Surly Straggler is the disc-brake version of Surly's popular Cross-Check cyclocross bicycle. Take the same 4130 chromoly steel frame of the Cross-Check, the same versatile design that makes it ideal for racing, touring, commuting, Towpath cruising, and just about any other conditions you can throw at it. Add in Avid's sure-stopping BB7 mechanical disc brakes.
"But wait," you're saying. "I don't like those bar-end shifters that Surly puts on their bikes." Your dreams have been fulfilled, because the Straggler comes with a Shimano Tiagra 2x10-speed drive train, including Tiagra integrated brake/shift levers! The rear cassette is a friendly 11-32 tooth, giving you plenty of gears to crank up your favorite (and not-so-favorite) hills.
So, now that you don't have any more excuses, come on in to your closest Century Cycles store and try out the Surly Straggler! We have them in stock, with a 54cm in Black (Rocky River), and a 56cm (Medina) and 58cm (Peninsula) in Purple Glitter Dreams (shown above).
