Cannondale Trail 7
$720.00
With its progressive geometry, impressive construction and high-end features, the Trail offers unreal performance and a killer value. It's designed for short stems and wide handlebars to maximize control in rough terrain, while the slack 68° head angle creates the stable, confident handling you need to rule the descents. Short chainstays give the Trail an agile, nimble feel and provide great traction on steep climbs. With Shimano hydraulic brakes, a reliable 2x drivetrain, and great tires, the Trail 7 is ready to rock.
Cannondale Fat CAAD 1
$3,360.00
Looking for a fat bike without all the fat? Lightweight construction and nimble OutFront geometry make the Fat CAAD so agile and quick, you'll want to ride it all year long. The 100mm-travel Lefty Olaf fork is more than stiff enough to tell that big tire what to do, while the slack head angle and long front center lets you get rowdy on the steeps. The tight trail measurement keeps things crazy-nimble at slow speeds so you get the most out of that big, fat contact patch. Thanks to Cannondale's System Integrated cranks and offset chainrings, the FAT CAAD's Q-factor is up to 2.5cm narrower than the competition, so it feels like riding a bike, not a horse. The System Integrated crankset and offset Ai offset chainring also balance the short stays and allow for 2x compatibility with up to 4.8" tires!
Cannondale Catalyst 2
$525.00
Satisfy your thirst for adventure. With its lightweight alloy frame, sporty riding position and wide-range gearing, Catalyst lets you confidently ride any trail. A 100mm-travel SR Suntour fork lets you roll over rocks and roots while the nimble 27.5-inch wheels offer quick maneuvering through tight spots. Trusty Shimano shifting and Tektro hydraulic disc brakes give you the tools you need to attack the climbs and confidently navigate the descents on all your favorite trails.
Surly Krampus
$1,550.00
Surly's Krampus rolls fast, holds speed, and devours corners. Surly built its Boosted frame and fork out of tapered and butted chromoly and gave the frame a long top tube and short chainstays, so it's playful, smooth, versatile, and durable. The 29 x 3-inch Dirt Wizard tires on 40mm Alex rims take your trail ride to new heights of fun. These big tires offer increased traction, incredible float, and reduce the need for suspension because the large volume is plenty to smooth the trail. You'll also get a SRAM NX 1x drivetrain, Answer Pro Taper bars, and SRAM Level hydraulic brakes to make you the new master of terrain that used to be out of bounds.
Cannondale F-Si Carbon 2
$5,250.00
Cannondale's best XC hardtail just got better. If going really, really fast on dirt in lycra is your cup o' tea, nothing lets you top 'em on the climbs and drop 'em on the descents like the F-Si. The F-Si Carbon 2 features Cannondale's BallisTec Carbon frame with stiffness-enhancing Si offset. The Lefty Ocho fork features no-bind needle bearings and extreme stiffness for pinpoint steering, now with a single crown design. Hollowgram 23 superlight high-impact carbon rims keep this rig at fighting weight, while the Schwalbe Racing Ray tires fly over hardpack and dig into sketchy corners. SRAM's X01 drivetrain serves up 12 wide-ranging speeds, and gets it power through a carbon TruVativ crankset, resulting in efficient power transfer and crisp, precise shifting to give you the advantage on every part of the course. Shimano XT brakes provide ruthless and reliable braking power when you need it, so you can carry more speed and brake at the last possible second. Cannondale's carbon seatpost and handlebar, paired with a titanium-railed Fabric Scoop saddle, keep you in control while adding almost no weight, ensuring that your race rig is sleek, lean, and ready to win.
Cannondale Fat CAAD 2
$2,100.00
Looking for a fat bike without all the fat? Lightweight construction and nimble OutFront geometry make the Fat CAAD so agile and quick, you'll want to ride it all year long. The slack head angle and long front center lets you get rowdy on the steeps, while the tight trail measurement keeps things crazy-nimble at slow speeds so you get the most out of that big, fat contact patch. Thanks to Cannondale's System Integrated cranks and offset chainrings, the FAT CAAD's Q-factor is up to 2.5cm narrower than the competition, so it feels like riding a bike, not a horse. The System Integrated crankset and offset Ai offset chainring also balance the short stays and allow for 2x compatibility with up to 4.8" tires!
