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.
Momentum iRide Rocker
$615.00
Unstoppable style. One look at those super fat tires and you can’t help but smile. Roll down rough city streets, through the park, even on the beach, with the iRide Rocker. Do it all on this fun-loving fattie.

With a rugged yet lightweight ALUXX aluminum frame, 7-speed drivetrain, and powerful disc brakes, it can handle the hills and is perfect for gravel or dirt paths in the park. Special features include a kickstand and built-in cup holder so your beverage travels with you.
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
$1,999.00
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 on 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. 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. The Ice Cream Truck comes with 197mm thru-axle chips and a 2x10 speed Shimano drivetrain. The SRAM Level T brakes offer exceptional modulation in all conditions and all temperatures. 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.
Momentum iRide Rocker
$615.00
One look at the iRide Rocker's super-fat tires and you can't help but smile! Roll down rough city streets, through the park, on the beach, or even out through the snow. This light aluminum frame is built around massive 4-inch wide tires for a fun, cushy ride. The wide-range 7-speed Shimano drivetrain lets you spin up hilly terrain, while the powerful mechanical disc brakes give you excellent stopping power in all conditions. The comfortable saddle and handlebars put you in a heads-up, ride-for-hours position, while a built-in cup holder sets the laid-back tone for your ride.
Giant Reign SX
$4,080.00

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.

$750.00

Salsa Redpoint Carbon X01
$4,199.00
Limitations? Boundaries? Not on Salsa's Redpoint Carbon X01. This trail monster dives headlong into your most demanding off-road expedition, carrying you boldly beyond what you thought possible on a bike. Confidence is key as you roll into the unknown, and the Redpoint offers 150mm of big hit travel with a RockShox Pike Fork and Monarch RT shock. The svelte carbon frame features Split Pivot suspension for exceptional bump compliance, maximum traction, and unbeatable pedaling efficiency. Whether it's an all day grind to the top or ripping berms on the way back home, the Boost-equipped 27.5-inch SRAM Roam 40 hoops provide out of the saddle stiffness and razor sharp handling. And the 2.35-inch tubeless-ready Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires? Loss of traction simply isn't an option. SRAM's X01 drivetrain offers all the range of a traditional 2x setup, with decreased weight and improved mechanical simplicity and reliability. And since the devil is in the details, Salsa pulled out all the stops: a Thomson stem, their own Rustler handlebars and Backcountry lock-on grips, an all-day long, all-day strong WTB Volt Comp saddle, and a RockShox Reverb dropper post.
Salsa Redpoint NX1
$2,899.00
With 27.5-inch wheels, Split Pivot suspension, and 150mm of rear travel Salsa's Redpoint fits nicely into the so-called trail category of mountain bikes. But categories only tell part of this aggressive trail ripper's story. Its low-slung geometry dials-in the pedaling position to give you the best of both worlds: efficient climbing, and confident descending. A RockShox Monarch RT Debonair and 150mm Recon RL fork complement the Split Pivot design, creating maximum traction over all types of terrain — loose, rocky, rooted, buffed — you'll find yourself powering through everything. SRAM's NX 1x11 drivetrain keeps you on the gas with excellent chain retention, and Level hydraulic disc brakes ensure you don't blow a corner on charged descents. WTB Scraper i35 rims paired to Maxxis Minion DHF WT tires lay down a large contact patch, and a KS E30i dropper post wraps-up this build with everything you need to escape into the backcountry.
Surly Bridge Club
$1,200.00
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.
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 Big Fat Dummy
$3,025.00
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.
