Surly Troll
$1,749.00
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 Troll is a bike that has one purpose – and that purpose is to carry you as far away from society as possible.

$3,999.00
The Zig Zag. Our answer to what a modern road bike should be.

We built it to be a ripping fast and efficient machine that shields the rider from road chatter and unnecessary fatigue, allowing them to go further, faster and have more fun. The addition of disc brakes provides confidence in all weather conditions and allows ultimate control on descents. The thru-axles add stiffness and enhance sprinting prowess, ensuring that no power is wasted.

Salsa Beargrease Carbon X01 Eagle
$4,699.00
Beargrease is constructed with a high-modulus carbon fiber frame. This material offers improved stiffness, better vibration damping, excellent durability, and weight savings compared to other frame materials. Its carefully designed geometry results in a fat bike that rides like a trail bike—it’s stable, steers well in loose conditions, and remains nimble and agile despite the massive wheels and tires. A low bottom bracket height is also key, keeping the rider’s center of gravity low, and making dabbing, dismounting, and remounting easier. Beargrease rolls on 27.5 x 3.8" wheels and tires. For groomed snow or dirt, the increase in diameter provides increased rollover, a longer contact patch, and the flotation of a 5" tire without the added rolling resistance. It’s also compatible with 26" and 29" wheels for dialing in the fit or terrain-dependent performance. The Beargrease Carbon frame features fully sleeved internal cable routing. This improves shifting performance in poor conditions, increases time between maintenance intervals, and makes running new cables and housing a breeze. It’s designed for the best drivetrain performance while maintaining narrow fat bike crank arms for less knee stress, with rider-friendly narrow Q-Factor cranks, a 1x optimized frame design, and room for up to a 32t max chainring. Beargrease Carbon features numerous accessory mounts, including toptube bosses for a Salsa EXP Series Toptube Bag (sold separately), 1 – 2 water bottle mounts inside the frame triangle (depending on frame size), and an accessory mount underneath the downtube. Plus, it’s compatible with dropper seatposts for true trail bike riding experiences. Featuring a full carbon design, the Kingpin Deluxe Fork is lightweight and durable and provides an amazing array of accessory bosses to help you make the most of your fat bike: dual sets of Three-Pack bosses on each leg accept bottle cages or our Anything Cage accessory, lowrider mounts work with our Down Under front rack for a traditional touring setup, and internal dynamo hub wire routing keeps the front end clean for those upgrading to dyno hubs. Beargrease Carbon X01 Eagle doesn’t just roll over anything, it flies. This is the ultimate fat bike designed to convert strength and determination into speed. It is built with a carbon frame, 80mm Mulefut SL rims paired with DT Swiss 350 hubs, and a SRAM Eagle X01 drivetrain for unrivaled performance.
Cannondale SuperSix EVO Carbon Disc Ultegra
$4,200.00
The SuperSix EVO is a road bike that represents the best possible blend of aerodynamics and low weight. Its advanced frame design features highly truncated airfoil tube shapes that offer the same weight, and equal or better stiffness, than round tubes, but reduce drag by up to 30%. The SuperSix EVO lineup has always been known for its elegantly smooth ride quality, and Cannondale's latest iteration is even smoother. The new SAVE rear stays, integrated binder, and 27 KNØT seat post increase compliance by 18%—a massive benefit that riders will certainly appreciate, especially on longer days. Cannondale's proprietary high-strength, high-stiffness carbon construction features an advanced matrix of intermediate modulus fibers that together create a frame that's light, durable, and lively. For additional comfort and capability on all kinds of roads, the SuperSix EVO will easily fit the largest tire size the brake caliper will allow (28mm for most brakes). Offering further aerodynamic improvements, the disc version has a unique design that routes the brake lines through an opening in the front of the headtube for minimal drag and headache-free serviceability. Considering every detail, the bike makes use of Speed Release dropouts that combine the benefits of added thru-axle stiffness and the convenience of a QR. The lightest disc brake road frameset Cannondale's ever made, the SuperSix EVO has a racy geometry and stiffness for explosive speed. - HollowGram Si Carbon Disc wheelset - Shimano Ultegra wide-range drivetrain - Upgraded Cannondale 2 bar/stem
Santa Cruz 5010 CC X01
$6,899.00
The 5010 turns obstacles into features. Its nimble, poppy feel makes even the most mundane rides feel like they're loaded with features to hop, skip and jump over. It's the kind of bike that makes new trails feel as familiar as the back of your hand. 27.5 is the fun-sized wheel size. Smaller wheels provide an ideal balance between toughness and weight savings, making them the most fleet-footed (or quick-fingered) whether launching logs or weaving through stumps. With its quick and agile character, the 5010 has become a go-to plaything for progressive riders the world over and the only contender on any backyard trails. It’s a bike that goes harder than its vital stats may suggest. A 140mm-travel fork is paired with 130mm at the rear, the lower-link VPP configuration of which leaves you feeling there’s a lot more travel at hand. And, you can choose how out of hand you want to get, as this pocket rocket fits all sizes and types of rear shocks. It’s no handful either. The relatively slack head angle makes it predictable to steer, the relatively low BB height turns like it's on tracks, and the short chainstays make this plaything easy to pick up and throw around. No matter how much of a big kid you are, the bike grows with you. We’ve tailored the geometry so frame size is matched to size-specific chainstay lengths, and super-low standover heights make it feel (almost) like that BMX you had as a kid. Okay, perhaps that’s a bit nostalgic, but the 5010’s certainly a perfect gateway to the highs only proper mountain biking can offer. The 5010’s balance and poise can turn any rider from cautious neophyte into a fully-fledged flyer. The legendary Santa Cruz fit, finish, and quality construction make this pocket rocket tougher than a Tonka toy. Fun and games are guaranteed, and the frame, linkages, and optional Reserve wheels come with a lifetime warranty. So don’t be afraid, roll up your sleeves and go get creative. - Carbon CC 27.5" 130mm Travel VPP - RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate shock - RockShox Pike Ultimate, 140mm fork - SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain - SRAM G2 RSC brakes

