Wednesday is a frame with a decade of Surly's Omniterra design experience distilled into one steel package. Wednesday can ride over the same type of pretty much anything all of their other Omniterra bikes can, but they borrowed elements from both their Trail and Touring categories to create an Omniterra ride that can truly handle anything you want to attempt. Want to point the thing down a mountain and roll those dice? Wednesday has geometry spry enough to get you through the techy stuff, stable enough for the fast stuff, and doesn’t feel sluggish when you have to ride back to the top. It also has the chops for any sort of expedition you may want to undertake. It has plenty of bottle mounts; triple bottle bosses on both fork legs and the down tube; standard bottle mounts on the seat tube and underside of the down tube; plus rack mounts on the frame and fork and fender eyelets on the dropouts, along with barrel bosses on the crown, fork legs and mid-blade, thru-blade eyelets on the fork as well. It also has internal dropper post routing and Surly Trip Guides to manage all the housing and cables on your frame with style. Wednesday also has its very own dropout design as well – a rear-facing, slotted dropout that can use either 10mm or 12mm axles and exit rearward or vertically. They’re cast steel and spaced at 170/177mm. Wednesday gives you a lot of options in the tire clearance category. In the full-forward, short chainstay position you can run 26 x 3.8? tires on 80mm rims and in the full-rearward, longer chainstay position you get the option of 26 x 4.6? tires on an 80mm rim. Wednesday is made out of Surly's own proprietary 4130 CroMoly steel and is ED coated for extra protection from the elements.

The frame is constructed from custom, top-shelf titanium with a fast-handling geometry to deliver the stiffness needed to whip through tight turns and accelerate with instant power, while super-short chainstays make it easy to lift over obstacles so you can stay with the flow. Run it as a 27.5+ with up to 3-inch tires for maximum fun, or go for efficiency with a 29er wheelset — with Salsa's Alternator Dropouts you get an impressive grip of wheelset and drivetrain options to suit your style and intention.
When it comes to having things your way, no bike is as accommodating as the Salsa Woodsmoke. Make it your cross-country 29er, a 27.5+ rowdy trail ripper, or a 29+ bikepacking monster truck — with clearance for up to 3-inch wide tires, you'll never be at a loss for finding new places to ride. A huge front triangle accepts large frame bags for bikepacking adventures, and internal shifter and dropper post routing ensures your bike's important parts work when they need to. Big wheels. Big plans. Big fast fun.
Few can claim to have played a bigger role in the evolution of the mountain bike than Tom Ritchey. And he's still at it. The original Timberwolf debuted in 1984 as Tom's answer to the growing demand for a mountain bike that could handle more of anything. Reborn 30 years later, the Timberwolf is a hardtail incarnation of an all-mountain trail bike that can shred anything you throw at it. Designed around 650B wheels, the Timberwolf is agile and fluid whether bushwacking the mountainside or carving single track. It's the bike you won't be able to stop riding. - Optimized for 140mm-travel fork - Geometry measured at 105mm (140mm fork with 25% sag) - Designed for use with travel-adjustable forks - Forged and machined tapered head tube—lighter than standard integrated designs - Trail specific geometry to handle a more aggressive terrain and riding - Headset: Integrated 1.5" tapered - Upper bearing: 41.8mm OD / IS42/28.6 (S.H.I.S.) - Lower bearing: 52mm OD / IS52/40 (S.H.I.S.) - Rear dropout convertible between 142 x 12mm and Standard QR versions (ships with 142 x 12 + axle) - 30.9 seat tube with internal dropper post routing - Fits tires up to 2.4" - Weight: 2410g / 5.31 lbs (S/15", frame only)
Welcome to the world of no-fuss-sus! Heller's Barghest is a 27.5+ full-suspension trail tamer that’s itchin’ to shred right outta the box. The get-down-to-business, long and slack full carbon frame with a 130mm rear shock leaves little doubt about Barghest’s intentions. If the search for trail defines you, the Barghest frame is your perfect match.

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. For all the nuts and bolts of compatibility read Surly's blog on the subject.
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 they're 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.
