Took the Monk out for some dirt time during lunch at Schenectady Central Park. Definitely liked the 700C x 45 wheels on the trail but had to keep the speed down for fear of pinch-flatting. The bike handled really well back there and the only problem I had was the pain in my arm and the lack of cush. The rear end is super stiff so it climbs awesome but unless the trails are super smooth single track, this is not the right bike. Still a fun ride though.
