Surly Big Dummy
$2,150.00
Big Dummy is a long-tail cargo bike, which means that not only can you haul a serious amount of cargo, different accessories can be added to your Big Dummy frame and deck depending on what you want to carry. Being a dedicated single-piece frame, instead of an add-on to an existing bike, it's stiffer and resistant to torsional flex, which provides a better ride and longer lasting frame than long-tail add-ons. Like all Surly's frames, it's made of their size specific, 4130 CroMoly steel – a tube set engineered for cargo that sports lots of little touches that you've come to love in a Surly, like clearance for big tires and the use of common component sizes. Figure on being able to carry about 200 pounds (90kg) of cargo. The load weight, and how it's loaded, will affect the handling somewhat. Also, plan on using gears, especially as cargo weight increases. This may seem obvious, but as you get comfy with it, you will use your full range of gears as never before. The parts kit is good quality, and suitable to loaded as well as unloaded riding. It's got a 3x10 drivetrain, Avid BB7 disc brakes, quality Shimano Deore hubs, and 26x2.3" Kenda Kiniption tires. They've outfitted it with Surly-designed bags, deck, rails and Dummy Rail Collars; everything you need for the majority of stuff you might carry, like groceries, shovels, bags of charcoal or mulch, guitars, lamps, mannequins, whatever. Bags, deck, rails, and rail collars are all designed to improve on previous offerings and work together to make sure your stuff is transported with safety and stability. It's an unbending interface, which when you're carrying lots of cargo, is a good thing to have. Get creative, and get hauling. If you intend to carry a passenger on your Big 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. These are included with current Big Dummy bikes and frames, as well as available for older Big Dummy bikes and frames (compatible with all generations of Big Dummy bikes/frames). 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. If you are planning to carry a child on your Big Dummy, Surly recommends the use of a child seat. They've tested the Maxxi Yepp seat. Yepp makes an adaptor that allows their seat to mount onto Surly's deck. It works well with the Big Dummy. At this time other child seats are not recommended and will void your warranty. Surly is testing other options. For the most up to date compatibility/options, check http://www.surlybikes.com/safety Note: keep in mind Big Dummy weight limits when carrying a passenger.
Cannondale Quick CX 2
$1,150.00
Dirt one day, pavement the next. From confident commuting to fire road exploring, the Quick CX2 is built to thrive wherever your adventure leads. A SmartForm alloy frame sets the stage with responsiveness and low weight, while a Suntour suspension fork takes the edge off rough paths and chunky roads. The CX 2's streamlined SRAM 1x11 drivetrain takes you anywhere you want to go, powering Panaracer Comet Hardpack tires that grip a variety of surfaces so you can explore that social trail with confidence. Shimano provides supreme, all-weather braking power with hydraulic disc brakes, and Cannondale's own cockpit components make for a comfortable ride with tight control that dials up the fun.
Surly Cross Check Flat Bar Bike
$925.00
The bicycle is a great way to get around. It’s a lot less expensive than a car and a lot less crowded than public transportation. These days, many bicycle companies forsake practicality in the name of speed, weight, or some other frivolity. Well, not us. Behold the Flat Bar Cross-Check: a different take on an old favorite, and a go-to for those seeking solid two-wheel, non-motorized transport. It’s still the same Surly Cross-Check frame that has reliably carried people from here to there for decades, only with a spec that moves it deeper into the category of practical transportation. The Cross-Check frame is constructed of our size-specific 4130 CroMoly ‘Natch tubing and adorned with a simple and straight forward build kit comprised of SRAM X5 components, tough Alex rims, and our do-it-all Knard 41 tire. Instead of the standard drop bar, there’s a comfy flat bar with a 27-degree sweep to keep you sitting pretty, and an MSW Pork Chop rear rack to carry you and all of your stuff with the greatest of ease. One of our goals with this bike was to keep the price tag low and the usefulness high. That way, you’ll have some cash leftover just in case you want to stop for a happy hour on the way home from work.

All-City Nature Boy 853
$2,150.00
If single speeding is your thing, this is the one. This is the race version of the Nature Boy disc platform and features a single speed disc dropout, Reynolds 853 tubing, a Whisky No. 9 Thru-Axle cross fork, and hydraulic disc brakes. Reynolds 853 tubing is undisputedly among the worlds best, and nothing holds its value like high-end steel. It's lightweight, will last forever if treated properly, and produces the finest ride quality of any material used in the bike world. Twenty years from now this frameset will still be fawned over by bike geeks due to that little Reynolds sticker. The NB853 has of the All-City custom touches you've come to expect: signature dropouts, signature seat collar, custom English threaded bottom bracket shell, reinforcements on the bottle bosses and fender mounts. It has clearance for 38's, plus room for tons of mud. It's MXP tires from Clement hook up in the loose stuff, and the intermediate tread won't hold you back if your path leads onto pavement. They roll on a pair of lightweight, tubeless ready, WTB wheels. Contact points are covered by a Salsa Cowbell 3 handlebar, Salsa cockpit components, and an All-City saddle, a winning combo whether you're on your way to work or the podium.
