Surly Bikes brings you the Krampus. What exactly is the Krampus? Its big 29x3-inch tires make it look like a snow bike, but it's technically not, although it would certainly do better in the snow than your daddy's mountain bike.
The Krampus is a mountain bike made to be ridden hard and put away wet. The fat Surly Knard tires roll over the rough stuff even better than a typical 29er. The Shimano 1x10 drive train keeps things light and simple. The Avid BB7 disc brakes stop you when you want. Of course, Surly's 4130 cromoly frame and fork take the abuse and feel smooth under your delicate sensibilities. In stock now at Century Cycles in Small, Medium, and Large.
