The Midnight Special is a road plus compatible frame, designed to provide comfort and speed on those all-day rides that extend well beyond fresh pavement. It excels on pot-holed, deteriorating pavement and the occasional long stretch of gravel.

Wrought from a galactic vision of all-road exploration, the Cosmic Stallion is an endurance thoroughbred with a hand-built steel frame. Whether you're galloping over miles of gravel or simply want a bike that gives the go-ahead nod to balling down any road you see, the Cosmic Stallion delivers with speed and tenacity. All-City's own A.C.E. 4130 double-butted chromoly tubeset is seamless and light, creating a lively ride that's responsive yet comfortable across sealed and unsealed roads alike. Meanwhile, the Whisky No. 9 thru axle disc carbon fork guides you with precise steering and confident handling.

All-City's flagship road racer was designed to carry you as quickly and efficiently as possible over any road surface. From pot-hole-filled city streets, to smooth country roads, and gravel centuries, this bike does it all with the style and smoothness that can only come from high-end steel. Geometry-wise, it’s a classic racer, but They’ve made tweaks to the equation that remove the limitations associated with your average road bike. It has clearance for 32c tires (28’s w/fenders) for mixed-terrain riding, hidden fender mounts for foul-weather days and an ED coating for rust prevention and longevity. The perennial favorite Columbus Zona tubeset is lightweight and provides a stiff, yet remarkably comfortable ride. Included with the frame is the excellent Whisky No. 7 Road Plus carbon fork, which is a remarkable 1.45lbs lighter than their previous steel version. The Mr. Pink sports all of All-City's classic steel touches: a custom head badge, All-City signature dropouts, signature brazed-on seat collar, internal top tube cable routing for the rear brake, a pump peg and reinforcement stars on the bottle bosses. These are the signifiers of quality that inform, at a glance, that this is a high-end, hand-crafted machine. This is the frame that won the 2013 Gravel World Championships and has been campaigned in all manner of crits, road races, fondos and gravel events. Standout in a world of alloy and carbon, ride one for yourself and feel just how amazing a steel roadbike can be.
Even if you own a different bike for everything, it's still necessary to have one that can do it all. That bike is the Space Horse. It's become a cult favorite because of its classic styling and ability to handle just about any task or terrain. All-City's Space Horse Disc frameset allows you to build your perfect bike with the addition of all-weather control disc brakes. The geometry is a mix of traditional road and randonneur, with a relatively short rear end and a bottom bracket that’s slightly lower than a standard road bike. This gives it both agile handling for riding unbridled and increased stability when loaded. This blend of geometry and 612 Select tubing create a bike that is capable of quick road centuries, gravel racing, commuting, and of course loaded touring. The frame accommodates front and rear racks, fenders, and tires up to 42c in size for the 700c bikes and 45c for the 650B version. It also utilizes a dropout with a replaceable derailleur hanger. All of the classic All-City touches are present: signature brazed-on seat collar, pantographed bottom bracket shell, pump peg, reinforcements on the bottle bosses, and a beautiful lugged crown fork. The fork sports both a double eyelet on the dropout and mid-blade mounts to allow you to use pretty much whatever front rack you wish.

