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.
What happens when you put a mountain bike, road bike, and touring bike in a blender and hit go? The Sutra. Call it the drop bar bike for mountain bikers, the most capable touring bike, or the beast of all burdens, but the Sutra is definitely one thing: badass. 700c wheels make it fast-rolling. Beefier tires make rough terrain disappear, and there’s just something really special about the feel of a steel frame in motion. The Sutra is many things. It’s gorgeous. It’s stylish. It’s incredibly versatile, and it comes ready for the long haul on the bike tour of your dreams. Our Kona chromoly steel frame is outfitted with a Brooks saddle, cork bar tape, bar-end shifters, fenders, and rear rack. It also features a Shimano Deore 3x10 drivetrain to give you maximum gearing and smooth-rolling WTB STi23 36h WTB rims for those long days on the pavement. It’s quite the looker right out of the box, and it’s ready for your biggest adventure.
