Waste of perfectly fine money.

Everyone that knows anything about bikes will think you are eccentric.

Normal people like them

4chan autists get angry at them because of some out of context email copy/paste from a bike forum that expressed a wrong opinion once

Most surly owners are cute girls who are kind of granola/hippyish, so if you hate surly that means you hate cute girls

Although if you are a guy and you bought a surly you should hang your head in shame

"jack of all trades, master of none" company
some of their geometries are weird, like the super long top tubes
overzealous with braze ons
horizontal dropouts with disc brakes and quick release is a fucking disaster
obsession with 4130
"fuck the bike industry, we're quirky and weird" while being owned by one of the biggest bicycle corps out there


that said, they make some solid frames for particular uses/price points (trucker, troll, 1x1), but there are usually better options available.

I'd rather just get a bikes direct online bike than a surly. Steel is cheap and no logo is going to make me want to spend extra £££

Horizontal dropouts are stupid

Valid point

29+ is the best.

Surly helped make 29er happen with the Karate Monkey.

Surly helped make fatbike happen with the Pugsley.

Both were the first mass-production models in their categories

Surly needs credit for that.

The success of the LHT is part of the reason why touring bikes came back in fashion, which is awesome.

Credit for the bottle cage bosses and eyelets covering frames today too.

All of that, and yet, I don't want to pay the extra $500 for the bikes. But respect for their innovations.

I hope they keep pulling it off, but I don't see where else there is to go

Where do you draw the line in the sand for "worth it" re: mountain bikes. Rigid canti 26er? Because if you do, everyone involved in mtb - even the veterans from the 90s - disagrees with you.

>Aren't fat bikes just a meme though?

They're a fun meme and led to the fat-tire trickle down hype that affected every single bike category outside of track. Imho it's a great thing. All-road, 29+, 26+, 25c pro cycling

Every hobby has it's Apple equivalent, which is what Surly is. However, their LHT, Crosscheck, and fat bikes are pretty good.

Cycling's Apple equivalent is SpecEd or Terk. Surly is like Asus or some chink shit.

I think they fill the niche they do pretty well.
The LHT is the best touring bike on the market imo and they make plenty of good cool stuff. I like mostly how hardy and versatile their stuff is.

on the slightly higher end, All-City does better stuff with their steel. The way they treat it with electricity and coat it really well makes the lifetime of it fantastic.

Just looking at it now the geometry is different and quite frankly, I see 1 less bottle mount (also holds things like folding lock). I have multiple ways to mount racks on the rear, and I have cantis rear (all you really need).

Now, I got my frame used. I got a over built steel disk fork. I have Aero clip on some and brifters. Replicating this bike new would be close to 2 3k. Esp with dura ace derail

Btwn 1x setup to make gearing easier matinence. Hyrd front. Bottle cage carries a vacuumed sealed 1 hand mug and 2 tire levers. I think a tube maybe too. With all the ways to attach things to this bike, it's easy to get down to riding almost naked while entirely stocked like a bike store.

I think surly is something like a think tank or innovation side of bike corps. I got the frame used for 100, but this is easily the nicest bike I've ever had. Makes 23c tires on cobblestones more comfortable then a 80lb ebike with 10inch marathons. Running 25 Mara plus

Also, the bike handles like a dead cat without a load. When it's loaded down it feels like a boat made by Lincoln. A Town car boat that honestly makes me think of magic carpet.

Now that's not a muscle car, and it's not a stunt car. It's a El Camino with a ridiculous nice cabin.

I do deliveries all day. Load up like 30lb of pizza on a rear rack, blast a few miles. I ride 50 a week. More.

I will say. It's nice to be able to fit fenders like some kind of weak sissy who doesn't just put a tarp on the bottom of their rack.

But why the fuck can't this fit anything bike fit rim breaks? Like maybe with some brazes and a adaptor link up? Cm on surly step it up

And spoke holders. I dont even build wheels but I love them