Surly Troll Frameset
$699.00
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 Steamroller Frameset
$499.00
When a simple bike is done right, every ride puts a smile on your face. Surly's Steamroller is one such bike. It started long ago with the idea of using a track bike as a quick-getaway machine in urban landscapes and has evolved into the slightly more road-oriented, steel-framed city skipper it is today. The Steamroller is built from 4130 chromoly for durability and pleasant ride qualities, and trades Surly's typical commuter-friendly touches for straightforward performance. Dodge potholes, take impromptu shortcuts, and carve your way through the downtown hustle – it's full-on and flat-out when you're Steamrollin'.
Surly Steamroller Frameset
$499.00
Whether you're commuting to work, turning left on the track, or just cruising the city streets, Surly's Steamroller is your rig of choice!

Salsa Warbird Carbon Frameset
$1,999.00
Warbird is Salsa's gravel race bike, built off years of experience racing in some of the nation’s premier gravel events. It's designed to survive and thrive on anything from the often-hazardous B-roads that make up much of the Midwest gravel scene to the fire roads that climb to the heavens on the coasts. - High-modulus carbon frame with rear thru-axle dropouts and rear rack compatibility via Rack-Lock seat collar (sold separately) - Class 5 vibration reduction system dramatically increases comfort - Waxwing carbon fork featuring a 12 x 100mm thru-axle, Three-Pack and fender mounts, mid-blade eyelets, dynamo cable routing, and flat-mount brake standard - Full-frame internal cable routing for Di2 and mechanical brakes - Toptube bag mounts on all sizes, 3 bottle mounts on sizes 56cm and up - Clearance for 40mm travel suspension forks and internal dropper post routing (1x set-ups only) - Enhanced geometry with added clearance for up to 700c x 45mm, or 650b x 54mm (2.1") - Headset included
Surly Cross-Check Frameset
$525.00
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.
Surly Cross Check Frameset
$525.00
Cross-Check is a tough-as-nails, super-versatile road bike that performs astonishingly well on any surface. 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 or 135mm hubs - Accommodations for front and rear racks and fenders - Clearance for 700 x 42mm tires with or without fenders

Norco Aurum C7 Framekit
$2,999.00
Poise and grace aren't typically used to describe a blazing DH run, but one ride aboard Norco's Aurum will have you stoked about the refined composure of this speed fiend's character. Precision carbon fiber engineering gives the Aurum's frame loads of stiffness for pinpoint control, while the RockShox Vivid RC2C Coil rear shock returns a supple, planted feel and big-hit capability when you need it most. The Aurum — Latin for “gold” — earned its name by turning the most challenging terrain features into advantages over other riders. Devour steep, gnarly sections with high-speed control and push your limits whether you’re doing park laps or racing against the clock.
Surly Pack Rat
$1,475.00
Over the years, Surly has been finding new and better ways to haul stuff on the front of their bikes — from fork braze-ons to racks to bags. The Pack Rat is the culmination of all those years and is specifically designed around porteur-style racks and front-loading optimization. Why would someone want to strap a bunch of crap to the front of their bike? Glad you asked. Having your stuff in front of you means it’s close at hand and easily accessible. It also allows for better weight distribution. We’ve all ridden with a pannier full of groceries. Some of us have wiped out around a sketchy corner and watched as our precious eggs and bananas go flying every which way in an act of Mario Kart-level carnage. A front load keeps the bike nimble and allows you to more efficiently use your body English to steer from the rear and avoid such a super market massacre. The drawback with front-loading on a lot of bikes, however, lies in how it affects the bike’s handling. The weight pulls you through turns in an awkward sort of way as if the load is doing the steering and you don’t even have control over your own life anymore. It makes for an overall less enjoyable ride. The Pack Rat’s front cargo-specific design eliminates that steering issues but also rides great without cargo. There’s no need to load it down with cans of beans every time you want to go for a ride. Unless that’s your thing. We’re not here to tell you how to live. In an effort to jumpstart your front cargo carrying dreams, Surly includes a 24-pack rack on the complete bike version. The Pack Rat rolls on 26” wheels in the smaller sizes and 650b wheels in the larger ones. Smaller diameter wheels keep the weight of the load lower than a 700c wheel would, thereby improving handling and ride feel. Pack Rat’s fork also includes some handy internal routing for generator hubs so you can safely ride off into the night. Dedicated commuters, credit card tourers, those who enjoy the occasional sub-24 campout, and sweaty back people looking to leave their backpack behind need look no further than the Pack Rat.