Surly Pugsley
$1,900.00
The Surly Pugsley may be the original fat bike, but this one is far from the original. Previously a great all-around fat bike, the Pugsley has been redesigned to be an ideal off-road touring and exploration rig. Surly lengthened the chainstays 12mm for stability when loaded and so your heels float effortlessly past panniers. The tweaked rear rack mounts on the dropouts let you center your rack over the wheel, despite the offset rear triangle. Those dropouts will take a 142x12mm thru axle if that's your schtick, but this rig comes with a 135mm QR hub, snug as a bug with a pair of adapter washers. Pugsley brings back the 135mm-spaced offset fork, so you can run a front wheel with a spare cog or freewheel as a bail-out option to swap with the rear if your internally-geared hub freezes up in neutral or you smash your derailleur having too much fun. A plethora of three-pack mounts give you gear-hauling options aplenty, and a Surly Moloko Bar gives your hands damn near as many options as well, so they stay clappably happy even on your longest, story-generating adventures.
Cannondale Jekyll 4
$2,230.77 $3,199.99 30% Savings
When you’re on the Jekyll 4 from Cannondale, nothing dares get in your way. That’s because Jekyll’s tough aluminum frame shrugs off enduro brutality and arrives at the bottom begging to do it again and again. And you will, too, with 165mm of Fox DPS EVOL-guided travel in back and 170mm more up front, courtesy of Fox’s stiff, enduro-loving Float 36 fork. Together, they make easy work of gnarly descents where the only break you get is the climb back up. Since we’re talking about climbing, the Jekyll is no slouch in the uphill department, either, with a switch-on-the-fly rear suspension that offers Hustle Mode for tenacious efficiency. Put the power to the Shimano SLX drivetrain via Cannondale’s Si crankset, and you’ll gain elevation as fast as you drop the competition. And, for all-mountain dominance, you won’t find better rubber than the Jekyll’s Maxxis Minions, wrapped around 29mm WTB STP rims, well-known as workhorse hoops that’ll bail you out of your risky moves straight as an arrow. Shimano also provides powerful hydraulic brakes that keep you on course, even when that course can only be described as “sketchy.” So, jump on, slam the TransX dropper post, and flow this trail beast straight to victory.
Cannondale Cujo 2
$1,300.00
More fun. Less Stress. With big grippy tires, stable geometry and a lightweight frame, Cujo just makes mountain biking easier. 27+ wheels combine wide rims with big 2.8" tires for unreal traction and cushiony float on just about any surface the trail can throw your way. Trail-focused geometry delivers a stable, confident feel that encourages you to let 'er rip. A tapered head tube, 110x15mm thru-axle front hub and Boost QR rear hub all contribute to Cujo's solid feel and precise handling. A light, simple 1x drivetrain and hydro discs ensures easy, reliable control and a clean, uncluttered handlebar. Wide range 11-42 cassettes and 30t rings give you a rock-crawling low gear. Wide bars and grippy WTB Ranger tires for control.
Cannondale Trail 3
$1,365.00
With its progressive geometry, impressive construction and high-end features, the Trail offers unreal performance and a killer value. It's designed for short stems and wide handlebars to maximize control in rough terrain, while the slack 68° head angle creates the stable, confident handling you need to rule the descents.

With Shimano hydraulic brakes, a reliable 1x drivetrain, and tubeless-ready wheels, the Trail 3 is ready to rock.
Surly Karate Monkey
$1,550.00
Years ago the Karate Monkey helped start the 29-inch wheel movement and, as time's gone by, many companies ­– Surly included – have experimented with even more wheel sizes. With so many different types and sizes of tires now on the market, riders have begun to understand the effect that tire width has on overall wheel diameter, and with ample tire clearance, you can see the benefits of multiple wheel sizes all on one bike. 27+ tires have the same rolling diameter as a 29-inch wheel, yet you get all the traction and floatation benefits of extra-wide knobbies. And that's just the tires. The Karate Monkey frame has recently gotten a makeover that includes the addition of features like internal dropper post routing, a new tubeset that uses the same trumpet tubes found on Surly's Instigator 2.0, and a slight tweak in geometry that is more progressive and trail-oriented. The Karate Monkey uses a horizontal dropout with a derailleur hanger that features Gnot-Boost spacing, which gives the rider the ability to run any kind of mountain bike hub they choose. 10 x 135mm QR, 12 x 142, or 12 x 148 Boost will all work in the Karate Monkey frame. The frame uses a 44mm headtube for broad fork compatibility and is ED coated for an added layer of internal protection. If, at any point, you decide you want to throw on some skinny meats, standard 29-inch wheels and tires can be swapped in with no issue. If you want to round-house kick some trail right in the face, the Karate Monkey is your sled. - 100% Surly 4130 chromoly steel frame and fork; double-butted main triangle and 44mm headtube - Adjustable rear dropouts with 145mm Gnot-Boost spacing. Works with 142, 148 12mm thru, as well as 135mm w/ 10/12 washer - Internal dropper seatpost routing with 30.9mm seat tube ID - Clearance for 29 x 2.55 or 27.5 x 3 tires
Trek Marlin 6
$629.99

Surly ECR 29+
$1,900.00
The ECR is Surly's answer to those times when you just need to escape to the woods for a while to get away from the humdrum of life. Those familiar with this steel mule know it’s designed around plus tires, previously of the 29” variety. A fully loaded 29+ bike is an excellent way to explore and get away for a while… if you’re of a certain stature that is. For smaller riders, it poses several challenges though. And no one wants new problems when they’re in the woods trying to escape old ones. To solve this, Surly redesigned the smaller sizes of the ECR to work with 27.5+ while the larger sizes are still equipped with 29+. All you medium specimens out there get your pick of the litter as Surly is offering that size in both options. Other updates to the ECR include and are limited to: Gnot-Boost rear spacing and a killer new beige paint job. It retains the abundant accessory mounts that we all know and love like Surly Trip Guide for brakes and derailleurs, fender, rack, and Bill/Ted eyelets, and a Rohloff torque arm slot. The 29+ sizes have two water bottle mounts and one set of Three-Pack bosses. You’ve got lots of options to bring all your “necessities” with you and still have room for excess baggage if you’ve got it.

