That’s Bryan Rhoads and Todd Fahrner riding a Super Monkey, a sport utility bike built with a Surly Karate Monkey, Xtracycle and Stokemonkey electric motor assist. We’re building one of these up right now, as a Bike Hugger project, and will blog the whole thing this Fall.
For the bike geek, the Super Monkey is a 29 incher with 26 inch wheels. “What the?” you ask … details here.
I shared that look on Bryan’s face, likening it to taking a kid to the fair and putting them on the tea-pot ride for the first time, when I rode the Super Monkey. Besides the utility, it was just absolutely fun.
