I went down to the LBS with the Diamondback and a bag-o-parts. We configured the fit cycle with the geometry of a 22″ Karate Monkey. It looks like it’ll fit just fine.We called QBP and they have some 22″ frames in stock in that lovely blue.
The build list is still in flux at the moment, but she will probably be wearing these hand-me-downs:
- Nitto mustache bars
- Deore v-brakes
- Dia-compe 287v brake levers
- Dura Ace 9-speed barcons
- Insane-o 48-spoke phil hub/w 8 speed cassette in the rear
- nashbar bear trap pedals
Tires, deraileurs, headset, cranks, and bottom brackets are yet to be determined…
Once I make up my mind, we’re calling in the order, and I might have a monkey by sometime next week!
