Surly Ice Cream Truck Frameset
$825.00
The Ice Cream Truck goes where most other bikes can’t. Snow, rocks, mud, sand — you name it, and chances are, someone has ridden it on an Ice Cream Truck. Don’t let that terrain-crawling ability fool you into thinking the Ice Cream Truck is slow and sluggish, though. A long top tube (best paired with a short stem) and short stays make it trail-approved and ready to rip. And with 4.8” tires on 100mm rims, “trail” is relative. Show a snowman who’s boss, ride through a sand castle — all while riding the perfect get-away vehicle. Or you can stick to riding terrain that won’t ruin a child’s day. It all starts with Surly's proprietary ED-coated 4130 CroMoly steel. ED coating provides a solid foundation for paint externally while adding a layer of corrosion protection internally. The Ice Cream Truck’s frame is symmetrically-spaced at 190mm and features Surly's MDS dropout system, so you have the option of running a 197mm thru-axle, 190mm geared or a single speed rear end. Each frameset comes with all three MDS chips so you can choose your own adventure. A 132mm wide PressFit 41 bottom bracket allowed Surly to play with the stays a bit more and move them a little further out, creating a much stiffer rear end. If you feel like swapping out the included suspension-corrected, straight blade fork, you’ll have plenty of options thanks to the Ice Cream Truck’s 44mm headtube. In a world full of uncertainties, there’s one thing you can count on: Ice Cream Truck will really take you places. At least when it comes to riding a bike — it can’t do much to help you fix the rest of your life.

Ritchey P-29er Frame
$899.95 - $899.99
Tom Ritchey applied his 40 plus years of racing, designing and building steel mountain bikes into the P-29er. Like all Ritcheys, this bike is born to go fast without sacrificing comfort or durability. Heat-treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic II tubing in their own unique butting profiles results in a frame that balances rough trail compliance with sprint-winning stiffness. The 29er-specific geometry was defined by the best way Tom Ritchey knows: countless hours of saddle time under Tom himself, World Cup legend Thomas Frischknect, and other racers. The result is nimble handling that captures the benefits of the big wheels, stable yet responsive, equally at home on all-day epics or tight, technical singletrack. • Ritchey forged-and-machined 1.5" tapered head tube • Fork: designed for use with 100mm travel forks • Weight: 2,150g (Size: L/19") • Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded

Surly Big Dummy Frameset
$999.00
Big Dummy is a long-tail cargo bike, which means that not only can you haul a serious amount of cargo, different accessories can be added to your Big Dummy frame and deck depending on what you want to carry. Being a dedicated single-piece frame, instead of an add-on to an existing bike, it’s stiffer and resistant to torsional flex, which provides a better ride and longer lasting frame than long-tail add-ons. Like all Surly's frames, it’s made of size specific, 4130 CroMoly steel – a tube set engineered for cargo that sports lots of little touches that you’ve come to love in a Surly, like clearance for big tires and the use of common component sizes. Figure on being able to carry about 200 pounds (90kg) of cargo. The load weight, and how it’s loaded, will affect the handling somewhat. Also, plan on using gears, especially as cargo weight increases. This may seem obvious, but as you get comfy with it, you will use your full range of gears as never before. The included Dummy Rail Collars provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system so you can safely carry a passenger.

Surly Karate Monkey Singlespeed
$1,199.00
The Karate Monkey helped set the standard for 29er geometry. While its tucked-in rear wheel keeps it nimble and maneuverable, its lack of shifting componentry keeps the bike simple — and the rider filled with a cathartic rage.

The Karate Monkey frame has recently been updated to include features like internal dropper post routing, a new tubeset that uses the same trumpet tubes found on their Instigator 2.0, and a slight tweak in geometry that is more progressive and trail oriented. The minimalist component package comes courtesy of SRAM, and a capable Alex wheelset rounds out this trail-ready monster.

Surly Wednesday
$1,499.00
The Wednesday is the result of over a decade of Omniterra design experience distilled into one steel package. It can easily ride over or through most anything Surly's other Omniterra bikes can and then some. With Wednesday, Surly borrowed elements from some of their Trail and Touring models to create an Omniterra whip that can truly handle anything you want to attempt. Want to point it down the side of mountain? Go ahead, roll those dice. And if you make it to the bottom, you’ll be able to ride back to the top for round two. Wednesday’s geometry is spry enough to get you through techy stuff, stable enough for the fast stuff, and doesn’t feel sluggish on terrain-crawling stuff. While Wednesday is plenty confident on terrifying terrain, it also has the chops for any sort of expedition you may want to undertake. Surly gave it all the necessary braze-ons and mounts for whatever accoutrements you feel necessary in your travels. Racks? Front and rear, friend. Fenders? You got it. Bottle mounts? How does triple bottle bosses on both fork legs and the down tube, and two sets of standard mounts on the main triangle grab you? They even gave Wednesday internal routing for a dropper post and Surly Trip Guides to keep everything nice and neat and free of rat’s nests. In the dropout department, Wednesday uses a cast steel, rear-facing, slotted dropout that can exit either rearward or vertically. They’re compatible with either 10mm or 12mm axles and are spaced at 170/177mm. The Wednesday comes outfitted with trusty SRAM GX shifting components and sure-stopping Hayes MX Comp mechanical disc brakes. The Wednesday is a bruiser in a steel package, and it's prepared to barrel through whatever terrain you can think to point it towards.

The drivetrain is ready for anything, too, with SRAM's new NX shifter and rear derailleur, wide-range gears, and a burly SRAM GX 30-tooth crankset. To help you master the most adverse conditions, you get a tough Truvativ riser handlebar as well as Shimano BR-M396 hydraulic disc brakes.

Surly ECR
$1,899.99
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.
