27.5-Inch Plus Wheel
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.
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.

If adventure is a creative endeavor, the Salsa Fargo is your muse. With a blend of touring comfort and off-road capability, Fargo lives outside the lines of categorization and urges you to take the scenic route and have fun along the way. On this Fargo Rival 1, you get traction-dripping 3-inch WTB tires on 50mm Sun Ringle Duroc rims, along with the ability to change to either 29er or 29+ as your needs change. The SRAM 1x11 drivetrain pairs a Rival rear derailleur with Apex shifter to provide ample gearing for loaded backcountry trips, while a pair of Apex hydraulic disc brakes deliver outstanding control and ruthless power, especially when you're in the flared drops of the Salsa Woodchipper handlebar. A rugged and smooth-cruising chromoly frame is eager to explore all types of surfaces, and the burly Firestarter carbon fork is strong, stable, and lightweight, slicing deftly through corners even with gear attached to the 3-pack mounts on its legs. Upholding the Fargo's touring cred is an abundance of mounting points everywhere, so you can pack as you please. In addition to the fork’s three-pack mounts, attachment points can be found for front and rear racks and fenders, along with three sets of bottle cage mounts on the front triangle. Adventure awaits, and the Fargo is ready to go far.