Surly's Ice Cream Truck turns up the volume on fat. With unmatched traction and float courtesy of super wide tires (up to 4.8-inches wide!), and the flickable geometry of your favorite trail bike, this fatty feels frisky, limber, and ready for action. The symmetrically spaced 190mm rear end uses Surly's Modular Dropout system for an array of rear axles choices. 197mm thru-axle? 190mm geared? Singlespeed? All equally plausible possibilities with the Ice Cream Truck. A 44mm headtube provides fork options, and the frameset ships with a suspension-corrected, 150mm fork with a 15mm thru-axle. Surly's proprietary 4130 chromoly steel and corrosion-fighting ED coating add a hefty dose of tough to this bike. Now, where do you want to ride your Ice Cream Truck?
Years ago the Karate Monkey helped start the 29” wheel movement and, as time’s gone by, many companies – Surly included – have experimented with even more wheel sizes. With so many different types and sizes of tires now on the market, riders have begun to understand the effect that tire width has on overall wheel diameter, and with ample tire clearance, you can see the benefits of multiple wheel sizes all on one bike. 27+ tires have the same rolling diameter as a 29” wheel, yet you get all the traction and flotation benefits of extra-wide knobbies. And that’s just the tires. The Karate Monkey frame has recently gotten a make over that includes the addition of features like internal dropper post routing, a new tubeset that uses the same trumpet tubes found on our Instigator 2.0, and a slight tweak in geometry that is more progressive and trail-oriented. The Karate Monkey uses a horizontal dropout with a derailleur hanger that features Gnot-Boost spacing, which gives the rider the ability to run any kind of mountain bike hub they choose. 10 x 135mm QR, 12 x 142, or 12 x 148 Boost will all work in the Karate Monkey frame. The frame uses a 44mm headtube for broad fork compatibility and is ED coated for an added layer of internal protection. If, at any point, you decide you want to throw on some skinny meats, standard 29” wheels and tires can be swapped in with no issue. If you want to round-house kick some trail right in the face, the Karate Monkey is your sled.
The Karate Monkey frame features updated, progressive trail geometry, a new tubeset, and Surly’s Gnot-Boost rear dropout system to support multiple drivetrain and wheel size configurations. - 100% Surly 4130 chromoly steel frame and fork; double-butted main triangle and 44mm headtube - Tubeset uses the same trumpet tubes found on Instigator 2.0 frame - Adjustable rear dropouts with 145mm Gnot-Boost spacing works with 142 x 12, 148 x 12mm, and 135mm w/ 10/12 washer - Internal dropper seatpost routing - 30.9mm seat tube ID - Clearance for 29 x 2.55 or 27.5 x 3 tires
Surly's Krampus rolls fast, holds speed, and devours corners. It's designed for 29 x 3-inch tires, offering increased traction, incredible float, huge rollover, and low-fi suspension to take your trail ride to new heights of fun. Surly built this 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. Boost front spacing keeps you current with the latest MTB tech, and, "Gnot Boost," rear spacing means you can run any the rear hub you want: 135 x 10 QR, 142 x 12mm, or 148 x 12mm thru axles. This frameset also offers internal dropper post routing so you're granted a license to get rowdy, which you really can't help but do on a Krampus.