Surly's Long Haul Trucker enjoys a reputation as one of the best riding and most value-packed touring bikes out there. It's been around long enough to be tested in the real world, in all kinds of places, with all kinds of loads on all kinds of roads. Sometimes, however, a combination of load, climate and terrain demands a bit more braking performance than a standard rim-brake LHT can provide. That's where the Disc Trucker comes in. Disc Trucker is a Long Haul Trucker specifically designed for the unique forces discs impose. Surly made sure it can run discs, racks, and fenders with no jury rigging, a somewhat unique feature they've just now decided to call Simulpatibility. Most of the components on the complete bike are the same as the standard LHT; parts chosen for their balance of technical capability, durability, and value. The drivetrain uses the sort of wide gearing you will need for loaded and unloaded travel, cable operated disc brakes for their proven reliability and ease of service, and hubs that are durable and easy to maintain. You'll need to outfit it with the extras you want, like fenders and racks. Surly doesn't include that stuff because everybody's needs are different. From the casual commuter to the person who rides around the world more than once, the Disc Trucker is more than capable. It's a tool designed from the ground up to take you and a bunch of stuff just about anywhere you'd like to go. It is a tool to help you get lost and find yourself.
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.
Venture away from the crowded bike lanes and jump aboard Surly's Midnight Special for grand adventure on a plethora of forgotten back roads. The Midnight Special smooths chunky tarmac and bumpy dirt with its vibration-damping Chromoly steel frame and plump 650b x 47 WTB Horizon tires, allowing you to chase skyline beyond the city in total comfort. TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes are steadfast no matter the conditions, and SRAM's Rival 22 drivetrain has ample gearing for climbing mountain passes and gliding along expansive landscapes alike. Surly provides a few welcome touches of convenience to complement every ride, including three bottle mounts on the frame, front and rear rack provisions, and full fender mounts to keep you hydrated, well-prepared, and feeling sharp, even in the rain. The Midnight Special's touch points are appointed with Salsa's comfortable Cowbell bar and a WTB Volt Sport saddle, and thanks to modern, evolution-accommodating details like convertible dropouts, a 44mm headtube, and flat-mount brakes, you can count on the Midnight Special to be your partner in exploration through many years of service.
Venture away from the crowded bike lanes and jump aboard Surly's Midnight Special for a grand adventure on an array of forgotten back roads. The Midnight Special smooths chunky tarmac and bumpy dirt with its vibration-damping Chromoly steel frame and clearance for plump tires, allowing you to chase skyline beyond the city in total comfort. It utilizes modern road standards like flat-mount disc brakes, 12mm front and rear thru-axles, and a 44mm head tube. Couple all that with a 650b x 60mm or 700c x 42cm tire clearance and you have a bike that will withstand evolving trends and standards. Surly deliberately kept the Midnight Special a little leaner on the braze-on side of things. Well, lean for a Surly. It has mounts for racks, fenders, and three water bottles so you can bring what you need for a long road ride, keep your keister dry, and still pee a healthy clear at the end of your ride.
The Ogre can get you to your job during the week, then way out of town on the weekend. It’s not sluggish on pavement or gravel and can also hold its own on singletrack. Ogre has many of the same features as Troll — horizontal slotted dropouts with Gnot-Boost spacing, a tweaked non-suspension corrected geometry, and a beefy tire clearance — but in a 29er platform. - Surly 4130 chromoly steel, main triangle double-butted frame - TIG-welded, Horizontal slotted with derailleur hanger, Gnot-Boost spacing allows the use of 135mm QR hub, 142 x 12mm thru-axle or 148 x 12mm Boost hubs. Features Rohloff torque arm slot and threaded eyelets for fenders, racks and Surly trailer mounts - Full-length Surly Trip Guide housing line guides for derailleurs and brakes; two sets of bottle cage mounts; upper seatstay threaded barrels, 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 - Disc brakes only.

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”
See that fire road? How about that gravel grinder you've always thought about doing? Surly's Straggler is just the steed you need to explore all the backroads and sideroads. Manufactured from Surly's favored chromoly tubing, paired with a lugged chromoly fork, the frame is responsive, nimble, and showcases steel's inherent ability to damp road buzz. 650b wheels are a great 'tweener size, with speed, traction, and road smoothing comfort. It also has clearance for 42mm tires, a full set of rack and fender eyelets, and custom rear dropouts that let you ride the bike singlespeed or geared. The wide-range SRAM Apex drivetrain will get you through all the ups and downs of any ride, and snappy SRAM Apex DoubleTap shifters make it easy to get through the gears. And control is easy with Hayes CX-Expert disc brakes providing tons of all-weather, all-terrain stopping power.

Plus, disc brake mounting tabs ensure that you'll have tons of all-weather, all-terrain stopping power.
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. Straggler shares all of the Cross-Check’s braze-ons for fenders, racks and bottle cages. The Straggler’s geometry is slightly different, with angles and tube lengths very close but not identical to the Cross-Check, but like the Cross-Check it’s ready to take you just about anywhere. It’s a day tripper and a weekender. It’s a ‘rough road’ road bike. It’s a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. It’s a utilitarian townie. It’s a light-duty touring bike. It’s an all-weather commuter. And when you get tired of one set up, you can swap parts around and turn it into something else. We think that’s pretty neat.
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.

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.
