide you want to throw on some skinny meats, standard 29” wheels and tyres can be swapped in with no issue. If you want to round-house kick some trail right in the face, the Karate Monkey is your sled.
