Venture away from the crowded bike lanes and jump aboard Surly's Midnight Special for grand adventure on a plethora of forgotten back roads. The Midnight Special smooths chunky tarmac and bumpy dirt with its vibration-damping Chromoly steel frame and plump 650b x 47 WTB Horizon tires, allowing you to chase skyline beyond the city in total comfort. TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes are steadfast no matter the conditions, and SRAM's Rival 22 drivetrain has ample gearing for climbing mountain passes and gliding along expansive landscapes alike. Surly provides a few welcome touches of convenience to complement every ride, including three bottle mounts on the frame, front and rear rack provisions, and full fender mounts to keep you hydrated, well-prepared, and feeling sharp, even in the rain. The Midnight Special's touch points are appointed with Salsa's comfortable Cowbell bar and a WTB Volt Sport saddle, and thanks to modern, evolution-accommodating details like convertible dropouts, a 44mm headtube, and flat-mount brakes, you can count on the Midnight Special to be your partner in exploration through many years of service.
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. 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

Trek rewrote the rule book with their Emonda ALR 5. Fast, light, and absolute joy to ride, the Emonda is crafted from 300 Series aluminum. Trek's wizards whittled the invisibly welded frame down to a weight on par with its carbon competitors, and gave it a ride quality that makes every outing simply better. Fast? Shimano and Bontrager have that covered with a complete 105 11-speed group powered by wide range, compact cranks and tubeless-ready wheels. Ditch the tube, say goodbye to flats and feel the road beneath you like never before. The beautiful ride continues, the full Bonty cockpit follows the light and fast theme perfectly. This is a lightweight, premium aluminum bike that rides brilliantly and costs less than 2k. We don't know how Trek did it, but we're glad they did, and you will be too.
The Big Block represents All-City's vision of the ideal track frame for the modern fixed-gear rider. This is the track bike that they’ve always dreamed of owning and we 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 All-City 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 our mantra and it shows in every aspect of this meticulously-designed, beautifully-constructed track racer.
Specialized's Secteur Double boasts a lightweight and lively Specialized A1 Premium aluminum frame with a back-friendly riding position that keeps you feeling great mile after mile.

Surly's Long Haul Trucker enjoys a reputation as one of the best riding and most value-packed touring bikes out there. It's been around long enough to be tested in the real world, in all kinds of places, with all kinds of loads on all kinds of roads. Sometimes, however, a combination of load, climate and terrain demands a bit more braking performance than a standard rim-brake LHT can provide. That's where the Disc Trucker comes in. Disc Trucker is a Long Haul Trucker specifically designed for the unique forces discs impose. Surly made sure it can run discs, racks, and fenders with no jury rigging, a somewhat unique feature they've just now decided to call Simulpatibility. Most of the components on the complete bike are the same as the standard LHT; parts chosen for their balance of technical capability, durability, and value. The drivetrain uses the sort of wide gearing you will need for loaded and unloaded travel, cable operated disc brakes for their proven reliability and ease of service, and hubs that are durable and easy to maintain. You'll need to outfit it with the extras you want, like fenders and racks. Surly doesn't include that stuff because everybody's needs are different. From the casual commuter to the person who rides around the world more than once, the Disc Trucker is more than capable. It's a tool designed from the ground up to take you and a bunch of stuff just about anywhere you'd like to go. It is a tool to help you get lost and find yourself.
Off-road touring can be a zesty enterprise, but it’s not without its perils. Bicycles are simple machines that are extremely efficient, but all simple machines carry along with them the chance of breaking down. This efficiency can get you in trouble if your bike decides to break down far away from the comforts of your parent’s basement. If you’re going to ride your bicycles where no one can see, you better take gear that’s up to the task. Troll is up to the task. Surly's Troll was once a simple mountain bike frame with a few extras that made it nice for touring. The Troll has evolved into a frame that has been pushed deeper into the category of off-road touring. Its geometry is no longer suspension corrected, which gives it more room for a larger frame bag. The Troll is a bike that has one purpose – and that purpose is to carry you as far away from society as possible.
Get on Specialized's Allez E5 and go! This great road machine features Specialized's E5 Premium aluminum frame and a carbon fork for a sweet balance of low weight, comfort, and quickness.

