Bikes. Parts. Chaos.
New Surly Stuff: A chance for you to exercise patience Ok, so if you're a true Surly tweaker you've already seen a lot of our new stuff for 2007 on the web. Some choad even got into the Interbike show floor before it opened and took his spy shots then - in the dark with the bikes still chained up. Well, I guess we all have things we jones about, Swervy gets weird about new strains of yeast and hops, Brother D digs the newest in goofball Human Powered Vehicle tech, Snacky gets all funky about newly unearthed Replacements video, and Mr. Bloggins has a funny look on his mug when he surfs for expensive tequilla. Me? I dig high heels. But that's neither here nor there. Here's the straight poop on the new stuff and when it might be in: New colors (they're up on the frame pages now) - available Spring 2007 Crosscheck - green goes, Misty Mountain Grey is new, black remains Karate Monkey - brown goes, Husker Blu is new, black remains Pugsley - purple goes, new color is Metallic Thunderhead Gray Instigator - black goes, new color is red Rocket Steamroller - charcoal goes, new color is Maroon (which really looks like chocolate syrup) Pacer - black goes - new color is Silver Bullet metallic with new graphics - super hot Trucker and 1x1 stay the same colors for 2007 Current colors are still available until Spring. Now's your last opportunity. No, you don't get a discount. Mr Whirly Crankset - available summer 2007 An external bearing crankset with changeable spiders (94mm, 104mm, 110mm) with a spindle for Pugsley too. Will come in black or silver, 170mm, 175mm, 180mm Big Dummy frameset - available summer 2007 A long frame built specifically to work with the accessories from Xtracycle. It's a cargo bike and it's going to be very cool. Lots of testing still needs to be done. Here are a few details: Yes, Xtracycle knows we're doing this... sheesh. It's a partnership. 26" wheels (easy there you 29er zealots, 26" is still a good idea for some stuff) No color decided yet (your unsolicited vote will ensure we don't pick that color) Normal parts (28.6 front der, 27.2 post, 1 1/8" headset, 68mm bb, disc and canti mounts) just needs some long cables and two chains. It will cost about $810 for the frame and fork - Xtracycle bits are not included in that price Complete bikes - available spring 2007 Long Haul Trucker, blue color only under $1000 MSRP Steamroller under $675 MSRP We'll post the spec sometime in the near future. Dingle cogs - available soon - couple of months Single speed spacer kit - available now That's all I got. You want more info? Remember, web forums never lie.