All-City Nature Boy 853 Frameset
$1,150.00
All-City's Nature Boy Disc is your one-stop ride for weekend racing and weekday riding. Race-proven geometry in a classic and durable Renyolds 853 steel frame with a Whisky No.9 thru-axle fork with carbon blades make for a memorable ride both on and off road. Disc brake tabs and a custom All-City sliding rear dropout make disc brake installation and setup a breeze. And all the usual All-City details are present, including rust-fighting ED coating, signature All-City stainless steel dropouts, and a stylish integrated seatpost clamp.
All-City Nature Boy Disc
$1,150.00
Disc brakes, one gear, and tons of fun: the Nature Boy Disc is All-City's singlespeed cross machine. The 612 chromoly steel frame and tapered chromoly fork soak up less-than-perfect tarmac and rough-and-tumble dirt and grass with equal ease. Race-inspired geometry keeps things feeling fast and makes negotiating technical turns or gridlocked traffic a breeze. With the Nature Boy, one speed is all you need, and an FSA crank turns over a pair of sturdy WTB/Joytech wheels wrapped in Clement MXP tires (Surly Knards on 650B versions). When the going gets gnarly, Promax mechanical disc brakes are there to maintain control on nasty courses and during inclement weather. And all your favorite All-City details are present including a beautiful lugged fork crown, Hennepin Bridge dropouts, signature brazed-on seat collar, custom BB shell, and signature head badge. Everything is E.D. coated for longevity and rust prevention and since cross bikes are perfect for everyday living, you’ll find hidden fender mounts and two sets of bottle bosses (reinforced of course). Race the heck out of it, ride singletrack, crush gravel, or commute to your heart’s content.
All-City Macho Man Disc
$1,599.00
If your cross bike functions as an everyday mount that you use for ripping trails, bombing alleys, commuting, riding in the wet and generally getting rad, the Macho Man Disc is your new best friend. It adds the all-weather stopping power and mud clearance of disc brakes to an incredibly durable 612 Select chromoly cyclocross frame and fork, as well as the ability to fit smaller riders with 650B wheel options on select frame sizes. The result is a favorite with the cross crowd, trail riders, gravel racers, and commuters. All-City spec'd the Macho Man Disc with proven components that don't shy away from a little mud. The streamlined SRAM Apex 1 drivetrain gets you through the mud, over the barriers, and down the road on your daily commute. Sturdy WTB/Joytech wheels wrapped in 700 x 33mm Clement MXP tires (650b x 41mm Surly Knard for the smaller folks) make short work of on and off-road rides and Promax mechanical disc brakes provide reliable speed control in all types of weather. Finishing touches include rust-fighting ED coating and hidden fender mounts for those less than perfect training rides and trips downtown.
All-City Space Horse Disc
$1,499.00
Combine two parts versatility, one part bike-fueled thirst for the open road, and a dash of Minnesota-bred style, and you've got yourself All-City's Space Horse Disc. The 612 Select chromoly frame and fork blend traditional touring and randonneuring geometry for a bike that's at home on a fully-loaded trek across the state or commuting to and from work. The smaller sizes are designed around 650B wheels to offer a better fit to smaller riders. A relatively short rear end and a bottom bracket that’s slightly lower than a standard road bike give it both agile handling for riding unbridled and increased stability when loaded. With the addition of the all-weather control of Promax disc brakes, this Space Horse is without a doubt the best version yet.  A complete set of rack and fender braze-ons let you dress up the Space Horse in whatever livery you need for your particular adventure. The long and winding road calls for equipment you can count on, and the SRAM Apex 20-speed drivetrain promises smooth shifts and hill-topping gearing for miles to come. The whole package rolls on a pair of quality WTB rims and VEE Speedster tires that offer unbelievable traction in wet or dry conditions. And all the usual All-City details are present, including a rust-fighting ED coating, a stylish integrated seatpost clamp, and signature All-City dropouts with a removable derailleur hanger.
All-City Macho Man
$1,499.00
All-City's Macho Man has been many things to many people — back alley bandit, CX shredder, all-round road runner — and now it's back for more fun, more comfort, more style, and in more sizes than ever. You get all the features that made Macho Man great in the first place, like a 612 Select chromoly frame and fork, disc brakes, double bottle cage mounts, plus hidden fender and rear rack mounts, but with size-specific wheels to accommodate smaller frame geo's and flat-bar, laid-back comfort for cruising all day. Take it across town for happy hour, make it your full-time commuter, or prove your mettle in the next Bandit Cross event. This Macho Man's built for you.