And, you'll love the fast-rolling aluminum wheels, Specialized tires, and components, too.
Specialized's Tarmac Mid Compact boasts a Tour de France-developed FACT-carbon frame and fork. It will only take one ride for you to appreciate the supreme combination of low weight and ripping power transfer that's evident whenever the road tilts skyward or your friends pick up the pace. Component-wise, the Tarmac is adorned with a wide-ranging Shimano 18-speed drivetrain for conquering the hilliest of rides, and easy-rolling DT Swiss wheels for oodles of speed over any terrain. Plus, the Tarmac comes with grippy dual-pivot brakes for maximum control and a fine helping of Specialized's quality aluminum components.
Even if you own a different bike for everything, it's still necessary to have one that can do it all. That bike is the Space Horse. It's become a cult favorite because of its classic styling and ability to handle just about any task or terrain. All-City's Space Horse Disc frameset allows you to build your perfect bike with the addition of all-weather control disc brakes. The geometry is a mix of traditional road and randonneur, with a relatively short rear end and a bottom bracket that’s slightly lower than a standard road bike. This gives it both agile handling for riding unbridled and increased stability when loaded. This blend of geometry and 612 Select tubing create a bike that is capable of quick road centuries, gravel racing, commuting, and of course loaded touring. The frame accommodates front and rear racks, fenders, and tires up to 42c in size for the 700c bikes and 45c for the 650B version. It also utilizes a dropout with a replaceable derailleur hanger. All of the classic All-City touches are present: signature brazed-on seat collar, pantographed bottom bracket shell, pump peg, reinforcements on the bottle bosses, and a beautiful lugged crown fork. The fork sports both a double eyelet on the dropout and mid-blade mounts to allow you to use pretty much whatever front rack you wish.

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's 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 27.5+ sizes also feature two sets 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.

Hitting a sweet spot between performance and value, the Roubaix Sport was designed to thrive on long rides through rough country. The lightweight frame has been constructed from our FACT 9r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts and, compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient geometry. Through some sophisticated engineering, however, we've managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that we've all come to love from the SL4, and kept it consistent throughout the size-range with our Rider-First Engineered construction. Of course, you're probably thinking, "get on to the suspension thing up front." We call it Future Shock, and essentially, it's a piston in the head tube with 20mm of travel. We developed this technology in partnership with McLaren Applied Technologies, and the result of this is a host of drastic performance improvements, namely in the vertical compliance department. Without giving a physics lecture, we found that focusing on vertical compliance, instead of fork splay, meant that we could improve smoothness, speed, and comfort in one fell swoop. And of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the Roubaix outperforms anything on the market. Lastly, we spec'd the Roubaix Sport with 105 11-speed mechanical shifting, hassle-free Tektro Spyre mechanical disc brakes, and DT R470 Disc wheels that have been cased in our Turbo Pro 28mm tires. - Features our Rider-First Engineered design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that you'd expect from a Roubaix. The FACT 9r frameset holds its own with our highest-end carbon offerings, with the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness, while the all-new Future Shock "suspension" system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control. - DT R470 Disc wheels feature reliable, sealed cartridge hubs, and 24 front and rear spokes that keeps weight low and durability high. - Shimano's 105 shifting and hydraulic disc brakes ensure reliable shifting and stopping power in a variety of conditions.

The Diverge Sport A1 from Specialized, a full capable street, dirt road, gravel path, anywhere-you-want-to-ride exploration machine. Specialized A1 aluminum makes for a light, fast frame and a FACT carbon fork soaks up the road chatter out front. Some days it feels like you can't find a flat bit of ground to pedal across, and that's when Shimano's 18-speed Sora drivetrain shines. Hills, flats, and descents, it has the quick-shifting, wide gear range performance it takes to conquer any and all roads, while a pair of Tektro disc brakes put the stops to the fun when needed.

The Dolce will take you places you've never dreamed of.

Paired with tacky Specialized tires and corner-carving Axis Classic wheels, and you'll be adding bonus miles to the route home. Integrated shifters, smooth, easy lever action, and a gear range that topples mountains are right under your hands thanks to Shimano's 16-speed Claris drivetrain. And when it comes to comfort, it's hard to do better than Specialized components and a sleek, supportive women's-specific Body Geometry saddle.
TTs are one of the ultimate tests. The wind conspires against you, the sun bakes you and the never-yielding clock just keeps ticking away. Trek's Speed Concept 7.8 is your only friend in this harsh world. This full-carbon secret weapon uses unique Kammtail shapes that actually make you faster, even in cross winds. Of course Trek tuned the carbon so it's exceedingly stiff where you need it to be and compliant where you want it for comfort. Then they hid the rear brake, cables, quick releases and even the computer sensor from the wind. Plus, the specs are all aero, all the time, with slippery Aura 5 wheels, carbon aero bars and extensions, and a carbon seatpost. Then they top it off with a 20-speed SRAM Force drivetrain with TT shifters. You can only count on yourself out on the course, and your Speed Concept.
So long Zertz. It's been fun, but we found someone better for us. In our humble opinion, the Roubaix Comp with Ultegra Di2 represents the future of road bikes, and with one ride, you'll feel exactly why. The super-light frame has been constructed from our FACT 10r carbon fiber. Its stiffness levels are also off the charts and, compared to the SL4 iteration of yesteryear, you'll experience a whole new, faster, and more efficient geometry. Through some sophisticated engineering, however, we've managed to keep the same fit, feel, and position that we've all come to love from the SL4, and kept it consistent throughout the size-range with our Rider-First Engineered construction.

