All-City Macho Man
$1,499.00
All-City's Macho Man has been many things to many people — back alley bandit, CX shredder, all-round road runner — and now it's back for more fun, more comfort, more style, and in more sizes than ever. You get all the features that made Macho Man great in the first place, like a 612 Select chromoly frame and fork, disc brakes, double bottle cage mounts, plus hidden fender and rear rack mounts, but with size-specific wheels to accommodate smaller frame geo's and flat-bar, laid-back comfort for cruising all day. Take it across town for happy hour, make it your full-time commuter, or prove your mettle in the next Bandit Cross event. This Macho Man's built for you.
All-City Macho Man Disc
$1,599.00
If your cross bike functions as an everyday mount that you use for ripping trails, bombing alleys, commuting, riding in the wet and generally getting rad, the Macho Man Disc is your new best friend. It adds the all-weather stopping power and mud clearance of disc brakes to an incredibly durable 612 Select chromoly cyclocross frame and fork, as well as the ability to fit smaller riders with 650B wheel options on select frame sizes. The result is a favorite with the cross crowd, trail riders, gravel racers, and commuters. All-City spec'd the Macho Man Disc with proven components that don't shy away from a little mud. The streamlined SRAM Apex 1 drivetrain gets you through the mud, over the barriers, and down the road on your daily commute. Sturdy WTB/Joytech wheels wrapped in 700 x 33mm Clement MXP tires (650b x 41mm Surly Knard for the smaller folks) make short work of on and off-road rides and Promax mechanical disc brakes provide reliable speed control in all types of weather. Finishing touches include rust-fighting ED coating and hidden fender mounts for those less than perfect training rides and trips downtown.
All-City Space Horse Disc
$1,499.00
Combine two parts versatility, one part bike-fueled thirst for the open road, and a dash of Minnesota-bred style, and you've got yourself All-City's Space Horse Disc. The 612 Select chromoly frame and fork blend traditional touring and randonneuring geometry for a bike that's at home on a fully-loaded trek across the state or commuting to and from work. The smaller sizes are designed around 650B wheels to offer a better fit to smaller riders. A relatively short rear end and a bottom bracket that’s slightly lower than a standard road bike give it both agile handling for riding unbridled and increased stability when loaded. With the addition of the all-weather control of Promax disc brakes, this Space Horse is without a doubt the best version yet.  A complete set of rack and fender braze-ons let you dress up the Space Horse in whatever livery you need for your particular adventure. The long and winding road calls for equipment you can count on, and the SRAM Apex 20-speed drivetrain promises smooth shifts and hill-topping gearing for miles to come. The whole package rolls on a pair of quality WTB rims and VEE Speedster tires that offer unbelievable traction in wet or dry conditions. And all the usual All-City details are present, including a rust-fighting ED coating, a stylish integrated seatpost clamp, and signature All-City dropouts with a removable derailleur hanger.
Electra Ticino 7D

Great for everyday transportation and light touring, the Ticino® picks up where bike builders of the 40s and 50s left off, giving it a true handcrafted feel not found in many of today’s cookie-cutter bikes. Named for an Italian influenced area of Switzerland, Ticino’s design aesthetic, craftsmanship and frame integrity are inspired by the vintage bikes once ridden throughout the region. The retro-inspired hubs, cranksets, chainrings, handlebars, forks, pedals and hammered-finish alloy fenders show classic craftsmanship. But this thing is far from a relic. When it comes to performance, the Ticino is decked with modern components custom-manufactured by Electra. But it’s more than just a pretty face. The Ticino sports fast-rolling 700c wheels and a lightweight frame, for a fine-tuned, smooth gliding ride. Love is in the details, and after one look at the Ticino you’ll be ready for a serious commitment. - 6061-T6 aluminum frameset - Investment-cast crown, tapered-leg, steel fork - Shimano 7-speed Altus drivetrain - Shimano TX50 thumb shifter plus - Forged alloy crankset w/42t chainring dual guards - Shimano cantilever brakes - 32h low flange alloy hubset - Double-wall alloy rims - 700 x 35c tires - Ticino dual-density saddle - Hammered alloy fenders