The Surly Lowside is the bike that gets you across town for a quick rip on singletrack, then over to the bar for a night out. It’s the bike you turn to when you’re not entirely sure what the night has in store. It’s the bike to grab when you want to have just as much fun riding to the trail as you do on the trail, itself. Singlespeeding is an integral part of Surly’s DNA, and the Lowside continues the tradition, by taking a simpler approach to trail riding. - 100% Surly 4130 chromoly frame, main triangle is double-butted; 1 1/8" threadless chromoly fork - Singlespeed "specific" (derailleur hanger: yes; Trip Guides: no) - Dropper post routing - Gnot-Boost rear spacing - Front and rear thru-axles - 26 x 3" or 27.5 x 2.8" tire clearance
If you’re like us, your bike needs will likely change by the day, week, month or year. Ogre will get you to your job during the week, then way out of town on the weekend. It even has the chops to handle a cross-country trek or nine. It’s not sluggish on pavement or gravel and can also hold its own on singletrack. Ogre is designed to be the ultimate steel utility vehicle. It relishes in those “take-the-long-way-home-and-find-some-beverages-along-the-way” sort of commutes. You can also haul enough crap on it that you don’t even have to go home if you don’t want to. For this year, we simplified Ogre a bit. We removed the canti studs, so it is now a disc brake-only beast. Now, before you start yelling at us about how the canti studs were the only reason you were even considering buying an Ogre and now we’ve left you contemplating your very existence in this ultimately-doomed universe, hear us out. Rim brake 29er rims — like the ones that you would need to have to make use of those canti studs in the first place — are becoming increasingly harder to find. We could have given you a feature that you’d end up not really being able to use in the future but what kind of monsters do you think we are? To quench your unquenchable thirst for rim brakes, check out the Troll. As far as other updates to the frame go, that about sums it up. Ogre still has everything else you’ve come to know and love: two water bottle mounts, four sets of three-pack bosses, mid- and low-blade fork eyelets, threaded holes for racks, fenders, and trailer mounting nuts, and a Rohloff OEM2 axle plate slot. It still features horizontal-slotted dropouts with Gnot-Boost spacing, a tweaked non-suspension corrected geometry, and a beefy tire clearance. It’s still fully compatible with both 29 x 2.5” and 27.5+ tires. In the complete bike version, we’ve opted to go with a 1x drivetrain and a flat handlebar. We typically try to avoid BS cliché terms like “Do-It-All” or “Swiss Army Knife of Bikes”, so we’ll just say that Ogre can probably handle most of the ideas that are bouncing around in your head.
If you’re like us, your bike needs will likely change by the day, week, month, or year. Surly's Ogre can get you to your job during the week, then way out of town on the weekend. The latest version of the Ogre has received some fantastic updates, including horizontal slotted dropouts with Gnot-Boost spacing, a tweaked non-suspension corrected geometry, and a beefier tire clearance — all in a 29er/27.5+ platform. Ride it any day of the week; it’s not sluggish on pavement or gravel and can also hold its own on singletrack. - Gnot-Boost spacing allows the use of 135mm QR hub, 142 x 12mm thru-axle, or 148 x 12mm Boost hubs. - Full-length Surly Trip Guide housing line guides for derailleurs and brakes - Two sets of bottle cage mounts - Disc and rim brake compatible with removable post cantilever pivots - Upper seatstay threaded barrels with mid- and low-blade fully threaded through-blade fork eyelets - Threaded holes for racks, fenders, and trailer mounting nuts - Rohloff OEM2 axle plate mounting slot - Tire clearance for 29 x 2.5” or 27.5 x 3”
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. Surly also adorned this frame with their Gnot-Boost spacing, allowing you to use any mountain bike hub whether it be 135mm QR, 12 x 142mm thru-axle, or 12 x 148mm Boost hub. The chainstay yoke has been redesigned to be fully compatible with 26+ tires and the complete bike comes with the always-comfy Surly Moloko 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 downtube. Troll is a bike that has one purpose – and that purpose is to carry you as far away from society as possible. Man has known for eons the call of the indifferent forest. The inexorable march of time, and dumb things like cell phones, have dulled our senses and made us afraid. Reclaim your animalistic tendencies atop Man's greatest invention.

The Wednesday is Surly's all-terrain fat bike frame. The frame features trail-ready geometry, 4.6-inches of tire clearance, provides lots of cargo carrying capabilities and is suspension corrected for use with a 100mm suspension fork (sold separately). - 100% Surly 4130 CroMoly steel with 44mm headtube and internal dropper post cable routing - Frame is ED Coated for increased life expectancy - 1-1/8" straight steerer fork, 4130 CroMoly - 100mm threaded bottom bracket shell - Universal cast dropouts accommodate thru-axle or quick-release standards
The Wednesday is the result of over a decade of Omniterra design experience distilled into one steel package. It can easily ride over or through most anything our other Omniterra bikes can and then some. With the Wednesday Frameset, Surly borrowed elements from some of their Trail and Touring models to create an Omniterra whip that can truly handle anything you want to attempt. Want to point it down the side of mountain? Go ahead, roll those dice. And if you make it to the bottom, you’ll be able to ride back to the top for round two. Wednesday’s geometry is spry enough to get you through techy stuff, stable enough for the fast stuff, and doesn’t feel sluggish on terrain-crawling stuff. While Wednesday is plenty confident on terrifying terrain, it also has the chops for any sort of expedition you may want to undertake. Surly gave it all the necessary braze-ons and mounts for whatever accoutrements you feel necessary in your travels. Racks? Front and rear, friend. Fenders? You got it. Bottle mounts? How does triple bottle bosses on both fork legs and the down tube, and two sets of standard mounts on the main triangle grab you? They even gave Wednesday internal routing for a dropper post and Surly Trip Guides to keep everything nice and neat and free of rat’s nests. In the dropout department, Wednesday uses a cast steel, rear-facing, slotted dropout that can exit either rearward or vertically. They’re compatible with either 10mm or 12mm axles and are spaced at 170/177mm.
