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)

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 way they envy your Shagamaw only makes the ride better. Attack favorite trails with 29er hardtail efficiency or conquer new paths with the unbeatable high-speed traction of 27.5+ wheels and tires. Either way, you'll command your chosen terrain. Bring it together with modern, ready-for-anything geometry and you’ve got the DNA for a trail-taming beast! This dialed frame is worthy of your own favorite build and will deliver great off-road rides for years to come.
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.
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.
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. 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.
Carbon isn't the only material that gets to have all the fun—the alloy Specialized Chisel frameset is the perfect combination of light overall weight, stiffness, durability, and alloy. Consider it the perfect start to your XC build. D'Aluisio aluminum allows Specialized to make a lighter frameset that's stiff, compliant, and incredibly strong—the optimal characteristics for a hardtail XC rig. You'll be powering up climbs, shredding singletrack, and everything in between on a bike that has you question why alloy as gotten such a bad rap. To further improve this feel, the Chisel features XC 29 geometry which took their previous XC race geo and added some trail DNA to the mix. This equates to a longer top tube, a shortened the head tube, and a slacked out front end, the result of which is a tremendous increase in downhill stability, plus a wider fit range. 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 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.
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.

Three-Pack mounts grace each fork leg, attachment points can be found for front and rear racks and fenders, and three sets of bottle cage mounts are available on the front triangle. Adventure awaits, and the Fargo is ready to go far.
The Timberjack Ti absolutely owns all paths — wooded, skinny, and flowy, making you the master of every ride thanks to its multi-talented character. 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.
Designed for the tight, twisty, and nasty stuff, the Log Lady Frameset is a technical singletrack rider's dream. Aggressive angles, a gorgeous five-piece segmented fork, and custom A.C.E. steel tubeset make this an absolute trail shredder. The tubing is seamless, heat treated, air-hardened, and custom extruded for a strong yet light build. The frame accommodates 27.5-inch wheels, has a 44mm headtube, short chain stays, and is corrected for a 100mm suspension fork — should you choose to swap out. All of the All-City signature details are there, including signature single-speed disc dropouts, custom seat collar, and custom headtube badge.
Say hello to Surly's rowdy, trail-shredding Instigator 2.0. The no-nonsense chromoly frame is made for charging hard and going big. It's super tough, yet handles nimbly and accelerates like mad. The heart of the bike is Surly's 26+ platform which has clearance for 50mm-wide rims and 2.75-inch tires, so you get endless traction and the rollover-action of a 27.5-inch wheel, coupled with the snappy, go-fast responsiveness of a 26-incher. The geometry is dialed for a 140mm travel suspension fork and features a long top tube and short rear end for more of the same fun. And this thing is versatile, the frame comes with dropouts for rolling singlespeed, or geared with a quick release or a 142x12mm through-axle with a Shimano direct-mount hanger.
The Surly Pugsley may be the original fat bike, but this one is far from the original. Previously a great all-around fat bike, the Pugsley has been redesigned to be an ideal off-road touring and exploration rig. Surly lengthened the chainstays 12mm for stability when loaded and so your heels float effortlessly past panniers. The tweaked rear rack mounts on the dropouts let you center your rack over the wheel, despite the offset rear triangle. Those dropouts will take a 142 x 12mm thru axle if that's your schtick, but can also be used with 135 x 10mmm QR hubs with Surly's Adapter Washers. Pugsley brings back the 135mm-spaced offset fork, so you can run a front wheel with a spare cog or freewheel as a bail-out option to swap with the rear if your internally-geared hub freezes up in neutral or you smash your derailleur having too much fun. A plethora of three-pack mounts give you gear-hauling options aplenty, so go wild with your build. - 100% Surly 4130 chromoly frame, main triangle is double-butted; 1-1/8" threadless brazed chromoly fork - Four sets of Three-Pack Mounts (two on the fork, two on the downtube), a water bottle mount on the seat tube, and front and rear rack mounts - 142 x 12mm rear dropout (or 135 x 10mm QR with Surly 10/12 Adapter Washers) with Rohloff torque arm slot - 135mm-spaced fork with 17.5mm offset for wheel swappability - 26 x 4.8" tire clearance in frame (with drivetrain restrictions), 26 x 4.3" tire clearance in fork