Cannondale Jekyll 29 2
$5,550.00
Point and go. If your style is more "over" than "around", then this is your rig. With crusher 29" wheels mated to Gemini dual travel and Ai agility, Jekyll 29 is ready to rage. The monster stability you expect from a big 29er, but with uncanny agility and snap, thanks to the ultra-short chainstays of our Ai rear end. Placing a link between the swingarm and the shock allows Cannondale's engineers to customize the system's leverage ratios for optimal suspension response throughout the stroke and keep the suspension active under braking while retaining the stiffness, durability, and reliability of a single pivot design.
Surly Ice Cream Truck Frameset
$825.00
Surly's Ice Cream Truck turns up the volume on fat. With unmatched traction and float courtesy of super wide tires (up to 4.8-inches wide!), and the flickable geometry of your favorite trail bike, this fatty feels frisky, limber, and ready for action. The symmetrically spaced 190mm rear end uses Surly's Modular Dropout system for an array of rear axles choices. 197mm thru-axle? 190mm geared? Singlespeed? All equally plausible possibilities with the Ice Cream Truck. A 44mm headtube provides fork options, and the frameset ships with a suspension-corrected, 150mm fork with a 15mm thru-axle. Surly's proprietary 4130 chromoly steel and corrosion-fighting ED coating add a hefty dose of tough to this bike. Now, where do you want to ride your Ice Cream Truck?
Surly Wednesday Frameset
$650.00
Wednesday is a frame with a decade of Surly's Omniterra design experience distilled into one steel package. Wednesday can ride over the same type of pretty much anything all of their other Omniterra bikes can, but they borrowed elements from both their Trail and Touring categories to create an Omniterra ride that can truly handle anything you want to attempt. Want to point the thing down a mountain and roll those dice? Wednesday has geometry spry enough to get you through the techy stuff, stable enough for the fast stuff, and doesn’t feel sluggish when you have to ride back to the top. It also has the chops for any sort of expedition you may want to undertake. It has plenty of bottle mounts; triple bottle bosses on both fork legs and the down tube; standard bottle mounts on the seat tube and underside of the down tube; plus rack mounts on the frame and fork and fender eyelets on the dropouts, along with barrel bosses on the crown, fork legs and mid-blade, thru-blade eyelets on the fork as well. It also has internal dropper post routing and Surly Trip Guides to manage all the housing and cables on your frame with style. Wednesday also has its very own dropout design as well – a rear-facing, slotted dropout that can use either 10mm or 12mm axles and exit rearward or vertically. They’re cast steel and spaced at 170/177mm. Wednesday gives you a lot of options in the tire clearance category. In the full-forward, short chainstay position you can run 26 x 3.8? tires on 80mm rims and in the full-rearward, longer chainstay position you get the option of 26 x 4.6? tires on an 80mm rim. Wednesday is made out of Surly's own proprietary 4130 CroMoly steel and is ED coated for extra protection from the elements.

$1,900.00
The ECR is Surly's answer to those times when you just need to escape to the woods for a while to get away from the humdrum of life.

