The Original Single Speed Commuter Bike Steamroller is the bicycle in its simplest form. While it often gets compared to single speed track bikes, it's much more than that. Built to excel on crumbling city streets, its beefy tire clearance makes it a great choice for minimalist commuters as well as dedicated winter commuters who know the havoc road salt wreaks on drivetrains. As one of the first models we ever produced, Steamroller is truly like a member of the family. And we're talking one we actually like, not your weird Uncle Norman who insists on showing you his magic tricks while always finding a way to ruin Thanksgiving. - Investment cast Surly track dropouts spaced at 120mm - Fender eyelets on the rear and one set of water bottle mounts on the seat tube - Clearance for 700c x 38mm tires Specs: - Rear Dropout Configuration: Horizontal - Rear Hub Spacing: 10 x 120mm - Front Hub Spacing: 9 x 100mm - Brakes: Rim - Caliper (mid reach) - Head Tube: Ø34mm - Steerer Tube: Ø28.6mm (1-1/8") - Crown Race: Ø30mm (1-1/8") - Stock Headset Upper (S.H.I.S.): EC34/28.6 - Stock Headset Lower (S.H.I.S.): EC34/30 - Seat Collar: Ø30mm - Max Chainring (CL): 1x (Track): 50T - Tire Clearance Frame: 700c x 32mm (w/ fenders); 700c x 38mm (w/o fenders) - Tire Clearance Fork: 700c x 32mm (w/ fenders); 700c x 38mm (w/o fenders) - Rigid Fork Spec: 375 x 38mm - Bottle Mounts Frame: 1 Standard - Fender Mounts Frame: Yes
There is no such thing as one bike that can do it all, but the Cross-Check comes mighty close. It's a cyclocross bike by design, but don’t be fooled into thinking that it has only one purpose. This jack-of-all-trades will do just as well getting you across the country as it does getting you across town. At home on the road, on trails, and on gravel, the Cross-Check'll fit pretty big tires, or smaller ones if you like. It can be built as a geared bike, a singlespeed, or a fixed-gear. The Cross-Check’s frame is engineered to supply a comfortable but lively ride. The tubing is CroMoly steel, high quality, custom-drawn, and built to our specifications. It's designed to work with components of popular sizes, meaning you can find both new and old parts to hang on this frame. It will accommodate a wide range of crank types and chainring sizes. It's got accommodations for racks and fenders (front and rear) and, because of its ample tire clearance, you can outfit it to suit where and how you will use it. There's a reason the Cross-Check has remained popular after all these years. The frame is comfy, tough as nails, and super versatile. Surly continues to hear from people for whom the Cross-Check has long been their go-to bike simply because it performs so astonishingly well on any surface.
Straggler is a bikepacking-inspired road/gravel bike mostly at home on pavement but ready for trail duty when called. Born on Gravel. Raised on Pavement Straggler is tuned for cross-over exploration on a wide variety of terrain conditions. It's a day-tripper and a weekender. It's a "rough road" road bike, a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing, a utilitarian townie, a light-duty touring bike and an all-weather commuter. It's a steel gravel bicycle that thrives on the road. Think of it as a "mountain biker's road bike." If you only have room for one bike in your life, Straggler can (and should) be your one and only. Straggler's capabilities go well beyond asphalt. It also lends itself well to light touring setups. We're talking frame bags, seat bags, and "credit card touring" rather than full-blown touring. Straggler also handles our 8- and 24-Pack Racks well, so you have some heavier-duty loading options. - Accommodations for racks and fenders - Forward-exiting horizontal dropouts for singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability - Clearance for 650B x 41mm tires with fenders!
Steel Commuter Bike That Can Do it All There is no such thing as one bike that can do it all, but Cross-Check comes pretty damn close. It's a dyed-in-the-wool commuter and utility rig. It was a "gravel crusher" long before "gravel bikes" existed. Some people have even raced cyclocross on it. Though, we don't necessarily condone that behavior. Cross-Check was the first complete bike we ever offered. Since then, people have modified them hundreds of different ways to suit their riding styles and preferences. There’s a reason that nearly every person who has ever worked for Surly has owned one. - Semi-horizontal dropouts for singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability - Gnot-Rite dropout spacing allows installation of 130 and 135mm hubs - Accommodations for front and rear racks and fenders - Clearance for 700c x 42mm tires with or without fenders
Midnight Special is a road plus bike designed to provide comfort and speed on those all-day rides that extend well beyond fresh pavement. Midnight Special shines on pot-holed, deteriorating pavement and the occasional long stretch of gravel. Its 650B road plus tires eat up road chatter and absorb all the bumps in the road like the champion it was designed to be. When it comes to road bikes, we just want to toss a few bananas into our pockets and see where the road takes us. We seek out varied surfaces on our rides and frequently go from pavement to gravel to worse pavement. Midnight Special allows us to accomplish all of that quite comfortably. - Higher volume tires allow better fine tuning of tire pressure on varying surfaces and create a wider contact patch for increased traction - Modern road standards like flat-mount disc brakes, 12mm front and rear thru-axles, and a 44mm head tube - Clearance for 650B x 60mm or 700c x 42mm tires without fenders (650B x 50mm or 700c x 38mm with fenders)
