KHS Montaña Team 1993

Last summer I heard Surly were making a 650b Knard and I thought I should build a bike around them. Decided to go for a 90's mtb conversion as I found a set of canti's that allowed for sufficient height adjustment. Pieced together with some fav parts, both new and old. Relaxed with just the right aggressiveness, should be good fun on fast trails. And the Knards? I might swap 'em out for something a bit beefier.