Surly Big Dummy
$2,150.00
Big Dummy is a long-tail cargo bike, which means that not only can you haul a serious amount of cargo, different accessories can be added to your Big Dummy frame and deck depending on what you want to carry. Being a dedicated single-piece frame, instead of an add-on to an existing bike, it's stiffer and resistant to torsional flex, which provides a better ride and longer lasting frame than long-tail add-ons. Like all Surly's frames, it's made of their size specific, 4130 CroMoly steel – a tube set engineered for cargo that sports lots of little touches that you've come to love in a Surly, like clearance for big tires and the use of common component sizes. Figure on being able to carry about 200 pounds (90kg) of cargo. The load weight, and how it's loaded, will affect the handling somewhat. Also, plan on using gears, especially as cargo weight increases. This may seem obvious, but as you get comfy with it, you will use your full range of gears as never before. The parts kit is good quality, and suitable to loaded as well as unloaded riding. It's got a 3x10 drivetrain, Avid BB7 disc brakes, quality Shimano Deore hubs, and 26x2.3" Kenda Kiniption tires. They've outfitted it with Surly-designed bags, deck, rails and Dummy Rail Collars; everything you need for the majority of stuff you might carry, like groceries, shovels, bags of charcoal or mulch, guitars, lamps, mannequins, whatever. Bags, deck, rails, and rail collars are all designed to improve on previous offerings and work together to make sure your stuff is transported with safety and stability. It's an unbending interface, which when you're carrying lots of cargo, is a good thing to have. Get creative, and get hauling. If you intend to carry a passenger on your Big Dummy, Surly requires use of their Dummy Rail Collars. These provide a secondary retention system for the rack, as well as stiffen the rack system. These are included with current Big Dummy bikes and frames, as well as available for older Big Dummy bikes and frames (compatible with all generations of Big Dummy bikes/frames). In addition, a stoker handlebar set up, found on tandem bicycles, is recommended as well. Make sure to check with seat post manufacturer for stoker handlebar compatibility. If you are planning to carry a child on your Big Dummy, Surly recommends the use of a child seat. They've tested the Maxxi Yepp seat. Yepp makes an adaptor that allows their seat to mount onto Surly's deck. It works well with the Big Dummy. At this time other child seats are not recommended and will void your warranty. Surly is testing other options. For the most up to date compatibility/options, check http://www.surlybikes.com/safety Note: keep in mind Big Dummy weight limits when carrying a passenger.
Surly Cross Check Flat Bar Bike
$925.00
The bicycle is a great way to get around. It’s a lot less expensive than a car and a lot less crowded than public transportation. These days, many bicycle companies forsake practicality in the name of speed, weight, or some other frivolity. Well, not us. Behold the Flat Bar Cross-Check: a different take on an old favorite, and a go-to for those seeking solid two-wheel, non-motorized transport. It’s still the same Surly Cross-Check frame that has reliably carried people from here to there for decades, only with a spec that moves it deeper into the category of practical transportation. The Cross-Check frame is constructed of our size-specific 4130 CroMoly ‘Natch tubing and adorned with a simple and straight forward build kit comprised of SRAM X5 components, tough Alex rims, and our do-it-all Knard 41 tire. Instead of the standard drop bar, there’s a comfy flat bar with a 27-degree sweep to keep you sitting pretty, and an MSW Pork Chop rear rack to carry you and all of your stuff with the greatest of ease. One of our goals with this bike was to keep the price tag low and the usefulness high. That way, you’ll have some cash leftover just in case you want to stop for a happy hour on the way home from work.

Surly Pack Rat
$1,475.00
Over the years, Surly has been finding new and better ways to haul stuff on the front of their bikes — from fork braze-ons to racks to bags. The Pack Rat is the culmination of all those years and is specifically designed around porteur-style racks and front-loading optimization. Why would someone want to strap a bunch of crap to the front of their bike? Glad you asked. Having your stuff in front of you means it’s close at hand and easily accessible. It also allows for better weight distribution. We’ve all ridden with a pannier full of groceries. Some of us have wiped out around a sketchy corner and watched as our precious eggs and bananas go flying every which way in an act of Mario Kart-level carnage. A front load keeps the bike nimble and allows you to more efficiently use your body English to steer from the rear and avoid such a super market massacre. The drawback with front-loading on a lot of bikes, however, lies in how it affects the bike’s handling. The weight pulls you through turns in an awkward sort of way as if the load is doing the steering and you don’t even have control over your own life anymore. It makes for an overall less enjoyable ride. The Pack Rat’s front cargo-specific design eliminates that steering issues but also rides great without cargo. There’s no need to load it down with cans of beans every time you want to go for a ride. Unless that’s your thing. We’re not here to tell you how to live. In an effort to jumpstart your front cargo carrying dreams, Surly includes a 24-pack rack on the complete bike version. The Pack Rat rolls on 26” wheels in the smaller sizes and 650b wheels in the larger ones. Smaller diameter wheels keep the weight of the load lower than a 700c wheel would, thereby improving handling and ride feel. Pack Rat’s fork also includes some handy internal routing for generator hubs so you can safely ride off into the night. Dedicated commuters, credit card tourers, those who enjoy the occasional sub-24 campout, and sweaty back people looking to leave their backpack behind need look no further than the Pack Rat.
Surly Straggler 650b
$1,650.00
650b what? In the old days when randonneuring bikes ruled on long rides over mixed surfaces, the 650b tire size was perfectly suited for moving fast under control. Surly took this concept and applied it to the Straggler, a disc brake-equipped any-road type of bike bred from their revered Cross Check. The slightly smaller wheels accommodate smaller frame sizes and plump tire widths, creating options where few exist in this realm of bike riding. Disc brakes highlight the Straggler 650b story, sporting Hayes CX Experts with 160mm rotors front and rear. The athletic character continues with a SRAM Apex 2x10 drivetrain, giving you a useful gear range for any type of riding you can dream up, and continues with 32-hole alloy Alex Adventurer 2 rims wrapped in Surly's own super-versatile 650b x 41 Knard rubber. A Salsa Cowbell handlebar is great for riding on mixed terrain, too, giving you a bit more control when it's loose while retaining comfortable positioning for cranking into the wind. Make it your gravel explorer on weekends, your trusty commuter during the week, and go collect all the hand-ups when cyclocross season rolls around. This Straggler's lookin' for a good time and you seem like the type to oblige.