Carbon isn't the only material that gets to have all the fun—the alloy Chisel frameset is the perfect combination of light overall weight, stiffness, durability, and alloy. Consider it the perfect start to your XC build. Traditional welding methods create frame joints by connecting tubes to cylinders, leaving the performance and security of the connection up to the skill of the welder. D'Aluisio (DSW), however, allows us to move the joint away from the area of the highest stress, making for a lighter frameset that's stiff, compliant, and incredibly strong—the optimal characteristics of a hardtail XC rig. So what does this mean for you? You'll be powering up climbs, shredding singletrack, and everything in between on a bike that has you questioning why alloy's gotten such a bad rap. And to further improve this feel, the Chisel also features our XC geometry, which took our previous XC race geo and added some trail DNA to the mix. This equates to a longer top tube, a shortened head tube, and a slacked out front-end, the result of which is a tremendous increase in downhill stability, plus a wider range of fit. And just as importantly, this doesn't require any sacrifice of climbing proficiency. - Given its lightweight and ultra-stiff characteristics, M5 aluminum was the natural choice for the frame's construction. And when complemented with our speed-focused XC 29 Geometry, D'Aluisio Smartweld technology, and internal cable routing, you get a bike that compromises nothing in delivering explosive speed, confident handling, and hassle-free maintenance.
The perfect start to your dream build, the S-Works Enduro 27.5 frame is ready to be built exactly how you want it. No matter how you build it, though, you're sure to experience a fast, flick'able, and stupid-fun mountain shredder. We gave it a geometry that features a slacker front end, a longer top tube, short chainstays, and a lower bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground, and the platform is more responsive and capable then ever. We even added some bits, like integrated storage with a SWAT Door at the down tube, and made "old" new again by making a triumphant return to a threaded bottom bracket. To keep the weight down, the frame is constructed from our top-tier FACT IS-X 11m carbon fiber. And to ensure top-level performance on the descents, this material choice is greeted by 170mm of plush rear and 170mm front travel, plus a geometry that can be "adjusted" via a shock extension with a "low/high" setting. - The frame's FACT IS-X 11m carbon fiber construction stands as the pinnacle of lightweight, efficient, and tough trail performance. It's been built off our 27.5 Geometry in order to provide an aggressive, well-rounded ride. And with internal Command Post IR routing, a return to a threaded bottom bracket, and an integrated SWAT Door at the down tube, you get a bike that's clean, dependable, and ready for anything that the trail has to offer. - The custom Ohlins STX single tube air shock at the rear features high- and low-speed compression, as well as low-speed rebound. You'll also find an extra-volume reservoir that allows for more oil, which results in more control and an ultra-plush ride quality.
You like gettin’ rowdy, we like gettin’ rowdy, so we figured, “Why not create a bike that lets us do the thing we all love most?” Well, that’s exactly what we did with the Enduro. Its playful and nimble 27.5-inch wheels and modern frame have been purpose-built to make short work of the rockiest, gnarliest, and steepest trails, while still being able to climb well enough to get you there. Witness the sickness. Our quest was to create the perfect long-travel trail bike, and it all began with a close look at the geometry. Basically, we modernized it— slacking out the front end, lengthening the top tube, shortening the chainstays, and lowering the bottom bracket. All of this together makes the bike truly feel glued to the ground, and the platform is more responsive and capable than ever. We then added some crucial bits to make your ride, well, better. We're talking stuff like integrated storage with a SWAT Door at the down tube, a triumphant return to a threaded bottom bracket, and internal cable routing with guides that make cabling super easy. And to keep the weight down, this S-Works frame is constructed from our top-tier FACT IS-X 11m carbon fiber. To guarantee high degrees of "shredability," this material is greeted by 170mm of plush front and rear travel, plus a geometry that can be "adjusted" via a shock extension with a "low/high" setting. To get you started on your way to complete dream build status, this frame includes a FOX Factory X2 Air (216x57mm) rear shock with 170mm of travel. - The frame's FACT IS-X 11m carbon fiber construction stands as the pinnacle of lightweight, efficient, and tough trail performance.

