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.

Troll/Ogre wheels for a clydesdale - Alex Adventurer/tubeless ?s

I'm about 255ish with my riding gear. Alex Adventurer are the wheels that come 'out of box' with the Troll and Ogre. Are those considered quality wheels for a bigger dude? also, I have read a lot about tubeless, and wonder if that is something I should consider, or is the weight a bit much? I ... Read More »

Advice on going to a 2x on a Surly Troll

Hi- I'm wanting advice on converting a Surly Troll to a 2x. It has a 22, 36, 48 up front and a 12-36 rear cassette. I live in Costa Rica on the side of an extinct volcano (at least I hope it's extinct) so use the 22 every day. I'm planning on keeping the 22 granny and the 36. I was wonderin ... Read More »

Ogre vs. Troll - how did you decide?

I'm somewhat new to mountain biking and riding in general. I have an entry-level MTB now (Trek 820) that (due to 'real life') I spend far more time commuting on than off-roading. My commute is anywhere from 15-20 miles (Depending upon how squirrely I feel that morning, and how early I drag my ars ... Read More »