Tom Ritchey applied his 40 plus years of racing, designing and building steel mountain bikes into the P-29er. Like all Ritcheys, this bike is born to go fast without sacrificing comfort or durability. Heat-treated, triple-butted Ritchey Logic II tubing in their own unique butting profiles results in a frame that balances rough trail compliance with sprint-winning stiffness. The 29er-specific geometry was defined by the best way Tom Ritchey knows: countless hours of saddle time under Tom himself, World Cup legend Thomas Frischknect, and other racers. The result is nimble handling that captures the benefits of the big wheels, stable yet responsive, equally at home on all-day epics or tight, technical singletrack. • Ritchey forged-and-machined 1.5" tapered head tube • Fork: designed for use with 100mm travel forks • Weight: 2,150g (Size: L/19") • Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded

What does ECR mean? Anything you want it to. Go camping, ride the Divide Trail, disappear into the woods, and conquer any road. Surly's ECR is a super capable camping machine/trail bike that's outfitted to explore wherever you point the front wheel. Surly's favored chromoly tubing damps road buzz and provides a nimble, responsive ride. The heart of the ECR is the 29+ wheel capability, with clearance for 29 x 3.0-inch tires. Fat tires mean smooth-rolling traction, stability to spare, and a touch of suspension over the roughest terrain. On top of all that, frame eyelets galore are just waiting for racks, fenders, and whatever else to make this your pedal-powered escape pod.
The Surly Pack Rat is designed around porteur-style racks and front-loading optimization, with a front cargo-specific design to eliminate steering issues. The fork features internal routing for generator hubs and rear frame dropouts to accommodate multiple drivetrain configurations. It’s an ideal choice for loaded commutes and bike trips with a lighter load, but also rides great when unloaded. - 100% Surly 4130 Chromoly frame, main triangle is double-butted; 1-1/8" threadless brazed Chromoly fork - Bosses front and rear for cantilever or linear-pull brakes, rack and fender eyelets at the dropouts, eyelets at the crown, and fully threaded through-blade fork eyelets for a front rack - Semi-horizontal dropouts with a derailleur hanger for geared or singlespeed drivetrains and/or wheelbase adjustability
This is the second version of a 650b mountain bike from Ritchey – Tom started to design his first in 1977. Even back then, Tom had a feeling that there was an advantage to the "middle" wheel size, but it took the rest of the cycling world three decades to figure it out: a 650b (or 27.5") wheel provides the bump-eating smoothness of a 29er, with the light, responsive feel of 26" wheels. Finally, the era of the 650b wheel is here. The P-650b is a close relative to the P-29er. Up front there's the proprietary forged-and-machined, gram-shaving integrated head tube featured on all new Ritchey frames. Forged socket dropouts and a new chainstay-mounted rear disc brake mount save a few more grams. And like every frame Ritchey makes, geometry and tubing is carefully fine-tuned by Tom, to bring the legendary balanced, nimble Ritchey feel to 27.5-inch wheels. - Weight: 2,028g for frame (L/17”) - Ritchey forged-and-machined 1.5” tapered head tube - Clearance for up to 2.25-inch tires - Fork: Designed for use with 100mm travel forks - 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.) - Bottom Bracket: 68mm English threaded - Rear spacing: 10x135 - Front derailleur: 28.6 low clamp – top or dual pull - Weight: 2178g / 4.8 lbs (M/17”, frame only)
Rejoice, for Pinarello has entered the world of singletrack. A frame approaching a mere 1,000 grams is almost unheard of in the knobby world. Built from Torayca 60HM1K carbon, the Dogma XC’s asymmetrical geometry creates an incredibly stiff, responsive, nimble ride. The rear triangle on this 29-inch wheeled bike is an exhibit of mind-boggling engineering: the stout, asymmetrical chainstays maximize power transfer while the unique, asymmetrical seat stays meet above the top tube for damping vibration and increasing comfort. Up front, a tapered head tube, 100mm Fox Float 32 fork and a 15mm through axle provide impressive handling to help you hold your line over tricky roots and rock sections.
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.
When actually buttering up forest carnivores ceases to amuse you, may we suggest instead a jaunt on your very own Salsa Beargrease? A wicked fat bike build begins with this stiff aluminum frameset, complete with 170mm spacing in the rear and a 150mm Salsa Bearpaw fork up front. With a steed such as this, you will be completely prepared for the most savage terrain and weather conditions, but can sail blissfully under clear skies, as well.
