Surly designs and produces durable, versatile bikes, frames, & parts for people who ride a lot. No B.S. Unless you deserve it. Surly has been preaching the benefits of their steel bike frames for years. Steel, they claim, offers a special ride that's “snappy” and comfortable. The people at Surly won't even blink when they tell you that 30 years from now, your Surly bike will ride exactly the same as it does right now. All Surly bike frames are made of cro-moly steel that's tough and durable, yet resilient. On rough roads it provides the stiffness necessary for an efficient ride. And although aluminum can be just as tough, and carbon fiber is effective in insulating against rough roads, steel provides the same features at a significantly lower cost, and is easier to repair.
The Surly product line features a robust variety of bicycles that you can use in any riding situation. The Pavement and Touring series cover our choice of bikes. From these series we choose to sell the Cross-Check, Straggler, Disc Trucker and the decade-old classic Long Haul Trucker. The growing popularity of bicycle touring requires bikes that can carry you and your gear over very long distances in relative comfort. These bikes do exactly that. These bikes also have a lot of clearance to accommodate larger, more comfortable tires and especially the Long Haul Trucker makes a perfect base for building a sturdy 650B porteur or randonneur. Let us inspire you!
Surly couldn’t find a cable hanger they liked which also fit their Constrictor seat post clamp’s oversized bolt. So they made one. Long enough to eliminate kinked rear brake cables, large enough to fit over thick post clamp bolts, versatile enough to work with most other post clamps, and it’s even g..
This tread is made up of low, closely spaced knobs, an effective tread for going fast over varied terrain. Surly chose 41mm because it’s meaty enough to conform to the ground surface, absorb irregularities and provide a decent sized contact patch. Both the 27 and 120tpi casings do a good job and fee..
Over the years our Long Haul Trucker has developed a devoted following. People understand and appreciate the LHT’s dependability and everyday riding comfort, whether they’re cruising to the store or lost in the middle of nowhere. It was designed in all aspects to go the distance in relative comfort ..
Surly’s Long Haul Trucker enjoys a reputation as one of the best riding and most value-packed touring bikes out there. It’s been around long enough to be tested in the real world, in all kinds of places, with all kinds of loads on all kinds of roads.
Sometimes, however, a combination of load, cli..
There is no such thing as one bike that can do it all, but the Cross-Check does a good job of most things people use bikes for. It’s a cyclocross bike by design but it does a good job getting you across the country or across town too. It’s at home on the road and on trails, on gravel, and just about..
So what is this Straggler anyway? The easy answer is to say that Surly added disc brakes to a Cross-Check. Straggler is slightly different, though.
The Straggler has disc caliper mounts instead of rim brake studs. It’ll accept rotors up to 160mm. The rear dropouts are unique, too. They’re a parti..
