Surly Ogre
$1,450.00
The Ogre can get you to your job during the week, then way out of town on the weekend. It’s not sluggish on pavement or gravel and can also hold its own on singletrack. Ogre has many of the same features as Troll — horizontal slotted dropouts with Gnot-Boost spacing, a tweaked non-suspension corrected geometry, and a beefy tire clearance — but in a 29er platform. - Surly 4130 chromoly steel, main triangle double-butted frame - TIG-welded, Horizontal slotted with derailleur hanger, Gnot-Boost spacing allows the use of 135mm QR hub, 142 x 12mm thru-axle or 148 x 12mm Boost hubs. Features Rohloff torque arm slot and threaded eyelets for fenders, racks and Surly trailer mounts - Full-length Surly Trip Guide housing line guides for derailleurs and brakes; two sets of bottle cage mounts; upper seatstay threaded barrels, mid- and low-blade fully threaded through-blade fork eyelets; threaded holes for racks, fenders and trailer mounting nuts; Rohloff OEM2 axle plate mounting slot - Disc brakes only. Disc mounts are 51mm IS. Note: rear disc brake is limited to 160mm maximum rotor diameter and requires the use of Surly caliper adaptor (included with frames and bikes) - Frame is ED coated for increased life expectancy - Tire clearance for 29 x 2.5” or 27.5 x 3”
Diamondback Overdrive 29 2
$1,499.99
The classic 29er hardtail — that’s the best way to describe Diamondback's premier aluminum model. They've taken their strong and light aluminum 29er frame and increased the stiffness and handling precision by adding Boost 148 rear spacing and thru-axles front and rear. The Overdrive 29 2 is also dressed in an envy-provoking parts package that includes a plush and confidence-inspiring RockShox Reba RL fork, strong Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and a SRAM GX/NX 1x drivetrain that provides you plenty of granny gear for the ugliest of climbs, without the complexity of a traditional front derailleur system. Thanks to its 29er wheels, cleaning tricky rock sections and log-overs is a whole lot less tricky on this big wheeler, and since you can never have enough traction — particularly on a hardtail — Diamondback equipped this Overdrive with their own Blanchard 25 tubeless ready wheelset.
Surly Karate Monkey
$1,550.00
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
Surly Karate Monkey 27.5+
$1,550.00
The venerable Karate Monkey. When it comes to mountain riding, this bike brings everything you need to the experience and more. It's shod with 27.5 x 3.00 terrain-clawing Dirt Wizards for max traction on singletrack thanks to an aggressive tread pattern and cushy, wide footprint. But there's more to this agile trail runner's set of shoes — thanks to generous frame clearance, you can drop a set of 29-inch wheels in with up to a 2.50-inch tire if you desire something with less bite and similar roll-over capabilities. And, with Surly's Gnot Boost rear dropout spacing, you can comfortably run any kind of mountain bike hub: 10 x 135mm QR, 12 x 142mm, or 12 x 148mm Boost will all work in the Karate Monkey frame. Wheel choices aside, Surly built the updated Karate Monkey with a nod toward modern trail-bike geometry and includes internal dropper post routing, two or three bottle mounts (depending on size), threaded fender eyelets, and all the braze-ons you've come to expect from Surly for attaching racks, cages, and bags galore. Running gear consists of SRAMS's rock-solid NX 1x11 drivetrain with full-length external housing and Level hydraulic disc brakes for reliability when you need it most. Throw on a 140mm suspension fork and this all-rounder turns into a serious trail slayer. For what seems like a simple bike at first glance, the Karate Monkey offers much, much more. Listen to the Monkey and lose yourself in its ways.
Surly Krampus
$1,550.00
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.
Cannondale Trail 2
$1,575.00
With its progressive geometry, impressive construction and high-end features, the Cannondale Trail 2 offers unreal performance and a killer value. The lightweight and stiff C2 aluminum frame is designed with trail-specific geometry that strikes the ideal balance between race-level quickness and confidence-inspiring stability. A RockShox Judy Gold front fork smooths out the rocks and roots with 100mm of travel and WTB tires and rims keep you glued to your line. The Shimano XT/SLX 11-speed drivetrain carries you up and down the hills with crisp shifting capability, and the Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes reliably harness speed in all weather conditions. Cannondale's high-quality aluminum seatpost, stem, and handlebar round out this trail explorer that urges you to push your limits.
Surly Big Fat Dummy Frameset
$1,599.00 - $1,650.00
The Big Fat Dummy is a long tail cargo bike that took a few too many doses of growth hormones. At first glance, you might say that Surly just put bigger tires on a Big Dummy. But if you said that, you'd actually be very wrong so just… don't. Think of Big Fat Dummy as more of a second or third cousin to Big Dummy rather than a brother. They share some of the same DNA and look sort of similar, but they're two very different bikes and really only interact when they both reach for the potato salad spoon at that family reunion that no one really wants to be at anyway. Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to the nitty gritty of what makes this hulking beast of a bike tick. Surly's goal with designing a cargo bike around fat tires was to create the most stable, stiff, and traction-laden ride possible while hauling a ton of stuff. Big Fat Dummy has a longer toptube and slacker headtube than its more svelt cousin giving it a nice, predictable, and stable ride. They also used thinner, lighter tubing to construct its cargo area so while it's an overall burlier bike, there's not much difference in weight. Big Fat Dummy accepts either 10mm or 12mm axles in the rear with a spacing of 190/197mm. That big ‘ol spacing equates to one thing: tire clearance for days. Big Fat Dummy maxes out at a massive 26 x 5.25" tire.* While that large of a tire provides the most traction and stability a bike can possibly offer, it's also a lot of rubber to push and might not be for everybody. Luckily, Big Fat Dummy is also a blast to ride with 3" tires too. It uses the same 100mm suspension-corrected fork as the Wednesday, meaning if you want to add a little squishy-squishy to your ride, you can throw a Bluto on and let ‘er rip. If you intend to carry a passenger on your Big Fat Dummy, Surly requires use of their Dummy Rail Collars. These provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system. In addition, a stoker handlebar set up, found on tandem bicycles, is recommended as well. Make sure to check with seat post manufacturer for stoker handlebar compatibility. All Big Fat Dummy framesets and bikes ship with a Dummy deck, rails, bags, and the aforementioned Dummy Rail Collars so you can immediately start hauling cargo — human or otherwise. Big Fat Dummy is ready and willing to carry all sorts of crap — literally. It's already in use on an organic farm in Ecuador so it's likely that it's hauled some form of manure by now. *Using a 26 x 5.25" tire will cause some drivetrain limitations. For all the nuts and bolts of compatibility read Surly's blog on the subject.

