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.

Dumb Ogre (and Troll, and ECR) rear brake question

Ok, so Surly says that the max rotor for the rear of the Ogre is 160mm, and requires the included adapter. I'm not completely understanding this, but there's probably something I need to learn. I'm running fenders and 60mm tires, so I have my axle set back with one set of monkey nuts. In this ... Read More »

Surly Troll fork on rigid Nishiki Cascade?

I recently came across a Nishiki Cascade in my size(xtra huge). I was wanting to change to a threadless headset with the obvious choices being a LHT fork or a troll fork. I really want to go with the troll but I am concerned about putting a suspension corrected fork on a rigid bike. Will this screw ... Read More »

Troll and a 1x1?

Does anyone have a Troll and a 1x1? I am thinking about getting a 1x1 so I can finally have a dedicated mountain bike, and make my Troll into a dedicated commuter/touring bike. Right now its a compromise between the two. I am thinking the Teaberry 1x1 is too good to pass up, and all of my frien ... Read More »
