Product Description

The SurlyTroll defies logic and description. Is it a hardtail MTB? A commuter? ATouring bike? A snow/sand bike? Well, yes. Surly designed itTo be an incredibly versatile, 26" wheel mountain bike, but its unlike most mountain bikes youve seen...For starters it has clearance for massiveTires (2.7"), unheard of in a hardtail frame.The slopingToptube with gusset provides plenty of standover clearance, even withThe big rubber or a 100mm/4" suspension fork fitted (a 4130 chromoly rigid matching fork i

Strengths:    cromoly!! sliding dropouts, v-brake or disc, slim tubes, color is pretty cool and unique. i love the stand over height it gives you, its very forgiving.

Weaknesses:    not enough water bolt ons, surly could add some on the fork and downtube.

Bottom Line:   
If you are looking for something that will stand out this is it! its cool cuz of the color, lol. Actually i ride lots of XC and this bike is perfect for that and then some. i have 2.2 bontragers on it now and there's tons of space for bigger tires. overal i stand out for being the one guy riding a rigid bike. Actually its not that bad having a fully rigid bike, i think it makes you sharper. I would not recommend this bike to older riders unless you plan on using a suspension fork. honestly it looks so cool the paint is out standing! buy it if you want versatility and if ur just feed up with aluminum and want something different.

This bike rocks. Frame is very sturdy. It can be built into the bike of your dreams. Would prefer other colour options like black, otherwise cannot fault the troll and highly recommend to all.

Can a troll be made to have the same effective geometry as a cross check?

By effective I mean can it, with the right height seat post with the right set back and the right stem, be made to have the same seating position as the cross check? Also, on an unrelated note, I didn't want to start a thread over it, but if you need a 110mm stem, is the bike too small?Read More »