The 2.8-inch wide WTB tires offer loads of traction, turning: “That looks pretty sketchy,” into: “Yep, I just did that.” And, while those wide tires give you some low-tech suspension, the RockShox Judy fork gives you a full 120mm of travel to make the bike even more capable. Durable 27.5-inch WTB rims keep those tires rolling straight and are tubeless-ready for more traction and fewer flats. Shimano serves up a wide-range 11-speed XT/SLX drivetrain to fly up hills and rip back down. A pair of Shimano hydraulic brakes ensure you’re ready for anything with fingertip control and all-mountain power. And, Cannondale’s Stage 3 Ergo Women’s saddle sits atop a TransX dropper post so you are comfortable all ride long, with on-the-fly height adjustability for the ultimate in control.
GT Verb Expert
$1,699.99

We all know that full suspension bikes are fun, but they also provide more traction and help boost confidence, especially for the beginner to intermediate rider. The Verb has a modified Independent Drivetrain system that gives you class-leading technology at a very affordable price. Up front, a RockShox Recon fork serves up 120mm of trail-eating travel, while an X-Fusion air shock soaks up the rough stuff in the rear. 1x11 Shimano SLX-controlled gearing gives you a big gear range with simplicity and low weight, the perfect combo for dominating any trail you encounter.

Surly ECR 27.5+
$1,900.00
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's 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 27.5+ sizes also feature two sets 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.

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.
Surly Pugsley
$1,900.00
The Surly Pugsley may be the original fat bike, but this one is far from the original. Previously a great all-around fat bike, the Pugsley has been redesigned to be an ideal off-road touring and exploration rig. Surly lengthened the chainstays 12mm for stability when loaded and so your heels float effortlessly past panniers. The tweaked rear rack mounts on the dropouts let you center your rack over the wheel, despite the offset rear triangle. Those dropouts will take a 142x12mm thru axle if that's your schtick, but this rig comes with a 135mm QR hub, snug as a bug with a pair of adapter washers. Pugsley brings back the 135mm-spaced offset fork, so you can run a front wheel with a spare cog or freewheel as a bail-out option to swap with the rear if your internally-geared hub freezes up in neutral or you smash your derailleur having too much fun. A plethora of three-pack mounts give you gear-hauling options aplenty, and a Surly Moloko Bar gives your hands damn near as many options as well, so they stay clappably happy even on your longest, story-generating adventures.
Diamondback Overdrive 29C 1 Carbon
$1,999.99

The Overdrive 1 29 C features a stunningly lightweight carbon frame as well as a competitive mix of components that includes RockShox’s Recon Gold RL fork, Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and a simple and precise SRAM NX single-ring drivetrain.

And since this is a 29er we’re talking about, you’ll find those big Blanchard wheels maintain their speed incredibly well and roll easily over rock gardens and roots.