With more World Championship titles, Olympic medals, and Cape Epic wins than you can count, the S-Works Epic frame can truly be built as the fastest XC bike on the planet. Fast and flat, rowdy and technical, punchy and hard—no matter the course, it’s the best tool to get you to the top of the podium. Race courses have evolved over the past few years. They're more technical, steeper, and more challenging to ride. But instead of quivering in our boots, we saw this as an opportunity to make something special—something that both World Cup athletes and XC riders alike can instantly feel the benefit from. We looked at the sum of parts that make a bike handle well, like the head angle, reach, stack, chainstay length, fork offset, etc., and reevaluated all of it. Increasing the reach made a bike that was more stable at speed and generally more comfortable to ride. Dropper posts? Yep, those fit, and not just a short-travel XC option, but full-length droppers that fit in the 30.9mm seat tube. Head angle? We slacked that out, but not without evaluating the overall handling package. It now lands on a custom offset, 42mm fork that works with the slacker head angle in order to behave itself in tight corners and through switchbacks. Next comes Brain 2.0. The original Brain changed the way the bike world looked at suspension, both in its inefficiencies and benefits alike. And oh, was it good. It won races and put a flag in the ground for us as a true leader in innovation and suspension development, but we knew that we could make it better. Simple physics told us that, by moving the Brain closer to the rear axle, it would be in the most sensitive spot. And after countless hours with the RockShox team, the Brain became more than just a slight upgrade. It's totally reborn. Now, it reacts seamlessly to bump forces, it has much more consistent damping performance, and finally, it integrates the hoses into the suspension links. This, in turn, improves oil paths, and it creates an incredibly sleek package that outperforms anything on the market. The Epic also has a rider Rider-First Engineered design that places complex carbon pieces in all the right places, and this greatly increases stiffness in the front-end for a vast improvement in ride quality and control. To go along with this, each frame size has size-specific tubes that result in the stiffest, best riding XC bike we've ever developed—no matter the frame size. And while stiffness, Brain technology, and geometry features are cool and all, we know what you're thinking, 'What about weight?' We're glad you asked. With the goal of the new Epic to be the fastest XC mountain bike we've ever made, weight was at the top of our priorities list. We started with an efficient frame layout and tube shapes that feature clean cable routing, integrated channels through the shock extension, straight tubes with fewer curves, and optimized torsion profiles in every section. And, if you're curious, this weight savings is equivalent to shedding a chainstay and shock extension from the previous Epic—nearly 350 grams. This frame comes equipped with a custom RockShox Micro Brain rear shock w/ a Spike Valve. Building out the rest of that dream build is up to you—we hope to see it out on the course soon. - S-Works FACT 12m carbon fiber frame is the best combination of stiffness, strength, and light overall weight, resulting in the utmost efficiency and speed. Meanwhile, the new geometry, RockShox Brain shock, and 100mm of travel make the Epic the best handling, fastest XC bike you've ever been on.
We’ve heard it all before: “This bike’s for going fast, that one’s for having fun.” “This one pedals well, that one shreds.” Why not make one bike that does everything well? Well, we did, and it's called the S-Works Stumpjumper. Unrivaled handling and stiffness, sublime suspension kinematics, and a complete abandon of proprietary nonsense—it rides like a dream. And with 27.5-inch wheels, this model blends responsiveness with stability to create the pinnacle of trail performance. - The Stumpjumper's asymmetrical, FACT 11m carbon fiber construction is lightweight, stiff, and ready to take on the trail. It's built off our 27.5 Trail Geometry, so it's just the right amount of both capable and comfortable. And with SWAT integration in the downtube, a threaded BB, easy cable routing, and an all-new chain silencer, it's ready for anything the trail, or you, throw at it. - FOX FLOAT DPX2 Factory has three modes—Open, Trail, and Firm—that control large compression adjustments on-the-fly. There’s also a tool adjust compression adjustment that allows for fine-tuning of the compression in Open mode.
