Check out the 2012 18" Karate Monkey we have up at the shop. It's made from custom 4130 CroMoly steel tubing making the frame and fork, butted where it matters to provide a durable yet resilient ride. The seat tube is curved forward, allowing the rear wheel to tuck under, shortening the wheelbase and increasing rear wheel traction. The crank height provides plenty of ground clearance. The rear “dropouts” are horizontal rear-load style, but with a derailleur hanger.
