Are you taller than 6'5"? Do you have a hard time finding a bike that fits? Guess what? Surly has you covered. Being tall is awesome, but finding a bike that fits among the mainstream bike brands can be frustrating. Mainstream bike brands design bikes for average height. That’s like eating generic bread. I suppose that anyone of any size can ride whatever bike they please just as long as they can turn the pedals. I am 6'8" and can ride a 16" but why should I? Funny thing is that bikes don't know how tall you are. At Surly we recognize that there are all sizes of people that just want to ride a bike that’s well designed, affordable and fun. If you are tall and have gotten away with riding bikes 2 sizes too small then look again. We make bikes that fit – most of you anyway. Little critters of the forest, beware of the bike riding giants. We will crush you.
