Full of fast, built to last Caution: X-Caliber will get you hooked. It packs all of Trek’s XC race hardtail experience into a light, fast bike that pairs the right wheel size with each frame size. Nothing beats the efficiency, simplicity, and straight-up fun of an X-Cal hardtail in 29er or 27.5". Great for XC racing, or simply shredding singletrack. - All-new lightweight Alpha Gold Aluminum frame delivers a phenomenal ride quality - Shorter chainstays and Boost141 hub spacing for increased agility and clearance for wider tires - Updated geometry and E2 tapered head tube for more confident handling - Sleek internal routing protects cables and accommodates dropper post upgrades - 15.5-inch frame: 27.5-inch wheels - 17.5—23-inch frames: 29-inch wheels
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.
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.
Surly Ice Cream Truck
$2,000.00
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 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 ECR
$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 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.

The Lady rolls on lightweight Alex/Novatec wheels with grippy Schwalbe Rocket Ron 27.5-inch tires, has a 44mm headtube, short chainstays, and classic good looks. Rounding out this beauty are Salsa cockpit components, a quality All-City saddle, and the finishing details you've come to expect from AC, like a custom seat collar and signature single-speed disc dropouts.
All-City Log Lady Frameset

The frame accommodates 27.5-inch wheels, has a 44mm headtube, short chain stays, and is corrected for a 100mm suspension fork — should you choose to swap out. All of the All-City signature details are there, including signature single-speed disc dropouts, custom seat collar, and custom headtube badge.

Fuel EX blends the best of both worlds in one uncompromising package. - Capable and stiff 130mm frame is 29-inch and 27.5+ compatible - Boost 148/110: stronger wheels, more tire clearance, shorter stays - Exclusive suspension tech with ABP and Full Floater - Straight Shot stiffness, Knock Block frame defense
Surly ECR Frameset
$699.00
What does ECR mean? Anything you want it to. Go camping, ride the Divide Trail, disappear into the woods, and conquer any road. Surly's ECR is a super capable camping machine/trail bike that's outfitted to explore wherever you point the front wheel. Surly's favored chromoly tubing damps road buzz and provides a nimble, responsive ride. The heart of the ECR is the 29+ wheel capability, with clearance for 29 x 3.0-inch tires. Fat tires mean smooth-rolling traction, stability to spare, and a touch of suspension over the roughest terrain. On top of all that, frame eyelets galore are just waiting for racks, fenders, and whatever else to make this your pedal-powered escape pod.
Surly Instigator 2.0 Frameset
$599.00
Say hello to Surly's rowdy, trail-shredding Instigator 2.0. The no-nonsense chromoly frame is made for charging hard and going big. It's super tough, yet handles nimbly and accelerates like mad. The heart of the bike is Surly's 26+ platform which has clearance for 50mm-wide rims and 2.75-inch tires, so you get endless traction and the rollover-action of a 27.5-inch wheel, coupled with the snappy, go-fast responsiveness of a 26-incher. The geometry is dialed for a 140mm travel suspension fork and features a long top tube and short rear end for more of the same fun. And this thing is versatile, the frame comes with dropouts for rolling singlespeed, or geared with a quick release or a 142x12mm through-axle with a Shimano direct-mount hanger.
Surly Ice Cream Truck Frameset
$825.00
Surly's Ice Cream Truck turns up the volume on fat. With unmatched traction and float courtesy of super wide tires (up to 4.8-inches wide!), and the flickable geometry of your favorite trail bike, this fatty feels frisky, limber, and ready for action. The symmetrically spaced 190mm rear end uses Surly's Modular Dropout system for an array of rear axles choices. 197mm thru-axle? 190mm geared? Singlespeed? All equally plausible possibilities with the Ice Cream Truck. A 44mm headtube provides fork options, and the frameset ships with a suspension-corrected, 150mm fork with a 15mm thru-axle. Surly's proprietary 4130 chromoly steel and corrosion-fighting ED coating add a hefty dose of tough to this bike. Now, where do you want to ride your Ice Cream Truck?
Surly Wednesday Frameset
$650.00
Wednesday is a frame with a decade of Surly's Omniterra design experience distilled into one steel package. Wednesday can ride over the same type of pretty much anything all of their other Omniterra bikes can, but they borrowed elements from both their Trail and Touring categories to create an Omniterra ride that can truly handle anything you want to attempt. Want to point the thing down a mountain and roll those dice? Wednesday has geometry spry enough to get you through the techy stuff, stable enough for the fast stuff, and doesn’t feel sluggish when you have to ride back to the top. It also has the chops for any sort of expedition you may want to undertake. It has plenty of bottle mounts; triple bottle bosses on both fork legs and the down tube; standard bottle mounts on the seat tube and underside of the down tube; plus rack mounts on the frame and fork and fender eyelets on the dropouts, along with barrel bosses on the crown, fork legs and mid-blade, thru-blade eyelets on the fork as well. It also has internal dropper post routing and Surly Trip Guides to manage all the housing and cables on your frame with style. Wednesday also has its very own dropout design as well – a rear-facing, slotted dropout that can use either 10mm or 12mm axles and exit rearward or vertically. They’re cast steel and spaced at 170/177mm. Wednesday gives you a lot of options in the tire clearance category. In the full-forward, short chainstay position you can run 26 x 3.8? tires on 80mm rims and in the full-rearward, longer chainstay position you get the option of 26 x 4.6? tires on an 80mm rim. Wednesday is made out of Surly's own proprietary 4130 CroMoly steel and is ED coated for extra protection from the elements.
Surly Karate Monkey 27.5+ Frameset
$675.00

If, at any point, you decide you want to throw on some skinny meats, standard 29” 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.
Surly Wednesday Frameset
$650.00
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 our other Omniterra bikes can and then some. With the Wednesday Frameset, 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.
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.
Surly Troll Frameset
$650.00 - $675.00
Off-road touring can be a zesty enterprise, but it’s not without its perils. Bicycles are simple machines that are extremely efficient, but all simple machines carry along with them the chance of breaking down. This efficiency can get you in trouble if your bike decides to break down far away from the comforts of your parent’s basement. If you’re going to ride your bicycles where no one can see, you better take gear that’s up to the task. Troll is up to the task. Surly's Troll was once a simple mountain bike frame with a few extras that made it nice for touring. The Troll has evolved into a frame that has been pushed deeper into the category of off-road touring. Its geometry is no longer suspension corrected, which gives it more room for a larger frame bag. The chainstay yoke has been redesigned to be fully compatible with 26+ tires and comes with the always-comfy Jones Loop bar. The dropouts still allow you to run disc brakes, fenders, a Rohloff hub, and racks simultaneously. It also comes with more braze-ons than you thought possible – there are four triple bottle mounts on the fork alone (don’t get excited, you can only run one Anything Cage per fork leg), as well as two more triple bottle mounts on the down tube. Troll is a bike that has one purpose – and that purpose is to carry you as far away from society as possible.
Surly Big Dummy Frameset
$1,050.00
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.