And of all the bikes that we've tested with our Rolling Efficiency Model, the Roubaix outperforms anything on the market. This Roubaix Comp comes equipped Shimano's latest Ultegra 8050 Di2 shifting, hydraulic 8070 disc brakes, and alloy DT R470 Disc wheels. - Features our Rider-First Engineered design that ensures every frame size has the same legendary responsiveness and smooth ride quality that you'd expect from a Roubaix. The FACT 10r frameset holds its own with our highest-end carbon offerings, with the ideal blend of light overall weight and targeted stiffness, while the all-new Future Shock "suspension" system at the cockpit delivers a revolutionary degree of comfort and control. - DT R470 Disc wheels feature reliable, sealed cartridge hubs, and 24 front and rear spokes that keeps weight low and durability high. - Shimano's new Ultegra Di2 with hydraulic disc brakes not only offers exceptionally smooth and crisp shifts, but it also provides incredible stopping power and modulation.
Specialized offers the next generation of their race-bred S-Works Tarmac, now coupled with the effortless control and power of disc brakes. Inspired by Specialized’s partnership with McLaren—leaders in Formula 1 development—the S-Works Tarmac is a revolution on the road, one that begins and ends with the rider. Each of the seven frame sizes were developed independently, based on real-world data collected from test riders. Specialized measured power transfer and steering response in each frame size to optimize ride quality and on-the-road performance for every rider, regardless of size. Proven in the Pro Tour, Shimano's 11-speed Dura-Ace Di2 drivetrain is matched with an S-Works FACT carbon crankset for fast, precision shifting no matter the conditions. Shimano's 785 hydraulic disc brakes showcase high modulation and stopping power with Shimano's Ice Tech rotors to control heat build up and brake fade. Specialized's Roval Rapide CLX 40 carbon disc wheels feature buttery smooth CeramicSpeed bearings spin 40mm-deep carbon rims for unbeatably low rotating weight and blinding acceleration. With a pair of Specialized's supple, 24mm-wide S-Works Turbo tires, you're ready to start carving up your favorite descent. Only top-tier components are good enough for an S-Works frame, so Specialized equipped this thoroughbred with carbon bars and a FACT carbon seatpost to damp road vibration, as well as a Body Geometry Toupe Pro saddle dressed up with carbon rails.
Trek's Domane 5 Series was developed for Fabian Cancellara to crush the cobbles of Europe. Turns out the things he wanted—speed, efficiency and comfort with zero compromise in weight or performance—are things we all want. Hand made from Trek's 500 Series OCLV Carbon, it's light and stiff, and with genius ideas like their IsoZone tech, it's compliant too. Race-all-day geometry gives you the edge over the competition with confidence-inspiring handling while the specs keep you at the front of the peloton. An Ultegra drivetrain with triple cranks dishes out the silky shifting that Shimano is renowned for and Bontrager's Race Lite wheels are wrapped with 25c tires for the perfect combination of speed, low rolling resistance and ride quality. What's more, Trek keeps the 5.2 firmly in the featherweight class with a carbon bar, seatmast and fork.
Saddle up on Specialized's Tarmac Apex Mid-Compact and go to the front of the pack. Its FACT-carbon frame and fork boast a supreme combination of feathery weight and ripping power transfer that you'll appreciate whenever the road tilts skyward or your friends pick up the pace. You also have a quick-shifting SRAM Apex 20-speed drivetrain for conquering any ride, and wind-cheating DT Swiss wheels for oodles of speed over any terrain. Plus, the Elite comes with grippy dual-pivot brakes for maximum control and a fine helping of Specialized's quality aluminum components.
What do large sprinters and wispy climbers have in common? They animate races and regularly win on Specialized's S-Works Tarmac SL4. This pro-level rocket uses Specialized's FACT 11r-carbon in the frame and fork for phenomenal stiffness and remarkably low weight. Specialized's engineering prowess shines through with a one-piece oversize bottom bracket/chainstay that also trims weight while improving the all-important drivetrain stiffness. Combine that with a tapered head tube, internal cable routing, and a pro-proven geometry and charging for the finish or launching attacks in the steeps results in an explosion of speed. The specs are just as high end. It's loaded with a 20-speed SRAM RED group, ceramic bearing Roval wheels and Specialized's world-class S-Works carbon components.
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.
