The ECR is Surly's answer to those times when you just need to escape to the woods for a while to get away from the humdrum of life. Those familiar with this steel mule know it’s designed around plus tires, previously of the 29” variety. A fully loaded 29+ bike is an excellent way to explore and get away for a while… if you’re of a certain stature that is. For smaller riders, it poses several challenges though. And no one wants new problems when they’re in the woods trying to escape old ones. To solve this, Surly redesigned the smaller sizes of the ECR to work with 27.5+ while the larger sizes are still equipped with 29+. All you medium specimens out there get your pick of the litter as Surly is offering that size in both options. Other updates to the ECR include and are limited to: Gnot-Boost rear spacing and a killer new beige paint job. It retains the abundant accessory mounts that we all know and love like Surly Trip Guide for brakes and derailleurs, fender, rack, and Bill/Ted eyelets, and a Rohloff torque arm slot. The 29+ sizes have two water bottle mounts and one set of Three-Pack bosses. You’ve got lots of options to bring all your “necessities” with you and still have room for excess baggage if you’ve got it.
Years ago the Karate Monkey helped start the 29-inch wheel movement and, as time's gone by, many companies – Surly included – have experimented with even more wheel sizes. With so many different types and sizes of tires now on the market, riders have begun to understand the effect that tire width has on overall wheel diameter, and with ample tire clearance, you can see the benefits of multiple wheel sizes all on one bike. 27+ tires have the same rolling diameter as a 29-inch wheel, yet you get all the traction and floatation benefits of extra-wide knobbies. And that's just the tires. The Karate Monkey frame has recently gotten a makeover that includes the addition of features like internal dropper post routing, a new tubeset that uses the same trumpet tubes found on Surly's Instigator 2.0, and a slight tweak in geometry that is more progressive and trail-oriented. The Karate Monkey uses a horizontal dropout with a derailleur hanger that features Gnot-Boost spacing, which gives the rider the ability to run any kind of mountain bike hub they choose. 10 x 135mm QR, 12 x 142, or 12 x 148 Boost will all work in the Karate Monkey frame. The frame uses a 44mm headtube for broad fork compatibility and is ED coated for an added layer of internal protection. If, at any point, you decide you want to throw on some skinny meats, standard 29-inch wheels and tires can be swapped in with no issue. If you want to round-house kick some trail right in the face, the Karate Monkey is your sled. - 100% Surly 4130 chromoly steel frame and fork; double-butted main triangle and 44mm headtube - Adjustable rear dropouts with 145mm Gnot-Boost spacing. Works with 142, 148 12mm thru, as well as 135mm w/ 10/12 washer - Internal dropper seatpost routing with 30.9mm seat tube ID - Clearance for 29 x 2.55 or 27.5 x 3 tires
When your bike touring route takes you over the river and through the woods with a quick jaunt through town for supplies, you can't beat the versatility and smooth riding characteristics of Surly's new Bridge Club. First off, it's a Surly so you know the 'Natch chromoly steel frame and fork are built to handle your entire kit and caboodle, and thanks to the typical overabundance of rack and cage provisions you can mount your gear via traditional racks and panniers, go full bikepacking-style, or mix-up your favorite combo of the two. The Bridge Club rolls on plump 27.5 x 2.4-inch WTB Riddler tires for a blend of low rolling resistance on smooth pavement and confident handling on forest trails. You can also run up to a 2.8-inch wide tire for more flotation, or swap-in a 700c wheel and tire combo if your route includes a lot of on-road riding. A dependable 2x10 drivetrain ensures you'll never run out of gears as you make the push up long climbs, and mechanical disc brakes offer worry-free performance to keep you safe no matter what the weather brings. And, thanks to fully housed cabling and front and rear fender mounts, you can splash through soggy days with a smile. A comfortable Salsa Bend flat bar and WTB Volt saddle complete this relaxed all-terrain tourer.
From rocky and rutted out sand traps, log- and root-covered ribbons of twisty singletrack, and miles of powdery snow, the Ice Cream Truck can handle it all. It's been redesigned for 2019 with frame tweaks that push the ICT more toward a full-on trail bike: shorter chainstays and a longer front-center make it more agile on fast, technical terrain. Highlights include stealth dropper post routing, a threaded bottom bracket shell, and Surly's versatile Universal rear dropout which allows the use of 197 x 12mm thru-axles or 190 x 10mm QR. A Race Face Aeffect direct mount crankset and Shimano/Sunrace 1 x 11 shifting gives you reliable, wide-range gearing, and SRAM Level brakes offer no-nonsense stopping power in all conditions. The ICT rolls on My Other Brother Darryl rims wrapped in 4.8-inch Bud and Lou tires, with clearance for a full 5-inch tire on 100mm rims. Whether you dig the all-purpose nature of the rigid setup or want to add a suspension fork for rowdier outings, this monster truck's ready to jam.
Surly's Krampus rolls fast, holds speed, and devours corners. Surly built its Boosted frame and fork out of tapered and butted chromoly and gave the frame a long top tube and short chainstays, so it's playful, smooth, versatile, and durable. The 29 x 3-inch Dirt Wizard tires on 40mm Alex rims take your trail ride to new heights of fun. These big tires offer increased traction, incredible float, and reduce the need for suspension because the large volume is plenty to smooth the trail. You'll also get a SRAM NX 1x drivetrain, Answer Pro Taper bars, and SRAM Level hydraulic brakes to make you the new master of terrain that used to be out of bounds.
