All-Terrain/Hybrid bikes are great for getting around the city, and getting the heck out of it too
Surly Straggler (Apex), $1549
So what is this Straggler anyway? The easy answer is to say that we added disc brakes to a Cross-Check and this is close to accurate. People have asked us to make a disc version of our highly versatile Cross-Check for a long time now and almost everything about the two are very similar. Straggler is slightly different, though.
The most obvious difference of course is that the Straggler has disc caliper mounts instead of rim brake studs. It’ll accept rotors up to 160mm. The rear dropouts are unique, too. They’re a partially closed horizontal design that accommodates singlespeed or geared drivetrains. They feature stop screws that thread in from the rear to further secure the wheel and to position the rear wheel for optimal shifting, plus a forward-mounted stop screw on the drive side to keep the wheel from slipping forward under the force of your gargantuan legs. The rear dropouts are spaced 135mm instead of 132.5mm like the Cross-Check simply because there are far more options for disc hubs in this spacing.
Surly Cross-Check, $1199
The Cross-Check was the third frame we ever offered. There is no such thing as one bike that can do it all, but the Cross-Check does a good job of most things people use bikes for. It’s a cyclocross bike by design but that’s not how most people use it. It does as good a job getting you across the country as it does getting you across town. It’s at home on the road and on trails, on gravel, and just about whatever else you might run into. It’ll take pretty big tires, or smaller ones if you like. It can be built as a geared bike, a singlespeed or a fixed-gear.
Surly Straggler 650b (Apex), $1549
We think by now, most of you get what Straggler is. It’s a madly versatile bike that can be used for most types of riding and riding surfaces. Better still is that you now have the option of 650b wheel size. 650b wheels were popular for a long time many years ago on ‘Constructeur’ style bicycles and we all know how real shit was back in the day…. 650b wheels strike a nice balance between the benefits of both 26” and 700c sizes. The smaller wheel allows smaller riders to fit well on smaller frames, produces a stronger wheel, makes fitting big ass tires easier and are more agile than their larger counterparts.
Surly Cross-Check Single Speed, $999\
We’ve added a singlespeed Cross Check to the Surly Intergalactic Delicious fleet of complete bikes, and boy howdy it's rootin' tootin'. Avid Single Digit 5 v-brakes, Surly Ultra New model hubs with the nice bearings and the cool fixing bolts, cushy, practical Surly Knard41 tires, Salsa MotoAce riser bar, and Surly proprietary Getaroundit 42 x 17 gearing. Suitable for a broad spectrum of adventurneering, from neighborhooding to farthest reaches of darkest suburbia and beyond. It is, like all our frames, made of 4130 CroMoly steel and it was designed to put a bullet in the head of one-season, one-purpose bikes. Ride it around for a while. Go places, and sometimes take long trips with no planned destination or schedule. Maybe deck it out with racks and fenders. Later, you can make it into something else…drop bars, gears, racks, and bags perhaps. Now go get 'em, tiger.
