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
- green goes, Misty Mountain Grey is new, black remains
- brown goes, Husker Blu is new, black remains
- purple goes, new color is Metallic Thunderhead Gray
- black goes, new color is red Rocket
- charcoal goes, new color is Maroon (which really looks like chocolate syrup)
- 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
- available spring 2007
Long Haul Trucker
, blue color only under $1000 MSRP
under $675 MSRP
We'll post the spec sometime in the near future.
- available soon
- couple of months
Single speed spacer kit
- available now
