Custom Build: Surly Straggler

This disc equipped, do-it-all steel rig will take pretty much anything you can throw at it….and then some.


We often get people coming in looking for that one bike that ticks all the boxes, the only problem being that they haven’t considered steel as a potential candidate for the frame material.


Once you explain all of the advantages, and they take the bike for a spin, they quickly sold.

Other great advantages include clearance for up to 44c tyres, room for full mudguards, and mounts for pannier racks.  you can even build it up as a single speed if you so wish.  It truly is the last frame you will ever need!

This particular build features a complete Shimano 105 11-speed groupset with cable discs, Mavic Aksium Disc wheelset, and enough sweet finishing touches to make one rad looking bike.