All-City Big Block
$999.00
The Big Block represents our vision of the ideal track frame for the modern fixed-gear rider. This is the track bike that All-City has always dreamed of owning and they are proud to make that dream available to you. It was designed first and foremost as a true competition-ready track frame but was destined to see usage beyond the velodrome, so they made some tweaks to the equation. Instead of the track bike norm 25c max tire clearance, it fits a 32c cross tire and has a single set of water bottle mounts for all day in the saddle. The front and rear of the bike are drilled out for a brake, so single speeding (or double brake fixed) is no problem. The proprietary 612 Select double-butted cro-moly steel soaks up bumps and sprints like a champ. Each piece of tubing on every frame size has been carefully scrutinized and specifically chosen to create the best ride possible. This includes butting placement, tubing diameter and wall thickness. The package is finished off with a custom headtube badge, brazed-on seat collar, custom bottom bracket and signature Hennepin Bridge dropouts. All-City added an E.D. coating for rust prevention before applying a classic wet paint finish. Attention to detail is All-City's mantra and it shows in every aspect of this meticulously-designed, beautifully-constructed track racer.
Surly Straggler 650b
$1,650.00
We think by now, most of you get what Straggler is. It's a madly versatile bike that can be used for most types of riding and riding surfaces. Better still is that you now have the option of 650b wheel size. 650b wheels were popular for a long time many years ago on 'Constructeur' style bicycles and we all know how real things were back in the day…650b wheels strike a nice balance between the benefits of both 26" and 700c sizes. The smaller wheel allows smaller riders to fit well on smaller frames, produces a stronger wheel, makes fitting big-ass tires easier and are more agile than their larger counterparts. 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. Straggler 650b has braze-ons for fenders, racks and bottle cages. The geometry is slightly different, with angles and tube lengths very close but not identical to the Cross-Check, but like the Cross-Check it's ready to take you just about anywhere. It's a day tripper and a weekender. It's a 'rough road' road bike. It's a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. It's a utilitarian townie. It's a light-duty touring bike. It's an all-weather commuter. And when you get tired of one set up, you can swap parts around and turn it into something else. We think that's pretty neat. - Fender eyelets at the dropouts, front and rear rack bosses and dual water bottle mounts, downtube shifter mounts - 100% Surly proprietary 4130 chromoly tubing. TIG-welded, double-butted main triangle - Forward-exiting horizontal dropouts with adjusters give you singlespeed compatibility and wheelbase adjustability to help you fit the tires and fenders you want to run with that drivetrain you want to run. - Frame is ED Coated for increased life expectancy
Cannondale Althea 1
$1,150.00
Althea is your ticket to enjoying the great outdoors! This smooth-riding bike combines the speed and efficiency of road cycling with a mountain bike's versatile character, creating a bike you'll love to ride no matter where you're headed. Smart-size road bike wheels paired to multi-surface tires roll fast on pavement and crushed gravel paths alike, and the 11-speed drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes keep you moving with ample gearing and control. A Suntour suspension fork helps take the bite out of rough roads, too, so you can ride farther with more comfort.
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 Pack Rat
$1,475.00
Over the years, Surly has been finding new and better ways to haul stuff on the front of their bikes - from fork braze-ons to racks to bags. The Pack Rat is the culmination of all those years and is specifically designed around porteur-style racks and front-loading optimization. Why would someone want to strap a bunch of crap to the front of their bike? Glad you asked. Having your stuff in front of you means it's close at hand and easily accessible. It also allows for better weight distribution. We've all ridden with a pannier full of groceries. Some of us have wiped out around a sketchy corner and watched as our precious eggs and bananas go flying every which way in an act of Mario Kart-level carnage. A front load keeps the bike nimble and allows you to more efficiently use your body to steer from the rear and avoid such a super market massacre. The drawback with front-loading on a lot of bikes, however, lies in how it affects the bike's handling. The weight pulls you through turns in an awkward sort of way as if the load is doing the steering and you don't even have control over your own life anymore. It makes for an overall less enjoyable ride. The Pack Rat's front cargo-specific design eliminates that steering issues but also rides great without cargo. There's no need to load it down with cans of beans every time you want to go for a ride. Unless that's your thing. We're not here to tell you how to live. In an effort to jumpstart your front cargo carrying dreams, Surly includes a 24-pack rack on the complete bike version. The Pack Rat rolls on 26-inch wheels in the smaller sizes and 650b wheels in the larger ones. Smaller diameter wheels keep the weight of the load lower than a 700c wheel would, thereby improving handling and ride feel. Pack Rat's fork also includes some handy internal routing for generator hubs so you can safely ride off into the night.

Surly Straggler
$1,650.00
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 them to make a disc version of their 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. Straggler shares all of the Cross-Check's braze-ons for fenders, racks and bottle cages. The Straggler's geometry is slightly different, with angles and tube lengths very close but not identical to the Cross-Check, but like the Cross-Check it's ready to take you just about anywhere. It's a day tripper and a weekender. It's a 'rough road' road bike. It's a cyclocross bike with no pretense about racing. It's a utilitarian townie. It's a light-duty touring bike. It's an all-weather commuter. And when you get tired of one set up, you can swap parts around and turn it into something else. We think that's pretty neat. - Fender eyelets at the dropouts, front and rear rack bosses and dual water bottle mounts, downtube shifter mounts - 100% Surly proprietary 4130 chromoly tubing.