It’s an ideal choice for loaded commutes and bike trips with a lighter load, but also rides great when unloaded. - 100% Surly 4130 Chromoly frame, main triangle is double-butted; 1-1/8" threadless brazed Chromoly fork - Bosses front and rear for cantilever or linear-pull brakes, rack and fender eyelets at the dropouts, eyelets at the crown, and fully threaded through-blade fork eyelets for a front rack - Semi-horizontal dropouts with a derailleur hanger for geared or singlespeed drivetrains and/or wheelbase adjustability
Surly Karate Monkey 27.5+
$1,550.00
The venerable Karate Monkey. When it comes to mountain riding, this bike brings everything you need to the experience and more. It's shod with 27.5 x 3.00 terrain-clawing Dirt Wizards for max traction on singletrack thanks to an aggressive tread pattern and cushy, wide footprint. But there's more to this agile trail runner's set of shoes — thanks to generous frame clearance, you can drop a set of 29-inch wheels in with up to a 2.50-inch tire if you desire something with less bite and similar roll-over capabilities. And, with Surly's Gnot Boost rear dropout spacing, you can comfortably run any kind of mountain bike hub: 10 x 135mm QR, 12 x 142mm, or 12 x 148mm Boost will all work in the Karate Monkey frame. Wheel choices aside, Surly built the updated Karate Monkey with a nod toward modern trail-bike geometry and includes internal dropper post routing, two or three bottle mounts (depending on size), threaded fender eyelets, and all the braze-ons you've come to expect from Surly for attaching racks, cages, and bags galore. Running gear consists of SRAMS's rock-solid NX 1x11 drivetrain with full-length external housing and Level hydraulic disc brakes for reliability when you need it most. Throw on a 140mm suspension fork and this all-rounder turns into a serious trail slayer. For what seems like a simple bike at first glance, the Karate Monkey offers much, much more. Listen to the Monkey and lose yourself in its ways.
Surly Big Fat Dummy
$3,025.00
The Big Fat Dummy is a long tail cargo bike that took a few too many doses of growth hormones. At first glance, you might say that Surly just put bigger tires on a Big Dummy. But if you said that, you'd actually be very wrong so just… don't. Think of Big Fat Dummy as more of a second or third cousin to Big Dummy rather than a brother. They share some of the same DNA and look sort of similar, but they're two very different bikes and really only interact when they both reach for the potato salad spoon at that family reunion that no one really wants to be at anyway. Now that that's out of the way, let's get down to the nitty gritty of what makes this hulking beast of a bike tick. Surly's goal with designing a cargo bike around fat tires was to create the most stable, stiff, and traction-laden ride possible while hauling a ton of stuff. Big Fat Dummy has a longer toptube and slacker headtube than its more svelt cousin giving it a nice, predictable, and stable ride. They also used thinner, lighter tubing to construct its cargo area so while it's an overall burlier bike, there's not much difference in weight. Big Fat Dummy accepts either 10mm or 12mm axles in the rear with a spacing of 190/197mm. That big ol' spacing equates to one thing: tire clearance for days. Big Fat Dummy maxes out at a massive 26 x 5.25" tire.* While that large of a tire provides the most traction and stability a bike can possibly offer, it's also a lot of rubber to push and might not be for everybody. Luckily, Big Fat Dummy is also a blast to ride with 3" tires too. It uses the same 100mm suspension-corrected fork as the Wednesday, meaning if you want to add a little squishy squishy to your ride, you can throw a Bluto on and let ‘er rip. If you intend to carry a passenger on your Big Fat Dummy, Surly requires use of their Dummy Rail Collars. These provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system. In addition, a stoker handlebar set up, found on tandem bicycles, is recommended as well. Make sure to check with seat post manufacturer for stoker handlebar compatibility. All Big Fat Dummy framesets and bikes ship with a Dummy deck, rails, bags, and the aforementioned Dummy Rail Collars so you can immediately start hauling cargo — human or otherwise. Big Fat Dummy is ready and willing to carry all sorts of crap — literally. It's already in use on an organic farm in Ecuador so it's likely that it's hauled some form of manure by now. *Using a 26 x 5.25" tire will cause some drivetrain limitations.
Surly Bridge Club
$1,200.00
When your bike touring route takes you over the river and through the woods with a quick jaunt through town for supplies, you can't beat the versatility and smooth riding characteristics of Surly's new Bridge Club. First off, it's a Surly so you know the 'Natch chromoly steel frame and fork are built to handle your entire kit and caboodle, and thanks to the typical overabundance of rack and cage provisions you can mount your gear via traditional racks and panniers, go full bikepacking-style, or mix-up your favorite combo of the two. The Bridge Club rolls on plump 27.5 x 2.4-inch WTB Riddler tires for a blend of low rolling resistance on smooth pavement and confident handling on forest trails. You can also run up to a 2.8-inch wide tire for more flotation, or swap-in a 700c wheel and tire combo if your route includes a lot of on-road riding. A dependable 2x10 drivetrain ensures you'll never run out of gears as you make the push up long climbs, and mechanical disc brakes offer worry-free performance to keep you safe no matter what the weather brings. And, thanks to fully housed cabling and front and rear fender mounts, you can splash through soggy days with a smile. A comfortable Salsa Bend flat bar and WTB Volt saddle complete this relaxed all-terrain tourer.
