Surly’s long awaited disc-brake brother to the Cross Check is finally here! The all new for 2014 Straggler is essentially a Cross Check with disc brakes, but not exactly. The geometry is slightly different (lower BB and wider wheelbase), but the braze-ons for fenders and racks are exactly the same. The Straggler can be run single-speed or geared thanks to Surly’s new, and very unique, forward-exiting horizontal dropouts. The dropouts have a rear-threaded stop screw to secure and position the rear wheel in place for optimal shifting when running gears or flip it around and use the front-threaded stop screw to keep chain tension on your single-speed setup. Surly’s devised this new trick dropout to keep the Straggler versatile, allowing you to run fenders or racks while still allowing easy access to take off the rear wheel. The 135mm rear hub spacing opens up a whole world of 29” mountain bikes wheels to be installed and the frame can accept up to 42c tires (with fenders!). The frame is made of Surly’s proprietary 4130 CroMoly tubing with ED coating to prevent rust. You’ve been asking for a drop-bar disc-brake bike and Surly definitely delivers with the all new Straggler.
