Surly Cross Bikes

Lightweight & on-road touring & cyclo-cross

Versatility is the name of the game with Surly, and it’s all down to the well-engineered and designed steel frame that forms the bombproof basis for this range. The Cross-check and Steamroller are perfect bikes for commuting, weekend jaunts, cyclocross and a bit of off-road thrown in for good measure. Go explore!
Cross-check

Cross-check

The Cross-Check is really a cyclocross bike, but it’s really incredibly versatile. Equally at home on tarmac or mud, the Cross-Check can take a chunky tyre and a mudguard and you can run it with gears, singlespeed or fixed gear. Ten bikes in one – no wonder the basic design has changed little in over a decade.

  • Surly 4130 CroMoly steel frame, double-butted and TIG-welded. Rear rack bosses
  • Surly Cross-Check fork, 100% CroMoly, lugged + brazed crown. 1-1/8 threadless steerer
  • Tektro cantilever brakes
  • Shimano derailleurs and BB

£1049.99

Cross-check

Cross-check SS

The Cross Check SS is the singlespeed sister to the Cross Check. Surly say “boy howdy it’s rootin’ tootin’, suitable for a broad spectrum of adventurneering, from neighborhooding to farthest reaches of darkest suburbia and beyond” and who are we to disagree?

  • Surly 4130 CroMoly steel frame, double-butted and TIG-welded
  • Avid Single Digit 5 v-brakes
  • Surly Ultra New model hubs
  • Salsa MotoAce riser bar
  • Surly proprietary Getaroundit 42 x 17 gearing

£799.99

Steamroller

Steamroller

The Steamroller does what it says on the tin. It’s an all-terrain machine that is at home in any situation, be it on or off-road though with a frame geometry which is more road oriented. Frame clearance is sufficient for tyres up to 38mm and the frame is stripped dwon and simple – no braze-ons, no rear brake, no fuss.

  • Surly 4130 CroMoly steel frame, double-butted and TIG-welded
  • Surly hubs (flip flop rear with a fixed cog and lockring, threaded on the other side for a singlespeed freewheel)
  • Open Bar handlebar
  • Tektro R538 front brake

Straggler

Straggler

So what is this Straggler anyway? The easy answer is to say that Surly added disc brakes to a Cross-Check and this is close to accurate. People have asked for a disc version of the 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.

Pacer

Pacer

Behold the Pacer. For years Surly sold it only as a frameset. It was understated, didn’t draw a lot of attention to itself, but it rode great and people who rode one loved it.

Pacer’s geometry and Surly-designed CroMoly steel tubing make it fast and efficient like a road bike should be. Its lively, climbing and descending with equal agility, but it’s comfy too. It doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles, but then it doesn’t need them. Add water bottle cages and fenders if you like, then get out and ride. The clearance for tires up to about 32mm is a nice feature for an all-day bike. Higher volume tires take the edge off the bumps and jangles which otherwise can harsh your ride since tire casings flex before the frame. The frame is designed around common component standards, so there aren’t many restrictions about how you can build it. If you choose the Pacer complete bike you’ll find it has a nice mix of parts that work well and are durable. This year Surly changed up the componentry to a Shimano 105 Drivetrain and its got a shiny new paint job too. Prit-ty fancy.
