 @chachmonkey: Surly really has a bike named like that?

Let me... let me chuckle a bit... oh the irony...

 @WAKIdesigns:

Pretty sure the karate monkey was one of the first 29ers. I've had a few and they're rad
  • 5 1
 @WAKIdesigns: Surly has the best bike names in the business - Karate Monkey, Krampus, Bridge Club, Long Haul Trucker, Ice Cream Truck, Straggler, Ogre, Troll...

 @UtahBikeMike: Gary Fisher had production 29ers long before Surly did.

 @seraph: Aventura cycles made 29ers long before Gary Fisher did. Check out Geoff Apps. Cool stuff!

 @UtahBikeMike: I meant Big Dummy... sounds a bit like those anecdotes about dogs resembling their owners and vice versa... any chance they could make a bike called Douche Beard? Nothing to Surly, not their fault... just like nothing to Audi or Merc... just a special clientelle. It's like being a woman... you never know what kind of freak you will attract. You can make a fatbike with drop bars and then... some dude will buy it to cross Alaska but three days before leaving he will go to an art gallery to watch sculptures made of plastic thrown on the sea shore and he will decide to save the planet. And then start a cafeteria specialized in decaffeinated soy latte and sugar less snacks on soy based oats...

 @pakleni: BC = before christ

 @Trailmaster12: Not quite. johnhartstudios.com/bcstrips/2010/august/bc080110bzd.jpg

One of the all-time great comic strips. Those of us of a certain age fondly remember, or still enjoy, the comics page.

 @lalondep:
And don't forget the awesome Sierra game based off the strip. BC quest for tires.

 @lalondep: Yes. BC, Doonsbury, Haagar the Horrible, Wizard of Id.... So many amazing strips in the 80’s.
It’s all shite now...

 @lalondep: I think the title of the comic strip itself is supposed to be a joke based on Before Christ, so technically the same joke re-cycled (see what I did there?!), so then a double reference and you're both right.

 #4 is awesome as A) I used to play BC’s quest for tires on the Atari in the 80’s and B) now I ride an instinct BC edition

 I guessed Surly Big Dummy for #1, it fits but I guess it's not a mountain bike.

 Neither is the space horse. Partial credit!

 I definitely overthought number two. I was still thinking of Santa Cruz I guess: The Bronze Son.

In hindsight that was a bit of a stretch...
