Didn't realize Chromag had a full build for the Monk. Not a bad build or colorway.

We always have and always will ship to states. We cover North America. We also stock more components than in comparison to the other distribution so we have more overall dartmoor selection. We also do free shipping to the states in a lot of cases which people always seem to not know or be confused about.

Thanks for clarifying!

Hey, is there any consensus on what specifically makes a DJ bike more beginner friendly? Things like slacker head angle, medium length chain stay, steel? What DJ bike would you recommend to a beginner with mid end budget? (ideally available in Canada)

I'm also curious what people in this thread think about a beginner getting an NS Surge with 26 inch wheels, 120mm fork, and a 1x11 drivetrain as a do it all bike? (Mostly trail, with learning how to ride small/medium sized dirt jumps, pump track and beginner street)

Will riding the NS Surge on street, pump track and DJ's be significantly tougher/harder to learn for a beginner? I'm not looking to hit large gap jumps or get super technical on the street, and I still remember drooling over a 2006 Kona Cowan with chainstays that are longer than this bike haha.

Could someone please offer some advice?

ZMCycle, if I came into your store with these questions what would you say? Give me the sales pitch Razz

I'll message privately to avoid selling on the threads. But I think most would agree against surge it's more agreesive hardtail and it won't give the exact feel you would want for dirt jumping. It might work ok on pump track but I'd suggest a happy medium between that with a 4x frame.

Oh much better. I got scared and threw my bike sadly I got my full rotation and I would have landed wheels down. Instead I threw my bike 15 feet in the air. So glad that's all that broke

Not been on here in a while but thought it may be a good place to ask as i see a lot of lowered 36's.
which fox 36 models can go to 100mm? i have seen some stuff about them having lower limits depending on original travel, would a fox 36 rc2 factory series originally 180 be impossible? think its 2013. Also are talas forks just to be avoided for this sorta use?

Hi mate, My fox 36 floats are 2012. I hear after this year they have the locking pin to set travel and can only go down to 140 or so. i may be wrong about that being the reason why but i was told not to buy models after 2012 if you want to lower them to that low. I run mine at 90mm from an original travel of 160 using travel spacers and they are a bomb proof fork. Avoid the talas definitely it's 100% all about floats.

depends what travel the 36 starts out with. I got my 2015 36 float down to 110mm. The 160mm float can go down to 110mm, 180 and 170mm can only go to 130mm.

That complete build is nuts. I wish they offered a more sensible build with a Manitou Expert DJ fork.
